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?

    Hulk got me excited about push/pull splits and I have not done one in a long time.


    Tuesday

    All exercises 2 sets of 8,6

    CHEST

    -Incline Barbell Bench press
    -Flat Bench Press

    SHOULDERS

    -Overhead press

    (I lean back a tad because it feels more comfortable, works my traps as well, and I feel I bring more muscle groups into play. I don't lean back too far just a bit).

    -1 set of 10 seated side laterals
    -1 set of 10 bent over laterals for my rear shoulders

    TRICEPS

    -E-Z Bar Bench Bench press (close grip)
    -Upright Dips

    QUADS

    -squats
    -squat press (machine)


    SATURDAY

    BACK

    -weighted chinups
    -1 arm rows (I wish I could do them with a barbell but I can't get my form right)
    -seated pulley rows

    HAMSTRINGS

    -Stiff legged deadlifts
    -Leg Curls

    CALVES

    -standing calf raises 4 sets

    It seems a bit long but I keep a fast pace

    Number of Sets

    You might want to split up your routine into a few more days instead of only two days a week. And also instead of doing only 2 sets on each exercise, do 3 to 4. Switch it up each week.

    Just want to say that I'm liking this routine. For some reason I'm not getting worse on lifts after my main lifts if y'all know what I mean.
