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?

    good workouts for lats and traps

    At the moment all i am doing is lat pulldowns with V bar, seated rows which i guess hits them a bit, and for traps i do shrugs.
    Is there any isolation movement for lats? my bis always tire out way before my lats so i dont get a good workout out of it. I have packed on quiet a good bit of mass on them since i started deadlifting but still i feel they need improvement.
    Also at the gym i see people with crazy traps even though the rest of there body is not particularly amazing..what excersises should i look at doing?

    Chins and pullups, bent over bb rows, t-bar rows are a few things that come to mind that would help you increase your lat size.
    me: so this is the "pump" you speak of
    me: I could never figure out what people were talking about

    When doing pullups concentrate on bringing your elbows down to your sides.

    When doing rows concentrate on sqeezing your shoulder blades together.

    Often when someone's biceps give out early on back exercises it's because of poor form. Don't worry about how much weight you're moving, rather, worry about making sure your back is doing the work.

    I'm not a big believer in the back width vs back thickness exercises. Pick whatever feels comfortable on your joints. Deads and bb rows should be hitting your traps pretty hard, too. Maybe you are overtraining your traps a bit?
