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?

    Need help with strength routine...

    Here's the deal:

    I'd like to concentrate on improvements on the big three lifts: bench, deadlift, and squat. I wouldnt mind doing westside stuff but I think westside doesnt concentrate enough on full ROM movements because they use suits and/or shirts. My lifts are raw and I want to keep them that way (dont plan on using suits/shirts or the like). I've been using a push/pull/legs type of routine and made some gains off of that, but now I'd like something more focused on strength.

    About my lifts:

    My bench is 160 (yeah blows) and my weakness on the lift is definitely towards the bottom. Directly off chest it goes up and then a couple inches higher just stalls. If I get the bar halfway up, I always lockout.

    My deadlift is at 300. Just like my bench, my lockout is strong. The bar moves very slowly off the ground. If I miss a lift its either at the bottom or an inch or two off of the ground.

    My best squat was 240, but I wore pants that got tight around my legs and ass on the way down which probably helped me get out of the hole (like a suit I guess). But there was plenty of depth on the way down. Just like my other two lifts, I have trouble getting out of hole.

    I need help coming up with a routine that works around these lifts and focuses around my specific weaknesses. Thanks in advance.
