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?

    There are threads at the top of the forum that will give you all of the information that you need.

    You can also do a search for "beginner program" and find detailed regimens such as Starting Strength (which seems to be the most popular one here).

    Quick answers:

    1. Depends on the individual, for a basic routine you can do two upper body days and one lower body day - with the first upper body day focused on pushing (chest / shoulders / triceps) and the second on pulling (back / biceps / traps / rear deltoids).

    2. Again, depends on the person but 45 minutes to an hour is an effective amount of time to spend in the gym. Definitely do not train for more than an hour.

    3. For large muscle groups (legs, chest, back) you can do 10 sets total, and for smaller muscle groups (shoulders, biceps, triceps) I would go with 5 sets total. I am just trying to give you some general guidelines - but again, this would change based on your individual abilities and goals.
