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?

    H.i.t.

    I reckon its the best way to train, particularly for natural...i see too many guys in my gym doing set after endless set...and getting nowhere.

    I am influenced upon the training philosophies by Dorian Yates/Mentzer...but I do my own hybrid that suits me in regards of excersise frueqency and volumne etc., but I very rarely do more than 3 workings set per bodypart train 3 maybe 2 times a week...I've been training over 10 years, naturally, and I have discovered this being the best way to improve...if there ever is a bodybuilding secret...I'd say its recuperation.



    sincerely

    The 'Best' way? No.

    For some, HIT is very effective. For others, it is not.

    Recuperation/rest is indeed very important.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    I do believe that what is right for everyone is keeping a close eye on the volume.

    I don't do more then 5 sets total for big muscle groups.

    These threads are always funny to me for one reason, I am not a high-volume advocate myself, but at my gym, everybody does high volume and they all look great. So I never understand the negativity towards it. To me, it just seems like a waste of time, but it seems to work great.

    That is a ridiculous statement. I have trained at gyms all over the country, and have never seen a gym where "everybody" looks great and trains with high volume. It is normally quite the contrary. If "everybody" at your gym does use high volume and look great, then "everybody" is taking steroids.

    Hi jeremy...heres mine if you're interested...it may or may not work for you coz over the years i discovered which excersises, sets and reps exclusivly that work work for me...

    for example leg workout i do..takes no longer than 40 mins....but each working set is taken to its absolute limit and beyond...

    *= warmup set...

    legs....

    standing calves...2* sets of 15-20
    1 working set of 15 to failure, including forced, negatives and rest pause sets....

    squats.....2* sets of 20
    1 set of 10- absolute failure

    leg curls 1 set 12 -failure...



    sincerely
