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?

    Not following through the ROM

    Long story short - Several trainers at my gym follow the advice of one larger trainer. Now when they lift, they don't do a full ROM. For example, when doing bent-over-rows they'll get about 6 to 8 inches high, stop and go down. They do this with every exercise. Is there something I'm missing here? Is there a reason for doing this?

    They get to use more weight and look stronger.

    I think partial reps have a place in an advanced lifter's routine, but they should not be in a beginner/intermediate lifter's routine. Also, if your gym is anything like the general public's gym, these guys are probably tools and are beginner lifters themselves

    I know genetics come into play a lot of the time, but it just seems odd that these trainers can be very large by doing mostly partial reps. I have no idea what their diet is like, but if it's anything like the advice they give most people, I don't know how they can stay as big as they are.
