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?

    Wanna Be Big Routine Question

    I have seen the wanna be big routine and I have one question about it. Will training the barbell bench press and deadlifts on the same day hurt progress, since they are both real taxing exercises? Is there another split that would leave all of the 3 main powerlifts on different days? Maybe something like this:
    Monday:Chest and Shoulders
    Wednesdays: Legs
    Fridays: Back, Biceps, and Triceps
    Thanks alot guys,
    Robert Boback

    Sure.
    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

    Why not try...

    Back/Biceps
    Chest/Shoulders/Tris
    Legs (Or maybe eliminate shoulders 1st time, put them here.)

    This way you can train both with maximal recovery time on your lower half for deads/squats. Very in depth first reply though, surprised there was anything left to say.

    i've gone a week with the WBB routine.....it is quite taxing, but i love it...

    but some of the exercises that use free weights (ex. bench press) i've simply replaced with using the machines

    its ok to substitute machines for free weights if they are GOOD machines. Most are really poorly designed, then again some that i am using at my current gymn are the most kickass ive seen!
