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?

    Ann was sixteen when I married her. I was nineteen. I'm not embarrassed to tell the story. You see, both Ann and I were taught you must be married before sex. We had been dating since she was thirteen or fourteen. You know how intimate you get. Well, we were so in love with each other, we couldn't control it. We needed to go get married.

    GH: Please reply to my pm I sent you..

    I need an answer today..

    Anyway to the q at hand, I think you are 120 lb's right?

    In that case just concentrate on shoulder presses.

    Using the compound exercises will put on the size you are after. Focus on adding weight to the bar each week on shoulder press.. Be it dumbell press (which I prefer) or barbell shoulder press just progress each week..

    If you are a strong shoulder presser, guess what? You'll have big shoulders..

    The other thing you want is the v-taper, narrower waist, wide lats, and a good chest will all make you look bigger. Seriously, find a good routine that has some good basic movements.

    I'd say these 4 exercises would be key to include in any routine:

    Overhead Dumbbell Military
    Pull-ups
    Bent-over Rows
    Dumbbell Bench Press.


    (And of course, other lifts for legs, etc.)

    I'm thinking about adding a few sets of laterals or front raises to my routine too...my shoulders are my weakest body part and do not tend to grow very easily. I have nice definition, but not much size...

    I could give all to Time except - except
    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    ANYWAY..... If you're just starting out, take note of what I said about a big part of the wide upper body being in the lats. Laterals ain't bad, but to start out it's better to focus on getting some good form and weight on the big mass-builders.

    All ya need is Clean and press, it'll increase the size of your entire back and shoulders and their strength enourmousley. But I doubt your gonna do that. DB shoulder presses are the best besides clean and press.

    If shoulder SIZE is the issue then I think that overhead presses (alt dumbell or barbell) are the most effective.

    That being said, I think that presses hit the front delts more than the side ones.

    Thus, for WIDTH and definition, side laterals would probably be the one.

    Most of shoulder width is bone size, which is genetic mostly. Doesn't mean you can't make them bigger with weights.
