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?

    Help developing a 3-day split

    After a lot of consideration, I've come up with this 3-day split (a 4-day split was just too spread out for me). Let me know what you think, all comments appreciated.

    Day 1: chest/triceps
    Day 2: legs/biceps
    Day 3: off
    Day 4: back/shoulders
    Day 5: off
    Day 6: start over again

    The only thing i'm wonderin is, do i have enough rest between my back/shoulders day and my chest/triceps day, since shoulders, chest and triceps overlap some.

    If anyone has any better suggestions for a 3-day split, I'm all ears.

    I don't see the point in having a rest day until you have worked out all muscle groups.

    Day 1: Chest/Abs
    Day 2: Arms/Shoulders
    Day 3: Legs/Back/Abs
    Day 4: Rest
    Day 5: Start Over

    96 hours of rest for each muscle group before hitting it directly again is plenty for a young person imho.

    You may or may not already be familiar with these routines. They work and are a 3 day split. Most productive routine I have ever done.
