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?

    New Routine (needed)

    Been doing the same style of workouts for the last two-three years or so, with the exception of trying out HST and Westside. Now, I'm getting a little tired of the typical push/pull/legs or the legs/back & tri/chest & bi splits that I've been using.

    That said, any suggests on how else to design a split, or even some new exercises to include in a split so I have something different to liven life up again? Don't get me wrong, I enjoy doing the same exercises and going up in weight on them, but same time wearing down on it. Ideas? Oh, and goals would be both strength and size. Despite doing both HST and Westside, I don't like one without the other.

    Or should I just forget about routine for a month or so, go in there and lift?

    What about incorporating some oly lifts? Power cleans, jerk presses, snatches, more stuff along those lines. Something different that you can have fun with.
    What is elite?

    If you're bored, just go in and try new things, see what you like. Lifting shouldn't feel like a job.

    Nah, it doesn't feel like a job. Think my energy is just way to low lately, cause it's hard to get moving unless I've got something I need to get done.

    And started trying out a few of the olympic lifts, HomeYield, just not comfortable making a routine around them yet without someone to walk me through the steps. And I ain't seen anyone at the gym do a single one. Any videos/demonstration sites you know that'll teach the proper ways step by step?
