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?

    I think you're doing 15 sets for your legs compared to a lot more for the other half of your body.

    Frenquency is not too much, but I don't know if I like the order.

    Training Shoulders the day before chest and triceps is not a good idea since you will be pressing on back to back days.

    You can take out the rest day on Tuesday and move legs to Tuesday, then slide everything else up one day in your program and Sunday will then be a rest day.

    Along the lines of what Jorge said, you do not want to do more than 20 sets in any one workout.

    I'd do a premade, there's way too many of them that are proven to work.
    Give chalk a chance.
