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?

    Triceps Pulldown/Pushdown HELP!

    Why is it that I don't get sore any more after doing tricep pulldowns with a rope or silver metal attachment. I also did dips and kickbacks, but still not feeling that "Correct spot soreness the day after"
    ANY HELP ON TRICEP SCULPTING WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED

    The reason you don't get sore anymore is because your body has adjusted to the exercise(s).

    That said, soreness means nothing. Soreness is not a gauge of muscle building or workout intensity. Soreness only means you are sore.

    BigBoy55 - What type of sets/reps/intensity are you currently performing for the exercises that you mentioned? And how long have you been using the same template or program?

    aside from soreness being from bradykinin being released and an increase in nerve growth factor making the nerve endings hypersensitive, inflammation, and actual fiber tears.. youve weeded out the weak muscle fibers and are now less susceptible to that doms. So as you are more conditioned, you get less sore. Soreness shouldnt be a goal.

    Generally, if you read a piece of advice on the internet, assume it's wrong until proven otherwise. This applies especially to "conventional wisdom". -Belial
