The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    I train quads and hams seperately just so I can hit my hams as hard as my quads.

    In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.

    I've been thinking about doing that but then my back day would be rather busy and my leg day would be kinda boring... What exercises do you do on your legs and back days now?

    then abs and sometimes forearms


    Back/Ham/Bie
    I use the heaviest weight I think I can move and slow reps 4-6 seconds each.

    Seated Rows

    My problem with that routine is that you've got quite a bit more work to do on the back/ham day and your quad day is somewhat short. Seems a little out of balance. It seems like I'd have some energy left after the quad day but would be struggling severly to finish the back/ham day...

    Me legs are dead after I squat, i guess they can't recover as fast as every thing else. After I do 8 -10 sets on abs it is only about 10 minutes shorter. I haven't had any problem with the intensity of my back/ham day.
    Deal with it.

    I believe splitting up quads and hams yields superior results. This way you can put 100% into each.
