The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Deload week when doing 3 day routine

    Do we still do a 4-day deload week if we're doing the 3 day routine? Or can we keep the 3 day routine and just do 2x15 for 4 workouts? Or is there even really any difference?

    The reason why the three day split has to do a four day workout week is because if you did three, it would be uneven. You'd either do workout A twice or workout B twice and the other one once. And how would you do four workouts in three days???

    I was meaning should we do them like mon, tue, thur, fri - or keep the same days and just do the 4 deload workouts. E.g. mon, wed, fri, and monday again

    Whenever you want, just do them. Nice, easy, light sessions.

    Like Pure Water said, doing them on M/T/T/F keeps you on a schedule. But, like Brian said, it doesn't matter.
