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?

    Everyone's Best routine, that got them the most gains.

    I would like to hear what everyone's routine was when they got there best gains.whether that be HIT,Max-ot, volume, static,periodization,HST, circuit and ect. Post the routine if you can.

    The routine that got me the best gains, was high volume, twice a week but I was on gear at the time.

    My best routine natural is the modified HIT routine that I posted in my journal.

    Interested to see what everyone else did to get the most gains.

    What works best for me is the standard 3 day split:
    Chest/tris/abs
    Hams/gluds/caves
    Back/bi's

    I feel gains have more to do with the exercises then the split, because I'm doing more compound exercises now and experiencing more gains.

    The routine that is listed on the first page of my journal:

    Short version: 3 workouts per week or per 1.5 weeks
    Chest/shd/tri's
    Back/bi's
    Legs

    I could give all to Time except - except
    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    Depends.

    I've had success with Westside, straight PLing programs a la Ed Coan, 5-day BB splits, 4-day BB splits, 3-day splits, OL-style programs split across 3-4 days, a 5-day strongman program I tried out, etc etc etc.

    As long as I work hard and rest, I can get results from about anything.

    Though I have to say, my current program is my favorite to date regarding strength and size gains. I've got another one I like better for Oly lifting/athletic performance.

    The best routine I ever followed was a 3 day routine doing squats and accessory monday, deads and accessory wednesday, and bench and accessory on friday.

    I went from a 135 lb squat to a 300 lb squat.
    I gained 40 pounds on bench
    I gained around 100 lbs on deadlifts

    The basics just seem to work the best for me

    All I did was 45 minutes 3 days a week, only 3 sets on the squats, bench, and dls and only 4 - 6 reps

    The accessory stuff was 10-12 reps

    It's really quite amazing that lifting less gives you the best results.
