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?

    Bench Cycling

    Sorry for addressing this twice but for everyone that didn't see my previous "biceps" thread....I wanted to know if anyone cycled their bench presses. What i mean is im trying to find a cycle where I start with my max bench and then split it up into a 7 week program. Example: Week 1: 6 sets @ 10 reps , low weight to high weight. Week 2: 6 sets @ 10 reps @ 8 reps @ 6 reps....etcl, low weight to higher weight. The only problem is i used a cycle sheet that told me what weight i should do and what reps i was doing for each week. Now i'm trying to figure it out on my own and can't seem to re-create it. Anyone know where i can find this so called "cycle sheet".

    Remember, to get big, you have to get strong. The two are interconnected. Lift heavy, work hard, and size will come. Like night follows day. It works. Arnold

    Go to powerlifting heads-up and you can plug your max in
    I would think you could do all right though just working from 75-85 % of max for 4 wks. take a easy wk and try a new max.
