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?

    Best combos....?

    What would you guys say are the best combos during workouts when were talking about body areas?

    The reason I ask is because this morning I worked my shoulders first and then legs, and when it came to the squats, I could barely get the bar over my head to rest on my shoulder, yet I performed them well.

    Thanks,

    I prefer a push/pull split (aka BGB routine). As far as the lifts themselves, do the compounds before accessory. With things like shoulders/legs it shouldn't matter.

    There are many variations.With Bodybuilding,Ive always like working complimentary bodyparts.Meaning,ones that are already getting work on the primary ones.

    -Chest/Shoulders/Tris

    -Back/traps/bi's

    -Legs/abs/low back

    Or do shoulders on a day on their own with traps.Either a 3 or 4 day split,whichever your schedule allows.For powerlifting you work the primary lift with "assistance work".Meaning exercises that help with that particular lift.

    -Bench/rows,lat work/Tris

    -Deadlifts/low back/biceps

    -Military press/Rows,lat work,/tri's

    -Squat/low back/abs

    PM'd you Mike But I like what you said here, and it is very similar to what Omega has taught me. I have my three main workouts divided up exactly as you listed. What is your opinion on sets/reps for a good muscle gaining routine ?

    I am doing high reps on 1st set and go down several reps each set but increase the weight also every set. What is your opinion please ?
