The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    First of all when you say curl bar do you mean a straight bar or an EZ curl bar (kind that has the bends in it) If you have a straight bar the obvious answer that comes to mind is Bench Press. Do you have a bench?
    Front lateral raises will help build up the front shoulder/chest area as well.

    Be prepared to get for only wanting to work out your chest. I would suggest working out some other body parts as well to develop your body as a whole. You can do a heck of a lot with just a bar in addition to bench. There is the Dead Lift, and Squats if you have a rack. Good luck
    If your shins ain't bleeding then it's not a Dead Lift

    you could take the curl bar to a gym and then set it down and use their benches.

    Load some decent size plates onto your curl bar. Set it on the floor. Assume the pushup position with your hands on the outside curves of the curl bar. Do strict pushups. When you can't do anymore, go to a knee and do a few more. Repeat. A few days later, do it again but add a rep or two. If you have a backpack, you can put some weight in it and do weighted pushups.

    This is the most effective chest workout you'll get with your setup.

    You can always just look at it and envision yourself with a bigger chest. It's all about imagination with the situation you're faced with. Gyms aren't so bad.
