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 was gonna ask where the deadlifts and squats were..but then I saw the first sentence. I didnt really look it over thoroughly, but maybe you could drop one of the calf raises?....Just do some standing ones and that should be enough.

    No wide grip pulling, focus on pressing.

    I would take out wide grip pulldowns and put bb rows before t bar rows, and substitute cable push-downs with seated overhead db extensions.
    And a wide grip pulldown or pullup puts your rotators in a bad position, where a wrong movement could cause a shoulder injury. It's not so much the pulling motion, but the wide grip that is more dangerous.

    How come you can SLDL, but you can't do regular DL's?

    I would do one vertical and one horizontal back move. I'd also go with one bicep excercise, if any, but I have never been too big on direct arm work. Go with two compound chest moves and one shoulder. For calves and triceps I'd go with one direct move. I would divide the workout into a 2-3 days per week split, hitting each excercise once per week.
