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?

    try varying you rep scheme, your body adjust to routines after a while.

    if your in the 1-5 rep range try a slightly higher rep range for a while like 6-10 this should help u get out of the rut, or just change your exercises, variety is the key, always keep your muscles guessing and they will keep responding

    maybe try doing three sets for two exercises a muscle, and cutting out some of the extra ones. like do 3 sets of bb bench and 3 sets of incline db or something.

    try upping the weight so that by the 3rd set, you can only do like 5 reps on your own, and force the last three w/spotter.

    i did that on decline bench yesterday, and it felt really good.

    are you sore after your workouts?

    good luck!
