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?

    I lifted as a youth for a while but now am 62 yrs old and in great shape health wise. I am an ectomorph and need assistance. I am starting to lift has been so long I consider myself a beginner. I have just purchased an incline/decline bench...barbell and dumbbells with weights and want to hget started.

    I have been reading a lot on line regarding starting to lift. Some say split...some say full body 3 times a week with light weights to start and then increase as weeks go on.

    I am interested in gaining some weight..adding mass and definition.

    What type of weekly training schedule would be best for me? My doctor says I am certainly strong enough and healthy enough to lift

    ANY input would be appreciated. Obviously I want to get the most results from the time spent,

    Thank you for your time and assistance with this. I also plan to post in the nutrition forum if one exists so I can get the skinny on pre and post workout supplements

    In order...
    Bodyweight training - get basic strength and body awareness
    Full-body routine - more practice makes you stronger quicker
    Split routine - as volume and intensity grows your workouts become too long and taxing
    This is not set in stone but it's a pretty good way to go...
