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?

    I think volume for bis, tris and shoulders is a bit high... You train tris with 9 sets and legs with 12 work sets, it's a bit misporportionate. if i were you, I'd do 2-3 sets for bis, 3-4 for tris, and 3-4 for delts as well. It's so easy to overtrain those muscles.
    Other than that, your routine looks very good. Best of luck!

    This is the only way I feel a work out, and my leg split is all quads hams and calfs together. And my bi tris and shoulder all include a warm up. So actually the heavy weight worth mentioning is only 2 to 3 sets. I dont no if I ever experienced over training but I seem to improve natrually as long as i stick to a routine. I have gone threw another spurt of fat loss also I dont no its weird but I also get improvements in my lifts about evrey 2 to 3 weeks. I honestlyu think I get just the rite amopunt of reps when I complete a workout and the next week ussually prooves it.
    but then again I asked for advice so thanks..
