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?

    I suggest trying the wannabebig routine. The problem I (and others) find with your last routine was the amount of volume involved in it and lack of rest.. if not the wbb routine, maybe look at people journals here and maybe something will catch your eye.

    Ya, it all depends on you and what you can work with. Look around for some good routines in the journals. I havent been using my current routine long, but i DO like it so far, its a nice push, legs, pull routine.. If you want, Ill post it, but there are LOTS of good ones on this site..

    What's your goal?
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    My main goal is to gain strength in every area of my body. I do play football in high school, but that's really not the reason I lift. I guess I just love to work out It's one of my favorite things to do.

    When I started weight training, three years ago, my bench was 95 lbs and my squat was 175 lbs. In three years I've raised my max in bench to 175 lbs and my squat to 280 lbs. Is this good progress in your eyes?
    Squat - 505
    Bench - 325
    Deadlift - 550
    Total - 1380@175

    I think any improvement is good! From your beginning bench max, I'd say you're really lean. Try packing on some pounds, if so. Gaining weight gives you more leverage to lift heavier weights; thus more potential to gain lean muscle. Eat lots of protein. Eat the hell out of "all natural" peanut butter. Peanuts are real calorie dense. Add a scoop or two to your protein powder and enjoy. The extra calories will hopefully pack on some pounds for ya....... Good luck.

    yah, the wannabebig routine (start with the first) comes highly recommended. never tried it myself, but I've heard great things about it. For my routine I have standard exercises I do, and every month or so I'll rotate one exercise out, and rotate one in that works the same body part, but in a different way. (I.e. incline flyes for flyes) the ones that are not currently being used, but waiting to be rotated in are below the dashed lines I made. Some exercises I'll always use though, such as deadlifts, squats, benching. So here's what I do.

    Legs&shoulders

    squats 10 8 6
    Leg Ext. 8 6
    Leg Curls: 8 6
    Calf Raises: 10 8 6
    --------------------
    Leg Presses


    DB Militaries: 8 6
    Laterals: 10 8
    Rear Laterals: 10 8
    BB Shrugs: 10 8 6


    BACK&BICEP

    Chins: 8 6
    Deadlifts: 10 8 6
    DB Rows: 8 6
    -----------------
    Lat Pulldowns: 8 6

    DB Curls: 8 6
    Hammers: 8 6
    -----------------
    Cable Curls: 10 8
    DB/BB Preachers: 8 6
    Inc. DB Curls: 8 6


    CHEST&TRICEPS

    Flat DB/BB: 10 8 6
    Inc. DB/BB: 8 6
    Flyes: 10 8

    Incline Flyes: 10 8
    Decline BB/DB: 8 6


    Skulls: 10 8
    Cable Pulldowns: 10 8
    -----------------
    Close Grip Benching: 8 6
    Dips: 10 8
    Underhand Ext: 10 8
    OH Rope Ext: 10 8
    Kickbacks: 10 8
    Cable Pulldowns: 10 8




    That's the routine I'm currently using and getting results with. Don't forget to eat tons as well bro. Good luck.
