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?

    Dips are bastardly, and I messed up my elbow badly doing them.. Although i was doing very heavy added weight perhaps it is alright if you stick with your bodyweight.
    I find them to be very effective nonetheless, and they are like a "squat" for the upper body...they kill many a bird with one stone.
    Just do bench press, close grip bench press, tricep pulldowns on a cable machine. That should yield the same effects

    I think you will hit the point of diminishing returns quickly with the pushups.

    It depends on what you usually do dips for. When I do them I try to lean as far forward as possible to work my chest and not so much my tris. If you do what I do, bench dips or close grip bench won't be practical replacements. If I couldn't do dips, God forbid, I'd replace them with decline barbell bench. If you do dips specifically/mainly for tris then the aforementioned exercises should at least come the closest to suffice.

    I always did dips as a chest exercise where you lean forward, in which case replacing it with some sort of close grip bench or bench dip won't accomplish the chest stimulation. If you can't do them, you can't do them, but I'd guess the next closest thing would be decline bench.

    Great minds think alike.
