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?

    Static Lift

    I am fairly new to working out and was told to add a static lift to my routine. Can anyone tell me, do you use it, what area it works, proper technique?

    I thought the definition of static meant a lift without movement? The only one i see people do is barbell holds to strengthen your grip.

    unless your grip is bothering you for pulling, rows shrugs ect i dont think you need to worry too much. I wouldnt consider this a must have for a basic routine

    Would holding on to a pullup bar work to strengthen your grip also?

    Don't worry about the static holds unless your grip is really holding the rest of you back. If you just want to beef up faster increase the width of whatever bars you use. The easiest way to do that is to wrap something squeezable like wash cloths around the bars.
