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?

    What muscles on the very top of the torso can I work?

    I've been trying to hit my traps and delts really hard lately since I never used to work them much, and they need to catch up with my relatively large tri's and bi's. The thing I was noticing the other day while at the gym though, is that I look scrawny if I don't wear a shirt with a small neck. The shirts I usually work out in are kinda small because I use them as undershirts.

    Other than traps and delts, what muscles can I work up there to make me look bigger?
    Some mornings it just isn't worth chewing through the restraints.

    Not really much else up there besides the neck. You can do some neck exercises but traps and delts are the big 2 up top. Maybe some rear delt work and especially the lats help to add to that big V-shape look.

    Your legs.



    Just get bigger, dude.
    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
