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?

    Bent Over Rows

    So I just recently started doing these and have some questions. I know the vague idea of the movement and so I decided to do it with DBs. I bent over and let them hang almost a foot off the floor and pulled toward my abbs. I felt pretty good (not great) about this, but then when I got home and looked it up, that's not a back excercise. Single handed DBs rows are where you place a hand and foot on a bench and make your back parallel to the ground, then pull with one hand at a time. Now, is my way okay of doing it? It felt a little weird when I did it. Also, I've seen many different variations on the internet, but do you guys (when using a BB) let it touch the ground inbetween reps?

    Yeah, on EXER he drops the weights all the way too the ground, but on some other sites the person doesn't.

    The majority of the ppl I see performing BB rows don't drop the weight to the floor.
    That's a picture of Scarlett Johansson.
