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?

    Training For Size

    Ok well I'm 5'10" or so and 170lbs right now and I'm looking to gain some mass. 180lbs or so is my first goal. I see lots of threads talking about training for strength, but my main goal is to gain size. Look Bigger, Feel Bigger. Don't get me wrong I could use the strength to but right now I would prefer to get size first.

    How does one go about training for size??? Is it the same as for strength?? Do size and strength go hand and hand or are they completely seperate from each other??

    Right now I go to the gym 3 days a week for a little over an hour each day. I'm aiming for 6-8 reps per set. Usually3 or 4 sets each exercise.

    Monday = Chest\Back
    Chinups or Pullups(when I figure out how to do more than 1 or 2)
    BB Bench Press
    Lat Pulldown
    Incline DB Press
    High Row
    Tuesday = Off
    Wednesday = Legs
    Leg Press
    Leg Curls
    Leg Extensions
    Calf Raises
    Thursday = Off
    Friday = Tri\Bi\Shoulders
    Tricep Press
    DB Curls
    Skull Crushers
    Concentration Curls
    Shoulder Press

    Anyways.. I guess I'm really asking for help to make me a size gaining routing that I can stick too. Wanna add deadlifts in there and get rid of Leg Curls cause the seated machine in my gym seems to put lots of stress on my knees and tends to hurt.
    Maybe I was big in a past life...

    How about we start off easy??

    Is 6-8 reps a good range for muscle growth for size??
    How about 3-4 sets??

    Gonna add deadlifts, sldl, good mornings too.
