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?

    You're getting too creative and have too many sets in my opinion. I would get rid of the upright rows but if not just have them on one day.

    I would change the order and do back/bi, chest/tri make sure you do chest first,legs,shoulders
    with rest days on day 2 adn where ever else you feel a need to rest
    then doing the upright rows you would have more recovery time and you could possibly throw in shoulders with leg day if your short on time

    this is complicated. what are u doing for shoulders? im new to building my body . i been working out for about a month now and ive seen some results but i want my shoulders to be strong too.

    Weighted crunch 4 sets of as many as possible
    Twisting weighted crunch 4 sets of as many as possible
    thats a lot. i think you should set a defined goal. i mean 4 sets of 'x' crunches is not a visible goal. personally i think setting a reachable number likes 6-10 on max weight. and if u wanna push urself to 15 knock urself out... but then again im looking to for a medium build look
