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?

    Yates row

    Anybody here ever do the Yates row? I've never seen it done. I understand it's basically a bent-over row done with a supinated grip. The only pictures I could find of it being done are at this site:

    I've seen those before. A guy at the gym suggested them for my girlfriend to work her biceps.

    I have tried this before. I found it difficult to do. I couldn't get the form correct. Whether this had anything to do with the fact that I couldn't really feel it working, I am not sure... but that could be likely. Is it meant for your back? Like MA said, I was told by a guy at our gym to do this for my biceps.

    I've tried them cause i didn't like conventional BB rows at all.


    After trying the yates row...i don;t particularly like them either. DB rows are my forté.

    That's because they are a lot easier to grip, eh?

    I dunno, it's weird because I am stronger at chins with a wide overhand grip than a clser underhand grip. I guess I'm a freak or something.
