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?

    First HCT-12 workout--Any suggestions?

    HCT-12 looks interesting so I have decided to give it a try. Did I do it correctly? I plan on doing the 3 day split. Looking for any advice or suggestions. Here is what I did:

    Bench: 195x6, 195x6, 205x6, 215x6, 225x6, 225x4, 225x1
    Lat pulldown: 110x6, 120x6, 120x6, 130x6, 130x6, 130x6, 130x2, 130x2
    Low pulley row: 110x6, 130x6, 130x6, 140x6, 150x6, 150x6, 150x2, 150x2
    Standing barbell press: 75x6, 85x6, 85x6, 85x6, 85x6, 90x6, 90x2, 90x2
    Close grip bench: 75x6, 95x6, 115x6, 125x5, 125x6, 130x5, 130x6, 130x2

    Pretty sure I overestimated my bench a bit and will probably keep it around the same for the next time. Also underestimated close grip bench for the starting point so next time I plan on starting higher. What else would you guys suggest for next time? Would you recommend that I keep doing the same exercises or should I be switching them up from week to week? Also does the order that I do the exercises in matter? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Not really sure what you're trying to do here... where are the rest pause sets? Why are you doing your top weight for multiple sets of 6?

    I'd read the routine section again. It's supposed to be one set of 6 followed by three sets of 2

    Yep, go through and read the program article in detail again.

    The protocol is to ramp up to your final set using sets of 6 reps (looks like you did this ok) and then hit a final 6 reps just shy of failure, rest, hit another 2, rest, hit another 2, rest and hit the final 2. You seem to have sometimes done 1 or 2 clusters of 2 instead of 3?
