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?

    new guy here-guide me :)-lifting routine questions

    ok first of great site guys. been a lot of help and i dont even post that much. But now that i decided to stop doing college football and get a job, i am in need of your expertise.

    I'm 18 years old, 6' 210 lbs. my goals-short term are to get my strength and muscle size and density back-"long" term are to drop to around 195-200 and keep the strength gains.

    my situation is during summer training i had my bench up to 310'ish and my squat was close to 400. i was alot denser and i didnt feel so sluggish. now that i stopped playing football and missed the weight room a couple weeks my bench is back down to around 275 and i dont wanna know what the squat is :/

    ok anyway sorry for the book. i'd like to get some example routines that would be a great base to help me reach my goals. i'd really like to get up to 300 again on bench and get some more muscle under this flab thanks

    well it seems like whatever routine you were doing while playing football works. why not just stick with it? That will achive short term goals. And as far as the long term goal it will involve more diet the what routine you would be doing

    well the problem with that was it wasnt very long, and i had football practice along with it. so i was looking for a longer, more intense workout to makeup for not having practice

    5x5 for sure mate. It will do you whole body wonders if done correctly (proper nutrition n rest)

    the monday tuesday rest wednesday and lift thursday friday again isnt too much if i rest on the weekends too is it? and for being in college i find myself more nutrition cautious than most people my age.

    i need to start taking my protein after workouts again too along with the multi vitamins

    yeah you mean wannabebig 1.1? its a good routine i just prefer 5x5 cause you get to squat 3 times a week and I'm trying my best to learn to squat properly + it has all compound free weight movements as exercises.
