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?

    Benno's NEW Journal

    Hey Thanks for viewing!

    This will be my first journal which will help me keep a close view on my lift results throughout my program to see what gains i make. Within the next year of so i'd love to compete and know that i will be working as hard as ever in and out of the gym. Previously to this workout ive trained for about 2 years now, i wouldnt say hardcore for the whole 2 years though. Ive always prefered 1 Body day per day splits to 3 or 4 day splits.

    So for a quite some time ive done this split:

    Chest
    Arms
    Legs
    Back
    Shoulders
    OFF
    OFF

    Recently over the past week of so i bought the newest arnold schwarzenegger book " The new encyclopedia of bodybuilding " Arnold has always been someone ive always idolized in the bodybuilding world and this book i totally RECOMMEND to anyone from beginner to competing levels.

    Over the next 30 days, i will be using a advanced (level 1) program out of this book which is quite a lot different to my normal training routines and will be interesting to see what gains i make. A lot of the routine ive copyed the exercises which he recommends to do but added another split routine to make it a 3 day split. I did this so im not in the gym for over 2 hours and to break it up a bit and will give certain bodyparts more rest. The routine looks like this starting this monday:

    Monday: ( WORKOUT #1 ) Chest Back Calves
    Tuesday: ( WORKOUT #2 ) Biceps Triceps Forearms
    Wednesday: ( WORKOUT #3 ) Quads Hammys Shoulders
    Thursday: ( WORKOUT #1 ) Chest Back Calves
    Friday: ( WORKOUT #2 ) Biceps Triceps Forearms
    Saturday: ( WORKOUT #3 ) Quads Hammys Shoulders
    Sunday: OFF

    I will Be taking measurements on weight and bodyparts tomorrow sometime so stay posted. Then finally ill add my first workout Monday

    If anyone could follow my program and keep me posted on how i went throughout workouts it would be really appreciated! Support will only help my detication and its always good to get some feedback on workouts. I promise to do the same back

    Thanks guys, all the best
    TRAIN HARDDDDDDDDDDDD

    Workout #1 25/5/2009

    Workout was really different compared to a 1 bodypart per day split. The volume and the intensity really made me work. Having 1 minute rests ment that i got tired very quickly compared to last programs having 2-3 minutes. Today my chest is so smashed through the front delts , outer pecks and right across the upper/middle pecks. Lats are also very tired Calfs arent so.. i dont seem to get that sore calfs might change it up on my next workout incorporating high rep supersets. I ended up exchanging pull overs to uppercuts as the pull overs were putting bad strain on my delts.

    Overall 9/10

    Monday: ( WORKOUT #1 ) Chest Back Calves

    CHEST

    Barbell Bench Press (1 Warmup , 4 Sets )
    14-16 Reps (Warmup) 16 @ 40kg
    10-12 (Workset) 10 @ 70kg
    8-10 (Workset) 8 @ 72.5kg
    4-6 (Workset) 5 @ 75kg
    4-6 (Workset) 3 @ 75kg

    Didnt quite make the rep range in the last set, wud have if i had a spoter!

    Barbell Incline Bench Press ( 4 Sets )
    10-12 (Workset) 6 @ 60kg
    8-10 (Workset) 8 @ 50kg
    4-6 (Workset) 6 @ 55kg
    4-6 (Workset) 5 @ 55kg

    Obviously my first set the weight was too heavy coming straight from the flat benches.

    Dumbbell Flys ( 3 Sets )
    10-12 (Workset) 10 @ 15's
    8-10 (Workset) 8 @ 17.5's
    4-6 (Workset) 5 @ 20's

    These felt REAL good.

    Cable Crossovers ( 3 Sets )
    12-15 (Workset) 12 @ 36kg
    10-12 (Workset) 10 @ 41kg
    8-10 (Workset) 7 @ 46kg

    Again these felt good.

    Uppercuts ( 3 Sets )
    12-15 (Workset) 12 @ 18kg
    12-15 (Workset) 12 @ 14kg
    12-15 (Workset) 12 @ 9kg

    By this exercise my chest was completely spent. These i felt hit really well on the lower outer pecks.

    Total time: 44mins Calories Burnt: 520 Average Heart Rate: 137

    BACK

    Chin Ups ( 4 Sets )
    (Min of 10) 9 @ BW
    (Min of 10) 5 @ BW
    (Min of 10) 5 @ BW
    (Min of 10) 4 @ BW

    These i felt really hard having 1 minute rests. Found i cud get close to my range on the first set but lacked badly in the next 3. One of my goals is to get 10+ reps bodyweight over 4 sets.

    Close Grip Chins ( 4 Sets )
    (Min of 10) 10 @ assisted 40kg
    (Min of 10) 9 @ assisted 40kg
    (Min of 10) 10 @ assisted 45kg
    (Min of 10) 10 @ assisted 45kg

    These i still griped overhand, exactly the same as a wide grip chin though i griped ALOT closer together. By this exercise my lats were hit hard so i changed the volume by increasing the weight assisted so i could lift within the rep range. I felt this worked really well!

    T-Bar Rows (Freeweight , 4 Sets ) NOT including the olympic bar in weight
    12-15 (Workset) 12 @ 40kg
    10-12 (Workset) 12 @ 50kg
    8-10 (Workset) 8 @ 60kg
    6-8 (Workset) 8 @ 60kg

    These hit the mid back and traps really hard, felt perfect.

    Bent Over Barbell Rows ( 4 Sets )
    8-12 (Workset) 12 @ 40kg
    8-12 (Workset) 12 @ 40kg
    8-12 (Workset) 12 @ 40kg
    8-12 (Workset) 12 @ 40kg

    These felt really good after the T-bars and tied in well for back thickness.

