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?

    Looks fine.

    I woul ddo big muscle groups first.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
    "You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial
    I has a blog.
    I has a facebook.

    You've got alot of redundancy in your workouts. Not enough direct shoulder work in my opinion. No squats! You make me want to cry. Kidding its okay to stick to machines for awhile when new, but after a few months learn to use free weights.

    Also you are trying to bulk up-don't forget to eat, eat till you are full, and then eat some more. Once you finish eating, eat again and follow that up with a snack before you have another meal.
    Check out the diet and nutrition forums for some pointers. Eat while you are reading that. As a matter of fact if you're not eating right now go get something to eat. Dang, now I'm hungry.

    Don't forget to set specific goals with deadlines. It helps a ton and is something that alot of people forget to do.

    Welcome aboard newbie.
