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?

    fairly new to weightliftin...need advice

    i have been workin out for about 2 months like 4 days a week. i have been eatin anythin with high calories/protein with low sugar. i dont know what my body fat is right now but i weight in at around 195-200. i am also 6'1. my current routine is as follows:

    day 1
    chest exercise 1: 3 warm-up x 8, 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4
    chest exercise 2: 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4
    back exercise 1: 3 warm-up x 8, 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4
    back exercise 2: 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4

    day 2
    leg exercise 1: 3 warm-up x 8, 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4
    leg exercise 2: 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4
    shoulder exercise 1: 3 warm-up x 8, 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4
    shoulder exercise 2: 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4

    day 3
    tricep exercise 1: 3 warm-up x 8, 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4
    tricep exercise 2: 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4
    bicep exercise 1: 3 warm-up x 8, 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4
    bicep exercise 2: 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4

    day 4
    leg exercise 1: 3 warm-up x 8, 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4
    leg exercise 2: 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4
    calf exercise 1: 3 warm-up x 8, 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4
    calf exercise 2: 1 heavy x 6, 1 more heavy x 4

    rest a day then repeat again with different exercises for each body part.

    i started this with my roommate because he said its what he used to "get big". i just need some suggestions as to if i should stay with this or try somethin else. my goal is to be around 16-20% BF and put on much more weight but still be able to no have a gut, if this is possible. i have a decent frame to start with since my chest, if measured correctly, is about 45" and i have a 36/38 waist which i would like to cut down to a 34. ive added some pics that could help.

    any and all responses are welcome.

    thanks and hello guys

    it seems to me that a gut is more of a posture/relaxation/ab thing than a product of bodyfat
    I've seen very lean guys (carl lewis for example) relaxing and having a gut...
    granted he was lean (<8% bf I'd guess) and you could see the 6 pack...but still it was a gut

    welcome to the boards. there is alot of great info on here. everyone will have their own workout routine that works best for them. mine is completely different than your but find that the program that you will be using is great. i have always heard that it would be best to lower the body fat with cardio and diet prior to building mass. i may stand corrected but that is why this board is so great.

    good luck with your program!

    1 week i will do a flat bench and flies for chest, seated rows and lat pulldowns for back, squats and calf raises for legs, preacher curls and hammer curls for bicep, pressdowns and skull crushers for tris, military press and lateral raises for shoulders, and shrugs for traps. all those would change the next time i do the body part again. this is a workout that my other roommate started me with cause it said it got him big so i have been on it for about a month and a half. i dont the muslce soreness too much after those. i was consifering starting the WWB1 routine.
