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?

    Shoulders 4 times a week, chest 2 times, back once and legs once?

    Not only is this horribly unbalanced with way more pushing than pulling, but your arms have more work on them than your legs and back combined.

    In itself this is bad enough as it is not likely to give you an aesthetic physique, but you also may injure yourself by causing a muscle imbalance somewhere along the line.


    Drop the flyes and shrugs and put chest and back together. Train them twice a week. Train legs twice a week. Put a rest day after every two days of training. You do NOT need 15 sets of curls (I'm assuming you put reps first and sets last...It's usually the other way around). I'd eliminate the direct bicep and tricep work altogether...maybe throw in a few sets of standing OHP after the chest/back work.
