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?

    Time for a routine change

    Allright all

    This newbie is going to get on the wannabebig workouts and start with the first routine with a couple additional exercises to hit my weak points.

    Up until this point I've been working out 5 days a week for about two hours a day. I've seen huge gains (as in 10 pounds in 3 weeks) doing this but I hit a plateau so I think that's due to overtraining.

    As it stands right now, I don't really have any recorded stats, telling me I'm not doing a good enough job of pushing my envelope by lifting heavy enough, so hopefully soon I'll have them. Maybe this week I'll train for max's. I do have a bench max which is a somewhat respectable 225, but that was after at the end of a major 5 set series and without a spot.

    I'll keep y'all posted, and we'll see if you're little intensity over volume theory works.

    Focus on progression.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    By this I mean for this week's training days I'm going to go for maxes to see where I'm at so I can start to get an idea about how heavy to do all the exercises in my routine. As it is I ten to go too light, so that will give me an indicatoin about how strong I am because I tend to underestimate.
