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?

    dips. not bench dips... regular dips. if its too easy, do it weighted. and skull crushers are the 2 exercises i do directly for tris, along with closegrip bench.

    If you have a machine that assists with a reverse weighted platform, that's fine. work up to your bodyweight and then surpass it. I suggest trying some dumbells for a while. Also, get someone to watch you and see if they can see anything you're doing wrong. You may need to stretch more after your workouts and loosen up the weaker side (or stronger side). It sounds like you may not be getting a full range of motion.

    I too think you should try using dumbbells for a while and see how that goes. Not only will it help you to work the muscles independantly, but the new range of motion will be really good for your overall gains
