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?

    Question about different routines

    I was wondering what the difference is in working out one body part a day (5 days a week), and working out 2 body parts a day (3 days a week). For example

    Monday - Chest
    Tuesday - Back
    Wednesday - Legs
    Thursday - Shoulders
    Friday - Biceps/Triceps


    Monday - Chest/Back
    Wednesday - Shoulders/Legs
    Friday - Biceps/Triceps

    Are they the same or do you get different results by doing one or the other?

    Myself, I like to have one day of rest between lifting. I feel more recovered and motivated to lift. Also using full body workouts seem to work much better for me and a lot of people actually. If you wanted to split it up I would go with 4 days, not 5.

    You should combine chest with back, remove your arms day, and condense your regimen to 3-4 days a week.

    What is your routine? How's your diet?

    All bodypart split routines suck... Atleast in a strength training perspective.
