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?

    150 reps! Thats way too much, you'd just be better doing 8-10 weighted push ups. And your only gonna get ripped with them if u are on a cut. And the same rules apply as any other excersise/bodypart so doing them everyday is a bad idea because they work tris or chest, depending on your grip (wide/close)

    its alrite to do em on other days, hey its muscular endurance- why not
    overtraining is the only concern
    other then the fact that theyre not gonna build muscle for you, theyre fine- im considering doin them every day other then the 2 days i do chest/tris

    What you are doing isn't going to 'cut you up' and isn't going to make your chest bigger.

    It will make you much better at doing lots of pushups.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    JTyrell and the others are right.

    When I was in the corps, we did pushups damn near everyday. I could drop down and do well over 200 non-stop. My chest didnt get bigger because of it though.

    The only way to cut is through diet and cardio.
