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?

    Routine...

    Am I overtraining? I get soreness in my chest and back, a bit in my tris and almost none in my bis. Legs and shoulders are good too....

    The thing is, on my arm day, i love the pump i get in my tris and bis, but i dont get alot soreness in my arms the day after. On the day of, after the workout, my arms are pretty stiff and I cant extend or bend em (in a good way) so I love it, but no soreness....Think im over training?

    Routine:
    Monday -> Chest/Back
    Flat DB Press 3x8
    Incline DB Press 3x8
    Pec Deck 3x8 (should I just do normal DB flys?)

    wide-grip pullups 3x8 (might change to bent over rows)
    Seated rows 3x8
    Sitting Pull Downs 3x8 (tried Deadlifts for first time last week)

    Wednesday -> Arms
    Weighted Dips 3x8
    Close-Grip BP 3x8
    Skull Crusher 3x8

    Chinups 3x8
    Standing BB Curls 3x8
    Preacher Curls 3x8

    Friday -> Legs/Shoulders/Traps
    Squats 3x8
    Leg Presses 3x8
    Weighted Lunges 3x8

    Arnold Press 3x8
    Lateral Raises 3x8
    Military Press 3x8

    Shurgs 3x8

    I seem to be increasing weight for chest and tris the most. legs and shoulders r good. Back is a bit more slow and same with bis. I wanna change it up cause thats what ive been doing for the last 6 months, plus the fact that I dont get sore makes me think i need to switch it up. I think that the slow growth of back/bi has some correllation??? What do you think?

    I'm thinking of doing a chest/tri, back/bi, legs/shoulders split, but the only thing turning me away is the fact that I would need a spotter, but im willing to do that if you guys suggest.

    You're under training your posterior chain (especially) and legs.

    If I were to start from scratch as a young 13 year old again, I would do every press, squat, and perhaps deadlifts, for my entire career with chains. -- Dan John

    You doing as much for your legs (50% of your muscle groups) than you are for your biceps (5% of your muscle groups). See the problem?
