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?

    Going for a change too (HTC-12)

    Hello, for 2 years ive been working out and getting alot without any particular routine, doing my compound and stuff. Now I feel like i need a change and ive come across the HTC-12 routine. Ive read it and i decided to do it but i have a question that makes me confused a little bit.

    *
    See in the exemple: * Bar x 6 reps (warm-up)
    * 135lbs x 1 (feel set)
    * 185lbs x 1 (feel set)
    * 225lbs x 1 (feel set)
    * 240lbs x 6 (work set)
    * 270lbs x 6 (work set)
    * 300lbs x 6 (work set)
    * 320lbs x 6 (work set)
    * 340lbs x 6 (work set) This was the previous best but the last rep felt easy, so go for another set
    * 350lbs x 6 (work set) Barely got the sixth rep.
    *

    Does that mean i must do this for every Bodypart/Movement / exercise? Also i forgot to mention that ill go for a 3 day split meaning ABA, BAB etc...

    Like for exemple what ill do next week fo the official startup ill do:

    Week 1

    A

    Vertical Pulling = chin
    Horizontal Pulling = db row
    Horizontal Pressing = bench
    Vertical Pressing = military press
    Triceps Exercise = body dip

    B

    Quad dominant = squat
    Hip dominant = dead
    Calf Exercise = seated raise
    Biceps Exercise = db curl
    Abs = cable crunch

    A

    Vertical Pulling = blabla etc***
    Horizontal Pulling
    Horizontal Pressing
    Vertical Pressing
    Triceps Exercise

    and EACH of these exercise ill have to do the whole feel set 3 time and 6 time the 6 rep thing. Doesnt it seems much like overtraining? I also feel like itll take me 3 hours to do it since i train with my father. Maybe i just have to feel it in real life and not on paper. I cant wait

    That is just an example they give you. It's more your call. On the big lifts like squat, bench, dead lift I use less volume on ramping the weights up. The program is all about the final cluster set so you don't want to be taxed for that set.
