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?

    How do you feel your progressing with low reps pup ?? Ever think about upping them and dropping the weight a little. I've started to put more size on my legs since I've upped the reps from 8 to 12

    Rob, if you're doing cardio regularly i think you'll find that routine quite beneficial - it has definately worked for me, but i use a mix of high and low reps for legs:

    squats - low reps: 4-6 range
    leg press - high reps: 8-12 range
    hacks - high reps: 10-12 range
    extensions - what-ever-the-fuk-i-can-squeeze-out-after-the-others-range.
    curls - by-this-point-i'm-past-caring-range.

    Good stuff man

    IMHO ... higher reps work better when squatting. 10 - 15 reps.

    bolloxs. Hacks are for people who are scared of squatting.

    No problems my brother .... I too do both. Anyways, I think you'll notice improvement with upping your reps. Sure you won't be able to lift as much weight, but you'll soon be moving the same amount, but for more reps. Keep at it bro.
