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?

    You show me yours and I'll show you mine

    I have been a VERY long time reader of this forum but not until I started building my home gym did I signup and post...none the less I have always noticed people are very fast fo throw up the Starrs 5x5, BGB, WBB1-2-3, as a routine to research (and adapt to fit). But I want to see your exact routines assuming they are adapted.



    Like mine (currently) is, for example, WBB2 except I do a ultralight (5-15#) set of 15 to warm-up (ex-football player...have to warm up and stretch). Then do 2 heavy sets of 6 to 9 (once I can do 10 I advance weight). Also I alternate bar and dumbs on incline and flat bench. My chin, dips and pullups are weighted. And no leg press, or leg extension, just 2-10 squats. And on leg day I have weighted crunches are hanging leg raises. Also on day5 I work my obliques.
    Then every 8th week we do a boxing routine ->middle of the page is the routine



    Basically if you could just post your routines, or the routine title and your adaptations...I will be your friend

    Mine is a modified BGB, which is a 4 day split. You can see how I modified it by looking at the past week of my journal (in my sig.) Hope it helps - I've been happy with it.

    I'm on the "Get-to-the-gym-as-often-as-possible-and-try-to-do-kettlebell work-when-I-can't" program... It's a pretty crappy program and I don't recommend it.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Tuesdays - Back
    Deadlifts (5x5)
    BB Rows (3x3, 4x4, or 5x5)
    Clean and Jerk (8,6)
    Pull-ups

    Thursdays - Chest and Abs
    DB Bench (5x5)
    BB Incline (8,6)
    Dips
    Weighted Cable Ab Crunches

    Saturday - Legs
    Squats (5x5)
    SLDL (8,6)
    Calve work
    Goodmornings (only if I remember to do them)

    Anyhow, there's nothing special about this split. I push the weight up when I can and I eat more when I can't. Whoever said the devil is in the details is right... so I just get rid of all the details and voila, I'm devil-less.

    Oh, I just saw your name - you're living in Dillon? Right on, I lived in Alumni. I was there this weekend for the Blue and Gold game, Claussen is going to be a beast in like 3 years.
    25 years old, 5'10''

    Back in the States to get hayooooge!

    Health goals
    - Weigh a healthy and active 170-180, healthy mind and body
    - Dunk a basketball (hey a man can have big dreams huh)
    - Swim 2-3x/week and become a better swimmer
