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?

    Limited Resources - Need a good routine.

    Well I've just started working out again however until Jan. 7 I have to work out in the 'gym' at my apartment complex. They have a treadmill, an inclined bench press machine, a siting military press machine, a lateral pull down machine, a leg extension machine, and a pair of fourty lbs. dumbells. All of these are in a fixed position so I can't adjust them. I also have a curling bar with 50 lbs. at my house.

    The goals I have are a long athletic muscle building. Not bulky but not like soccer player big. Like a swimmers build.
    I'm 18, 6'2, 210lbs so I think I got great potential to get there.

    Heres my routine in order:

    20 mins on the treadmill at a moderate speed (set at six if anyone knows what I'm talking about)
    15 pushups to warm up
    15 reps on the lateral pull down : 110 lbs
    10-13 reps on the inclined bench press : 170 lbs
    15 reps on the leg extension machine : 70 lbs
    10-13 reps on the siting military press : 90 lbs
    10-13 reps on the lateral pull down : 90 lbs
    10 reps on the inclined bench press : 150 lbs
    10-13 reps on the leg extension machine : 70 lbs
    10 reps on the siting military press : 70 lbs

    Then sometimes I'll curl the dumbells like 5 times just for the hell of it.

    Is this routine any good? Any suggestions on something to add in? I just don't wanna end up looking lop sided, you know...

    hmmm...........what is your "sitting military press machine" like. What I use is just a standard bench press rack. If that's what it is, do bench. If not, incline will work, just not as well as a regular bp w/ a incline afterwards. Also, if you have just a regular barbell, do deadlifts w/ it.
