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?

    Does this routine look alright?

    I only have 3 days a week to train. So I made this using some stuff I found online. Can you give me advice? I need an effective routine. Everything is usually 3x10. Near the ends of my sets I'll almost fail...to give you an idea of the weight I use.

    I know there is a lack of compounds. I have a lot of trouble getting Squat and Dead form down so I leave them out. I'll work on them on the side, though. And once I get them down completely I will add them in.

    Saturday: Back/Triceps/Abs
    - Straight Arm Pull-Down
    - Seated Row
    - Narrow Grip Pull-Down
    - Dumbell Row
    - Bench Dips
    - Lying Dumbell Extension
    - Overhead Dumbell Extension
    - Hanging Abdominal Leg Raises
    - Abdominal Crunch Machine

    Monday: Biceps/Chest
    - Flat Dumbell Press
    - Flat Dumbell Flye
    - Bench Press
    - Declined Push-Ups
    - Dumbell Curls
    - One-Arm Preacher Curls
    - Barbell Curls
    - Cable Rope Hammer Curls

    Wednesday: Legs/Shoulders/Abs
    - Leg Press
    - Leg Extension
    - Lying Leg Curl
    - Seated Machine Calf Raise
    - Seated Shoulder Press
    - Dumbell Lateral Raise
    - Front Deltoid Plate Raises
    - Hanging Abdominal Leg Raises
    - Abdominal Crunch Machine

    Add mass. It doesn't look like a lot to me. 3-4 exercises per body part.

    Agree 100%

    Nobody starts with perfect form on any lift. I have been lifting off and on for 10 years and i'm still on this site, watching videos, taking vids of myself lifting, trying to improve my squat & dead lift form. Just because your form is not good doesn't mean you should just leave them out.

    Unless you are an advanced lifter there is no reason why you can't make awesome gains in size and strength with a workout like this and eating properly. Start out light, practice your form, watch vids on this site, take vids of your self and study them.

    Alternate this workout every other day:
    Squat 3X5
    Press 3X5
    Dead lift 3X5
    Pull Ups 3X . . .

    Squat 3X5
    Bench Press 3X5
    Rows 3X5 (power clean once you learn them)
    Dips 3X . . . (using dip bars)

    It's not everyday. 3X a week. Once you become more advanced you will need a light (recovery) day in there.
