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?

    Development of upper pecs...

    I have good sized pecs at this point, but they are to big on the bottom and almost non existant on the top.

    I did pushups 80-150 a night from the ages of about 13- 18 and they really developed my lower pecs.

    By 20 I decided to stop doing bench press altogether to try to avoid building my lower pec anymore and now I've been concnetrating on incline press.

    Problem is I haven't had much growth there...

    What exercises do you recommend?

    I've been doing incline bench and am ok strength wise at it, but haven't gotten much in the way of growth/development from it......any other suggestions?

    Most people here beleive that incline becnhes won't work the upper part of the chest, anymore then the rest. The chest is going to grow as genetics plans. Its not gonna hurt to do inclines though.

    try db incline instead.

    Like Berserker said, genetics will decide whether or not you will have a big "upper" chest.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."
