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?

    My new routine - CRITIQUE IT

    I changed my old routine a little bit, and combined shoulder day with bicep day. I also made a few other adjustments, since I have a gym membership now, and have access to a lot more equipment. How does this routine look? Please critique it, tell me what I need to change about it.

    DAY 1: chest, triceps
    DAY 2: legs
    DAY 3: OFF (abs)
    DAY 4: shoulders, biceps, forearms
    DAY 5: back, traps
    DAY 6: OFF (abs)
    --start over--

    This are the exercises I use (in this order).

    Day 1
    CHEST:
    1) bench press (4 sets)
    2) incline Bench press (4 sets)
    3) level dumbell flyes (6 sets)

    TRICEPS:
    1) close-grip bench press (4 sets)
    2) triceps machine pressdown (4 sets)
    3) dumbell kickbacks (4 sets)
    4) dumbell overhead extension (3 sets)

    Day 2
    LEGS:
    1) squats (4 sets)
    2) seated leg press (3 sets)
    3) leg extensions (4 sets)
    4) leg curls (4 sets)
    5) calve raises (4 sets)

    Day 3
    HIIT CARDIO followed by:

    ABS:
    1) reverse crunches (2 sets)
    2) crunches (2 sets)
    3) side crunches (2 sets per side)

    Day 4
    SHOULDERS:
    1) arnold presses (3 sets)
    2) front raises (3 sets)
    3) lateral raises (3 sets)
    4) barbell upright rows (3 sets)
    5) bent-over lateral raises (4 sets)

    BICEPS:
    1) concentration curls (3 sets per arm)
    2) standing barbell curls (4 sets)
    3) preacher curls (4 sets)
    4) hammer curls (4 sets)

    FOREARMS:
    1) reverse wrist curls (4 sets)
    2) behind-the-back wrist curls (4 sets)
    3) hammer wrist curls (3 sets)

    Day 5
    TRAPS:
    1) barbell shrugs (4 sets)
    2) behind-the-back barbell shrugs (4 sets)

    BACK:
    1) pullups (3 sets)
    2) machine pulldowns (6 sets {alternate between in front and behind})
    3) bent-over barbell rows (5 sets)
    4) cable rows (4 sets)

    Day 6
    SAME AS DAY 3

    This is my routine. I usually workout around 5:00 PM, and do cardio on my days off around the same time as I would do my workout. I do abs probably about 20-30 minutes after my cardio session. Any suggestions on how I could improve my routine (any exercises need to be switched around, days switched around, anything). If there's anything wrong with this routine, please tell me. Thanks.
