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?

    search for chest, arms and upperbody. That should do it. Oh, and bulking.
    Burritos are the bomb for bulking!

    Bench, squat, deadlift, chinups, eat, eat, eat, eat. If you don't gain a lot weight all over, your arms probably won't get very big.

    You wouldn't want an unproptional body, if you decide not to work your legs then later on decide to do them ...... your gonna have a huge task at hand.

    I see plenty of guys with big arms and scrawny legs. The spend hours in the gym every week, doing their curl jockey thing. The waste a ton of time in the gym.

    It's simply a matter of efficiency that you should do compound exercises. Compound pressing and pulling are probably the two best exercises for arms anyway.

    Finally, anyone interested in just building up their arms needs to work something else: their brains and guts. And for these, squat away.

    When I started lifting I was all about upper body. Now that I've been doing squats, I wish I started doing them a lot earlier... :-/

    Best advice: Do whatever you want, then come back when you're ready to work your lower body.

    Stats: Age: 34 Weight: 205 Height: 5'6"
    Gym PRs: Squat:635 Bench:560 Deadlift:495
    Meet PRs: Squat:575 Bench:520 Deadlift:510 Total: 1605@220

    Yep, just doing that would make your whole body bigger, arms included.
