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 did change my routine again...

    I have gone to a push/pull routine like this...

    Tues/Sat: Pull (Curls - Bis & Legs, Lats, Rows, Chins, Abs)

    Thurs/Sun: Push (Bench, Flys, Shoulder Press, Tricep exercises, leg extension)

    Go ahead, tell me I am overtraining!

    2 Month Results

    I have been working out for 2 months now and I must say that I am overall pleased with the results (I will post a picture soon)...

    I have increased my weight from 150 to 170 without putting on too much fat. I would like to keep bulking until the end of January (Maybe Feb. depending on how much more weight I gain). After that, I plan to implement a cutting routine to take off about 5% body fat.

    I am also reposting my bio here since the original was deleted...

    Goals: By the end of 2002 I would like to be 180 - 190 pounds with 10% body fat.

    Background: Last lifted about 8 year ago but a shoulder injury kept me from reaching any potential. Severe illness this past summer made me decide to dedicate myself back to working out.

    36
    5'10"
    Starting Weight (11/1/01): 150
    Current Weight (1/2/02): 170

    Supplements: Myoplex Mass, ZMA, Creatine
    Diet: 3000 cals, 150+ protein grams

    Workout Routine:
    Push/Pull split 3 times/week

    therhoads, good to hear you're making progress. What you're doing isn't necessarily overtraining. What are you doing for legs on pull day? Is there any way you can lift every other day so that you're not lifting on Saturday and Sunday?

    Routine

    Thanks Doc,

    I have slightly modified my workout since my original post. I now workout Tues, Thurs, and Sun. I alternate push and pull so some weeks I end up doing pull 2x per week and sometimes push 2x per week.

    Legs on pull day is just hamstring curls. On push day it is Leg extension and calf raises.
