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 workout routine....

    Hopefully this is the correct forum, I apologize in advance if it is not... I'm not a hardcore bodybuilder like most of you all here but I'm trying.

    I work out in my living room and am trying to loose a lot of weight. So far I'm down 25lbs and I'd like to drop another 30-50lbs. Easy at first but I seem to have run into a wall.

    So here's my routine, this takes between 40 and 50 minutes and I'm trying to do this 6x per week. I've only got 1 week of this under my belt but I plan on keeping it going.

    Monday and Thursday, 8 sets of the following which takes about 35-40 minutes:
    8x bicep curls with 25lb dumbell
    8x tricep extension with 25lb dumbell
    8x curls with 35lb bar (half the sets with a reverse grip)
    8x skull crusher with 35lb bar

    Tuesday and Friday, 8 sets of the following which takes about 35-40 minutes:
    8x military presses with 25lb dumbell
    8x upright row with 25lb dumbell
    8x shoulder shrugs
    8x arnold presses
    8x lateral raises

    Wednesday and Saturday, 8 sets of the following which takes about 35-40 minutes:
    10x pushups
    8x laying on the floor flys with 15lb dumbell
    8x laying on the floor presses with 25lb dumbell
    8x bent over row with 35l bar
    8x one arm row with 25lb dumbell

    Also I do this after every workout, 2 sets which takes about 15 minutes:
    20x left side crunches
    20x right side crunches
    20x regular crunches
    20 seconds plank
    20x leg raises

    I'm almost to the point to where I can manage the 25lb dumbell for all of the sets, I think some 35lb dumbells are coming up in the next couple of weeks. Also I need to figure out a way to work in some squats and lunges, I'm getting there :-)

    Thank you.

    Yes, I know... I've been thinking of a way to integrate it.

    I think instead of doing stomach after every routine I'll to stomach MWF and get a squat/lunge/calf raise routine together and do that TuThS.

    way too much arms and shoulders. Theres no need to spend so much time on all those small muscles.

    Squats and Deadlifts will burn more calories if your goal is to lose weight. Just do compound exercises and skip all the isolation stuff.

    Heres a sample routine:

    A
    Squats 5 x 5
    Rows 5 x 5
    Bench Press 5 x 5

    B
    Deadlifts 5 x 5
    Pull-ups 5 x 5
    Dips 5 x 5
