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?

    Effective?

    Since I been training for a while and have a good amount of mass could working one muscle group a day be effective? Thanks

    This is what I do and I would say yes! I could give my training split if interested.

    You have a full day dedicated to hamstrings? Care to post your entire work out (or link to journal/thread)?

    Yes - I have done this in the past with good results.

    In fact there is no reason that you need to be an experienced trainee to make good progress with a body part split; my first training program was a body part split and I stuck with that until I started competing in strength sports and switched over to a movement focused split rather than a muscle group split (although they are somewhat similar).

    Hamstring day:
    Seated hamstring curls 4 or 5 set of 15-20 reps (1 or 2 sets of the 4/5 sets are warmups)
    GHR 4 sets of 12-15 reps
    Stiff legged Deadlifts 4 sets of 15 reps
    Single Leg hamstring curls 4 sets of 15 to 20 reps each leg
    (I increase in weight each set)

    I have my own hamstring day to the simple fact my quads over power my hamstrings on a side chest pose. I'm a bodybuilder so I going to sculpt my physique to win shows.

    To be clear, what Matthew is doing is a true bodybuilding split. Most competitive bodybuilders do something similar.

    Chris, this is correct. I have a bodybuilda training split and I'm getting great gains.
