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?

    Legs on off days? 30lb 30 days BP

    Hey guys I finally got a membership to a gym with lots of free weights.


    Anyways I'm starting the 30 day bench press program because it sent my old 1RM through the roof the last time I did it and I completely understand it but I don't want to stay out of the gym on Tuesday and Thursday I like to stay in the gym so I don't know if I should work on my lower body on off days or would it hurt my bench progress?

    Maybe just do cardio and light legs on Tuesday and Thursday?

    I don't know all the exercises in that routine, but if there is little or no legs in the routine, then adding one day of legs certainly won't hurt.

    In the program its Mon, Wed, Fri and it incorporates squats on Monday, deads on Wednesday and leg press on Friday.

    I am the kind of guy that goes to the gym every day I don't usually take days off unless on Saturday or Sunday.

    So I am thinking instead of doing squat with the workout on Monday do them on Tuesday and do deads on Thursday...

    But I could be wrong.

    Do the routine as written. I'm sure it works for a reason.
    Having to go to the gym every day is just OCD and something you need to get over.

    Agreed. If the routine has leg work in it and is only 3 days per week, stick with it. More is not always better. I've done 3,4,5 & 6 days routines. 4 days per week is what has been best for me. You might find that 3 days a week works well for you.

    and this. My best results have come from 3 day a week routines.

    Sorry guys I don't have OCD but I am used to the way my football weightlifting was where we lifted M-F.

    Thanks for the replies guys you are steering me in the right direction.
