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?

    Help with a new 4 or 5 day routine, please!

    My routine had been:

    Monday: Legs
    Squats, 4-5 sets
    Calf Raises, 2 sets
    Straight leg deads, 2 sets

    Tuesday: Chest
    Flat Bench, 3-4 sets
    Incline Bench, 3 sets
    Decline Bench, 3 sets

    Wednesday: Back
    Deads, 3-4 sets
    Seated Cable Rows, 2 sets
    Pullups, 3 sets

    Thursday: Arms
    Straight Bar Curls, 2-3 sets
    Cable Curls, 2 sets
    Cable Pulldowns, 2-3 sets
    Two Handed Overheads, 3 sets

    Friday: Shoulders
    Seated DB Shoulder Press, 3 sets
    Shrugs, 3 sets
    Lateral Raises, 2 sets

    Am thinking about cutting down to 4 days, and would also like some variance, especially for my chest, but really for any of the muscle groups.

    I would drop the arm day.

    I would say for the first set of chest to 5x5, and do a 3x8. so do 5x5 incline bb press, then a 3x8 flat db press supersetted with 3x8 flys. Drop the decline work. Add your bicep exercises after the chest work.

    On your shoulder day, add your tricep exercises. I would add probably 2 sets of closed grip bench and 2 sets of skull crushers.

    Beware of overtraining your shoulder with the direct work and the indirect hitting on chest/back day.

    Actually, just look into Baby Got Back. Its a 4 day split that covers what you need.
