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?

    After working back (which works the biceps anyway) I do one set of hammer curls.
    After working chest (which works the triceps anyway) I do one set of either dips or cable extensions.

    This is pretty much what I do. On back days I finish with one set of BB or DB curls. On chest days I finish with one set of dips or cable extensions. I've had more noticeable growth on my triceps, than on any other body part (this was one of my weakest areas when I started working out).

    I do Dips which targets the tris but no Isolations on Bicep or Triceps. I bulked 12lbs and gained 1/2" on my arms without no direct arm work.

    No direct work for Tris or Bis. I only do DB Bench, Dips, Chins and Seated Pulley Rows and my arms are quite large doing 350lb(BW+125) Dips.

    I'll do 2-4 sets of various curls at the end of my back day, once a week. Other than that, it's all compound work for my arms.

    2 sets of BB curls and 2 sets of DB curls, done after my back workout.

    I do close grip bench and dips for tris, but those really arent isolating the tris as much as the curls isolate the bis.

    One a week... day 3 of WBB1

    The dips and bench on day 1 hit the triceps a little I guess and the rows hit the biceps a little but it's not "direct arm work".
