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?

    Is this a joke? Have a little self-respect. Taking a damn routine from a Flex magazine.

    That might be too much volume if you're training to failure three times a week. At age 16 it might not be a problem for you.

    I'd put the military press in workout #1 so that you have push/pull split. I don't think you need to be doing side raises at this stage of your development. Probably ditto for the flyes.

    I don't think this is a bad workout. I've thought about doing push/pull three times a week like you're describing.

    I've also thought about doing it with alternating heavy and light days for each split. Like this:

    Week One
    Push heavy
    Pull- heavy
    Push- light

    Week Two
    Pull- light
    Push- heavy
    Pull- heavy


    etc etc

    heavy = max workouts for a given rep range, kinda like ME in Westside
    light = 70% of above, kinda like DE in Westsde. But not ballistic (too old for that noise)

    Yep, joke.
    "If you have a 10-horsepower motor and you subject it to a 12-horsepower load, it will burn out. But when you have a human body that is the equivalent of a 10-horsepower motor and you subject it to a 12-horsepower load, it eventually becomes a 12-horsepower motor."

    Amp why dont you like giving legs it's own day ?

    At your age your legs will drive your upper body growth tremendously.

    Focussing on legs would be the best thing you could do

    So what part's the joke- the push/pull split, or the 3 workouts a week?
