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?

    What do you think of my routine?

    Hi there,

    I'm a textbook skinny guy who has been working out for just over a year now. I workout three times a week and have worked my way through quite a few programs building up the weights I could lift. I know that the weights here are hardly huge but when I first started out 14 months ago, I was benchpressing a "mighty" 20 kgs! Am I 35 years old and 5 foot 9 tall. I weigh 140 lbs with 15.6% body fat.

    I don't have any unrealistic ambitions of becoming king of the gym or anything, I just want to develop a well toned and defined body, probably kind of like a lightweight boxer. So, what do you think of my new routine?
    I workout three times a week and just alternate these two workouts. I lift 8 to 10 reps on each set and do 3 sets of each. I also do some pretty standard core exercises and cardio.
    Day 1
    Incline Pull (wide grip) 50kg
    Leg press 90kg
    Chin ups (wide grip) Bodyweight
    One arm row 27.5kg
    Arnie Press 12.5kg dumbbells
    Barbell French press 20kg
    Bicep curl (cables) Plate 11
    Bicep 21s (to failure) 20kg barbell

    Day 2
    Leg press 90kg
    Chest press 2.5kg dumbbells
    Chest Flys 17.5kg dumbbells
    Cuban press 7kg dumbbells
    Dumbbell pullover 27.5kg dumbbell
    Upright row 30kg barbell
    French press 9kg dumbbells
    Bicep curl 14kg dumbbells

    I'd love to hear any tips you might have, positive or negative.

    And you can't predetermine what weights you're going to use. You're goal should be to lift heavier and heavier with each workout.
