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?

    What will you do for size...

    If you can curl for 100x10 pounds will you do

    1) 10x100 10x90 10x80 10x70 etc or stop

    2) 10xX 10x70 10x80 10x90 10x100

    3) 10x100 8x100 6x100 etc or stop

    4) 4x100 6x100 8x100 10x100

    5) 4x120 6x110 8x105 10x100

    6) combine some of this method : 10x70 10x80 10x90 10x100 8x100 6x100 or 10x70 10x80 10x90 10x100 10x90 10x80 etc...


    What will you do ? For every exercices ?

    I'll probably use 10x70 10x80 10x90 10x100 then 8x100 6x100 ! or 10x100 8x105 6x110

    thank you !

    I would not pre-fatigue myself with performing the set with 110 lbs x 10 reps to failure. I would bump the weight up to 115-120 lbs and get as many reps as possible. In other words, I would perform my heaviest set first in my workout (after having properly warmed up, of course), then reduce the resistance, or keep it the same, and perform another set for as many reps as possible. I want to put the ultimate challenge to my muscles when they are fresh, thus allowing myself to train with the heaviest weights I am capable of.

    I do that the other way round

    I'll go for heaviest for lower reps first set, then drop the weight and go for higher reps.
