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?

    4 day split -vs- my 3 day split

    I, like Girn, have a 3-day-split. I'm wondering if this is okay, because I heard some of you guys talking about how sometimes people with 3-day-splits overwork themselves and don't gain very much.

    Should I move to 4-day-split?

    Here's my current schedule:

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Monday (Chest, Tri, Bi)

    Bench Press (3 x 8-10)
    Peck Deck (3 x 8)
    Dips (3 x 6)
    Tricep Pushdown (3 x 8-10)
    Bicep Curls (3 x 8-10)
    Hammer Curls (3 x 8-10)

    Daily:
    Pushups (4 x 15)
    Sit-ups (4 x 15)

    Tuesday (Running, Back, Traps, Delts)

    Run 1-2 miles
    Lat Pulldown (3 x 8-10)
    Back Rows (3 x 8)
    Shoulder Shrugs (3 x 8-10)
    Military Press (3 x 8)
    Deltoid Raises (3 x 8-10)

    Daily:
    Pushups (4 x 15)
    Sit-ups (4 x 15)

    Wednesday (Legs, Abs)

    Leg Press (3 x 10)
    Calf Raises (3 x 10)
    Hamstring Curls (3 x 10)
    Sit-ups (3 x 12, on a bench @ an angle)

    Daily:
    Pushups (4 x 15)
    Sit-ups (4 x 15)

    Thursday (Running, Chest, Tri, Bi)

    Run 1-2 miles
    Bench Press (3 x 8-10)
    Peck Deck (3 x 8)
    Dips (3 x 6)
    Tricep Pushdown (3 x 8-10)
    Bicep Curls (3 x 8-10)
    Hammer Curls (3 x 8-10)

    Daily:
    Pushups (4 x 15)
    Sit-ups (4 x 15)

    Friday (Back, Traps, Delts)

    Lat Pulldown (3 x 8-10)
    Back Rows (3 x 8)
    Shoulder Shrugs (3 x 8-10)
    Military Press (3 x 8)
    Deltoid Raises (3 x 8-10)

    Daily:
    Pushups (4 x 15)
    Sit-ups (4 x 15)

    Saturday (Running)

    Run 1-2 miles

    Daily:
    Pushups (4 x 15)
    Sit-ups (4 x 15)

    Sunday: Rest
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It's pretty much a 3-day split with Saturday taking it kind of easy (not doing legwork on the machines).

    If I wanted to, I could slow things down a little and create a 4-day split. What do you guys think?
