The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    It seems kinda high on volume, and the problem I have with the split ties into the delts/chest/triceps part. You work your delts on day 2, then your chest on day 3, then your triceps on day 4. If your delts are still recovering on day 3, your chest workout will suffer. Also, your triceps will also suffer on day 4, as they are still recovering from your chest workout on day 3. It just seems like he made this split so it's different from all the other 3 or 4 day splits out there.

    So with dumbell press for delts, then all the benching, then a dedicated triceps workout, you are working that particular muscle 3 days in a row.

    Just my thoughts.

    Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he's carrying a beautiful rose in his beak, and also he's carrying a very beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you're drunk.

    It looks decent, if you want to work abs & calves 2 days apart and only have 1 day off every 5 days.

    The excercises are okay, except there's no deadlifts.


    Edit: ElPietro's right about the tricep thing.

    I would have the hardest freakin time working chest the day after delts, but that's just me.

    He does twice the volume for biceps than hamstrings. Odd if you ask me, but I'm not going to argue with this guy.
