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?

    NEw Training program

    I have been traveling for the last couple of months. I am just getting back together with a couple of buddies who I work out with every time I get back to the Twin Cities. I have been trying to get them interested in some new routines. thought I would ask if anyone has any advice on what a good new routine would be.

    Here is our current routine.

    3 times a week alternating between push and pull exersizes.

    Push Day
    Incline 3X10
    Decline 3X10
    Flat Bench 3X10
    Cable Crossovers 3X10

    Nosebreakers 3X10

    Military Press 3X10

    Pull Day
    Pulldown 3X10
    High Rows 3X10
    Low Rows 3X10
    Curls 3X10

    Abs Misc Exersizes Each Time
    Cardio 30 Min Each time

    With a few of us 10 rep work is about the only way we have worked out, with an average number of months working out being around 12 months for the group.
    There is no leg work. We are planning on adding leg work. I have been having some back issues and knee problems(Torn PCL), so I have been staying away from deep squats.

    What programs and routines would other people recommend.

    Seems like alot for chest. I like the WBB #1 routine. I do that for about 6-8 weeks and then switch it up with WBB #2 for 2-3 weeks, then back to WBB #1.

    Thanks sch08835/Saturday Fever.

    I appreciate your feedback. I was hoping to be able to tell these guys what you thought of their present routine and provide some reasons to change what we are doing.

    I liked what you said about the volume of chest exersizes and since Saturday Fever is recommending Westside I am guessing that he would recommend some maximal lifting in the lower rep range as a good change of pace.
