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?

    Theres lots. A basic benchpress works. Weighted dips... They each work your entire chest. You can do inclines or declines too.

    As far as frequency, a basic 5x5 routine where you hit your entire body 3x a week would probably be best for someone at your weight.

    Generally, if you read a piece of advice on the internet, assume it's wrong until proven otherwise. This applies especially to "conventional wisdom". -Belial

    Bench Press and Dips should do the trick but at 140lbs I wouldn't think your chest would be big. Your other numbers are really high for your age/weight if they are legit.
