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?

    Rate my Routine

    Hey fellas for about the past 5 months I have been doing this routine:

    Mon: Shoulders, Biceps, and Triceps
    Wed: Legs and Traps
    Fri: Chest and Back

    Shoulders: 3 exercises,4 sets each: dumbell press, lateral dumbell raise, frontal dumbell raise
    Tris: 2 exercises, 4 sets each: skullcrushers, dips
    Biceps: 2 exercises, 4 sets each: hammer curls, preacher curls

    Legs: 5 exercises, 4 sets of squat, 3 sets of leg extensions, 4 sets of hamstrings curls lying on the machine, 4 sets of deadlifts, 5 sets of calv raises.
    Traps: 2 exercises, 4 sets each

    Chest: 3 exercises, 4 sets each: flat bench dumbell press, incline dumbell press, decline bench press
    Back: 3 exercises, 4 sets each: decline close grip rows, pull-ups, reverse grip chin-ups

    I skip doing flys for my chest because right now I am more worried about size of my chest than tone.

    I would take out the leg extensions in favor of a different kind of squats or even leg press, take out leg curls in favor of straight leg deadlifts and maybe hyperextensions or good mornings.

    Do your shoulders and arms respond well to that much volume? 28 sets in one day for muscles that aren't very big seems a littl much. I would think you could cut the number of sets for all those exercises in half, increase the intensity by upping the weight so you can only push out 4-6 complete unassisted reps, and take out the preacher curls in favor of good old-fashioned barbell curls.

    Other than that, the setup and split looks okay. How has it been working for you? What are you pleased with, and what are you disappointed with?

    Not good at all! Change it to: Push/Legs/Pull or a Upper/lower split or a total body workout.

    Stick to big compound movements like:

    Squat
    Bench
    Military press
    Dead lift
    SLDL
    CGBP
    Dips
    Pull ups
    Rows Lat pulls

    ect
