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?

    How would this look for a fullbody routine?

    Monday
    3x Squat
    3x Deadlift
    3x Bench BB
    3x DB Shoulder Press
    3x Chins
    3x BB Rows

    Wednesday
    3x Leg Press
    3x Deadlift
    3x Incline Bench DB
    3x Arnold Press
    3x Pull-Ups
    3x Cable Row

    Friday
    3x Squat
    3x Deadlift
    3x Decline Bench BB
    3x BB Shoulder Press
    3x Pull-Downs
    3x DB Row

    Ive always like to switch up my workouts each time so I was trying to incorporate that in a fullbody routine. Hows it look?

    I would do something more like this:

    Monday
    -Squat
    -Standing Calf Raises
    -Incline BB Bench Press
    -Dips
    -Chinups
    -BB Rows

    Wednesday
    -Leg Press
    -Seated Calf Raises
    -Flat DB Bench Press
    -Arnold Press
    -Pullups
    -DB Rows

    Friday
    -Deadlift
    -Donkey Calf Raises
    -Decline BB Bench Press
    -Military BB Press
    -Neutral Grip Pullups
    -T-Bar Rows

    Basically the main thing is try to separate squats and deads because they both exert so much energy from you.

    Maybe alternate between deads, RDLs/SLDLs and rack pulls to give some variety to your deadlifts, maybe alternate between squats and split squats ...

    squats and deads on the same day is not a very good combination IMO...

    Crossfit Total: Press: 135 - Squat: 315 - Deadlift: 365

    Do alot of people do Calf work in fullbody routines? I was just trying to get my sets below 20 per day

    And why is a shoulder movment missing on Monday?

    You don't have to do calf work if you don't want to. You can sub it out for some leg curls, good mornings, and leg curls if you choose to. It's really a matter of preference. Some choose to do a purely-compound full-body routine where others choose to add in some isolation too. And a shoulder exercise is not missing on Monday. Incline BB Bench Press works your shoulders.

    The original post is nearly perfect. I would remove the leg press and put in front squats or split squats or something, and replace the deads on a couple of days with RDL or SLDL.

    Other than that, it is very close to what I would suggest. I would add in some calf raises, shrugs, abs, etc at the end of workouts (ie on monday do shrugs, on weds do calf raises, etc.)
    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
    I has a blog.
    I has a facebook.

    I was ganan do shrugs at the top of my DL's. How many times should i do calf raises?

    Also the only thing im worried about with this routine would be over training. Ill be doing like double the rows and a few others.

    Can someone hows done one of these routines give me some piece of mind?
