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?

    questing about mixing in dead lifts on chest day

    Aight.. I had a bad experience with dead lift's a while back, lower back injury due to improper form. Ever since then I have avoided doing them but im getting back to it starting this week. After watching a ton of video's for reference I went to the gym and worked on my form and feel comfortable. My routine changes this week and last's for 3 weeks, I'll just give you the Monday since this pertains to the question:

    Mon - Chest

    Incline DB press
    Incline Fly's
    Flat DB press
    Flat DB fly's
    Cable Fly's upper & lower

    Tues - Bi's Tri's

    Wed - Legs

    Thurs - Back

    Fri - Shoulders

    I was wondering if book ending this routine with dead lift's is pointless? Should I only keep dead lift's to Back days? I want to do them twice a week, Chest day (monday) and Back day (Thursday).

    Why do you have to do deadlifts twice a week?
    IMO if your doing them twice a week, plus squats, your legs are going to be dead
    or else your not doing them hard enough

    Do it if you want to. To be honest though, your whole routine needs an overhaul.

    tom, thanks for the info you linked which i read and im not sure if it is what i am looking for.. maybe i can clear up what I am thinking. I have been lifting for a few years off and on but have been serious about training for about 3 months now. When I say serious I mean my diet has been great, i have been making sure i am getting my rest, and have been working on my lower body as much as upper (which you and everyone here im sure knows, lower body workouts gets overlooked by many people in the gym). I feel great, very strong and the biggest I have ever been, I just feel like upping my workouts to something more intense.. After doing a bunch of research I think I am going to start a HCT-12 journal and jump on the bandwagon next week. Currently I am 6', 235, and approx. 14-16% BF. I NEVER was able to get close to 230, and now that I am getting tremendous results, I am addicted to training.. The new goal is 240, 10-12% BF.. idk, we'll see.
