The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    New need help?

    How is it going im new to this working out thing and have only been doing it with and experienced friend for the last 3 weeks. I have some questions about what we are doing.

    For starters i am 5'8 and 175-180lbs. I am not very strong except for in my legs from walking golf courses i guess. but i have a gut and kinda small man boobs lol.

    We work out in sets of 15(warm up) then 10,8,6
    Everyother week we powerlift sets of 6,5,4


    Our Routine is

    Monday-Chest
    Tuesday-Biceps.Triceps
    Wednesday-Shoulders Lats and Traps
    Thursday-Upper Leg and Butt
    Friday-Lower Leg and Chest again maybe


    I also take 2 protein shakes a day and use Creatine the kind you take imediatley after workout, got it from vitamine shop. Also add gultamine to shakes.

    My bench is low around 115 max probably. Just wondering how long till I get my bench to around 200? And when i will start to see muscle mass and will just working out and running a little help me lose fat or will i need a lot of cardio?

    I was also crazy sore for the first week but now im not really to much or not unbearable is this normal or am i not working out hard enough? i go really hard and sometimes just die so im sure thats not it

    get your diet in order first and foremost. terrible routine. get on starting stength. do your cardio after your workout. i'd take creatine before your workouts.
    stats:Bench: 285 goal: 305
    squat: 390 goal: 420
    dead: 405 goal: 445
    weight and height: 230, 6'2 age:18

    Starting Strength is where most people around here start out. There is a sticky at the top of the forum.

    I've read that you should take creatine after workouts, because it can dehydrate you during your workout if you take it beforehand. Is this correct?
