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?

    Good Workout For Building A "Big" Chest.

    Hiya,

    I've been a member on here for a long time now, and learned a lot. I want to start off by saying I don't and never will want have a "body builder" type physique. I'm probably just over 6ft, and will be exstactic if I can ever reach 180lbs (maybe a bit more) and be quite lean.

    I'm only 160lbs at the moment. I used to feel my chest was one of my stronger points, but I've noticed it's starting to lag behind a little.

    My chest day (or day which involves chest) looks like this:

    Flat barbell press 5x5
    Low incline press 3x8
    Dips 3x8

    Bent barbell rows: 5x5
    One arm DB Rows 3x8
    Rack Pulls 3x8

    My whole workout looks like this:

    Monday


    Flat barbell press 5x5
    Low incline press 3x8
    Dips 3x8

    Bent barbell rows: 5x5
    One arm DB Rows 3x8
    Rack Pulls 3x8

    Wednesday


    Squats: 5x5
    SLDL: 3x8
    Barbell Bicep curls: 3 x 8

    Friday

    Pull Ups: 5x5
    Lat Pulldowns: 3 x 8
    Pull-Overs : 3 x 8

    Standing Military Press: 5x5
    Dumbbell Lateral Raise: 3 x 8
    CGBP: 3x8

    Sunday

    Deadlifts: 3 x 5
    Squats: 3x8
    Hack squats: 3 x 8
    Curls: 3 x 8

    My "Low incline" bench, is exactly, that, not my angle at all. I feel my upper chest is lacking a little, what can I do to try correct this? Perhaps a whole new workout?

    Why are you working your triceps 3x a week, especially the day before your bench? Throw your routine away and start over. You would be better served with one of the prebuilt routines on the site.
