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?

    Something weird is going on.

    I can barbell curl a certain weight for more than 10 reps but I cannot barbell curl ten more pounds for even one rep (with good form, that is). Same thing with incline db press (this with only a 5 pound difference). A similar thing (but not quite as extreme) is going on with squats. What gives?

    i wouldn't worry about it.....and i would also just stick to one weight for your working sets....rather than pyramiding

    Reach down between your legs and find a pair of balls. That's what it takes to lift big weights. Genetics is the weak man's excuse for why he sucks at life. Don't be that guy - RhodeHouse

    That makes a lot of sense. Thanks. Although, I'd still like to know what's going on. This doesn't seem to happen to anyone else.

    I would get a 1lb magnets and add those to the current weight you can curl. Slowly you'll build up to 10 more pounds on the curl.

    10lbs is a big increase for small biceps.
