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?

    Incline Tricep Press?

    A quick question... Does the incline work a different part of the tricep? So would it be efficient if i put both Tricep Press and Incline Tricep Press in the same workout?

    it won';t make a significant difference.

    it may just alter the amount the delts and pec play in there role of close grip bench pressing.

    No, it doesn't hit a different part of the tricep.

    keep it simple.
    Squats work better than supplements.

    any elbow extension move is going to hit all heads of the tricep. Some exercises just work better for certain people. Regular rope pulldowns and skull crushers have been the best for my tricep development.

    What are the others you do?

    Ahead of the answer I'll suggest close grip benches, dips and behind the back dips (sometimes called reverse push ups for some reason)

    I really like mule pulls, but you have to apply maximum control keeping the delts out of the movement once you start using heavy weight. Getting into the postion with heavy weight is a little tricky, as well.

    Skullcrushers always stress my wrists. Nothing beats dips for helping add mass.

    You can use 2 chairs and do dips.When they get too easy do them with a dumbbell in your lap.

    I use kickbacks as a finisher to get a final pump. I feel they accent a good horseshoe.

    Behind the back dips with a plate or db on your lap. Make sure your feet are as high as your hands.

    Seated french press may work. Skull crushers.

    Theres more to skullcrushers then alot of people think. If you don't do them right you can end up hurting your elbow joints and wrist joints. What you do is grip close on a easy bar. Like your wrists right next to eachother. Just push up till your elbows are extended and stop. don't keep pushing. Also try skullcrushers on a incline bench so you can't cheat. And don't force weight. If you do skullcrushers right it should feel easy at first but towards the end of the sets you should start to burn.

    Another suggestion is pushups on a small ball. A basketball type size. This works very well!

    I've had great results from dips and weighted dips. I try to keep them in every tricep workout.
