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?

    i have always done BB before DB - it just seems to work better this way but I dont know the explanation of why.

    I have always found that a single limb movement allows for greater concentration and contraction...perhaps this has something to do with it.

    Biceps are the only thing that doesn;t have set exercises each week, purely because i couldn;t give a rats ass, so for that reason i kinda agree with gopro.

    Doesn't really matter what you do for Biceps. It's a weird muscle. It responds do so many of the exercises in similar ways. I just do whatever.
    It's like I'm a juicer... but I'm not.

    I do any exercise that keeps the tension high on the bicep all the way through the exercise. ie no preacher curls.
    i go for chris mason when he says about using a straight bar over E-Z bar as it keeps the tension on the bicep better at the bottom of the movement due to the wrist grip.

    Hunter S. Thompson is a famous writer. I wrote my senior project in college about him. There have been several movies about him, 1 with Bill Murray playing him and the other with Johny Depp as him. Those are 2 pretty big stars here in the United States.
