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?

    Push/Push v. Push/Pull

    What is everyone's thought on this.

    I've seen people who have as part of a split in the same day chest/tri's or back/bi's. Is that good?

    I feel that if I do chest and tri's on the same day, I'd never get a chance to hit my tri's when they are fresh. (Same thing with bi's on back day). And I don't think I'd want to do tri's before chest--seems counterproductive.

    So maybe a push/pull kind of workout, like back/tri's, chest/bi's?

    Just wondering.

    Every push exercise (bench, military presses etc) all work your tri's, there's a lot of guys who never work their arms and just rely on compound movements., but in a push day you're hittin them the whole time and any tri exercises at the end are really just finishing moves.

    It's the same on push days with your bi's.

    I have always felt that if i worked chest/tris or back/bis i was over working my arms. So i always try to do chest/biceps or back/triceps. Thats just the way i have always done it.
