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?

    Slow down...

    Look at WBB1

    It's full of all you need. Start slow, and simple.

    I thought you were lifting weights at school, where they should have a fair amount of equipment.

    So, are you saying you only have dumbbells?

    Pretty much all good excersises are with freeweights. Buy a good bench, and a weight set with bb and db's. Start with WWb#1 and go to exrx.net.

    id buy a bench, power rack, and oly set if i were you. but im guessing you probably cant fit/afford all that. if that is the case i reccomend selling your bed and any video game console you may own and then youll have some more room and money. while that comment was meant to be humourous, i would rather have a rack & bench than a bed & X-box.

    if you can, you need to get an oly set (an olympic barbell with 300 lbs of plates, adjustable to 5 lb intervals and can be as light as the 45 lb naked bar. ranges in price from 100-150 where i live, but is even cheaper in some places.) with just that and no rack/bench you can still do bb rows, deadlifts and deadlift variations, olympic lifts and their variations, some squat variations, overhead presses and some variations, and plenty of isolation exercises that involve a bar. add a bench and/or rack and you get even more quality movements, but if you gotta do w/o those you can do pretty decent with just an oly set.

    Do you have enough space for all that stuff. Remember a bar is like 7 feet long.

    If you don't have room, everything can be done with dumbbells, and if you don't have a spotter, DB's are safer because you won't get stuck under them like you could with a barbell.

    machines should only play a small roll in developing your physique, if they play a roll at all.

    i work out at home, so yes, i do.

    a bar is 7 feet long, but its not that wide or tall. likewise plates arent very deep. none of that stuff takes up that much room if its put away neatly (i usually either leave my bar racked, or lengthwise along the wall) you can stack plates next to your bench and have your bench inside your power rack. all in all, while it tends to make a room look crouded from all the stuff and its height, a power rack doesnt take up more room than a twin size bed. yes, when its in use you have to take things out, but when your working out theres probably not much else going on in the room anyway so the space wouldnt be needed for anything else.

    All barbell and dumbell exercises are freeweight exercises. Sounds like you need a dumbell only, no bench routine which can be pretty tough but not impossible if you are creative and motivated.
