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?

    Depends.

    They might help, might not.
    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

    Well, if you are seeing growth and gains and accomplishing your goals then by all means keep doing what you are doing. However, I'm going to give my 2 cents. I do not like the idea of once a week targets. I believe undertraining comes into play on many occasions, and if this does not happen I still believe that you are not lifting to your potential with this workout. Muscle recovery usually has take its course in a period of around 48 hours. I suppose if you are going to failure on multiple sets and doing gobs of volume on each bodypart then you will need the extra time to grow. However, it seems that you could make it a little easier on yourself and spread that volume over a couple of days, and the quality of sets will also be greater at the same time. Sorry, starting to rant and ramble. I just believe that by working each group more than once a week you are maximizing your gains and adaptation (which is a good thing).
