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?

    uneven trapezius

    hello,

    just wanted to ask a question cos it looks a bit odd.

    when I tense my left trapezius seems to be bigger is this just a normal thing and continuing to build up it will even out or should I try and counter the effects.

    if so any recomendations to even it up quicly?

    Keep lifting heavy. It should eventually even out, and you're probably the only one to notice. Dont try to counter the effects by lifting lighter on one side and heavier on the lagging side.... then you'll end up with two weak traps instead of one strong and one slightly less strong.

    just keep shrugging, cleaning, snatching, or whatever you do

    You can always lower the weight just a bit and focus your mental energy on the lagging side. In time you'll catch up and even out.
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial
