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?

    how can I improve my endurance?

    I have personally noticed that depending on what exercise I start on, I am always a lot stonger on that first exercise compared to the next one. For example, if I incline press first I can do a good 15 lbs more than say If I flat benched first. Is this normal or is my endurance horrible? How can I improve this? (I am not interested in taking creatine at the moment, dont want to baloon up 10lbs lol)

    Well creatine is not going to make you balloon. It would help to know how long you've been lifting and how frequent or consistent your workouts are.

    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    First off, I have been on creatine before and yes it did cause me to gain 10lbs of water weight. I have been lifting for about 7 months now, and I lift just every day except wednesday, sat, and sunday.

    If you want to increase your local muscular endurance here are the parameters you should follow.

    Sets: 2-3/exercise
    Reps: 12-20+
    Rest b/t Sets: 30 seconds or less
    Intensity: <67% 1RM, or in other words light-moderately light weight.
