The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Tumbler's Road to 220lbs

    Alright I'm sitting at 203lbs at 6'1-6'2". I weighed about 170 when I as 18, I'm 20 now. So 35 lbs of LBM (about the same BF% now as I was then) isn't too shabby for 2 years but it could be WAY better. I'm going to crank up the intensity and dieting and pack on some mass. My lifts (especially bench) have been pretty stagnant for a while I think if I up the intensity and diet I should be able to break this plateau.

    I put together a routine I'm going to be starting once school gets out, until then I'm going to continue on with my body part split that I've been doing for most of this school year. Its built around the BGB routine with an extra lift or two of assistance added, let me know what you think:

    Monday - Horizontal push/pull (calves and abs)
    Bench – 5x5
    Incline DB – 3x8
    Flies – 3x12
    Rack pulls – 5x5
    Bent over rows – 3x8

    Tuesday - Quad/Bicep
    Full squats – 5x5
    Leg Press – 3x8
    Leg curls – 3x12
    EZ bar curls – 3x8
    Alternating curls – 3x8(or 12)

    Thursday - Vertical push/pull (calves and abs)
    Chins – 5x5
    Hammer High rows – 3x8
    Military press – 5x5
    Standing laterals – 3x8

    Friday - Hamstring/Triceps
    Romanian Deadlift – 5x5
    Good mornings – 3x8
    Skull crushers – 3x8
    Cable pushdowns – 3x12

    Today's workout (shoulder/Tri)
    Seated military press - barx6, 95x6, 135x5, 140x5, 140x5(f), 135x2x5
    Upright rows - 90x8, 110x2x8
    Laterals - 3x8
    Skull crushers - bar+70lbs - 3x8
    V bar pushdowns - 140x8, 160x8, 180x7

    I'm hoping this journal and some feedback from you other members will keep me motivated.
