The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    How Does This Split Look?

    Day One: Chest/Triceps
    Day Two: Rest
    Day Three: Back/Biceps
    Day Four: Rest
    Day Five: Shoulders
    Day Six: Legs

    Basically a push/pull/legs routine, but I want to see if anyone out there thinks there is a better way of organizing this split. Please back any suggestions up with some sort of reasoning (i.e. don't post your personal preference). Thanks.

    Any reason why? That is a lot of work for day one.

    It does seem like a lot of work, but when working out your chest you are working your delts and triceps at the same time. This way you won't be doing as much direct shoulder/tricep exercises.

    I disagree, your split looks good. Don't change it.

    Re: How Does This Split Look?

    It depends on the amount of volume you are training with.

    For example I train chest,shoulders and tri's together but I do a total of 6 sets for this whole workout day.. If you are doing moderate to highish volume it would be too much work yes..

    I agree with yates it looks good I would not change it.. I have too worked with a split exactly the same as this with good results.. I am assuming day 7 is a rest day right? If so it looks like a good split to me. If I was to return to a 4 day split again I would do this one too.
