The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Thoughts on Dysmorphia Training?

    Hey guys I know you guys all know I jump around alot when I workout and such. I wanted to do westside once, and a body building program once. Well I came across the program from this website Dysmorphia Training, and i would just like your thoughts on it. I would also like to switch a few of the ME Lifts for my personal gain.
    Hack Squat to Front Squat
    Board Press to Floor Press
    and is there anyway I can add the Over Head Press in as well?
    I know you guys dont think I will stick with it, but im 100% sure I will stick with this program, and I have always been curious how changing your program can hurt you beacuse wouldnt that cause muscle confusion, and if every workout had the big 3 it would be benifical right? But thanks for the help guys.

    Muscles do not have brains. Which means they can't think. Which means you cannot confuse a muscle.

    Ohh I heard that if you do a certain workout for sometime your musles get used to it, and if you switch it up it builds more? But any thoughts on the program?

    I would say you're new enough to not understand what you actually need. Pick a routine, don't change it, and stick with it.

    I made this mistake in my first year of training. Get a decent program and don't change a thing! Especially deadlifts and squats!

    So do you think it would be okay swapping 2 of the ME Lifts?

    If you REALLY want to use those lifts instead... I don't think it should make much of a difference .... just stick with it..... and btw, you got grief for using the term "muscle confusion" because anyone who actually understands physiology knows it's a B.S. concept. The term itself is really primarily a marketing gimmick developed by Beachbody LLC (p90x creators) and is used to differentiate their products from others on the market so they sell more. Ultimately, the term is a misnomer that is very misleading, especially to the novice, on how to train.
