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?

    Finished with BGB, need new routine.

    I've been on BGB for the past few months and after having to take several days off I've decided I need to go to 3 days a week for rest purposes. It always seemed that every few weeks I'd start lagging and overtraining. Maybe this is because I jumped into BGB with basically no prior lifting and it could have been to intense a jump. I don't know. I know I ate enough although I wasn't on a great sleeping schedule. Anyways, how does this look?

    Day 1---Back/Chest
    Deadlift 5x5
    T-Bar Row 3x8
    BB-Flat Bench 5x5
    Ab Crunches 3x12

    Day 2--Rest

    Day 3---Quads/Hams/Tris
    Squat 5x5
    Leg Press 3x8
    Dips 5x5
    Cable Pressdowns 3x10

    Day 4--Rest

    Day 5---Back/Shoulders
    Chinups 5x5--Doing jump chinups right now because can't do enough reg. ones
    Biangular Lat Pulldown 3x8
    Seated Overhead Press 5x5
    Ab Crunches 3x12

    Anyways, I'm 170 at ~20-22% BF and am now going to start cutting. Was previously eating 3400 cals and am dropping to 3000 and will gradually drop to lose .5-1lbs a week.

    For a cut, I use the BGB bodypart arrangement, but with only the 5x5 and the 3x8. Keep the volume low, keep the workouts short and heavy, and toss in a little cardio as the cut progresses. Keep the tempos a little shorter so the time under tension is closer to strength range than hypertrophy range, but still with slow eccentrics and explosive concentrics.
