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?

    Need routine help (very limited equipment)

    I am traveling for work and the only gym I have access to is the one in my hotel. The only lifting equipment they have are dumbbells up to 50 lbs, an adjustable bench, leg curl and extension machine, and a cable machine where you can do tricep press downs and the like (no lat pull downs however).

    My goals are just to get in better shape, I have been lazy lately and put on a few extra lbs. I have no delusions of being able to make any major improvements with this equipment, I would kill for one bar and some plates but I have to make due with what I have.

    Any suggestions for a 3 day a week routine? They also have some cardio equipment that I will try to use some just to build some endurance (I hate cardio). I figure with the light weight I should stay in higher rep ranges but I am not sure what the best approach I should take is. I have always structured my routines around a bar and some plates so I am a bit out of my element.

    EDIT: SEE POST 3 FOR A ROUTINE ROUGH DRAFT

    Thanks in advance
