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?

    squat & Rom Deadlift same workout?

    The romanian deadlift is what I am using for ham development. Is that ok to use in a full body workout?

    Also, how does this routine look?

    Full body work out:
    Squat, RDL, shrug, pullups, flat bench, close grip BP, overhead press, chinups.
    1 to 2 work sets of 6 to 8 reps done 2 times weekly.

    Look ok? Thoughts?

    I do RDL's on the same day that I do Squats for the same reason as you. I don't see any problems with it yet.

    Looks reasonable depending on your progression scheme. I would substitute some type of row for the chin-ups though. You probably don't need both pull-ups and chin-ups, especially without some type of rowing movement.

    It is ideal to pair with the squat on a full body workout. Nice choice. Like Sean said, take out the pull-ups or chin-ups and replace it with a rowing exercise. Also, I think shrugs are a wasted effort with all the other exercises that will be hitting your traps.

    I've done both on the same day and had no issues.
