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?

    I'd like to see a rest day in there, but looks ok.
    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

    suggestions

    Bear in mind that even though you are training different body parts on consecutive days, you only have one recovery system-one nervous system, one endocrine system, one immue system-and these can only be taxed so much before they will shut down your muscle building efforts. I would suggest you move towards a full body or at least a push-pull, upper-lower body routine, done 2-3 times a week. Focus on the compound lifts-full squats, deadlifts, bent over rows, overhead press, dips-ones that work more than one part of the body. Dont hold back on any set, but push for all you are worth. keep a training journal and strive to add weight and reps each time. Do a wide variety of reps-high rep squats will change your physique over time. Eat 5-6 times a day, small frequent meals, with wholesome food, drink plenty of water.
