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?

    Weighted Dips - 5x5
    Seated Row - 3x8
    Flat Bench - 5x5

    I've been doing this routine for the last month (with the exception to lower body, just added lower body days) and I'd like to hear what you guys have to say about it. I haven't had any problems so far in terms of fatigue... But if there is something concerning about the routine then don't hold back. Only way I'll learn.

    My main priority is strength, which is why there are so many 5x5 rep schemes. I have 3x8 for some of them just because I think 5x5 for everything would be unnecessary. Let me know if I'm wrong, though. Or, more importantly, if it even matters haha.

    Looking forward to the advice. Thanks guys.

    Have you looked into the HCT-12 program? It will give you plenty of strength. As for your workout have you thought instead of seated shoulder press do standing and instead of seated rows do bent over rows.

    Actually, that thought did cross my mind and I've been thinking of switching. Those types of exercises are definitely more useful.

    Yeah I took some of the ideas from that program to make mine. Only briefly, though. I'll check it out again. Thanks!
