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?

    quick leg routine advice

    I currently am doing

    3 sets of romanian deadlifts
    4 sets of hammie curls
    4 sets of hack squats
    4 sets of squats

    this works out well since I like DLing when I'm fresh and squatting after my quads have taken a beating. I'm just wondering if this is a good amount of volume? it only adds up to like 7-8 sets per muscle really. I was thinking of adding 3-4 sets of lunges maybe at the end to finish everything off but I'm not sure, is that too much volume? (also, I do calves by running hills just before anyone comments that they're missing).

    What rep range do you work in?

    I would say as long as you're not in the 8-12 range you're probably doing fine. Those 4 are great for a leg day.

    Looks OK to me.

    You may have to adjust occasionally.
    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
    "You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial
