The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    linear progress again

    I am going to try straight linear progression again ala starting strength.
    I've tried in the past but was not as informed on nutrition as I am now.
    I'm trying the following as recommended by Kelly Baggett(obviously similar to SS):
    Session A:
    Squat 3 x 5
    Deadlift 1 x 5
    Bench press 3 x 5
    Pullup or chinup 3 x as many reps as possible (add load when you get an average of 10 per set)

    Session B:
    Bulgarian split squat 3 x 8
    Military press 3 x 5
    Pullup or chinup 3 x as many reps as possible (add load when you get an average of 10 per set)

    I might front squat and build numbers up in chinups first as pullups are very weak.
    I will start at the following for 5s:
    Fr Squat 70kg
    Bench 60kg
    Press 38kg
    Dead 110kg
    Are the following 1RMs realistic in 6-8 months:
    Fr Squat 100kg
    Bench 90kg
    Press 60g
    Dead 140kg

    Chins are at 7/6/6, I can only do 3 pullups.Should I just work chins first until I get 3by10, then alternate with pullups
    using multiple low rep sets(10by3).

    Simple answer, probably just eat more.
    I've always found nutrition the hardest.
    So as I've stated are my goals realistic?

    If you are able, I'd stick with back squat.
    Your goals are possible for the majority of the lifts.
    Make sure you start off light and well within your abilities.

    Eating more will make a big difference obviously. Getting good rest and not working too hard on the off days can also have an impact as you probably already know.
