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?

    proper weighted sit ups..

    ok so i know you need to hold the plate on your chest...but i have a short torso and am using a 45lbs plate for this exercise and since my torso is short the plate is basically the length of my torso so i cant to proper sit ups.

    my solution was to place to plate on my forearms kinda like a backwards grip so the plate is off my chest and do them that way. i feel the "burn" but is this okay or are there other ways?

    There are a few other ways:

    a) use a dumbell

    b) plae the weight behind yourb head and prepare for a kick in the ass - it is a LOT harder.

    Another thing you can do is hold a plate or barbell at arms length and raise it up toward the ceiling (you can have your training partner hold his hand as a target) by crunching.
