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?

    New routine

    Ive hit a stand still on a few of my lifts and my old routine is growing stale, plus I haven't gotten a routine checked out in over a year id say (maybe the reason why my lifts are sticking the same)

    Day 1 Chest
    - Flat BB bench x4
    - Closed grip bench x2
    - Incline DB bench x4
    - Dips x2

    *note: I rotate starting with flat and incline bi weekly

    Day 2 Cardio
    - 20min row
    -15min bike

    *note: I'll do less of both and add a 5-10min sprinting session bi weekly

    Day 3 Abs/Shoulders
    - DB shoulder press x3
    - Arnold press x3
    - Hanging leg raises x5
    - Weighted crunches x3
    - Standing BB shoulder press x3

    Day 4 Cardio
    - 20min run - not that hard

    Day 5 Legs
    - Squats x6
    - walking lunges x3

    *note: I rotate lunges and leg press bi weekly

    Day 6 Cardio
    - 40min swim - low-mod intensity

    Day 7 Back
    - Deadlifts x4
    - T-bar rows x4
    - Shrugs x4

    I do cardio twice a week, not 3 times. One of those cardio days I take off and it depends on my schedule

    Thoughts?

    edit: I dont count warm up sets (one or two starting off for the bigger lifts)

    Whats are your sets and reps.

    All I see is...."X 4" next to excersizes.

    If you're looking for some good routines I would highly recommend Baby got back or the super squat program.

    Both have worked pretty well for me. Baby got back made my lat spread huge. I'm currently on the super squat program and so far it seems to be working beautifully.

    ^ I have no interest in becoming "huge", nor do I want huge lats. I lift of vanity. I will look at that super squat program though.

    oh, the x4 x6 etc. are sets. I do 8-10 reps of the smaller stuff and ~6 reps for squats and deads

    Then why dont you just follow a strength program. It seems a waste to lift just to lift...I mean. I love lifting and will always do it until I physically cant anymore.....but I have some sort of goals. Like once I reach my weight goals I want to work on my strength for the rest of my days..

    Plus you dont have to be as big as pro bodybuilders...they dont get that big anyways unless they use roids.
