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?

    need some advice

    I'm 16 years old and i have varsity football coming up in 4 months. My coach told everyone that if you can't bench(max) your own weight then you cant be on the team and your cut. Im 5'11'' and weigh 165. Last time i tried maxing I could only max 135. Is it possible for me to be benching 165 by august 20th. If so then I need some good advice on what excercises to do to get my chest to pump 165lbs.

    Wow, thats messed up that a coach would do that...but none the less...

    Do you have a routine?
    You familiar with...
    incline bench, decline bench, close grip bench
    using dumbbells periodically instead of a bar really help strengthen

    If you are new to lifting I think it will be feasible...

    heavy benching is a lot of technique also...

    use the search to look up technique of bench press on this forum

    30 lbs in 4 months should be cake. Look up proper form on google and youtube. Study on how to make your lower back arch. That's atleast 15 lbs right there. Next make a routine and post it up here. Bench twice a week, use low reps in the 4-6 range. I wouldn't be surprised if you were benching atleast 185 by your deadline.
