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?

    Upper Leg Routine

    I'm currently having good results with my leg routine but I'm wondering if they could be better. On leg day I hit my quads and hammies. Calves are on a different day. Here's the current routine:


    5-10 minutes on the stationary bike to warm the legs.

    Squats: 1 warm up set. 3 sets of 6
    Leg Ext: 3 sets of 8

    SLDL: 3 sets of 6
    Laying Curls: 3 sets of 8

    Like I said I've been getting great results with this routine but I'm wondering if adding another compound exercise would push me that much further. I definately want to keep the 4 exercises I've got. I only want to add if the general concensus feels it's not enough volume. And I do deads already but I've got them on back day. And that's where they're staying

    So what do you guys think. Thanks.
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    If you want to add something else, do walking lunges at the end. If you aren't fried by then, you need to add some weight.

    I say keep it as it is, why mess with what's working. I found that once I lightened my leg load, my legs exploded in size. All I do are squats and SLDL's, I used to do Squats, extensions, sldls, leg press and hammy curls. So atleast for me, less sets helped ALOT.
    Height-5' 7"
    Chest-46"
    Biceps-17"
    Waist-28"
    Squat- 360x8 DB Curl- 70x6

    warming up on a stationary bike aint enough man, do some other low weight squat sets

    and leg extensions are bad for ye old kneed, try front squats littke awkward in the beginning but you will love them once you get used to them
    Under fullmoons waxing lyrically
    Death's poetry floods the soul
    Like the recking weed of a demon freed
    To curse the star with vertigo
    And in their dance, in trance I prise wide
    Slick rifts twixt obsidian thighs
    Hymeneal gates to other sides
    A labyrinth wherein Midian hides

    I'm with HY, walking lunges for life!! They will DESTROY your legs lol. I prefer dumbells, more fun. They work your glutes pretty hard, legs too, and grip if the dumbells are heavy. They also work your calves a bit too. You can expect assdoms for sure I'd say if you start them hehe.

    Do them at the end
