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?

    a question about power cleans

    i have recently traded up to power cleans from barbell rows. i really enjoy the movement but i do have one query. considering i am using a lot of lower body power to pull the wieght from the floor and then essentially "whipping" the weight onto my my shoulders from my hips...are my lats getting less of a workout than they were when i did barbell rows? i feel as if the power cleans are more of a full body movement and great for explosiveness but will they illicit sufficient lat development? i hope so :P

    Power cleans aren't really for lats (though they do use them a little). Just throw in some pull-ups and you'll be fine.

    You are cleaning wrong.

    You can add rows for extra stimulation if you want.
