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?

    Well I have some other health issues that make it hard to be consistent... in the years that I have been lifting I have taken long breaks and sometimes have been forced to stop. I won't go into my health history... lets just say that my doctor has approved me to lift, but sometimes I need to take breaks for a few months...

    It takes time and dedication man...
    keep eating, and keep pushing those weights...

    I started out barley benching 95 x 8...
    Now I can throw up a max of 205...

    100% increase...

    Being tall doesn't help though =-(

    Assuming your doctor approves, eat natty peanut butter sandwiches along with a banana for two of your snacks. Consume steaks, lots of em. Whole milk too. Twice a week do Squats, BP, OHP, Deads, and Rows (2 sets each for 6-10 reps after a good warmup). Add 3 months. Post your stats again in October

    You're welcome.

    Don't do deads twice a week. Once is plenty. Everything else yes.... I guess.

    I thought rows werent a compound movement? That just isolates upper back, right? What is OHP? Is that overhead press? Also, are you suggesting doing all those exercises on the same day, twice a week?

    rows are a compound movement. You use your traps, shoulders and bis directly.
