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?

    lol on the description of your armz... it's best to start off these things by knowing where you're coming from: what are your stats (ht, wt, age, Squat#, Bench#, DL#)? How do you train? How do you eat?
    Give us that and we can begin honing in on your issue...

    Are you historically lazy when it comes to doing squats, deadlifts, benches, overheads, rows and chins? How about historically lazy when it comes to eating?

    I must be a curlbro if I was talking about curls. why would someone want to work their bicep over their ulterior pectoid

    how much were you guys curling when you noticed you have "guns"

    or is it a bodyfat issue? i'm 5'10-5'11 180'ish

    i deadlift and squat, don't get nerdy compound bodybuilder on me

    No, I said you sound like a curlbro because you said that you're lazy with your triceps, you have the arms of a 12-year-old Saigon hooker, and you wanted arms like Marky Mark. Marky Mark is a scrawny phaggot who doesn't even lift and is obviously a curlbro.

    I always get complimented on my arms and for most of my training years I did not do direct arm work, I just destroy myself on back and chest and that hits the arms hard. I am now 205lb at 13.5%, I haven't done curls in a while, I don't want to sound cocky or anything but I don't think that 135lb would even be a working set if I am shooting for my normal rep range.

    Well, certainly not with that attitude.

    Doing sets of 2 reps with heavy weight is probably not watch you need to be doing if you're trying to grow your arms. Go with a lighter weight and stay in the 8-15 rep range.

    For a frame of reference how big are your arms? I a have seen far too many jacked asian girls for the saigon reference to work on me.

    So you do heavy pressing pulling and leg work, and are eating enough to sustain growth, then you are probably doing all you can.
    Move heavy weight, eat, sleep, repeat.
    Geniuses make complicated scenarios simple, morons take simple concepts and complicate them.

    I found this out about 3 months ago and my mind was blown as well.

    To the OP I agree with KristianT (except for the stats). I would worry about rows and pullups, and then add some curls at the end of the day if you want to. But your arms won't grow a whole lot unless you gain some weight.
