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?

    Help my tiny legs!

    My legs are growing but not very much. This is my current routine for legs. My diet is alot better during summer cus there is not school. Some feedback would be real nice.

    Day 2: Legs

    1. Squats 1x20
    2. Leg Press 3x8,5,3
    3. Hamstring Curl 3x8,5,3
    4. Calf Raises 2x25
    Milk is the best Supplement

    Well my friends think I'm ugly
    I got a masculine face - Tom Waits.

    Hey Rocket,
    Its good to see your doing squats but why 1 set? If i were you i'd change it around to this..

    start with calves because at the end they're quite fatigued.

    Calve Raises 3X15
    Squats: 3X6/8
    Press: 2X6/8
    Extensions and Leg Curls: 2X6/8

    ...you might want to try doing straight leg dead lifts instead of leg press for a while , see how you progress
    "a nice (addition)

    Or mix up your squat a bit. One day do 4 sets of 3 at a very heavy weight and lots of rest between sets. On another day do 5 sets of 5 with very little rest between sets. Or throw on a lighter weight and hold the weight at the bottom of your ROM for 5 seconds before exploding up. The throw in a day where you do a long set of 20.

    Or you could use my belief for awhile, and do only squats for your leg day for a while, and constantly mix up what kinds of sets you're doing. Something like this:
    1x3
    1x? (hold for 5 seconds at the bottom)
    1x20
    2x5 (very little rest between these sets)
    1x6-8
    1x? (hold again)
    2x3 (rest well)
    1x1 (max out)
    1x20
    1x6-8

    I doubt you'll get quite that far into it, but the idea is to mix up your squats until your legs are dead. Don't worry about extensions or ham curls, try variable squats like above until you literally cant get off the floor.
