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?

    Critique my ME bench day

    I'm doing Defranco's Westside for skinny bastards routine. Heres what I did for bench today. Monday is my upper with max effort bench day. Last week I didn't work back down after doing 170, but I did today just to see what it would be like.

    Set Weight Reps
    1 130 8
    2 150 8
    3 160 6
    4 170 4(f)
    5 160 3(f)
    6 150 6(f)
    7 130 8(f)

    I'm guessing I shouldn't work back down like that, seems like too much volume (43 total reps). I guess if the first 4 sets don't seem like I'm working up to that 3-5 rep max correctly I need help on figuring how much weight/how many reps I should do before hitting my 3-5 rep max.

    Its about 1/3 of the way down the page. It says to work up to a 3-5 rep max set.
