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?

    Todays Chest Workout

    Today I did this for chest (working sets):

    1. Bench Press 3x5 on pretty intense weight. The last set I would have failed on the fifth rep without a spotter.
    2. Dips 3x5 on bodyweight. Probably would have failed at 7 or 8 im guessing.
    3. Incline DB Press 3x5. Last two sets were really intense, almost failed on the third.

    Now I'm usually not sore to the touch if i rest three days between workouts. Does this mean I can lift chest every four days?

    I am trying to decide if I should do the WBB 1 routine, or follow this one I found in a post by Chris Mason:

    Mon/Thurs

    1. Bench Press: warmup followed by 2 sets to failure x 8 reps

    2. Dips: no warmup, 2 sets to failure (if you can do more than 10 reps, then use additional weight around your waist)

    3. skull crushers: 1 warmup, 2 sets to failure x 8 reps

    4. squats: warmup followed by 2 sets to failure x 12 reps

    5. leg extension: 1 set to failure x 10 reps, no warmup

    6. leg curl: 1 set to failure x 10 reps, no warmup

    Tues/Fri

    1. chins: 2 sets to failure (curl grip chins)

    2. Barbell row: warmup, 2 sets to failure x 8 reps

    3. Pulldowns: use a parallel grip bar or v-grip bar, no warmup, 2 sets to failure x 8 reps

    4. Behind the neck press: warmup, 2 sets to failure x 8 reps

    5. standing straight bar curls: warmup, 2 sets to failure x 8 reps

    6. hammer curls: no warmup, 1 set to failure x 8 reps

    7. calf raises: warmup, 2 sets to failure x 20 reps
