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?

    hardgaining is the life for me

    Hello all and great lifting to all.

    Starting up a training log should keep me motivated. Any feedback, ideas, thoughts are more then welcome here.

    Age - 26
    Height - 6' 1"
    Weight - 170 lbs

    - Gain 8-10lbs of lean body mass in a one year time frame.(Dec07-Dec08)
    - stick to clean, unprocessed foods... eat a 80-90% clean diet. (I do a lot of food prep and cooking of late)
    -improve heart, lungs and overall flexibility by adding cardio + stretching sessions 2-3 times weekly.
    -improve sleep: get 8-9 hours nightly.(have 2 young lads... making this very hard)

    Short term Lifting goals:
    - DL 300 * 6
    - SQ 250*6
    - BB Rows 150*6
    - Dips BW +50

    I started lifting when I was 20 and made great gains back then on a 5 day split. (Was eating anything and everything in sight) I stopped lifting @ 23 when we had are first son and picked it back up about a year ago. I have struggled with my diet/ digestion for the past couple of years and have finally felt better with eliminating most to all processed foods. Now that I have some control over my diet which I believe has limited my results over the past year hopefully things will start progressing. I will be lifting 3 times and doing cardio 2 times weekly.

    note: I train at home, in a power rack, and focus around compound movements.

    Routine: (Push/Pull/Legs)
    - Push -
    Dips 4*6
    standing OHP 4*6
    Incline BP 3*10
    accessory work 2*12(switch it up... eg. pullovers, DB lateral raises, tri. pulldowns)
    ab work

    TBDL 4*6
    BB Row 4*6
    Pull ups (aim for 30) 6*5
    Shrugs 3*10

    Squats 4*6
    c. raises 3*15
    SLDL 4*6
    ab work

    Any suggestions or thoughts on my goals, routine would be appreciated?
