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?

    Arnold DB press?

    Anyone used these and had good results? Basically a dumbell press where u start with your palms facing inward and rotate throughout?

    The only difference is that Arnold presses make you more likely to get injured.

    i think they are better cuz they put the forearms more into motion. i prefer to do it this way and it actually feels more natural.

    ive never heard of this but I have read of an Arnold bench routine, while I used it for about a month I gained 15 lbs on my bench, which is pretty damn good....the change just whipped my butt and after every workout I was sore for days, and I dont usually get it that much....it goes :

    Warm up Set 15 reps
    set for 10reps, then 8 reps, then 6 reps, then 4 reps, then 2 reps .... concentrating on trying to get your last rep as the one before you would hit failure, so you try to not hit failure throughout the lift...I found that very beneficial...

    after that you head do dumbells and do 2 sets of incline flys for 8 reps
    -one killer chest workout I feel, now that i mention it I think I might start it up again for the nex month or so...

    Most confusing thread ever

    I've never head of "Arnold DB BENCH press", usually when someone refers to DB press it's the shoulder press.

    I believe that this is what he's talking about.

    I find them a great exercise for the shoulders.

    I am not a fan of twisting motions, I've always thought it could lead to injury.

    If you add in some movements like twists doesn't it help stretch your muscles ?
