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?

    You need to train your lats more than just a couple of sets of rows. You do not need to do cleans.

    I'd suggest spending more time on doing coupound lifts, and less on single joint stuff.

    I'd drop the leg extensions and curls, and put in lunges, front squats, pullthrus, rack pulls, stuff like that. The pressing stuff looks OK, I'd do the overhead pressing before I train my triceps directly, though.
    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
    "You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial
    I has a blog.
    I has a facebook.

    Whats the plan after you work up too your single? Will you just try to bump the wt up each week? The workouts on your big three look fairly easy, thats why I asked. I could be wrong though. lol
    Diet and goal?
    Remember, to get big, you have to get strong. The two are interconnected. Lift heavy, work hard, and size will come. Like night follows day. It works. Arnold
