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?

    Injury question and exercise question

    I took a break from working out for a month and am now trying to get back on track (holidays will always do it)

    Anyway I am trying to get back on track with Routine 1. Can someone tell me what hits the arms harder overall the hammer curls or seated incline curls?

    Secondly I enjoy doing close grip presses for tri's but wonder would I find it more beneficial doing French Press'?

    Last of all I have tendonitius in my elbow so I can't do Front Press so it Arnold Press ok as subsitute?

    Thanks

    I like to mix it up between hammer curls, barbell curls, and incline curls. I like French press and haven't really touched a cable machine in a long time. I like Arnold press and just started doing military presses (not sure if these would bother your elbow).

    all push/pull will hit your arms,i like both hammer curls and incline curls.

    Try the Arnold press and see how it feels

    Doesn't WBB1 have BOTH the french press and close grip bench ? I use the routine so I'm pretty sure it does. As for effectivness I switched from a intense routine to WBB1 and have had more improvment. I find as long as I'm really testing myself that the exercise doesn't matter too much to me. In my opinion it comes down to the preffered motion you would rather do. My biceps have imporoved, and as long as the weight is heavy enough and has a high intensity for me it gets the job done. You can always modify the routine, just check with the people here first. They know their shiot .

    Doesn't matter. Whichever you like more.

    If you have tendonitus in your elbows, french press will likely hurt like a biatch.

    Yes, it's a fair substitute.

    Wow, I can actually understand a post by Crippy.

    His advice is legit.
