The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Routine

    I was actually curious if someone with experience could help me make MY OWN routine. I want to go 5 days a week Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I have been working out for about a year and want a good routine that is for me. I want something that will get me big the fastest possible. Please help me to create my own that would be good for someone my age and weight.

    Age 17
    Height 5ft 8in
    Weigh 153lbs

    Ask if other info needed

    You should train 3 days per week and eat as much good food as you possibly can.

    Get stronger at:

    Squats
    Weighted chins
    Rows
    Shoulder presses
    Deadlifts
    Bench press

    This is a quick answer but a good answer, look into some good routines that focus on the core movements over 3-4 days per week.
    Squat briefs only 625 @ 210
    Bench geared 525 @ 210
    Deadlift geared 650 @ 220

    What is the rationale behind the 5 days per week? If you want something that will get you the most size the fastest, you should be willing to train that way even if it's only 3 or 4 days per week. Again, your diet is also going to be very important in this. Many of the routines mentioned in the stickies here are specifically designed for someone your size and age to gain size very quickly, so even if you are going to design your own routine it will likely end up looking almost identical to one of the premade routines already here. You should also list your numbers (even if they are rep maxes) in the main lifts (SQ, DL, BP, overhead press).
    I would also suggest you read through the Tom Mutaffis Q&A thread as he has some good routines in there as well. You might also post your question in that thread, but only after you have read through the entire thing and he might be able to give you some feedback (but I won't make any guarantees since I don't want to speak for him).

    Sled pulls are great for conditioning and active recovery. They won't overwork you in the same way weights will and will actually help with the soreness.
