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?

    Opinions on my 2 Day split ?

    Ok here's the deal - I get great results with WBB#2 but currently my schedule only allows me to train twice a week. So i tried to create a routine with all the goodness of WBB#2 ,but in a 2 day workout:

    day 1 chest back triceps

    Flat bb bench 2 x 9 - 11
    Incline db bench 2 x 9 - 11
    Flat flyes 2 x 9 - 11
    db rows 2 x 9 - 11
    shoulder width grip chins (underhand grip) 2 x 9 - 11
    deadlifts (every 2nd week) 2 x 9 - 11
    dips 2 x 9 - 11
    incline skull crushers 2 x 9 - 11


    day 2 legs shoulders biceps
    squats 1 x 20
    leg curls 2 x 9
    leg extension 1 x 15
    calf raises 2 x 25
    overhead dbell press 2 x 9 - 11
    front raises side raises supersetted 2 x 9 - 11
    incline db curls 2 x 9 - 11
    hammer curls 2 x 9 - 11


    Any thoughts?

    I woud drip the dips or the flyes, and add shrugs on day 1.

    Other than that looks fine to me.
    Squats work better than supplements.

    Paul, If I drop the dips, will I still be doing enough tricep work?


    I kinda wanted two exercises which would hit the tris directly so I chucked them in, I was actually thinking of dropping the dips in favour of close grip bench.

    also, how important is it really that I hit my traps?

    I think you have plenty of tricep work.

    I think it's important to hit your traps - or do some other upper back pulling.
    Squats work better than supplements.

    you are working triceps indirectly with a lot of those other exercises. I think working anohter exercise for upper back (traps) would reap better results for you in the long run.

    I would suggest alternating every other week between incline and flat bench DB work, but only if you want to, its not a thing. In my own pinion, I feel you get more mass from working DB's for chest.
