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?

    Hey Chris

    I've been following the routine you told me, and I was wondering....ok, for my back I did:

    1 set (palms in) pullups x 3 reps (all i could do)

    3 supersets
    -(palms in) pulldowns
    -(palms out, wide grip) pulldowns

    1 set of db rows

    2 sets of long cable rows

    I put in the palms in pulldowns and pullups because it allows me to use more weight, just wondering if that sounds good to you.

    The grip thing is fine. Did I provide that exact routine? If I did, I think I might have recommended a tad much. I would either not do the supersets and just pick one of the exercises for 2 sets (1 of the 2 superset exercises), or drop it down to 1 or possibly 2 supersets, not 3.

    I believe you recommended 2, but I kinda like to do 3.

    Lol, well, fair enough. If it works, then do it. If you start to feel overtrained, cut it back a tad.
