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 desire to be ripped. Not nescessarily "big" (there is a question)

    It occurs to me I may be going about it the wrong way...probably should've seen it sooner... <_<;;

    Anyways here's what I do

    DB Incline Press 2x6
    Weighted Dips*
    Weighted Chinups*
    BO DB Rows*

    Closegrip Bench*
    Standing Tricep pushdowns*
    Preacher Curls*
    Hammer Curls 2x6
    Weighted Incline situps 3x8
    Shrugs 3x12

    Squats 2x6
    Hack Squats 2x6
    Leg Curls 3x8
    Standing Calf Raises 3x12
    SL Deads 2x6

    Everything with a * is 3x6

    So anyways my understanding is that 2-3 sets of 6-8 reps is ideal for Hypertrophy, the increasing of muscle size, right? So if I'm not bent about muscle size, which I'm not, I'm going for ripped, then should I be doing higher reps and sets?

    I don't know anything. You tell me.


    Edit: you might need this


    Yes I am "eating the house down" >_>
