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?

    Routine question

    Here's my plan. I just got me a gym membership and I'm gonna work out 3 days on 1 day off and repeat. I've only worked out my chest day but here's what I figured out. Help me out with the order and removal and adding of excercises:

    Chest/Tricep

    Flat Barbell Bench Press : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Flies: 3x8
    Dips : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Low Incline Barbell Press : 2 x 6-8 reps



    Narrow Grip bench Press : 2 x 6-8
    Barbell Extensions: 2x6-8
    Cable Press Downs 2 x 6, 10


    I also have a diet question. I plan on eating 2500+ calories a day. What's a good number to start at and see what happens? I'm at 9.6% bf atm and about 150 if it matters. Also, what should I eat before and after a workout? I know after I'm supposed to eat plenty of protein and carbs, but can someone help me out here? Sorry, I know these questions are asked about 20 times a day. Also, what warming up should i do? I'll do some stretching but should i like jog for a bit or something? I'm really looking to SERIOUSLY get into lifting, and I have alot of spare time on my hands. Let me know about stuff and whatnot.

    You could possibly drop the flies from chest just focus on compound lifts... as far as diet goes try eating at 2500 calories and adjust from there, if you arent gaining add an additional 200 calories or so until you are.

    Click onthe link in my sig, and read.

    THEN set up your routine.
    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
