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?

    Proper way for 5 x 5

    I have heard of a few ways of doing a 5 x 5 routine (single factor)

    1. Do the same weight for all 5 sets. Once you can complete 5 sets of 5 reps with the same weight...move the weight up

    2. Vary the weights working up as you go along.
    Ex. Set 1 - 100, Set 2 - 125, Set 3 - 150, Set 4 - 175, Set 5- 200

    Which way is the proper way to do it? Can 5 x5 routines be used both ways?
