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?

    Power cleans are more of a full-body exercise. They use both the posterior chain and much of the upper body as well as making use of CONTROLLED momentum. If you're doing a body-building type split that isolates certain muscle groups on certain days, then power cleans are not going to fit neatly into any day.

    You might want to go lighter and do them as a warm-up exercise on either leg day or back/arms day if you want to stick with your split.

    I do them on deadlift day. But like Ice said, that's not a traditional body-part based split that I do.

    Like she said, leg or back day is when they'd fit the best.

    I'd do them on back/traps day. For me, that's where they would fit best. I used to alternate cleans and deadlifts every other week on back day.

    Another question

    I currently do, Deads, Rows and reverse flys for back day. Would adding power cleans be to much?
