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's the new routine looking?

    Any pointers, negatives about my rounting you can point out please, id be most grateful, im over the moon now iv found one (i hope!) I sat down with a pen and paper for over an hour trying to fix together one that's going to work..(hopfeully) i hate going to the gym without knowing exactly what im going to do. Anything about combinding other things with something else also i'd appreciate, need to try get it perfect for me

    I'v tried mixing it with doing two different types of chest workouts each week and doing the Chest, Shoulders, Back twice a week once every 3 weeks. Now im not sure about some of the exercise real names, espically for back the ones called 'triangle' 'width chest pull' 'neck pull' are all the ones you pull down one to the back of the neck one to the chest etc.

    Thanks again.

    I do 3-5 sets for each in a week. This is overkill - you'll train them away!

    mm my bad sorry, i pasted it from Excel and it didn't include the 'Optional' thing in brackets by arms,triceps and abs. I basically choose 2 exercises for both triceps and biceps so total 8 sets for biceps and 8 sets for triceps,(After chest and back workout) still to much?

    Regards.

    That's better. Might still be too much, but only you can say.

    You might consider doing bis after chest, tris after back.

    Hm, i was always told back with biceps which is what i did start with and i posted a few days ago about my back with biceps workout (arms basically dead after a back workout) My biceps felt like weak and pumped couldent really do much on sets and if i do biceps with chest then their not going to have time to recover when i come to do back the next day, pointers please ;p

    People usually have problems with training,lifting or gaining mines just bloody getting a routine to work.. :|

    If you do bis after back, they're already tired. Same with tris after chest.

    If you do bis after chest, it's more of a puch pull - that way, it's like your bis get two shorter, more intense workouts a week, rather than one big destruction one day a week. Same with chest and tris. Tris get a hit with chest anyway.

    Personally, I pair bis with quads, and tris with hamstrings.

    Read baby got back for more on this.
