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?

    Here is My Workout after Reviewing The WBB ROUTINE

    I had a question, i looked over your guys' WBB routine #1 and not to criticize or anything. I thought it was rather lacking. I mean the amount of exercises and sets you are doing kinda look like a warmup. I mean i workout in my gym for around 1hr-1hr 30mins. and if i did your routine, it would take me about 15 minutes and i would be done. As i only allow myself 15-20 seconds in between sets, doing 4 sets of every exercise that i do. Heres my workout, let me know what you think.

    Rest Sat. and Sun.

    As i say again i dont want to criticise the WBB routines at all, i was just wanting to put my workout out there for people to see. It is a very intense workout as i said i only rest anywhere from 15-20 seconds. If i were to ever get on gear i would most undoubtedly even make my workout harder. Any comments would much be appreciated as we can all learn from one another thank you.

    Day 1 - pick three of those, and do them.

    Day 2 - pick 2 for each, (or 3, and reduce the number of sets)

    Day 3 - train your hamstrings.

    Day 4 - drop dips, lateral press, and add in a row. I owuld split this day up, and put shouders somewhere else. I'd also add a shrug

    Day 5 - drop it, unless you train EVERYTHING twice a week.

    I, of course, am assuming your goal is to get bigger. If it isn't, then keep the workout you've got.
    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

    Nobody has anything to say about this? How do you keep them strong without working them?

    If you could do WBB 1 routine in 20 minutes, your not useing much weight.

    Doing a ton of exercises isn't how you measure intensity. But I agree with the advice Paul gave.

    yeah you do a lot of sets and exercises cut back on that try rest longer between sets and work on increasing your wts. at 6ft you top out 200 plus easily

    Im doing WBB routine 1 and it takes me on average 50 minutes to do. Man, I wish I could do it in 20 with the current weights im lifting! I agree with berserker, up the weights and I can guarantee you will need to rest more than 15 seconds between sets!
