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 don't think it matters. Experiment and see what works best for you.

    I personally have started doing some OHP after my dynamic bench work. Other guys I lift with like doing them on max effort day.

    Do what works for you. I do my over head presses on bench day and do the bent raises on back day.

    Just be careful not to overdo it at first. Many guys will do a normal ME bench rotation of exercises and DE work that is often too heavy and then try to do heavy overhead presses on top of that and end up beating up their shoulders. If doing overhead work on DE day, just start with a moderate weight for moderate reps and build very slowly over time as you see how you react.

    Doing it on DE day can be risky if you don't have a lot of experience. Many guys end up going too heavy.

    If done on ME day it's best to keep it as an accessory movement. It's not going to be super beneficial to use that as your max effort movement for the day.
