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?

    Biceps + Triceps on own day?

    I heard somewhere that you dont need to give your arm their own day because they get worked out from other movements is that true? Because I give mine their own day.

    Ditto. No matter how much I bench, my triceps never hurt much if any.

    Same goes for hangcleans. My forearms used to kill after doing them when I first started out; now I get nothing no matter what the weight.

    Give your arms their own day (I'd add in shoulders). This will help your other exercises since your arms will get stronger quicker.

    If I did Shoulders on my Bicep/Tricep day I would be wreaked. It seems a little bit too much to do for one day.

    I work whole upper body in one go. Say no i do not give arms there only day.

    aching does always equate to growth.

    It depends. There are various routines and most work to a degree. I have given biceps and triceps there own day in the past and it worked pretty well. I have also done the complete opposite so you see it doesn't really matter that much

    i dunno about giving them there own day.....They are not really a big enough muscle to give them there own day IMO. I can see working them after a major muscle group. Maybe try doing my compounds with heavier weight. Thats when they really started to get hit for me:whoknows:

    I give my arms their own day, just because if i dont i do not feel like i have worked them as hard. I used to do the chest tri and then back and bi. but i never really got a real good arm work out doing that.

    While i do give them their own day, i get a much more satisfying Bi pump from back day, i think it has to do with the heavier weights being used.

    I don't do it. But you have to find what works for you.
