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?

    Variation of WWB#1...

    I have to change it a little due to the availability of equipment. Had to take out deadlifts, squats, hacksquats, and narrow grip bench press. Added a few exercises too...

    Day 1 : Chest and Back

    Chest

    Flat Barbell Bench Press : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Low Incline Dumbbell Press : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Dips : 2 x 6-8 reps

    Back

    Chin ups : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Barbell Rows : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Shrugs : 1 x 10 reps

    Day 2 : OFF

    Day 3 : Legs

    Leg Curls : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Leg Press :2 x 6-8
    Standing Calve Raises : 4 x 10 reps
    (Don't know the name of it: you lie down on your belly on a bench and lift your feet towards your butt. There is of course a place your legs go through and that connects to the weight) 2 x 6-8

    Day 4 : OFF

    Day 5 : Shoulders, Triceps and Biceps

    Shoulders

    Military Press in Rack (With 2 dumbells instead of barbell) : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Seated Dumbbell Press : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Standing Lateral Raises : 2 x 10 reps

    Triceps :
    (Don't know name: Stand against machine, pull down on rope with two balls on the end) 2 x 6-8
    French Press (With 2 dumbells instead of barbell) : 2 x 6-8 reps

    Biceps :

    Barbell Curls : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Hammer Curls : 1 x 6-8 reps

    Day 6 : OFF

    Day 7 : OFF

    Also I'm not seeing much of a difference in the military press and the seated dumbell press... any suggestions? For the Seated dumbell press I use a machine where you sit in a seat and push up on a bar, for the military press should I just use two dumbells since there is no readilly(sp?) available barbell?

    How are you doing the bench press?

    You can deadlift and squat with DBs if you don't have a bar.

    If you can't squat, add lunges to that leg day.

    I'm doing the bench press on a machine. You sit down and push forward. Seems to work I'm pretty sore right now.

    Sorry to but in on your thread, but how would I go about safely squatting with dumbells? I have a bench with sides that I can raise, but my room is very small, and I can't get behind my bench even if I did put them up.
