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?

    Exercises for my neck and forearms?

    I need exercises for my neck and forearms. They're very skinny especially my neck. I'm already doing the SS training as follows...

    Monday-
    Squats
    Bench Press
    Deadlift

    Wednesday-
    Squats
    Powercleans
    Overhead Press

    Friday-
    Squats
    Bench Press
    Deadlift

    I didn't add any of my own exercises so far I've stayed strictly to the given format. But I feel like my neck and forearms are so thin I can wrap my thumb and index finger around it my forearms. And my neck...well....it's very slim too.

    Edit: I want to show pics but I need a camera....lol

    Do that routine and eat a lot. They will grow with the rest of your body.

    Why are so many people worried about their forearms? The only way you're going to get them big is when the rest of you is huge. And if you do somehow get them disproportionately larger than the people who have them who deadlift 5 plates for reps then you're going to look stupid (but you never will). Deadlift, don't use straps on pulls. Do preachers and hammers. Eat. And wait.

    Edit - The same rings true for a neck. You're routine will definetely get you there, but it's going to take time. Don't gauge progress by these miniscule muscles and one day you'll wake up and realize they did get freaky big.
