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?

    Critique my new workout routine for size and strength!

    Hello,

    I just wanted to hear your take on my new workout routine that I designed. It's kinda like phat but with no speed work and a little bit different lay out. There you go guys :

    - Tuesday : Upper Body "Strength"
    Bench Press 5x4-6
    Pull Ups 5x4-6
    DB Shoulder Press 4x6-8
    Supported Rows 4x6-8
    Olympic Barbell Curls 3x8-10
    Laying EZ Skullcrushers 3x8-10

    - Wednesday : Lower Body "Strength"
    Squats 5x4-6
    Deadlifts 5x4-6 "Ramp-Ups"
    Walking Lunges 4x6-8
    Calf Raises 4x6-8

    - Thursday : Active Rest
    Walking, Yoga, Foam Rolling, and Stretch

    - Friday : Pull "Hypertrophy"
    Reverse BB Rows 4x6-10
    One Arm Rows 3x8-12
    Face Pulls 2x12-15
    Machine High Rows 4x6-10
    Lat Pull Downs 3x8-12
    Pull Overs 2x12-15
    BB Curls 4x6-10
    Incline Curls 3x8-12
    Cable Preacher Curls 2x12-15

    - Saturday : Push "Hypertrophy"
    Incline Bench Press 4x6-10
    DB Bench Press 3x8-12
    Crossovers 2x12-15
    Shoulder Press 4x6-10
    DB Lateral Raises 3x8-12
    Cable Lateral Raises 2x12-15
    Overhead DB Extensions 4x6-10
    Weighted Bench Dips 3x8-12

    Front Squats 4x6-12
    Leg Extensions 3x8-12
    Stiff-Leg Deadlifts 4x6-12
    Leg Curls 3x8-12
    1-Leg Calf Raises 4x6-12
    Seated Calf Raises 3x8-12

    - Monday : Active Rest

    I'm not beginner. I'm more like an intermediate lifter. My 5RM for my big 3 lifts are : bench 205lbx5, squat 255lbx5, dead 365lbx5. Your feedbacks/criticisms are appreciated.

    Thanks,

    It's a little all over the place but if that's what you'd want to do I'd at least move your Legs Hypertrophy day to Saturday to break up your upper body training as well as giving your legs an extra day between your bodybuilding day and strength day.

    There are better options out there but do what ya want player. You are very much a beginner though
    Weakest person on the forum, and my bench is higher than my squat.

    Well, I have been doing full body workout for the past 6 months. I just wanted to do something new/fun because I got bored of full body workout tbh.

    Haven't seen one of these in awhile. Cut out some of the movements and decrease your volume with that frequency, unless you are on the sauce. Which I hope your aren't yet with those numbers. Which is not meant to be an insult, it just is what it is.

    Thanks you everyone. I decided to do Ice Cream Fitness 5x5. I will do it until I can bench 225lb x 5, squat 315lb x 5, deadlifts 405lb x 5. Hopefully, in 6 weeks I'll be able to hit those numbers then I will switch to my routine.

    I think ICF5x5 is a much better choice. Mobility work and light cardio on tue and thur and eat a ton and you'll see some nasty gains.
