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 want bigger lats.

    Actually, I'd like everything to be bigger.


    Comments please guys and gals, should I cut? Should I bulk more?

    Definately gain at this point in your training life.

    What is your current routine and diet like?

    Don't bother with the supps. They won't do anything but lighten your wallet.

    You've got a wicked base. BULK BULK BULK!

    For a big back you need to use a routine full of compound exercises, one of my favorite routines:

    deadlift
    bb shrugs
    bb rows
    chins
    seated cable rows

    Yes BB rows are also a favorite of mine, and also the w/o I contribute to my width which has gotten Pretty good IMO..

    heavy BB rows and some sort of chin/lat pull and deadlift and you should start to see your back blow up in thickness and width..

    What are my options for chinning if I have no real place to do it (Home gym), I can do lat pulls etc and the like - Something like a door frame support bar, or a combination chin/dip station?

    Heh. That looks almost identical to my back day routine, minus the cable rows. Even in that same order!

    BTW, it's worked quite well for me.

    I'm with mase...you need a verticle (pulldowns) and a horizontal (rowing) lift.

    If you can do lat pull downs, you don't need chins IMO (I don't do chins). You'll have to find what rowing movement works best for you. My preference is cable rows or DB rows.

    Deads and shurgs are great lifts but more for traps.

    One reason pullups are awesome is that they don't require any equipment. Find a tree or playground.

    Anyway, a chinup bar is only $15, and probably the single best bodybuilding tool per dollar. Easy to add weight too (backpack).
