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 couple of Noobie questions

    Hey guys,

    I've been weightlifting for about a month now. I have two questions for you that I haven't found an answer for yet.

    First how do I push myself completely without spotter? I feel like if I'm going all out I'm going to hold back if I think might need help.

    How long should I pause between reps? If I have to wait 15 seconds between reps in a set am I trying to push too much weight?

    Thanks!

    Use a cage or rack for a spotter.

    That's a long pause. You should crack out the reps unless you're doing 20 rep "breathing" exercises.
