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?

    Shrugs and hamstring anything. Tricep exercises piss me off a little too.
    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

    that reminds me. i hate lateral raises too. its so hard to go up in weight. plus they also hurt my shoulders a bit. i got some tendonitis there too.

    i also hate rear lateral raises and workouts for the rear delts or front delts. a lot of pressure on the elbows especially with front delt raises.

    Upright rows because they put so much pressure on my elbow. I don't do those. I love skull crushers but I cant do those either because of my elbow.

    Other than that, I hate working my back, but suck it up and do it anyways. And I absolutely despise lunges. I'll stick with single leg squats.

    Sit ups / crunches or any ab excercise. So boring, with painful burning. Any time I'm using a DB, BB or maching I'm having fun.

    They are pretty boring. Actually, I can't really stand doing too many isolation exersizes.

    Leg curls. Also, deadlifts only because they are the most painful. I do like the results from them, though.

    oh yeah somebody said upright rows. if that's what i'm thinking of i kinda like them but sometimes when i pull up my right wrist pops out. it's weird. that happens sometimes when i'm bowling. i bring the ball back and my right wrist like pops out of place and back in and its so painful. but it only hurts for like a min. afterwards.

    My least favorite lift is the last one in a workout because I know it's gonna be a while before I get to workout again.

    Last week I hurt my collarbone doing dips, so I'll say dips. I can do 3x8 with bodyweight or bw+5, but I never feel really solid doing them.


    I like being done with deadlifts, but I don't like doing them. I've started scratching up my thighs near my knees with the bar on the way down.

    Favorite: Closed chain exercises.
    Least favorite: open chain exercises.

    I hate Squat.. Yeah i said it. I was pushing 225 like 2 months ago and lost my form at the last rep. There was this immense pain at my lower back that i had to take a whole week off.

    So now i'm afriad to do heavy deadlift (it could be a mental thing.) Now i just do front squat and really heavy leg press.

    my logic is, if i dont like it because it is "to hard" then maybe it is me that needs to change NOT the exercise. Meaning if you hate squats cause they hurt or you cant do enough weight, why drop the exercise? why not spend a couple months working with them and THEN make your decision to continue?

    I dislike calf work, for 2 reasons, they truly do hurt more then all other exercises and i have never gotten good progress from them.
