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?

    I cannot imagine doing biceps curls with 65# DBs. Ever. I'm proud I just moved up to 20's. . .and I do NOT do them AFTER barbell curls, just seated DBs. . .with 20's. . .*sniff*.

    Nice work!

    To be the next Nasser I would need to buy a pharmacy and gain about 60 lbs of lean muscle, but I thank you for the compliment!

    Damn chris, incredible arm size and strength.

    You should put up a picture of your 200 lbs.+ barbell curls and skulls again - I know that you put some up before.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    That was really something, I can barely hold 60lbs DBs to do my shrugs and you use them to do curls, lol. Great work!

    So you don't wanna get big, do you?

    awsome arms Big Bi's are a beautiful thing...i had to stop using the 60+db's since my tendons were feeling it too much, i work in the 40-50 now, but try and work the negatives and it seems to help as i can control the form more postively. I was also introduced to a great polishing move on the cables...using the high grips and doing a bicep curl w/ a very rom(start at 90degrees and basically curl and flex to a 45 degree)..i started w/ 60 for 9 reps on the last rep hold the pump for a 30 count. I then did to sets progressive, working up to 90 on each side and a pump hold for 10 count..its been awhile since my arms were this sore the next day!!
    Great work again and mebbe you can share some routines???

    Thanks, check my journal for what I do. You can also reference the articles I have written for the site and some of my old threads.

    As to the weight, I am using strict form on the curls and they are my 2nd exercise.

    That's a pretty weak tan you have there. Why don't you take a day out of your schedule and get out in the sun.
