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?

    barbell vs dumbell strength

    I use barbells for almost all my excercises, yesterday at the gym i decided to do some alternating curls because ive been using the e-z bar for months now. i use 100 for curls so i figured i could maybe use 50's ..but i coudnt . I tried the 45 's with the same result, so i grabed the 40's and could barely get out 5 reps..it was kinda disconcerting. is it normal to a have a strength deficet between dumbell and barbell weight?

    You have to use a lot more back swing to cheat with dumbells than you do to cheat with the barbell.

    Maybe you weren't swinging your back enough.

    I think that dumbells are much more concentrated weight. You don't have the long bar to balance and diminish the weight. I use a mixture of both and some pully stuff. I can use more weight on the bar and pulleys than the dumbells.
