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?

    chest and triceps

    Just wanted to know what you guys reckon to this routine. I havent trained for a few weeks and feel like ive lost a bit of strength so I want to get back to where i was asap.

    Incline dumbells 3 sets
    Dips 3 sets
    Bench press type machine 2 sets of 4(as many as possible wth 10 second descent) forced negatives, 1 set to failure.
    Decline close grip bench 3 sets
    tricep pushdowns 2 sets, 1 drop set
    Failure is a privelage reserved for those who do not try hard enough

    jock-
    Whatsup bro? Hehe I dont know how much I reckon but Ill letcha know what I think of this routine..

    Incline dumbells 3 sets
    Dips 3 sets
    Bench press type machine 2 sets of 4(as many as possible wth 10 second descent) forced negatives, 1 set to failure.
    Decline close grip bench 3 sets
    tricep pushdowns 2 sets, 1 drop set


    I would kinda change my order of exercises if I were you bro. Personally I would drop the inclines because theyre involve too much delts if you ask me and I wouldnt waste my time if I were you trying to hit your "upper pecs." Anyway weighted dips are a great exercise. I would go with flat bb presses not that bench press machine or whatever. Also stick to maybe 6-8 total sets for your chest and maybe 4-5 total sets for your tris. I would maybe go with lying ez-curl bar ext. for your triceps. Theyre excellent when it comes to developing your tris. Decline close-grip I am assuming is for your tris? Maybe try something like this...

    Flat BB Presses 3 sets
    Weighed Dips 3 sets
    Flat Flyes 2 sets
    Lying EZ-bar Ext. 2 sets
    Pressdowns 2 sets

    IMO you gotta throw decline bench press in there...i've always been a huge advocate of declines because they really isolate the chest and keep cheating to a minimum........although a lot of people don't do declines and have great results, so i guess its what works for you

    Agree with MonStar. I'm curious as to how you're doing your dips though, and why are they in with your chest routine? I mean, they will emphasize the tri or chest depending on how you do them, but most consider them a tri excercise.

    I'd do your chest stuff first, like MS said, 6-8 sets total. Then 4-6 for your tris. Go heavy, but keep your form.
