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?

    4 Day Split Deads Squats Deads Squats Okay?

    What do you think of the following routine. I just finished a modified WBB1 routine and made good progress. 20kg on my squat and deadlift, 30kg on my flat bench. 40kg on my close grip bench press.

    I put on a bit of fat and so I'm going to lose some weight and try to maintain my strength at its present level. I looked around for a basic 4 day split that incorporated both squats and deads on every workout but couldn't find anything so I made this up.

    I'm going 2 minute rests between sets. I'm a natural lifter. Heavy and Light weeks alternating. Any comments modifications / deletions / additions that you would like to suggest. Thanks for input.

    Might work.

    Why change if you were having success?
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
    "You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial

    I was reading an article here (cant' find it now) that suggested training body parts more then once a week might get better results for a new / intermediate person.

    Maybe it was on Bodybuilding.com but I think it was by Maki. And yeah I was getting a little bored too heh.
