The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    warm up question.

    quick question here.

    if im doing back before biceps, do i still need to warm up my biceps before i do my bicep exercises, or should they already be pretty warmed and ready to go from my back exercises?

    here is how my back bicep workout runs

    wide grip pullups 2 sets
    close hand pullups 1 set
    rows 2 sets

    barbell curl 2 sets
    hammer curl 2 sets

    im pretty sure that they will be ready to go from doing the back, but just wanted to make sure. thanks for all replys

    Your Biceps should be plenty warmed up, and possibly even a little pre-fatigued from the chins/rows, by the time you start curling.

    Yeah. There is no need to do anymore warm-up sets because your arms will already be spent from that combo of chins and rows.

    One thing I have been doing with my clients this week is towel preacher curls. All you need is a towel, and a partner. Sit on the preacher curl machine like normal, but instead of using a weight, have your partner hold the towel, and you grip it like a normal dumbbell or barbell, and he/she gives you the resistance on the positive and negative portions of the movement. This isn't something to do everytime in the gym, but I sometimes throw it in with my clients because, #1 they get the chance to try to hurt me, and #2 they get a solid bicep workout in.

    Keep lifting heavy.

    You should add 1 or 2 more exercises for back or increase the current sets. After back.. your bis should already be tired.

    do you think i should wait a couple minutes between back and bicep exercises. that way i can get a decent bicep workout in?

    right now my current split is chest, shoulders, triceps
    back bicep legs.

    Treat the time between back and bicep exercises like rest time inbetween sets of the same exercise. It should be a fluid workout.
