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?

    five times a week?

    hi right now im lifting pretty heavy monday through friday, and with the weekends off. Can someone tell me if this looks good as a routine to follow? im currently bulking, and i want strength as well as size. lemme know what you guys and girls think
    Monday - Back
    Tuesday - Shoulders/traps
    Wednesday - Chest
    Thursday - Biceps/Triceps
    Friday - Legs

    The exercises are basically the same ones covered in WBB #1, mon/wed/fri i dead/bench/squat, respectively.. i am just curious as to whether this is a good routine for five times a week or if anyone might know of a better one.. Thanks

    Its fine.

    I'd separate some stuff a little more, like this:


    That way, you aren't pushing 2 days in a row.
    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.

    i can work with that, i really should have mentioned that i play soccer every wednesday, which is the main reason i had them seperated like that in the first place.. so legs i probably couldnt do wednesday, though i suppose i could switch it with back day.. running still can toll your lower back after a heavy deadlifting day though, so who knows.. i can give it a shot
