The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Upper Body program

    I know im not including legs in this weight training routine because im currently doing a plyometrics leg program after school. So how does this program look for gaining strength and size for my upper body while working out at home? Please share your opinions.

    Upper Body program


    Mon
    Medium grip pull up 4x8
    Narrow grip BP 4x8
    Superset
    Chest flys

    Wed
    Medium grip BP 6x6
    Wide grip pull up 6x6
    Superset
    Rear delt flys

    Fri
    Reverse grip chin up 2x15
    Wide grip Incline BP 2x15
    Superset
    Incline Chest flys


    I will add 2.5 pound increasements to each exercise ever week. What do you think? I know its simple

    On wed, ill change the wide grip pull up to a bent over row. That will isometricly hit my low back. I dont want to do any deads or anything because it will hit my legs as well wich will interfear with my plyo program.

    EDIT: just read chubs post, i was going to wait for an answer, ah well...

    i was doing plyo and leg work in the same programme, no problems

    fyi, if your tariner ever uses the word "might" just ignore him.

    What are you training for? I personally think your trainer is a dumbass for having you do just plyos. Plyometrics can be effectively used in conjunction with SQ and DLing. If your trainer lacks the knowledge/ability to develop a split in which you both strengthen your legs and posterior chain as well heighten your abilities through plyometrics, then I believe you need to find somewhere else to train.
