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?

    Variation of Rippetoe Needing Help

    Hey guys.
    I have been on this workout here which is a variation of Rippetoe which is great

    This is a slight variation of Rippetoe's outstanding "Starting Strength" workout. You train on 3 nonconsecutive days per week.

    So week 1 might look like:
    Monday - Workout A
    Wednesday -Workout B
    Friday - Workout A

    Week 2:
    Monday - Workout B
    Wednesday - Workout A
    Friday - Workout B

    anyway, here are the adjusted workouts (sets x reps, not including warmup sets):

    Workout A
    3x5 Squat
    3x5 Bench Press
    1x5 Deadlift
    2x5-8 dips (only add weight if you are doing >10 bodyweight dips)

    Workout B
    3x5 Squat
    3x5 Standing military press
    3x5 Pendlay Rows (or power cleans for 5x3, 5 sets of 3 reps apiece)
    2x5-8 chinups ***if you do the power cleans, do 3 sets of chinups***

    Fridays only (Not earlier than 3 weeks into program) -
    Parallel Bar dips or incline skullcrushers - 2 x 8-12
    barbell/DB/EZ-Bar curls - 2 x 8-12

    thanks to kethnaab for the post.

    Here is my Question:

    For this week my workout is Workout B A B
    Because i just finished my 3rd week and this will be my first friday on the 4th week do i add those friday workouts on the end of the workout or do you take some out or ?

    Workout B
    3x5 Squats
    3x5 Standing Military Press
    3x5 Pendlay Rows
    2x5-8 Chinups
    Parallel Bar dips or incline skullcrushers - 2 x 8-12
    barbell/DB/EZ-Bar curls - 2 x 8-12

    And on top of that the dailys
    -45 degree Decline bench weighted situps, 3x5
    -Hyperextensions - 3x8

    Because thats the only part i dont get,

    Also one last thing next week i will be doing dips standard on friday so does that mean i replace dips with parallel bar dips or skull crushers ?

    Those Friday arm work outs are for supplemental use. But to answer your question, you add it to your work out.
