The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Getting them sore doesn't have anything to do with getting them big.

    You don't have to do anything 'crazy' for this workout to be successful.

    Growth comes from a string of good workouts, where you progress regularly, coupled with the usual good nutrition, rest, etc.

    No need for all that.

    Plus, since SORENESS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PROGRESS, it doesn't matter if you make him sore.

    It's like I'm not even here!

    Try shrugs in the standing calve raise, that will get your traps sore


    Also i do 3 sets of 40+ with 40lb plates, it probably doesnt do sheet but it makes your traps feel awesome day after.. They are my favourite part to excercise

    he would most likely say that SORENESS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PROGRESS, or something along those lines

    By the way, i totally agree with him

    Has anyone heard from Paul lately? It seems like he has disappeared from the internet. I can't find him anywhere.

    just do 1 or 2 assisted reps at the end of your sets. that'll do the trick i guarantee.

    3 sets front presses
    3 sets lateral raises
    3 sets shrugs

    Back day will take care of the rear delts, so no need to do them here. Rediculous intensity on every set, and this is more than enough for a great workout.

    If you train with a partner, try this:

    Military Press:

    warmup sets

    Negative-only set for 8 reps (use ~25% more than you would for full reps)---continue the set until you can no longer control the downward movement. Your partner will have to do the majority of the lifting and you must slowly lower the weight to a count of 6-8 seconds.

    immediately go to side laterals---10 strict reps ****there can be no rest, you have to go immediately to these after the presses

    immediately go to upright rows---10 reps ****same deal on the rest


    Perform this compound set only once. If you do it right your will have the greatest shoulder pump ever, you will be sore as heck the next day (more so 2 days later), and you will have stimulated some nice size and strength gains.
