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?

    a 4 day split w/ a chest/back combo day will never qualify as good in my humble opinion.
    Chest and back are 2 of your largest muscle groups and should be treated accordingly. But of course there are plenty that would disagree...

    I've tried doing chest/back, it isn't that hard depending on what you do and how many sets. I perfer to seperate them now though.
    My brother and I were brutal. I once chased him around the house with a spoon that I put on the burner. I burned that little pricks leg. -sharkall2003

    I wouldn't consider a routine that has a day for biceps and forearms 'the best ever'.

    Put back on that day, move shoulders and triceps to the chest day, perhaps.
    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
    "You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial

    Theres nothing wrong with doing chest and back on the same day but it is silly to have a day devoted to biceps and forearms. I would combine back with biceps and forearms or do biceps and forearms with shoulders and triceps.

    i have a day dedicated to biceps and forearms only, and it works for me. But, i do more biceps than you have listed. try to add another exercise maybe, unless your bi's feel completely swollen after doing just those two exercises. as far as chest/back do whatever feel right, everyone is different.

    Doesn't mean that's the best way to train though.

    When you do your chest/back day, do you complete your chest workout then complete your back workout? Looks like you do. I found that if I work chest and back together, I get better results if I do a chest exercise, then a back, then a chest, then a back, etc until I'm done. Gives your chest a bit of a rest while you work back then you can hit your next chest exercise with some heavy weight. If I do it this way, I can do the same weight for my chest and back combo days as I can if I do them on their own days.

    Plenty of people have plenty of things, like buttholes but does that mean they don't stink? :P
