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?

    Switch to a 3 day split/w extra day???

    Ok, it has been 4 months now that I have been back to hitting the iron hard. I was not able to lift for several years due to a grueling graduate program. The past 4 months my routine has looked something like this

    Day One-- Chest/Tris/Legs

    Day Two--Off

    Day Three -- Shoulders/Bis/Back

    Day Four--Same as Day One--

    Day Five--Same as Day Three---

    Day Six and Seven--Off



    This is what I am considering switching to

    Day One--Chest/Tris/Abs

    Day Two--Off

    Day Three--Back/Legs

    Day Four--Off

    Day 5--Shoulders/Bis/Abs

    Day 6--Off

    Day Seven--Start Over

    One day will get repeated every third week..

    I would appreciate any input???? Thanks

    i would do legs on their own or with a small muscle group, no way i could train them with another large muscle group. There are loads of 3 day routines you could do though

    chest, tri's and bis
    legs
    back and shoulders

    or

    Chest and tri's
    back and bi's
    legs and shoulders

    or

    chest and shoulders
    legs
    back, bi's and tri's

    I have just switched ot the first one i listed and seem to be getting ok with is.

    Just some options for you.

    Hey Ozzymt,

    Cool, I may try the second one you listed. What do your set/reps look like in your routine?

    Current routine looks like this

    Chest, tri's and bi's
    db flyes 2 x 40
    flat bench 1 x 8, 1x 8 +double drop set
    incline hammersmith press 1 x 8 + double drop set
    close grip bench 1 x 8, 2 x 10 second rest pause to failure
    cable push downs 1 x 8, + forced reps and partials
    standing barbell curls 1 x 8 +double drop set
    hammer curls 2 x 10

    Legs
    squats 1 x 6
    leg extensions 2 x 30
    leg press 1 x 8, 1 x 8 + double drop set
    Leg curl 1 x 8 + double drop set
    standing calve raise 1 x 15, 1 x failure
    seated calve raise 1 x 15, 1 x failure

    Back and shoulders
    deads 1 x 6
    bent over bb rows 6/6/6 10 second rest pause
    lat pull downs 1 x 8, 1 x 8 + double drop set
    shrugs 1 x 8 forced reps + partials + static holds
    Military press 1 x 8, 1 x 8 + Double drop set
    lateral raises 2 x 10

    this routine is based around the principles or Paul Borreson and Dorain Yates using 1 or 2 sets to failure. It is purely geared aty hypertrophy.

    Squats and deads are left out every 4th week to allow some recovery time.

    Exercises rarely change, but failure techniques like drop sets an rest pause etc are changed from time to time.
