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?

    HST - a 4th day of Chest?

    I posted this over on the HST site but wanted to hear from my bros here too.

    ----------------------

    "Ok here's my case.

    I'm half way through a HST cycle and my workouts are running on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

    On Tuesday at college I have gym class where sometimes I'm forced to workout.

    My chest happens to be one of my lagging bodyparts, so on tuesday would it be beneficial to just work chest during that class?

    It just so happens I'll be tested for marks during the class for strength on their machine Seated Chest Press, and push-ups. So if I do implement some chest work I guess I should practice those 2 exercise, right?

    Sorta a lot of questions I asked there so to summarize, can a 4th day of just chest work be beneficial to bring it up to par? and how many sets? I was thinking along the lines of 2 sets of Chest Press, 1 set of push-ups, not taken to total failure but close to.

    Opinions appreciated from you HST pros."

    If I were you, I'd do my workouts on sundays, tuesdays, and thursdays if possible. Then on tuesdays you could just workout your chest at school, and do the rest in the gym after school.

    I really dunno what you could do then. If I were to tell you to workout your chest on tues, and then do the rest of your workout on wednesday, i think that would be breaking a principal of HST, because you'd be working out again before the 36 hour mark, and your tri's and chest will be in recovery from the tuesday workout.

    So, I'll leave this question for someone else to answer.

    well after looking at my times there is actually exactly 36 hours between tuesday and wednesdays workouts.

    Tuesdays chest workout would be at 9am.
    Wednesdays full-body workout would be at 9pm.
