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?

    Dips on chest & tri's day.....

    Usually do dips at the end of chest work; any pros/cons on doing tricep dips after chest dips or go on to some other tricep work first?

    Thanks.

    Depends, do you work your tris right after chest? If you don't, then what's the point?
    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

    if you work your tris the same day as chest, its best to do compound movements first in your routine, i.e. close grip bench presses and skull crushers. I would put tri dips towards the end of the tri routine.

    I do chest then shoulders and then tris. Gives my triceps a little time to get some energy back in them.

    Guess I'll save the chest dips for the end of the chest & tricep dips for the end of triceps. Sometimes will throw in bench dips for triceps; they're not too bad.

    Thx guys

    I thought cgbp and skulls were more tricep-emphasizing than compound movements. Compound moves are more like regular/incline/decline bp, chest dips, pushups, etc.
    Iron, are you talking about chest dips where you're bending forward, or tri dips where you put your legs up on some surface?
    In any case, you'll want to do your entire chest routine (starting with the compound movements) before you go into your triceps. And remember after a chest workout with compounds, your triceps are already warmed up, so you can go right into heavy lifts.
    *Edit: Just saw in your last post that you do chest and tri dips. I would do something more isolating for your chest like flyes at the end of your chest workout, just to hit them more directly and really finish them off.

    Thx Titanium I've kept the two types of dips (chest-triceps) apart pretty good within the whole workout. With a balky right shoulder, flyes are the most difficult; I've gotten better results with cable pec flyes. You're right, there are plenty of ways to 'smoke 'em' at the end;dumbbell flyes...preferred, if possible or upper/lower cable flyes with any of the benches-incline/flat/decline, and of course, grinding out feet elevated pushups.

    Admiral, supersetting inclines & dips are great; but don't have a way of having the bench & dips bar side by side
