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?

    Damn, everyone is so sensitive on the first page of this thread. I sense an abundance of tampons here.

    I couldn't use more than 35 lbs for dumbell kickbacks with decent form. I don't like that movement.

    I don't know, but the "tate press" looks like it could place some excessive stress on the elbow joint.

    My favorite tricep exercise: skull crushers on a decline bench. Keep your upper arms COMPLETELY stationary(perpendicular to the floor) - only your lower arm should be moving. I just started doing these a couple months ago, and they're definitely my favorite now. I like barbell extensions on the incline bench too - these put your upper arm in a position between an overhead extension and a skull crusher.

    I consider both of these movements to be very comfortable/natural movements and very effective.

    I agree, variations of the skullcrusher are the best. Tate Press runs a very close second, in my opinion.
