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?

    Intermediate lifter looking for tips and oppinions

    I have sighned up @ and followed previous instructions on how to gain weight( )
    Ive gained a few pounds and its looking good(any comments on diet or extra tips would be awsome) but now i need to pound out an organized gym routine for bulking.
    I like the Bill Stars's Routine but im not completly sure on how to do the sets. Do i do them one after another of them same excorsize or do i rotate through the exorcizes till im done? (ex. squat,squat,squat, then go to the next exercise OR squat,bench,barbell row rinse repeat)??
    Also on the reps should i push till failure or until i feel tired? (I have to find out my 5 rep maxes ect)
    I really like the "wannabebig Routine 2( and would prefer to do this routine but it seems to be less popular. What is your oppinion on the effectiveness of these 2 routines. (Im currently doing a full-body workout for 1.5 hrs every other day for the past few monthes, so im not sure which routine change will be more effective)

    Thanks for your help~!~

    On the 5 x 5 you're supposed to go - squat, squat, squat, bench, bench, bench, etc.

    You should also be ramping up the weight so it should be something like this for benching - ex. 135x5, 155x5, 185x5, 205x5, 225x5 - this way the last two sets are really hard, and the first ones are just heavy warm ups. The next week you should try to add 5 lbs to each set, or if that's too much, 1 rep to your last set.

    Also, your testosterone drops significantly after about 70 minutes, so try not to work longer than that.
