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?

    How does this routine look?

    I tell you I almost went insane trying to build the ultimate split routine. I was thinking maybe I should do SLDL with Deadlifts on Back day, and have a separate Chest and shoulder day since both of them will be 5x5. I decided to drop 5x5 from CG bench press to just 2 sets.

    The following routine is what I came up with after endless nights of scratching in my notebook:

    Wed - Legs
    Friday - Chest/shoulders/triceps
    Sun - Back/biceps


    This way I have three days of rest between legs and back day so my legs should be properly healed for some deadly deadlifts on sundays. And then they have two rest days before leg day.

    I now present to you my secret workout routine from my workout log.

    Legs:
    • 5x5 Front Squat
    • 1 Leg Press
    • 2 SLDL
    • 1 Lying leg curl
    • 2 Seated calf raise



    Back
    • 5x5 Deadlifts
    • 1 BB row
    • 1 CG pulldowns
    • 1 DB Shrug
    • 1 reverse machine flys
    • 1 BB curl
    • 1 Reverse BB curl


    Chest/shoulders/triceps
    • 5x5 Incline BB bench press
    • 1 Incline DB bench press
    • 1 Incline DB flys
    • 5x5 Seated BB shoulder press
    • 2 cable side laterals
    • 2 CG Bench press



    I feel like on chest/shoulders/triceps day I don't have enough energy, or my triceps are fried, and my military press is suffering. Should I have a different day just for shoulders? But that would have me hitting triceps twice a week and I don't want to do that.

    Questions?
    Opinions?
    Advice?

    You're only hitting each muscle once a week... probably not enough. Most three day splits are full body, 4 day splits are 2 upper and 2 lower...
