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?

    Form on DB press....

    Is it possible to get too wide on a DB press? I often feel like I'm working my arms more than my pecs on a DB press, and today I kept the DB's narrower/closer together throughout the whole motion and it felt like i was working my pecs more. I felt like I was pressing more up/down and less out and up, if that makes sense.

    Just try and keep your forearms perpendicular to the floor, don't let your arms bow out

    For some reason I find if I turn my palms towards each other and bring them together at the top of the movement I feel it in my pecs A LOT more, and my form stays better, give it a try.
