The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Workout and Dieting routine proper for a cut?

    Ok, I need some help identifying whether or not my workout and dieting routine are proper for a cut I wish to begin.

    I'm 6'1" and weigh 240 lbs. I'm anywhere from 15 to 20% body fat and hope to cut down to 10%. I have no way of telling exactly, but I know I need to cut.

    As for my workout, it consists of a 4 day split. I've consulted about that here earlier and cut down the volume.

    Day 1:
    Bench Press- 4x6
    Incline Press 4x6
    Skull Crushers 3x12

    Day 2:
    Squat 8x3
    Hack Squat 8x3
    Leg Press 8x3
    Abductor 12x3
    Adductor 12x3

    Day 3:
    Pull-ups to failure x3
    Seated or T-Bar row 8x3
    Bent over BB row 8x3
    Barbell Curl 8x3

    Day 4:
    Military Press 8x3
    Seated Calf Raise 15x3
    Standing Calf Raise 15x3
    Dumbbell Shrug 8x3

    I hit overtraining last week when my full body was sore and slept 12 hours a night but was still tired. On my off days I plan to do 30 min. of cardio, either steady state or HIIT depending on the mood.

    As for meal plan, I'm consuming 2500 calories in a day, at 39% Protein, 36% Carb, 25% fat. Mind you, my metabolism is extremely slow. Should I increase/decrease carbs?

    Yeah, the older generation of weightlifters probably didn't.

    Thanks.
