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?

    200 pounds is always 200 pounds.

    I've been around here for a couple years, learned a lot of things, and even got bigger and stronger from 2005 to halfway through 2006. Then came the house, wife, and baby. I no longer made time to get to the gym or eat good. My daughter is nearly seven months old, and we're all in a decent routine now. It's time to get serious again.

    I'm 27 years old, 6'2" and 177 lbs. I don't really like that. I don't want to be a pro bodybuilder or powerlifter, but I want to get a lot bigger and stronger than I am now. I don't know if it's possible for me, but I would like to be a lean 220-230 lbs without the use of AAS. I'm starting a journal so I can get a little encouragement and a kick in the ass if I start getting lazy. My first few workouts will be trying to find out where I stand and what numbers I put up.

    I usually get up early before work to lift, I've been doing chest/shoulders/tris, back/bis, and legs. I start to feel weak after 20-30 minutes, so I try to keep the workouts short and relatively intense. I'm open to criticism and suggestions for routine, diet, etc.

    Yesterdays back workout:

    Chinups - 3,4
    Deadlift - 2x5x135
    DB rows - 2x8x45

    I feel like I need to add a little more in there. Three exercises seems too short. With only seven chinups, I don't know if my lats got enough attention.
