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?

    Thoughts on my new routine?

    I had been following a routine similar to WBB1 with decent results, but I came up with a new routine vaguely similar to wbb1.1 that I think may work better. What are your guys thoughts on it?

    Lower Day 1
    Deadlifts
    Front Squat
    Pull Through
    Calf Raises

    Upper Day 1
    Bench
    Incline Bench
    Dips
    Cable Rows
    Close Grip Pulldowns
    Shoulder Press
    Curls

    Rest

    Lower Day 2
    Squat
    Leg Press
    Lunges
    Good Morning
    Abs

    Upper Day 2
    Chinups
    DB/BB Bent over row
    Decline Bench 2 sets
    Cable Flys
    db lateral raises
    Close Grip Bench

    Rest

    Rest

    Repeat

    O and it will be sets of 4x5-8 for bench, squat, dl, and 3x5-8 for everything else

    I like the lower days, but I would probably mix the upper days up a little to hit back and chest twice a week. It seems like Upper Day 1 is a "Chest Day" and Upper Day 2 is a "Back Day". I'm not a big fan of that.

    Tofer- How do you like the edits? I'm kind of hesitant to completely seperate the chest/back exercises from eachother as I like doing multiple of the body part together as opposed to apart because I feel like I work them better. So I added a few back exercises to the "chest day" and vise versa.

    It's not bad.

    I don't have really any suggestions besides doing free weight exerises totally. Like db rows instead of cable etc.

    Looks solid.

    Agreed. I split up your upper days similar to how mine are split up:

    Lower Day 1
    Deadlifts
    Front Squat
    Pull Through
    Calf Raises

    Upper Day 1
    Bench
    Incline Bench
    Cable Rows
    DB/BB Rows
    Curls

    Rest

    Lower Day 2
    Squat
    Leg Press
    Lunges
    Good Morning
    Abs

    Upper Day 2
    Chinups
    Shoulder Press
    Dips
    Close Grip Bench
    db lateral raises

    Just an idea...

    o come on there's nothing wrong with leg press if its in addition to things like squat and deadlift.

    Outshine- I like how you split up the upper days, I think I'll probably go with that.
