The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Training Alteration

    Hi I'm a new member and joined in case I ever came up with any new questions. While I have never lifted before for the most part, I workout regularly at home. Currently I'm doing six sets of 60 pushups and situps as well as 3 sets of pyramid curls ten reps at each weight with weights of 20, 25, 30, and 35 pounds. I do this 3 days a week. Will it be a big difference if i cut it down to 3 sets of pushups and situps and 2 sets of the curls? I like the size I am now and don't want to get smaller, but this is time consuming and I am currently hard pressed to find the time to do this.

    2 sets is enough stimulation for growth as long as they are intense and progressive. In other words, you will have to find ways to add more weight to the exercises.

    You wont get smaller if your diet remains constant.

    I find it hard to believe that you're pressed for time to do this workout. How long does it normally take you?

    If you're looking to get the same workload done in a shorter amount of time I would recommend adding weight to your push-ups and sit-ups.
