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?

    It still looks like a split workout. A full body from what I understand is something you do every workout. These do seem to work the same muscle groups. So I guess it can work. I do a full body but it is usually 8 compounds every workout though.

    From 155 lbs to 200 lbs (PICS/VIDS INCLUDED)

    Height: 6'0"; BW: 202lbs; Age: 24; BF: ~11%
    155lbs [07-01-06] 176lbs [09-14-06] 179lbs [09-21-06] 182lbs [10-02-06] 184lbs [10-18-06] 186lbs [10-23-06] 187lbs [11-08-06] 189lbs [11-19-06] 190lbs [11-21-06] 191lbs [12-21-06] 194lbs [12-31-06]

    Bench: 250lbs; Squat: 350lbs lbs; Deadlift: 430 lbs

    Military: 111lbsx8; Dips: BWx30; Pullups: BWx10; WChestP: 360lbsx7; 45LegP: 470lbsx20; C Raise: 360lbs; BB Curl: 105lbsx3; Lat Pull: 195lbsx5

    Looks good, although 5x5 on all the exercises can be a killer.

    If you find it too difficult, then I would recommend 5x5 for the squats and bench on the mon and fri, and 5x5 on the deads and overhead presses on the wednesday. The other exercises can be 3 x 8-12 or something. Perhaps the pull ups can be 5x5 as well, I don't find them to be too exhausting.

    Those are exactly the exercises I'd choose as well.

    Thanks for yalls input. I'm going to try this for a couple of weeks to see how i like it. If i eat right i think this can be a good workout for me. But superman i see what your saying, i wanted to do like 7 exercises a day but i dont want to get burned out. I'm do this for a while then maybe add an extra compound exercise each day as i progress and get used to the work capacity.

    I just looked at Bill Star's intermediate workout and I really like it. Im wondering if I should do Bill Star's workout instead of the one I posted. What do you guys think?
