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?

    Lower Abs

    Finding it very difficult to see the definition in the lower abs. Can't seem to get that 8 pack look...Anyone know of any lower ab exercises that they find really work. Been doing jack-knife situps and incline leg-hip raises and can't seem to get that tone. is it body fat on the lower abs that's in my way? More cardio??? Hydroxycut??? Any opinions would be appreciated.

    agreed although the bigger they are and the more seperation you get between the muscles the better they will show through any fat that is there. I like hanging knee raises and bicycle crunches for my lower abs.

    It means diet determines the visibility of your abs.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Also the abs contract together, not as a lower and upper unit. Work on dieting, that will be the key.
    Diet is key, the calorie is king

    "Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
    Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination
    alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
