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?

    Are you a pitcher?
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Personally I think training abs 3 times a week is a bit much, and I wouldn't train ANYTHING on a rest day, even abs. Other than that it looks pretty good, have you started it yet?

    IMO, a pitcher should limit shoulder and chest work (pushing) during the season.

    I wouold definatley suggest you do plenty of posterior chain work, and plenty of rear delt work.

    Let me take a look at some stuff, and see if I can make some other recommendations.

    OK.

    Off season, focus on getting stronger, and work on your skills.

    You might want to look around at some Pling routines, and routines designed for baseball players.

    At your age (16), i would also have a BIG emphasis on GPP - conditioning, core work, posterior chain work, etc.
