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?

    Wrist curls, reverse curls, gripping exercises (grippers - Ivanko, Iron Minds, etc.), pulling exercises - deadlifts, bent rows, lat pulls.

    I use an Ivanko gripper 2X a week at home sitting in front of the TV.

    If you have an arm day, depending upon how much bis you do, I'd replace a bi exercise with reverse curls and add in a couple of sets of wrist curls.
    Give chalk a chance.

    I've just been doing wrist curls and reverse wrist curls with dumbbells at the end of the workout. I think you're supposed to do a bit more reps when working the forearms too because they are made of smaller muscles... Don't quote me on this though.
