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?

    Best 3 day workout routine?

    Hello experts

    I've been working out hard for about 5 years and currently at 190 (6ft tall) and weighed 140 first starting out. I feel like I've really hit a plateau but am so used to my go to routine it's been really hard to do anything else.

    This had been my routine for most of those 5 years:

    Tues:
    Bb chest
    Inc db chest
    Either seated wide or close row or 1 arm rows
    Tris either skulls or cable pull down
    Bb shrugs

    Thurs:
    Deads
    Military press
    Db lateral raise
    Front raise
    Ez or db curls

    Sat:
    Squats
    Inc bb chest
    Dips
    Rows
    Db shrugs

    I would do more volume and lighter weights interspersed throughout a month for variety and so I'm not going heavy all the time. I would then invert the days and do shoulders twice in the week and chest once then reverse again.

    Now is this routine any better than a push/pull/legs routine like:

    Tues (push):
    Bb chest
    Db inc chest
    Military
    Db lateral raises
    Tricep exercise

    Thurs (pull):
    Deads
    Rows
    Curls
    Shrugs

    Sat (legs):
    Squats
    Leg extensions calf raises
    Maybe lunges

    Any advice or critiques? Should I just stick with my original routine but just try to add weight and progress?
