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?

    Gaining/Losing question

    Is it true that once you've "been there", it's easier to "get back"? And if its true, how come?

    I've always just assumed it to be right, but never really had a reason behind it.

    Also, what are the "Seated Dumbbell Presses" in WBB1? I feel silly for not knowing but for some reason I keep thinking they're like dumbbell military presses?

    Edit: After reviewing stickies, I come to the realization that my thread title fails. I apologize.

    Thanks pbf... but I dont understand why there's both that and Military Presses. Aren't they virtually the same thing?

    the standing military press is harder to do and requires more muscles in activity..in the end the both work the delts..and some people have problems with there back doing the standing military press

    yes that's true.
    for example, in most cases, a person that once benched 225 took a month off and can now only bench 190. will get back to benching 225 much quicker than a person that has been consistantly lifting and their one rep max is 190 hoping to reach 225
