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?

    Bodybuilding/Strength Hybrid Routine

    In the process of trying to create a routine for a mix of size and strength training. I was thinking something a long the lines of this:

    Monday (chest/tris):
    Flat Bench - 1x5 1x5 1x5
    Peck Fly Machine - 1x10 1x10 1x10
    Incline DB Press - 1x10 1x10 1x10
    Skull Crushers - 1x8 1x8 1x8
    Dips -1x10 1x10 1x10
    Rope Pushdown - 1x10 1x10 1x10

    Tuesday (Back):
    Chin-up - 1x10 1x10 1x10
    Deadlift - 1x5 1x5 1x5
    Lat Pulldown - 1x10 1x10 1x10
    Barbell Row - 1x5 1x5 1x5
    Seated Cable Row - 1x10 1x10 1x10

    Wednesday (off)

    Thursday (Legs):
    Squat - 1x5 1x5 1x5
    Calf Raises - 1x20 1x20
    Leg Press - 1x10 1x10 1x10
    Leg Curls - 1x10 1x10 1x10

    Friday (Shoulders/Bi's)
    OH Press - 1x5 1x5 1x5
    Lat Raise - 1x10 1x10 1x10
    Rear Lat Raise - 1x10 1x10 1x10
    Barbell Curl - 1x10 1x10 1x10
    Preacher Curl - 1x10 1x10 1x10
    Hammer Curl - 1x10 1x10 1x10

    I'm still debating on whether I want to set up the lifts that are 1x5 sorta like Starting Strength i.e. doing a proper warm-up (given) and lifting the same weight for 3x5, then increasing weight 5-10 pounds a week depending on the lift. I enjoyed doing linear progression. Open for thoughts and comments!

    Background info: Was on starting strength for about 4-5 months, before that I was doing Bill Starr's 5x5. Current Maxes: Bench: 225 Squat: 275 DL: 325. I gained a bunch of weight on SS, but I'm looking for a change of pace and thought I would give a hybrid routine a try...
