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?

    Routine....review

    Hey all,

    Been working out for a steady 6 months, eating fine and alot, sleeping a good 8+ hours per night(no more than 10) .

    My old routine was:

    Day 1:

    Chest and Back
    Dumbbell Incline Press 2x9-11
    Dumbbell Press 2x9-11
    Pushups 2x12-15
    One-arm dumbbell rows 2x10-12-15
    Deadlift 2x9-11
    Bent Rows 2x10-12-15
    DB Rows 2x8-10
    rest day

    Day 3
    Legs & Abs
    Back Squats 2x10
    Front Squats 2x10
    Good Mornings 2x10-12
    Standing Calf Push-ups 2x15

    Situps 2x20
    Russian Twist 2x10

    Rest day


    Day 5
    Bicep, Tricep, Shoulder
    Seated Dumbbell Press 2-3x6
    Standing Lateral Raises 2-3x6
    Front Dumbbell Raises 2-3x6
    Decline Skull Crushers 2x9-11
    Incline Dumbbell Curls 2x9-11
    Dumbell Tricep Extensions 2x10-12
    Hammer Curls 2x9-11

    I'm thinking of changing to (which is based from BGB):

    The 4 day split workout

    DAY 1 - HORIZONTAL PUSH PULL --- BACK

    • Bent barbell rows (vary the grip between pronated and supinated)

    • T-Bar Rows (vary the grip between pronated and supinated)

    • Rack Pulls

    • Dumbbell row

    • Hammer Strength row

    • Flat barbell press

    • Dumbbell press

    • Low incline press.

    • Flat or incline flies

    (Standing calves, short, heavy sets)

    DAY 2 - QUAD DOMINANT LEGS

    • Back Squats 2x10
    • Front Squats 2x10
    • Good Mornings 2x10-12
    • Calf Push-ups 2x15

    DAY 3 - VERTICAL PUSH/PULL

    • Lat Pulldowns

    • Pull Ups

    • Pull-Overs

    • Standing dumbbell press

    • Arnold press

    • Laterals, etc

    DAY 4 – HIP/HAMSTRING DOMINANT LEGS

    Hack squats

    Front Squats


    I am looking for people to critique the new one and also reflect on my previous routine. I added in the last 2 or so lines... feel free to critique that too . I love working out now and everyday is a new adventure which is great

    Thanks for all of your help WBB Forum members

    Joe

    I would switch it up and go over to BGB, many people have had a lot of sucess with this workout and im sure you'll see better gains with it than the workout your currently using.
    5'7
    180

    bench - 245 x 2
    squat - 315 x 5
    dl- 355 x 1
    goal - Bigger Faster Stronger
