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?

    Push,Pull,Legs, Off Split

    Ok so im starting a push, pull, legs off,(repeat) split. Now ive read about over training so indeed i will have to be carefull not to put myself in that situation however i feel like this split might be very benificial at least for a 4-6week routine. The following is how i made it up so if anyone would like to critique it or offer construtive critisism please do. Oh yea, and link pasters need not go further.

    Day 1 - Push

    Incline Press - warm up x 20
    warm up x 10
    set 1
    set 2
    set 3
    set 4(dropset 50% of weight after set)

    Bench Press
    - set 1
    set 2
    set 3
    set 4(dropset)

    Parallel Bar Dips (weighted) set 1
    set 2
    set 3
    set 4(drop weight after set and to failure)

    Shoulders - overhead press(standing) set 1
    set 2
    set 3
    set 4(dropset)
    Bent-Over Laterals - set 1
    set 2
    set 3

    side laterals(standing) - set 1
    set 2
    set 3

    Tri's- Close grip bench press - Set 1
    set 2
    set 3
    set 4(dropset)

    cable pushdowns with arm blaster - set 1
    set 2
    set 3

    dumbell skull crushers - set 1
    set 2
    set 3

    Ok after realizing how long this would be if i did this for all three days im gona post this take feedback and then post the next day and so on. Now to explain myself on how i put this workout together. First off sets,basic exercises i do 4 and if the exercise is isolation i cut the sets down to 3. I do dropsets be because that is what im using to shock my muscles for this cycle, next cycle might be forced negatives or partial reps what ever. I do standing overhead press because i like to keep overhead press as the meat and potatoes of my shoulder workout but did seated my last routine. I swap out ever bar exercise for dumbell every other week as well as incline flys for dips. Now as far as upright rows not being in with a shoulder routine, i feel that upright rows work upper back better/more then they do shoulders so i have put it in with my back routine.

    Why is it that everyone tries to re-invent the wheel?

    I do push/pull/legs with basically no isolation at all and it works great.

    I do
    flat bench
    decline or incline
    shoulder press
    closegrip bench

    deadlift
    lat pulldown
    row
    upright row
    shrugs

    squat (lots)
    sldl
    good morning
