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?

    umm, upper body work looks like an overload.

    do you squat?

    i'm not a fan of tricep kickbacks*bleh*

    i'm just wondering why you have so much going for chest?

    if this was my routine example: arms/shoulders

    military press
    bo lat raises
    through in some weighted dips, that's just me, i work with little but accomplish alot with 5x5 set/rep range

    i think you should lower the volume... remove exercises such as tricep kickbacks, shrugs, decline bench press... you do not need so many exercises for a muscle group...

    you should definitely add in squats

    Height: 5'7"
    Weight: 175lbs
    Body Fat around 12%
    Biceps: 14.5"
    Chest: 38"

    Bench Press: 225 x 10 reps and 275 pounds x 1 rep
    Deadlift: 405 pounds x 1 rep
    Squat: 335 pounds x 3 reps

    for upper body,

    you can keep your dumbbell lateral raises and maybe add in arnold press or military press (these two for shoulders)....

    for biceps, you can do chinups (great exercise) and even some kind of curls if u want...

    for triceps, you should definitely do weighted dips plus one of the below:
    either skull crushers or close grip bench press...

    hope this helps