    Total time: 43mins Calories Burnt: 489 Average Heart Rate: 135

    CALVES

    Seated Calf Raises ( 4 Sets )
    10-12 (Workset) 12 @ 60kg
    10-12 (Workset) 10 @ 60kg
    10-12 (Workset) 9 @ 60kg
    10-12 (Workset) 10 @ 55kg

    Standing Calf Raises ( 4 Sets )
    12-15 (Workset) 15 @ 60kg
    10-12 (Workset) 10 @ 70kg
    6-8 (Workset) 10 @ 80kg
    6-8 (Workset) 7 @ 90kg

    Total time: 13mins Calories Burnt: 133 Average Heart Rate: 128

    Crunches ( 3 Sets )
    (Min of 20) 30Reps
    (Min of 20) 25Reps
    (Min of 20) 20Reps

    Workout #1 28/5/09

    Workout was pretty good! Still lacking in Flat bench press i feel! Was hard though cause i was still sore in the outer peck and front delt. Im sure i will get used to this training within a few weeks though. Workout was almost 20mins quicker too compared to my last workout #1! So was a very intense workout.

    CHEST

    Barbell Bench Press (1 Warmup , 4 Sets )
    14-16 Reps (Warmup) 16 @ 40kg
    10-12 (Workset) 12 @ 70kg
    8-10 (Workset) 7 @ 72.5kg
    4-6 (Workset) 3 @ 75kg
    4-6 (Workset) 4 @ 70kg

    Did struggle with this exercise i feel. Part of the probelm is that i was still sore from the previous workout and still had no spoter.

    Dumbbell Incline Bench Press ( 4 Sets )
    10-12 (Workset) 12 @ 25kg DB'S
    8-10 (Workset) 8 @ 27.5kg DB'S
    4-6 (Workset) 6 @ 27.5kg DB'S
    4-6 (Workset) 5 @ 27.5kg DB'S

    Changed barbell incline to DB incline as ive always prefered DBS and get better benefit.

    Dumbbell Flys ( 3 Sets )
    10-12 (Workset) 12 @ 15's
    8-10 (Workset) 9 @ 17.5's
    4-6 (Workset) 5 @ 20's

    These felt REAL good. Quite a big difference compared to last workout.

    Cable Crossovers ( 3 Sets )
    12-15 (Workset) 15 @ 36kg
    10-12 (Workset) 12 @ 41kg
    8-10 (Workset) 7 @ 46kg

    Managed to get a extra 5 reps more than last workout over the 3 sets. Again these felt good.

    Machine Pullovers ( 3 Sets )
    12-15 (Workset) 12 @ 52.3kg
    12-15 (Workset) 12 @ 50kg
    12-15 (Workset) 12 @ 47.5kg

    Decided to change uppercuts to pullovers to isolate the serratus. These worked really well at the end of the chest workout.

    BACK

    Chin Ups ( 4 Sets )
    (Min of 10) 10 @ BW
    (Min of 10) 5 @ BW
    (Min of 10) 5 @ BW

    These again were difficult with little rest. Did manage to hit 10 reps on the first set though, and managed to get 2 extra reps over the 4 sets compared to last workout.

    Close Grip Chins ( 4 Sets )
    (Min of 10) 11 @ assisted 40kg
    (Min of 10) 10 @ assisted 40kg
    (Min of 10) 11 @ assisted 45kg
    (Min of 10) 11 @ assisted 45kg

    Felt better and got more reps than last workout.

    T-Bar Rows /w V Grip. (Freeweight , 4 Sets ) NOT including the olympic bar in weight
    12-15 (Workset) 15 @ 50kg
    10-12 (Workset) 10 @ 55kg
    8-10 (Workset) 8 @ 60kg
    6-8 (Workset) 8 @ 60kg

    These hit the mid back and traps really hard again. Heaps better than last workout in the first two work sets.

    Bent Over Barbell Rows ( 4 Sets )
    8-12 (Workset) 12 @ 40kg
    8-12 (Workset) 10 @ 50kg
    8-12 (Workset) 10 @ 50kg
    8-12 (Workset) 10 @ 50kg

    Hey benno, where is Australia are you?



    Oh, and throw out that arnold book. Now. Its rubbish, your doing too much work - you could train twice as hard as you are now and do it in half the time, seeing more results.

    Hey Risk10k,

    First of all thanks for the reply, my first

    Im from a Place south of Perth Western Australia called Bunbury. Your very open and straight to the point i see haha, but thats cool! Why is it you think the arnold book is so rubbish? Im very aware my training has big volume and i havent trained this way before so im willing to give it a go for 5 weeks ( 6days train per week ) for a total of 30days. Ive done plenty of other programs and would be interested in seeing what results i could get from a workout produced by arnold. Obviously its a short time workout program of 30days meaning if i dont get results i simply will change. If i do get very good results i will mix new exercises into other exercises ( which i felt gave me great results ). I like the program as i can train major muscle groups twice and completely different. Like every 3 workout on major muscle groups like chest i will train heavy 4-6 reps. What is it you have in mind?

    Benno.

    Heh, I'm in Thornlie in Perth


    There is ALOT of studies into workout time, time under tension, sets and reps for hytrophey/strength gain, body part splits and time between training body parts. I would comfortably say that arnold probally never planned half of the workouts in the book, but I digress. Its not a very sound routine, but if you would like to attempt it - go for it! I'd recommend checking out WBB1 on the main site for 3 or 4 months before changing things up, or even BGB if you find that you are a little more advanced (I've had great success with very simple routines).

    Another thing to think about is intensity. If I trained with full intensity doing your routine, I'd be stuffed! High intensity interval training makes you grow ALOT faster, something else to consider. Just sticking with compounds is the way to go, add supplemental exercises and thats it. Work on getting stronger above all, and focus on eating well
