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?

    Need comments and or suggestions on new routine/diet

    I've been doing wbb1 routine 1 and have been pretty pleased with the results in terms of how my body's been shaping up, but I want to gain some more mass. I've been eating as much as I possibly can, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and then usually 2 smaller meals (a sandwich and an apple or some carrots) before bed, I eat dinner at 5. Since is this isn't the diet and nutrition forum, I'll keep my diet's description short, I eat fruit and or vegetables with every meal, I cut out every white grain, only whole grains, and just watch what I eat in terms of main dish (I'm on college so the selection is good, but not incredible.) Anyway, this week, and for the next 8 weeks I am trying to boost up my metabolism even more so I can consume more food, and gain at least 5-10 pounds. My schedule is as follows:

    Sunday: Rest
    Monday: Run 2 miles in in under 15 minutes, 2x crunchs, 2x leg raises, 2x per side on obliques, 3x lower back extensions.
    Tuesday: Run 2 miles in 16+ minutes, 3x bench, 3x leg press, 3x pullups, 3x calf raise, 3x seated rows.
    Wednesday: Same as Monday
    Thursday: Same as Tuesday
    Friday: Same as Monday
    Saturday: Same as Tuesday

    I run in the morning before class, and do my lifting at night- a couple hours after dinner. Any suggestions, tips, recommendations, critiques, comments, essays, responses, reactions, thoughts, feelings, are greatly appreciated.

    Starting Current
    Bench: 45 lbs Bench: 235 lbs
    Squat: 95 lbs Squat: 285 lbs
    Deadlift: 100 lbs Deadlift: 330 lbs

    You're lacking some very important exersises, and leaving out some muscle groups. WBB routine 1 is much better. Your diet doesn't consist of enough calories, unless you're really small, for the amount of cardio you're doing-if you want to gain mass that is.

    What are you stats?
