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?

    Please help me!

    I'm a 22:year old Swedish guy and I'm training to get bigger and to get more "visible" muscles.
    Right now my training schedule looks like this:

    Monday:
    Chest and Triceps
    Chest 9x8 reps
    Triceps 6x8 reps

    Tuesday: Off

    Wednesday:
    Back and Biceps
    Back: 12x8-10 reps
    Biceps 6x8 reps

    Thursday: Off

    Friday:
    Shoulders and legs
    Shoulders: 9x8 reps
    Legs 12x10-12 reps

    Sat+Sun: Off

    My weight is 105kg or 231lb and I'm 194cm or 6' 5'' tall.
    I think I eat properly, about 3500 kcal and 150-200g of protein a day.
    What do YOU think about this program?
    Do I have anything in it that I should change to be able to build big muscles faster?

    Hopin' 4 answer!

    When you say 9x8 is that sets and reps? If so then you should cut it back to 3 or 4x8.

    Re: the same

    Ok, I think I can raise my energy intake a little more.
    But 300g of protein? Your body can only get about 30g of protein a meal. Do you eat 10 times a day?...

    Do you mean that I should only do three or four sets with 8 reps in each?
    Maybe on triceps, but och my back and chest I think I need to do more sets?...

    Although people will provide anecdotal evidence I have never seen any study to suggest that your body can utilize any more than 1g per lb of bodyweight for anything other than glucose production.

    I agree with others wrt calories though.
