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?

    Variety for maximum benefits?

    I know routines should be regularly changed/modified for variety but I'd like to know how much change would be enough? Like say after 4-6 weeks with a routine If I changed the rep or set range is that enough? Or if I just move exercises around is that enough variety? Or does just progressively adding weight week after week a good way to keep variety without changing much of the routine?

    I think it depends on a few things...like what routine your doing and how long you've been lifting.

    I started Rippetoes Novice routine a couple months ago and I plan on sticking with this until I peak on my heavy lifts. I'm gaining size and strength, so as long as that continues...I don't see a point in changing anything.

    rep ranges and movement order are variations i use. My rep ranges vary all the time but i only change movement order every 6-9 weeks.

    Very seldom do i trash my entire routine for a completely new one, usually the modifications I do with movement order and changing movements all together are done slowly. You might say it evolves every 6-9 weeks, but the backbone to it remains (albeit the placement changes) such as bench, squat, dead, row, oh press, pullup, and usually SLDL or GMs.
