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?

    Progressive Overload

    Time for a new journal.
    I've stopped training to failure for a while due to possible cns burnout. I've also increased my volume a bit and decreased my time between sets. I'm going to cycle back into the high intensity low volume training in another month or so. I've found I can only handle training to failure for 5 or 6 weeks at a time before I start losing strength and motivation to train. I'm currently bulking and I'll probably stick with it until I feel too fat.

    The routine:
    Mon-chest/bi's
    bb flat bench
    bb inclinebench
    bb overhead press
    bb curls

    Tues-legs
    squats
    leg curls
    calf raises

    Fri-back/tri's
    chins(weighted if necessary)
    db rows
    skullcrushers

    OH press, bb curls, and skullcrushers are all 2 sets of 6-8 reps. All other lifts are 3 sets of 6-8 reps. My goal is to add weight or reps to my bench, squat, and chins each week. I plan on doing this forever I bought some of those little magnetic weights so I can make 2.5 lb increases instead of the much harder 5 lb increases.
