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?

    I've only been reading this forum for a few days and have realized I need a workout change. I've learned a lot from this site already, but have a lot more to learn. Anyways, i'm 22 yrs, 6' 205lbs, bf%(guessing)15-20. for the past year my workout has pretty much been one body part a day(mon-chest, tues-back, wed-shoulders, thurs-bi's & tri's, fri-legs). I'd like to try something new. I was thinking the 'wanna be big' routine or this one that chris mason suggested to ca_richard(but doing legs only once a week):

    Mon/Thurs

    bench press- 2 sets x 5/10
    dips- 2 sets x 10/10
    skull crushers- sets x 10/10
    squats- 2 sets x 8/15
    leg extension- 1 set x 10
    leg curl- 1 set x 10
    calf raise- 2 sets x 10/10

    Tues/Fri

    chins- 2 sets to failure
    rows (T-bar or on a machine with a support for the chest)-
    2 sets x 6/8
    v-bar pulldowns- 1 set x 10
    military press- 2 sets x 10/10
    straight-bar curl- 2 sets x 8/10
    shrugs- 2 sets x 10/10

    my cardio is an hour of kickboxing 3-4 days a week. I eat pretty well and putting on weight is not a problem for me. I just want that weight to be mostly muscle. Hopefully i have posted enuff info for you all so you could give me a lil advice. And any criticism is welcomed. Thanx in advance for any advice and keep up the good work everybody!

    I think both of those routines are great if you give them an honest try. If you are doing kickboxing 3-4 days per week, I would suggest only lifting max 3 times per week. You may even want to cut out a day of kickboxing. Rest is good!

    I like both routines...

    I am on the wannabebig routine now but am getting a bit bored of it...

    I am still gaining on it so when things slow up i am going to take a week off and try Chris's routine I think. I liked the look of it...

    Let me know how you get on with Chris's routine if you try it

    Thanx for the replies, LATMAN and Hulk! I am going to do my lifting on Mon, wed, frid and cardio on tues., thurs and maybe sat. I am pretty much going to do the wannabebig routine to start out with. It seems like it would suit me the best. I will start it tonight and am pretty excited, I really look for it to improve my workout a lot. I will be posting my results and may start a journal. I want to see my positive results written.

    Hulk: How long have you been on the WBB routine?

    Looks good. It is always a good idea to give your body complete rest from exercise at least one day a week. Good luck with it!
