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?

    Skull crushers done on incline?

    Ive been doing skull crushers on an incline... Is it more effective if I do it flat?

    Shouldn't make a difference as long as you have a full ROM.

    Incline, decline, and flat are all slightly different, but all just as good. If you get bored, just switch it every 3-6 weeks or something.

    That's good to know. I like decline because I can just reach back and grab the bar from behind me when I start the set.

    Decline seems to be favored as a better feel by many.

    I do my two hand/one dumbell extensions on a 60 degree incline or so, I was playing around with angles until my elbows felt more comfortable and that's what worked the best for me and kept things pain free, and that's the only reason I do them on that incline.
