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?

    Close grip bench...

    Everyone tells me close grip bench is best for mass in the triceps. I just have a few questions about the exercise. Should I do it first in my tricep workout? And where do you guys grip it? Right now im gripping it thumbs touching each other. My wrist usually kill me when i do these...If i go wider im using less triceps right? I really feel it in my triceps but i see people griping it wider and going heavier. What is better closer and lighter or a little wider and heavier?

    The best way to do any exercise is the way that causes you no pain. By pain I mean if it hurts you to do a certain exercise a certain way. Going a little wider should not negatively impact on the triceps, especially if it allows you to use more weight.
