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?

    correct form on BO Rows

    I've started doing this exercise, but am unsure on the correct form. I've looked at several videos on YouTube to try to find the correct form, but it seems they are always different. Should my back be parallel? Are the reps continuous, or do I rest the weight on the floor after each rep?

    I've been keeping my back parallel and I rest the weight on the floor after each rep. Can anyone find me a reliable video?

    Thanks for the help

    45 degree angle, keep bar close to body, pull to the belly button.

    You are talking about Pendlay rows.

    It seems like everyone does them different; anything from a 45-90 degree angle and brining the bar anywhere from upper to lower abs. What you've been doing are Pendlay Rows, and they are not a bad variation at all. Just keep from cheating too much and using too much momentum and you're good.
