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?

    What do you guys think of this routine? Rate it for mass building if you could.

    Looks like a copy of Power-Rep Range-Shock, which from what ive read has had good results. There is no magic routine all you can do is try it and see how it works for you.
    Success is achieved by doing a little more than you thought you could, and a lot more than anyone else.

    The first number is the seconds required to lower the weight (eccentric contraction). The second number is the seconds you should pause after you've lowered the weight. The third number is the seconds required to raise the weight (concentric contraction).

    As a general rule I don't like anything that devotes a full day to shoulders and arms (as they are worked during chest and back workouts already). And 4 week cycles strike me as too short (at least for the beginner). I don't agree with always going to failure (the way he defines it)

    Nor do I like routines that are disguised ads for NO2 or other popular supplements-of-the-month.
