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?

    A few Questions.

    Hello fellow iron pumpers..

    I have a few questions.. this is around my second month of weight lifting.

    1) When is the ideal time to get your protein in? Within 3 hours of your workout??

    2) Here are my exercises... I'm not too sure which ones to pair up with which for my routine and in which order.....
    Bicep Curls, Bench Press with Push ups, Tricep dips, Dead Lifts, Shoulder Shrugs, Seated military press, leg extensions, bent over rows

    Thats all for now,
    Thank you

    Protein after lifting.... a lot of people talk about the 'golden hour' (in its most basic terms, a period after training when muscles are most absorbent)
    I go for the 'golden minute'. I mean why wait. just down a shake as soon as soon as you finish.
    The average is the borderline that keeps mere men in their place. Those who step over the line are heroes by the very
    act. Go. - H. Rollins

    I'm starting out at home, so that when I get to the gym I will be able to push some decent weight..
    I have a bench press plus an extra bar, with around 200 pounds.
    I might be turn the beng press things ( things that hold the weight in the air) around so that I can do squats.
