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?

    Compound movements...give me a real whoosh. Squats, deads, bench, I've also been interested in cleaning.

    I've really been thinking about my sticks, and since I cant get them to grow from hitting them directly, has anyone heard of indirectly training the arms through compound movements and the results thereof? I've got a lot of angst...sometimes I just feel like bursting out with every muscle in my body, not just two or four, you know? With a body as screwed up as mine, I dont think that isolation exercises are doing the trick.

    I have been giving serious thought to focusing on powerlifting moves; since I have been doing heavy deadlifts and upright rows, heavier squats, I leave the gym feeling like I've really done some good work. If I dont do these exercises, I really dont feel like I've done much. Could someone suggest a routine for me based around these compound movements?
