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?

    completely abandon overhand rows?

    i havent had a single workout while doing overhand rows where i felt like i hit the muscles i shouldve. i was thinking about ditching them and just doing underhand rows.
    is the only difference between the two that underhand involves the bicep more? i dont want to abandon overhand rows (or any exercise for that matter) if they work certain muscle groups underhand rows dont. and i also dont like to quit an exercise just because its hard, but if the two types of rows are almost equivalent, ill probably do that. any help on this subject?

    It doesn't matter enough to worry about. Do them how you like them.

    Build up to heavy weights.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
