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 was juet wondering if this routine is good for pro wrestling becase after I finish high school I am going to start training for a future in the sport?

    Day 1: Shoulders,Triceps,abs

    Dumbell military presses - 3x6-8 reps
    Dumbell side laterals - 3x8-10 reps
    Close-grip bench presses - 3x6-8 reps
    Tricep pushdowns - 3x6-8 reps
    Forward crunches - 3 sets to failure
    Lying leg raises - 3 sets to failure

    20-25 minutes of cardio

    Day 2: Back,Traps

    Lat Pulldowns - 3x6-8 reps
    T-Bar Rows - 3x6-8 reps
    1-arm Hammer machine rows - 3x6-8 reps
    Dumbell shrugs - 3-4x8-10 reps
    Hyperextensions - 3x10-12 reps

    20-25 minutes of cardio

    Day 3: Chest,Biceps

    Flat bench presses - 3x6-8 reps
    Incline dumbell presses - 3x6-8 reps
    Flat Flyes - 3x10 reps
    Barbell curls - 3x6-8 reps
    Hammer curls - 3x6-8 reps

    20-25 minutes of cardio

    Day 4: Legs

    Leg presses - 4x8-10 reps
    Leg extensions - 3x8-10 reps
    Stiff-leg deadlifts - 3x8-10 reps
    Leg curls - 3x8-10 reps
    Seated calf raises - 3x10-12 reps
    Leg press calf raises - 3x10-12 reps

    As you can see I do not do squats because when did them all they did was make my butt bigger,while Leg presses develope my thighs alot better and stronger. Also I eat a high protein, moderate to high carb, low fat diet while eating atleast 3,000 calories a day!

    I AM THAT DAMN GOOD!!!!!!!!!

    Just a thought of mine I'd like to share with your guys. I'm a big fan of only 2 WORKING set for each excersie. Meaning 1 warms up to start off then 2 6-12 rep sets. I would rather do 4 excersizes @ 2 sets each then to do3 excersizes for 3 sets each. You se what I'm getting at? Working the muscle from as many angles as possible? just a thought on your 3 set scheme.

    Also I would add either dbell or barbell rows in the begining of your back routine.

    also, you may want to start chest with incline, you will NEVER see a bodybuilder with an overly developed upper chest. Cut out the flies unless your huge and do some incline machine presses or flat machine presses.

    I don't see how some of you guys can train your whole legs in one day, ah screw it, here is my workout, lol.

    Anytime you see more then 2 sets per excersize it mean the first set is a warm up set, usually 30-50% of my max for 12-15 reps....

    All sets are done with a 6-12 rep range. the first is usally 10-12, the second is usually 6-8 reps.

    chest & calfs
    3 incline dbells
    2 incline machine presses
    2 flat machine presses
    2 cable flies
    3 seated calf raises
    2 standing calf raises
    2 other calf raises(whatever i feel like)

    Back & hams
    3 barbell or dbell rows
    2 hammer strength machine rows
    2 lat pull downs, either front wide or parallel grip
    3 sets of SLDL's
    3 sets of hamstring curls

    bi's and tri's
    3 dbell or barbell curls
    2 spider curls
    2 high pully cable curls(forgot the damn name)
    3 incline skull crushers
    2 v bar pull downs
    2 single or double overhead extentions
    2 cable single arm pull downs

    3 dbell presses
    2 lateral raises
    2 rear delt raises
    2 machine presses

    thursday off

    5-6 sets squats(usually finishing wiht a 20 rep set)
    2 leg extentions
    2 leg extentions (with a different machine)

    saturday off
