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 this for a routine??

    I will be ending my current routine in just a few short weeks, and I'm trying to make a new one. I know different workouts work for different people. But how does this look?

    Day One: Chest, Shoulders
    Bench-3x4, Incline Bench-2x10, Military 2x10, Upright Rows 2x10, Incline
    Shoulder Raises-2x10

    Day Two:Cardio

    Day Three: Legs
    Squats-3x4, Deadlifts-3x4, Leg extensions-3x10, Leg curls-3x10

    Day Four:Cardio

    Day Five:Back, Arms
    Bent-Over Rows-2x10, Lat Pulldowns-2x10, Tricep Extensions-2x10, Hammer
    Curls-2x10, Close Grip Bench-3x10

    Day Six-Rest w/ stomach work
    Day Seven-Rest w/ stomach work

    This is supposed to be a cutting workout. Any additions or suggested changes will be greatly appreciated.

    It seems like I do that workout about 3 times per week!

    It would probably help to know what your level of conditioning as at this point. How long ya been training? How tall? Weight? That kinda thing. What are you looking to achieve?

    I mean, it's real hard to critique a workout with nothing else to go by.

    Good call on needing the info. 6 foot, 160 pounds,about 15% bf, been really training for about 16 weeks, I'm not really looking for big mass, but a little size would be nice. Right at the moment I want to get rid of some pudge around my stomach. I forgot to add, I plan on doing some basic stomach work on the weekends, just like, sit-ups and stuff.

    I have officially decided that I want to lose fat to show a little more muscle. Especially around my stomach.

    I was just lookin at this routine again, and I was wondering if I would be overtraining my arms with this? My arms are where I am looking for growth the most, but I don't want to overtrain.

    I think it looks like a pretty safe routine. I wouldn't worry about overtraining. As far as getting rid of the fat in your midsection goes that's all in your diet

    it looks good, but why not add more reps to your bench, Squat, and deadlift.

    Bench 3x8 and I would drop the incline bench.

    Squats-3x8, Deadlifts-3x8,
