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?

    Comments on my workout routine please

    I am trying to build mass so I use heavy weights and less reps. I lift everyday, but split my workouts into chest, bi's, tri's, shoulders one day and back and legs the next. I do 3 sets for each exercise. Any comments on if I should do more, or if I am doing too much or anything else would be appreciated.

    Chest: Flat press
    Mid incline press
    Full incline press
    Biceps: Preacher curls
    Triceps: Tricep extensions (skull crushers)
    French press
    Shoulders: Lateral Raise
    Military press

    Back: One arm bent row (on knee on bench, one foot on floor)
    Bent barbell row (elbows out)
    Bent underhand row
    Legs: Squats
    Leg extensions
    Leg curls

    The routine I'm on is a varied version of

    That being said, I'd replace Preacher Curls with Standing Barbell Curls on bicep day, and work in some Weighted Dips on chest day.

    On shoulder day I'd add Seated Dumbbell Press along with Barbell Militaries.

    Also for some movements you might just want to do two sets instead of three, bringing down the total sets. Essentially a personal preference that helps my recovery time.

    why replace preacher curls with standing curls. Preachers are better isolation curls. I do my hammer curls standing.

    preachers vs. standing is really a matter of preference. You can do more with bb though, better for mass I believe. Anyway, the routine looks good, except if you're doing incline for just chest it's kind of a waste, as declines put your chest in it's natural range of motion. Incline involve heavy delt involvement.
