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, opinions needed

    Hi all.

    I am currently trying out this new 4 day split which I really like.

    chest/bi's
    off
    shoulders/tris
    off
    back/calves
    legs
    off

    So im thinking about doing 8 excercises on the first 2 days (4 and 4) 3rd day maybe 6 (4 and 2) and 4 on the last day.

    Is this a bit too much, im more concerned about the first 2 days of 8 excercises. Is this overworking?

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks

    Your routine is identical to mine and it works great for me. But you are right, you are doing too much work on your bi's and tri's. I recommend 3-4 exercises for chest, then 2-3 exercises for bi's. Similarly for shoulders + tri's.

    Lift heavy, with good form, and your arms will be tapped out at the end.
