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?

    No - it's too much work. I used a Squat/DL Assistance day when I was doing this. I would do:

    Power Squat
    Back Raises
    Abs

    You could throw in extensions and curls if you wanted to, but very light. If you really wanted to, I guess you could do squats on the assistance day. i would keep it light and fast. 3-4x10 and that's it. I worry about the shoulders and elbows getting beat up from holding the bar on your back 2x per week. With the PL side, I have to keep my bench moving, as well.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Before you go to train everyday, think about the less fortunate and what they would give to just have the opportunity to be training like a madman.
