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?

    I will vote for this answer. As far as feeling it more in the chest - If you lean forward dips become more of a chest exercise, when you lean back more the load transfers to the triceps. I would also use chin-ups to put more load on the biceps.

    Maybe a little exagerated on my part, but my biceps have grown a little bit, which is significant for me because I couldn't get them to grow last year when I worked out for a whole year, although I got them stronger. I have surpassed my gains from last year now that I have more of a "Solid" program, including my awesome squats exercises which I believe have contributed strength to all my exercises.

    I could do 8 pull ups, not consecutively. I did 5 consecutively and then got up there again and did 3 more.

    Many things that have contributed to my bench pressing and helped in exercises like pulls was resting enough, sleeping well, and definitely healing my shoulders and shoulder joints Shoulders ALWAYS hurt when I tried to do pull ups, now they don't because I have learned to take care of them. Seriously, shoulder joints are just involved in most good lifts and exercises that if you are not recovered, you can't do crap :S I was one of those that could take off the shirt because of shoulder pain. I have learned a lot from this site and other. Great, great, great information and useful one

    Lifting big was never so fun
