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?

    I wont to become lean

    My goal is to become lean and defined with cuts ( I want a six-pack,
    and a nice chest), I would like to get down to 8% bodyfat. As you
    can see, my main objective is to lose bodyfat (become lean). I have listed my workout regimen below:

    and and 30 minutes of cardio in the morning. 1 hour of cardio in
    evening.

    Tuesday
    Chest: incline press, decline press, chest press, bench press, peck
    deck, and 30 minutes of cardio in the morning. 1 hour of cardio in
    evening.

    Wednesday
    Back: lateral pull-down, low row, dorsi flexor, behind the head pull-
    down, and 30 minutes of cardio in the morning. 1 hour of cardio in
    evening.

    Thursday
    Triceps: tricep dips (machine), tricep extension, tricep press-down,
    tricep kick-back, and 30 minutes of cardio in the morning. 1 hour
    of cardio in evening.

    Friday
    Shoulders: shoulder press, lateral raises with dumbbell, front
    raises with dumbbell, shrugs with dumbbell, and 30 minutes of
    cardio in the morning. 1 hour of cardio in evening.

    Saturday

    press, calf raises, cruches, ab machine, leg raises and 30 minutes

    The best programmed workouts in the world won't get what you're looking for. They'll supplement it, but won't get there. 80% of the battle takes place in the kitchen diet wise. Train like a beast eat like shit, you'll be pushing yourself further away from your goals. Get the diet locked in, get on a solid proven routine (I don't think an entire day devoted to triceps is necessary) and stick to the plan.

    Like these mates said, it's diet. Hence why most never reach an elite level. (But by no means can you not do it).
    Bench: 350
    Squat: 475
    Dead: 500

    First, Serge Nubret had an AMAZING physique, especially in "relaxed" poses like the one in your avatar.

    Next, the routine you have outlined is definitely not idea relative to your goals. You will be overtrained and it has an excess of cardio.

    What does your diet look like?

    Let me know and I can comment on it and recommend a better strength building program for you which will help you to achieve your goals.
