The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Adding more squats

    So basically I am doing BGB really simple style. Right now I'm on a four day split and am trying to figure out where to add more squats. I like them too much and want to get em in more frequently. As of right now this is how I roll:

    MON - Squat, GMs
    TUES- Bench, Rows
    WED- off
    THUR- DLs, Front Squats
    FRI- Pullups, OH Press

    Everything is 5x5 except the GMs and Front squats, which are 3x8s.

    I want to try and throw some more regular back squats in there so I'd be doing 1x heavy day, 1x light day, 1x front squat day.

    As far as the bodies ability to rest, I feel like I get enough sleep to workout quite often, so would adding a squat day on Saturday be wise? Or should I maybe just go heavy on Monday, keep fronts on thursday and do light squats after my vertical push/pull on friday?
    "Fine, if I'm not allowed to light it on fire, can my imaginary friend?"

    Honestly I wouldn't - drop your reps on the your back squat days and start working heavier.
