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?

    Weekly split advice needed

    Currently I'm doing a 3 day split of Upper body on Mon and Fri and Lower body on Wednesday.

    Would there be any glaring advantages/disadvantages to going to a 5 day split divided by major body parts? (exp.-Back/bi's one day,Legs another)

    The second option would allow me better to isolate the muscles...but I'm doing ok on the first routine so far.

    Any advice? (yeah I'm knit picking)

    If you want to isolate, you could always meet yourself halfway and do a 4-day split rather than 5. I do Monday-Chest/Tri, Tuesday-Back/Bi, Thursday-Shouders, Friday-Legs. I was on WBB#1 routine but I didn't think 3 days was enough for me to make the gains I wanted to so I switched to this 4-day split. I think more than that I just wanted to go to the gym more
