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?

    increasing weight or staying at same reps..

    i was wondering if i should increase weight and do less reps with each set, or stay at the same weight and continue to pump out 10 reps on leg extensions, leg curls and leg presses.

    here is my journal:

    Always progress but never compromise your ROM while doing such.

    Can't you get anymore than 10? Try eating more?

    i think i can crank out more than 10, but i was wondering if i should do 10+ for all sets, or what. so youre saying i should keep the higher reps, and gradually build up the weight with the same amount of reps, correct?

    I am saying always try to progress. I would keep within a rep range.

    Let's say your rep range 8-12.

    You do a weight you can do 8 times in perfect form. Goal is trying to get 12 reps. Once you hit 12, you increase the weight so you can only do 8 reps...and so on. So if 5lbs knocks 4 reps off, you hit the right spot. If you don't progress in weight or reps for 2 weeks then you need to look at your routine and diet to see what's up.
