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?

    Nice lifts - they looked great.

    A question for you (or anyone else I suppose): I tried these for the first time on Friday with the cross-armed approach. I only went up to a weight of 135 so I could focus on my form. Even with that little weight, my shoulders were in a ton of pain! Do you have any tips on how to relieve it? My wrists aren't flexible enough to perform the alternative grip.

    Again, great lifts... looked easy.

    You are most likely holding it in the wrong spot. Bodybuilder style should not be painful.

    I didn't even see these comments, my bad.

    I don't really think when I'm training. I lift at home, so I pretty much do whatever I want, like making noise.

    Casio EX-Z850 - got it for $265 on newegg.com. Probably discontinued now, but it was noted for its video quality.

    I love the comments. Solid lifting.

    You need to bolt your squat racks down or something.
    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
    "You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial
    I has a blog.
    I has a facebook.

    I've tried doing these twice now and they freak'n KILL! I've poked around this site and done the Google thing, but all I can find is 'rest the bar on your shoulders' and 'keep your elbows up.' Is there any other advice that comes to mind? I'm thinking about giving up the movement completely. Sucks, I tell ya!

    Once again, impressive video man.

    Rest the bar on your delts. It will still hurt at first, but that area should toughen up quickly.
