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?

    All in one day?

    Ok I have been wondering if you could do like your shoulders, biceps, triceps, lats, and chest all in the same day. And then some other day do legs. Like only 3-4 excerises, 3 sets each with 5-8 reps for each muscle. Could you do this or would this lead to overtraining?

    that is quite a bit of work for one workout. if you do 3 sets of 3-4 exercises for each bodypart, you will do well over 40 sets in a single workout. personally, i have been doing a full body workout around 20 sets total, hitting all bodyparts and have found that to be taxing, but it works. more than 40 sets would be insane

    Dan, I think he meant doing several compound lifts to hit all the muscles. Or I might've been mistaken. But if my assumption was correct, yes you could do that.

    I believe this is call the upper/lower split. But you may want to reconsider and lower your exercises and sets. Try it out for a few week or so.

    3-4 exercises per muscle? No.

    3-4 exercises total to hit everything, sure.

    I have to agree with the Admiral here. 40 sets in a single workout sounds pretty high if you are not on juice or have phenomenal genetics. I also do a full body workout once or twice a week doing at or around 20 sets. I used to do splits but I didn't feel like I was recovering enough in between workouts. The full body routine has been working for me for the last year or so and I have been consistently moving up in weights in all lifts.
