Those quotes alone made my head hurt. Does that come about often on this forum?

Probably the dumbest things I keep hearing are that you can isolate your upper/middle/lower chest by changing the angle of a bench press, and that you can actually shape muscles instead of just making them bigger or smaller or losing fat off them. Some people don't have the genetics to get enormous peaks on their biceps, yet they think turning their wrist and doing preacher curls fixes all that.

Those quotes are common in the general forum, yes.

Not in this specific forum.

Are you the same Berfles that posts on wannabebig?

Most (?) bodybuilding books encourage wanna-bee Dorian-Arnold-Lee Schwartz-en-Yate-eys; no sales if the truth is widely told.

Not strictly bad workout advice but...

I work with a guy that I've known since our college days. Over the past 25 years, he's done no exercise and eaten whatever he wanted. (A big bowl of ice cream every night before bed, etc.) Put on 150+ pounds. But he held that he was perfectly healthy because his measured cholesterol numbers stayed constant around 150 - 160.

I visited him in the hospital just after his quad-bypass this spring. His cholesterol still measured below 160...

Some kid came up to me and told me that Benching won't develop my chest as well as doing pushups would, Not hating on pushups cause i do them a lot as well but it made me chuckle!

It's not true at all. It's an uninformed opinion that isn't based in science at all. It's a modern age thing. Throughout our history children hunted young, lifted heavy objects, and did hard work. But in our modern society we've been conditioned to "protect" our children so much that some people are scared to let them get their hands dirty at all. They can't play dodge ball, lift weights, shoot, or anything else that a soft liberal society has deemed as "unhealthy" whether it be physically or psychologically. We all hear about people with "bad" backs or "bad" knees, and they usually attribute it to lifting when they were younger. These people usually can't tell you what is "bad" about their body part, they simply say that they hurt it and blame lifting. And the uneducated believe them, and pass that belief on. And if it's "bad" for a full grown adult, it must be "bad" for children.
I would sig this if it wasn't so long.
