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?

    Quick WBB1 Q, regarding amt of weight

    Under WBB1, how do I determine how much weight to lift? I've heard 75% 1rep Max, does that sound about right?

    All you need to do is stick to the rep range. So for Flat Barbell Bench Press it says do 2 sets of 6-8 reps. So all you need to do is find the weight to you can flat bench 6-8 times (you can choose if you do 6 or 8) and that is the right weight.
    Hope this helps.

    Put it this way dude.

    If you can bench 185 X 8 for both sets, its time to up the weight.

    If you can do 225X8 then 225X5 you need to stick with it until you get within the rep range of 6-8. Every rep counts. Don't cut corners, that is the path to the dark side of bench warmers and chest bouncers..
    Squat = Not enough
    DL = Not enough
    Bench = Not enough

    Big 3 = Not enough

    its simple, if you finish a set easily then up the weight, if you dont finish all your reps then lower it. So its kind of a guess and check type thing.
