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?

    I've always tried to concentrate on keeping my elbows in with this exercise, as that is what I was instructed. Is elbow placement of paramount importance?

    Skulls are one of the most "cheated on" excercises out there. I see guys flaring out their elbows on skulls all the time. It's VERY easy to cheat. So watch that.

    And, if you're feeling really ambitious one day, try them with a reverse grip. That makes them cheat-proof. But start light with this; it takes some getting used to.

    Thanks guys, that's kind of what I thought. My tricepts are naturally very strong, and it seems the more weight I add to my skull crushers, the more pressure it is putting on my elbows. I think it is my body trying to tell me something, and I think it is time for Mark V to find another tricept exercise.

    ... Reverse grip skull crushers... I don't think I'll EVER be that brave. "Hey man, what happened to your eye/forehead/nose" ... "I don't want to talk about it"
