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?

    Training Twice a Week

    From next week i won't be able to train 3 times a week like i'm doing. (i'm doing the texas method). I will be able to train just twice a week. This situation should be transitory and should last a couple of months. During this time i don't want to lose a considerable amount of strength. How can i organize the training? I was thinking about doing a full body every 3-4 days.

    Something like this:

    Day A
    Squat
    Bench Press
    Back work (no deadlift)
    Abs (something like sit-ups)

    Day B
    Squat assistance
    Overhead Press
    Deadlift
    Abs (something like side bends)

    I think a lot of usefull exercices are going to be left out of my training.

    Training twice a week can be very productive. Use the extra rest to really push the weights when you get to workout. I've always liked this setup:

    Squat
    S.l.d.l.
    Bench
    Rows

    Deadlift
    OH Press
    Chin-ups
    Ab work

    Good suggestion, Off Road, that's about what I was thinking, as well.
