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?

    Is it time for me to move to the WBB Routine #2?

    I've been on the WBB Routine #1 for 3 months now.. and the past 2 weeks or so my progress on things haven't been that great of an increase. Like my bench, it seems like I've been at only 7 reps on the bench at 135 the past couple of weeks. And I dunno.. is it time for me to move on to something new?

    I've seen pretty good results so far.. it's just that I wasted a lot of time doing things without good form.. and not doing enough of sets. Because the Routine only said 2 sets. I'm doing almost 3 sets of everything. The 1st 2 being somewhat of a warm-up but still heavy weight.

    My bench would be like

    95 x8
    115 x8
    135 xhow ever many I can do.

    and same with squats

    205 x8
    225 x8
    245 xhow ever many I can do.

    So anyways.. back on topic. Should I move onto Routine #2? And I gotta keep track of my progress this time.. 'cause I'm completely lost and forget how much I lift every week. I do have a journal but my computer is broken. So it's rare that I'll get to post here.

    I'd give it a bit more time (2 more weeks maybe). If you still don't progress, than yes try WBB #2.

    you've only been with the routine for 3 months, you might have just hit a plataeu. I'd give it another month atleast. If you have gained some weightm, and still eating the same cals, you might need to up your cals to stay witht he body to grow and get stronger.

    I never liked the WBB programs at all. I think it's really best to make your own program that fits your own individual needs

    the program is not set in stone, its a good program for begginers who dont know how to begin designging their own routines.

    As said above, routines aren't set in stone. I've been doing WBB1 for over two years, I change things once in a while, but usually come back to the basics. Just keep at it, 3 months is nothing (after newbie gains anyway).
