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?

    Routine advice

    Hey,

    I work on a four day schedule, the fourth being a rest day. I've been disregarding my back muscles for awhile and generally didn't work them out. I'm planning to start working them, but I'm having a hard time adding them to my routine. Here it is:

    Day 1: Chest/Shoulders
    Day 2: Legs
    Day 3: Biceps/Triceps
    Day 4: Rest

    My bi/tri as well as my chest/shoulders day take a long time for me, so I don't think I would have enough time dedicated for back muscles. Also, when I work my back, it slightly targets biceps as well, so integrating it with legs wouldn't be too great for me.

    I wouldn't want to add another day into my routine, just because I'm getting a lot of progress with this schedule so far.

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Move triceps to day 1

    Put back on day 3

    Do less stuff on Day 1 to shorten it
    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
