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?

    Nice dips and chin-ups for someone your size. I can barely pull-up myself 10x BW and I'm a lightweight.

    Impressive lifts allround mate. You said you used to be the 'thin guy' - now you're squatting 300+ and DLing nearly 500 haha.

    Not so little anymore lol.

    Currently battling a cold. No weights until I'm feeling 100%. Hopefully back to it tomorrow.

    ^-For sure. I realize I contradicted my own post where I said I wouldn't train till I was feeling 100% but I didn't care, I had to do something, lol.

    Are you doing your OHP at varying heights? Or just full range?

    Thanks CoCoa. I've surprised myself actually. I was expecting poor numbers for a few sessions after being sick but these last two training sessions have felt really good. Perhaps I should take a break from training more often, lol.

    Full range. Touch the collar bone and up to a full lock-out for every rep.

    I would stop the OHP for a bit... do incline bench as a secondary bar movement. And leave the inclined dumbbell movement out if you do this...
