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?

    Tricep Extensions

    When doing tricep extensions(standing),how come only the lower end of the tricep(near elbow) feels like its being worked,and no where else?

    Unless I've slipped a brain cell, its because that's where it attaches to the lower part of your arm (radius/ulna)...

    when you lift your arm up and try to extend your elbow joint, the part of your tricep that attaches into your shoulder isn't moving... it's just stabilizing. The act of extending and straightening your arm requires your triceps to pull on its attachment point on the lower arm through the elbow joint as it contracts. If you haven't done this much before, the tendons at this attachment may be a bit irritated at being asked to work so hard.
