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?

    Can I get some feedback on my new routine, Im worried it might be overtraining.

    I know there are a bunch of routine threads now, but I would appreciate it you all could take a look at mine. I was doing a push/pull/legs, but my gains have began to slow as of late. Im 17, 5'10'', 175lbs, and have been lifting for about 5-6 months BTW. Diet and rest are both solid. Im currently bulking and my main goal is SIZE. It is basically a modificaton of a push/pull legs.

    Day1: Chest/tri's
    Flat B-bell bench press...2 working sets
    Decline B-bell...2 sets
    Flyes...3 sets
    Skullcrushers...2 sets
    Close grips...2 sets (I superset these two every third workout)

    day2: off

    Day3: Deads/shoulders/Traps
    Deads...2 sets
    Millitary Press....3 sets
    DB shoulder press...2 sets
    lat raises...2 sets
    shrugs....3 sets

    day4: off

    Day5: Back/Biceps
    Wide grip chins...3 sets
    Bentover DB rows...3 sets
    Lying DB rows...2 sets
    Incline DB curls...2 sets
    Preacher curls...2 sets

    Day6 Legs
    Squats...2 sets
    SLDL....2 sets (is this too much for lower back 2 days after deads?)
    Leg curls...3 sets
    STanding calf raises...3 sets

    Day7off...then start over again on Day8

    Any feedback would be great.

    Thanks

    lying DB row?

    chose one vertical and one horizontal row.

    No need for two presses for delts.

    I'd recommend just droping conventiona deads and keeping SLDL's and dropping the leg curls.

    Can you do any form of leg press or hack machine? if not, then maybe up squat sets to 3 - maybe 4.

    the rest looks ok. I see you chose flyes over dips

    Yeah, im going to go with the flys for a while, I might switch to dips later.

    I workout at home. I have an olympic and squat rack, but no leg press or hack machine until I go to college this fall.

    If I drop deads and a shoulder press, what would you reccomend I do on day 3? I dont see shoulders and traps taking any longer than 30-35 min, I could throw in abs on that day (I forgot to post it, but I train abs 2x a week in there).

    Would it be okay to have a day where I workout 35-40 min? I woud like to keep a 4 day split, rather than throwing in shoulders with chest/tri's. When I did do shoulders on chest/tri day, I really feel like my tricep workouts went rather shitty, not to mention shrugs at the end.

    30 minute training sessions = ace.

    generally, try not to take longer than an hour.

    Where do you shrug?
