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?

    Is this true?

    Yup. Double checked and got this off a site devoted to Sigmarsson:
    Sadly, Jon Pall died of a massive heart attack while deadlifting in his gym on January 16th, 1993. He will always be remembered for being a wonderful showman, sportsman, and even a hero. His Icelandic Viking legacy is being carried on, however, by fellow countryman Magnus ver Magnusson.
    Of course, his best WSM deadlift was around 1100lbs and he probably had a congenital heart defect. Ergo, I don't think this is a valid reason not to deadlift.

    Look, to become a real man you do NOT have to deadlift.

    However, many people here (and I won't name names) obviously need all the help they can get. I suggest that these people (Dare I call them men?) load up that bar and pick it up numerous times, lest they go around uttering phrases like "People who do deadlifts die."

    Hold on. I was just thinking about this. I just do rack-deadlifts aka partial deadlifts? Does that make me half a man?

    Did you not read my post? Deadlifts will help you achieve manhood. (unless you're a woman, in which case, if you deadlift, you simply kick ass and I want to marry you. Now. Thanks!)

    In the event that your manhood is somewhat lacking, for example, say you sprain your fallopian tubes while using the hip adductor machine, you therefore can redeem yourself by doing full deads.

    I think someone played a joke with Mr. Belial's physiology books. Seems like ya got a might mixed up there. I don't have fallopian tubes(At least I don't think so.)

    Though, I do frequently use the hip adductor, and abductor machines. Who needs squats or leg presses when you've got those babies?

    REALLY?

    You noticed the joke there, then. Good job.

    I dont care if im a man. All I care about is hypertrophy. So far it seems that everyone agree's that bentover rows are better for hypertrophy.

    Which routine would be better for hypertrophy?

    A....bentover rows, dumbell rows, chins, incline DB curls, preacher curls.
    or

    B.....deadlifts, bentover rows, chins, incline DB curls, preacher curls

    Wouldnt the one which stimulates the upper back more be better. I read on thse boards that rows (Db and BB) work different parts of the back due to a different range of motion.

    So wouldnt it be better in this case not to do deads?

    It's not like my penis is going to be sucked into my body to form a vagina.

    Hmmm...I wouldn't be so sure.
