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?

    Upright Rows, When?

    I've always done upright rows as a delt exercise. Is this correct? I was sick for a few days and couldn't lift. So now that I'm back my muscles have all gotten over a weeks rest and the DOMS have set in pretty good. I feel a lot of it over my shoulder blades which I know is from doing the rows. So I'm wondering if these are a better back exercise over a delt exercise. Thanks.

    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

    Yes, and traps. I've done them from the start and they've always worked well for me.
    I'm not moaning, i'm having an opinion.

    To hit the delts more, do UR rows with a wider grip. A narrower grip hits the traps more.
    Just one guy's opinion.

    Thanks for the input guys. I'll keep them where they're at, as a delt exercise.

    Yeah they're good for delts, but I also feel them somewhat in the traps & upper back. I'm currently doing back and shoulders on the same day so it's all good.
