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?

    Question for the people who HAD a lagging chest

    IMO it's especially interesting to hear from you guys, what you've done to change this, because maybe it will help me to. I've been strugling with my chest for 16 months now, but it still doesn't respond very well...

    I'm gonna be a HUGE mofo!

    ive found focusing on incline dumbell press...and lifting hard in this exercise has given me more results then prioritising with bench press.

    Chest exploded pretty quickly when I started lifting hard incline.

    Oh yeah, and Dips too
    Oh its True, its Damn Freakin' True.

    I had a lagging chest. In fact I was famous among my close friends for it, and how comical it was. I fixed it and am now improving it. How? Simple... I just did dumbbell presses, plain and simple, until now I am pushing 75s on incline and 80s on flat bench.

    If your chest is "lagging" because it is small and weak then do what I did... just keep pressing and eventually it'll HAVE to grow. I used to listen to all the stuff about "some people just push more with their shoulders" etc. etc. and other clap-trap. Just PUSH until you are pushing good weight... the muscle will come along for the ride.

    If you are already big and strong with a lagging chest this advice doesn't apply. I got nothing to help ya with that.
