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?

    Could some critique my routine?

    Well, to get started I'm 17 and my goals are to be a lean 205-210 pounds by the start of school next year. I have been just doing a workout from my football coach, but it is made for someone with very little time and just cover the very basic lifts like, Benc'h, Squat, Deadlift, etc... I am looking to get serious about my lifting. I am currtenly on a bulk with an intake of around 3500 calories. I am bulking until i hit 200 then being my cut. (7 more pounds) After treading varioues gudies and such i think i am doing fine with my eatting. All i need now is for someone to look over my routine. I combined the WWB #1 routine with some other exerices that i like doing. This is my first routine that i ever made before so i'm sorry if i really messed things up.

    I am doing the 5x5 insted of 2x6-8 or any other combations becuase i tend to like doing them more. Im not sure really yet its just more fun for me i guess if that makes any since.

    Also, another question, a freind of mine currently had to get a physcial from the nurse do the fact that they thought he was on juice. All he has been takening is a whey protein and creatine. The nurse told him that is was bad for him, and there are many health risks that are assoicated with creatine, but from what i have read that creatine has been proven in many test to be not harmful at all.

    I don't like pairing tris with chest, or bis with back.

    Have you read Baby Got Back? Split's all worked out at the end. You might like it.

    You're welcome!

    You may decide to drop the volume down a hair with the accessory work.

    Also, ditch wide-grip work for lats - shoulder width or narrower works them better, AND saves your rotator cuff. If you feel the need to do two different hand placements for lat pulldowns after chins, do close parallel grip, and close overhand grip if you did overhand for the pullups, or close underhand if you did overhand for the pullups.
