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?

    New routine critique and questions

    Hi all,

    I am putting a routine together... I only want to spend about an hour working out.... I plan to train everyother / every 2 days depending on recovery...

    Day 1 Chest/Shoulders/Triceps

    Day2 Back/Biceps

    Day3 Legs

    each workout will start with 5 mins cardio to warm up followed by stretching and will finish with 10-15 mins cardio and a warm down/stretch.

    Each body part is worked using 2 exercises - compound movement and an 'isolator' for 3 sets of 8-12. Last set being to 'failure'.

    My questions - should shrugs be done on shoulder or back day, and how often to do abs?

    cheers

    I do shrugs on back day. I would do abs no more than twice a week. I personally rarely do abs.

    i have the same exact split as you and been using for awhile now and enjoy it majorly!

    i recently though started doing legs and shoulders together for time constraints on chest/tri day...

    u got a similar outline to mine

    i do quads, hams, calves on day 1 (legs)
    chest, shoulders, tris on day 2
    back, bicep, abs on day 3

    i would do shrugs on shoulder day , but its ur own preference really, can go either way

    do abs at most twice a week, but i'd say do it on bicep n back day, n go full intensity on that, do weighted sit ups n all that
