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?

    Help me get stronger!

    Here's some background on me. I was not an athletic kid, I grew up in a garage and drag strip. I never played any sports, never cared to (still really don't). I was 300lbs about 8 years ago, I dieted and exercised down to 210. I realized that I really liked lifting and have been doing it regularly since then. I've been as lean as 190, I'm sitting at 220 right now. I'm 6'4, 35 years old and I am NOT blessed with good genetics.

    I have a piss poor bench, I pushed 315 the other day (I know it sucks, no need to tell me). I can deadlift 500 on a really good day, and squat 415. I'd be willing to bet I could squat a little more if I work on my form. I'd really like go get all of my lifts up. It'd be really awesome for me to push 350 on the bench. Can I get some suggestions as to programs that will help? I currently lift 5 days a week, I workout alone but in a gym. I really would appreciate a bit of direction, thank you
