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?

    Deep Muscle Growth

    Just lately ive heard alot of people in the Bodybuilding Industry going on about 'deep muscle growth' e.g. Art Atwood, Bob Cherillo, Tom Prince but to name a few.

    The theory is that you perform no less than 15 reps per set and it will invoke larger and more rounded (aestetically pleasing) muscles. With this kind of new info being pumped at us what are we supposed to do, or is this a technique that only the genetically gifted and drug users can make use of?

    Anyone else heard of it? if so what are your thoughts?

    After 15 reps, I doubt there is any muscle growth. So yes, keep your reps under 15, and you will grow.

    Deep muscule growth?

    Making the muscles 'rounder'?

    Under 15 reps?

    I think it's a bunch of crap being fed to you to make you think there is some secret training technique to looking like the pro's, as opposed to basic very hard training, remarkable attention to diet, genetics, and drugs.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Your muscle shape is predetermined. You can adjust it's size though. Unless you want to get out a scalpel there's not much you can do about it.

    yeah, thats what i thought, its shocking how much crap the pro's pump out. I feel sorry for those without access to WBB, they will all be using 15+ reps and wondering why they are not growing!
