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?

    a good combination would be

    incline bench press , flat bench press , dips and flyes

    some ppl would even reccomend to either do bench press alone or incline alone however I do both in the same workout going to failure every set, are you a beginner?


    :o

    Exercise descriptions:

    http://www.planetkc.com/exrx/lists/directory.html

    Pick a press, pick a flye.

    Do 3 sets of presses, do 3 sets of flyes.

    For the first 2 sets of presses do 5-7 reps, for the last set do 10-12.

    On the flyes do the same thing.

    Now go eat.

    Hot shot I don't agree with you on 2 points, the first is that a beginner probably would find doing dips to be very demanding, let alone weighted dips, so dips not weighted is enough, second i don't think that doing 2 sets only would be beneficial for a beginner, however it would be good for a person who has been training a bit.....

    You can progress fine without the flyes. The benching and ESPECIALLY the dips would hammer your chest fairly well. Just use good form on the bench, think about your boobs contracting instead of just throwing the weight up there.

    Yes, presses will hammer the chest "fairly well", but not maximally...that requires isolation due to the weak links in the press.

    what? I never said presses won't make your chest grow, but they will not make your chest grow maximally.

    As Cack said, any type of pressing movement and a so called "isolation" movement.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
