The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    bicep curl form

    I have learnt when doing bicep curls with either a BB or DB the upperarms should be kept anchored to the side, but when my arms get to chest level I find it impossible not to move my upper arm forward if I want to bring the BB/DB all the way up ~ so can I assume the curl is done only up to chest level?

    In a curl, it is only required that you close the elbow joint for full contraction of the bicep muscle. Most people over-exagerate the range of motion and try to bring the weights all the way up. That will cause the upper arm to move.
