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?

    Reach 185 pounds of lean muscle.

    My goal to reach 185 pounds officially starts today. I took sometime to learn what I did wrong the first time I tried to reach my goal. Now I think I am ready. I will start my daily calorie intake at 3000 calories a day for 4 weeks. During this time I will watch my body fat percentage closely. Then increase my daily calorie intake to 4000 calories a day.
    weight---> 165
    Height---> 6'01
    Goal-->Reach 200 pounds
    Squat - N/A
    bench: N/A
    I had to accept I was being a pussy and now I am gaining weight.
    Progression

    I worked really hard today at work but I decided to lift anyway. I focused on chest, legs and mid-section, since my abs got enough from work alone I skipped my ab routine.

    SAT- squats 5x5 = 225lbs, 245lbs, 245lbs, 255lbs, 255lbs

    bench 5x5 = 160lbs, 165lbs, 165lbs, 170lbs, 175lbs

    side-lifts 2x10 = 70lbs

    skull crushers 2x10 = 25 each hand.

    Bench Burnout = 135lbs for 13 reps


    I went lite on bench because my traps were wore out from work today.

    i mean like, why did you go from...

    160 to 165 to 170 etc...

    you should be able to do more weight if you did something like

    115>135>155>175>195

    edit: im not suggesting anything, do you have any reason for doing it that way?

    Oh.... I'm doing this way for no reason at all. I use to do the same weight for the whole set. example 170 5x5 but I just wanted to try something random to "stock" my muscles. But I don't know if its working at all.

    My plan is this.. 160 to 165 to 170 to 175.. then next week I will drop the 160 and start at 165 and end at 180 and continue this until It fail..
