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?

    Terminal knee extensions?

    TKE's are apparently good for rehabing knees...anyone try them? How well do they work, and how many reps, sets should I do?

    I do them before and after my workouts, usually 2 sets to failure on each leg.

    Two sets to failure? Seriously? What are you using for weight? I can't imagine doing them to failure.

    I do them fairly often when warming up for a couple of sets of 20 or so reps.

    I shouldnt say failure....but near failure basically. I was reading some Q&A on elitefts.com and they said due to the muscle type (forget which), this exercise should be done to near failure. I use a green band for these.

    By the way I do these for rehabilitation purposes.

    Ok, I'll go with that. I usually use the lights or greens, too.
