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?

    How to safely perform speed bench ?

    Okay do you pause at the bottom ? Do you stop short of ROM (at the top?) What I mean is ending up hyper extending the elbows at the top fo the movement.

    Another thing is letting the weight drop down on your chest (but in a controlled manner) but then quickly pushing the weight back up. Wouldn't that put some kind of negative pressure on your elbow joints (not sure about shoulders) ?

    Shouldn't there still be a pause at the bottom of the movement ?

    Also, if my upper back (and my head) is coming off the bench does that mean I'm using a too light weight ?

    Same question about the dynamic squats, except differently...
