The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    I'm just curious: How can you measure your biceps and triceps separately?
    All weights in kilograms in my posts. 1 kg = 2,2 lbs

    My training log.
    My foreign language study site.

    Back again :o
    measurements pretty much the same
    dropped 2kg though
    so bodyweight's 98kg now
    Dumbell pressing 55lbs for 8
    Squating 40kg + olympic bar (could go higher but im a bit worried about my technique, might ask one of the guys at the gym to see what he thinks)
    Deadlifts (110lbs REALLY BAD TECHNIQUE I SUCK AT DEADLIFTS , I think it's cause im not holding the bar high enough, keep hitting my knees on the way down and i know its got nothing to do with strength cause my BB row is almost the same)
    Barbell Bent Over Row - 90lbs
    Incline Dumbell Bicep Curl (35lbs - After back exercises and not much of an incline, more like seated to stop me cheating with my back )

    I think I might be overtraining my biceps though :/
    cause my Back & Bi day consists of
    Deadlifts (2 Work sets)
    Lat-Pulldown (2 Work sets)
    Bent-Over Row (2 Work sets)
    Incline Dumbell Bicep Curl (2 Work sets)
    Hammer Curls (2 Work sets)

    Maybe I should drop the hammer curls?

    And I see what you mean about the measuring bicep seperately from tricep, I spose the correct term would be Arm size or something

    Oh yea the measurements were flexed and I got one other question. Is bone size a measure of potential? Cause im around 5'7 and have a 7"inch wrist and a 12" ankle. Is that good?

    end of april
    measurements same, cept bicep's now 14 1/2"
    weight dropped to 96kg
    Db pressing 65lbs for 5
    Squating 90kg (inlc. bar) for 8
    Deadlifts 75kg (inlc. bar) for 8 (special thanks to the guys who helped me in the training forum )
    Bb Row 65kg (inlc. bar) for 5
    Seated Db Curl - 40lbs for 4

    still aiming for those 85lb Db by midyear
    and 105lb Db by end of year
    hopefully the Db increments wont be to much of a problem
    from now on Db's go 65,75,85,95,105, no more 5lb increments

    Not bothering to take measurements this month
    had a shocking amount of workouts
    only 4 workouts the whole month
    had soccer the first 3 weeks then i was sick the last week
    but back to normal now so im gonna hit it hard for the next month
    and go on from there

    One good thing was that I got my first triple digit lift
    100kg squat for 5
    now to get the deadlift to triple digits

    <no measurements this month>
