The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Dilemna - right shoulder stronger

    I mainly see it in incline press and seated press (both with dumbells).

    My dilemna is, when training for strenght, is there any disadvantage to train both arm to their maximum ?

    While maxing on incline press today I was frustrated that the weight felt so heavy on my left arm while it felt light on my right arm... So I decided to finish the movement with my right arm and it felt easy...

    well, if you keep continuing the set like that of course one muscle is going to be stronger. You need to do an extra set or so with lighter weight on the weak shoulder, and after time it should even out. This is a common problem for many people, just has to do with the genetics of muscles and how some have it in them to grow faster than others.
    Can't stop this train from rolling
    You can't take it down
    No, never stop this locomotion, on and on and on
    No, you can't bring me down 'cause I'm

    Better than you
