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?

    Day off during week......

    My workout is as follows

    mon:chest+abs
    tues:back
    wed:arms+calves
    thru:legs
    fri:shoulders+lats

    so I want one weekday off from lifting so i feel less sore and more recovered. Between what days would be best to take a day off. I was thinking maybe chest and back day?

    The best day is the one that fits best into your schedule. Are you still gonna lift 5 days, or are you cutting back to four?

    Obviously, Wednesday. I don't see why you don't do arms on your back day and calves on your leg day -- it seems like a better organized routine.

    I would do:

    Mon Legs
    Tues Arms
    Wed Off
    Thu Shoulders
    Fri Back
    Sat: Chest

    Or you could switch Mon & Sat

    The OP is having issues with recovery and soreness, so I wouldn't suggest three days of upperbody work in a row. Switching Mon and Sat is probably a better idea.

    Take your day off on Wednesday, lift arms Saturday morning. If you really want to get smart about it -- and help with recovery, do an upper on Thurs, legs on Friday, and then your other upper on Saturday.
