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?

    My Rippetoe routine

    after countless hours of trying to figure out my schedule i came up with this routine...tell me what you all think. dont worry...i didnt change up the rippetoe routine.

    Workout A
    Tuesday: Squat 3x5
    Bench press 3x5
    Deadlifts 3x5
    Dips 2x8

    Workout B
    Thursday: Squat 3x5
    Standing Military Press 3x5
    Bent over rows 3x5
    Chin ups 2x8

    Workout A
    Saturday: Squat 3x5
    Bench press 3x5
    Deadlifts 3x5
    Dips 2x8

    and the following week will follow a BAB routine.

    Now, on MWF im going to add in a variation of cardio/Ab's...cardio lasting only about 20-25 min followed by abs...but this is only going to happen if i have time...but my question is...do you think the cardio is going to slow my bulk process? or do u guys think i should do some small cardio after my actual workouts followed by abs?

    It took you countless hours to decide not to change the rippetoe routine? Doing cardio WILL slow your bulk unless you eat enough to make up for it.

    No no...not countless hours to not change the routine. It just took sometime for me to balance out how I'm going to do college, work, as well as workout.

    But does anyone have any suggestions on doing cardio right after the workout as opposed to doing it on separate days with abs?

    I think Rippetoe recommends doing it right after lifting in Practical Programming. I'm not 100% sure about that though.
