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?

    Need help and advice on new routine!

    Need advice on new routine

    Hey, just joined a new gym and would like some opinions on the routine ive been given by personal trainer.
    Not sure the content of sets and reps is enough. Basically been going to gym for ten years, have fairly defined body but need to change my routine as my body shape is stuck in a rut. Im 6ft 2 and 11.5 stone, so obviously fairly skinny but do heavy weights when I work out. My new routine is like this:-

    Workout for monday
    Squats 1 set of 20
    Shrugs 2 sets of 15
    Leg Press 3 sets of 10
    Leg Raise 3 sets of 20
    Crunch 2 sets of 20
    Side Bridge 2 sets of 10

    Workout for wed's and friday
    Bench Press 1 set of 15
    Dumb bell row 3 sets of 10
    Shoulder Press 3 sets of 10
    Lat Pulldown 3 sets of 10

    What worries me is why only 1 set for bench press and why no bicep and tricep exercises

    Have also changed my diet to consume at least 3000 calories.

    Cheers

    There is a definate lack of movements for the glute/ham muscles. There should be some kind of deadlift in there, or at the very least a leg curl.
    One set for bench does seem silly since everything else for upper body has multiple sets. Still, there is nothing wrong with a single set in the right program.
    Check out the routines here on WBB. I'm sure you'll find something better.
