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?

    Need Help Optimizing Weekly Routine/Legs

    Quick background: I have some issues with my legs that prevent me from doing a full blown leg workout. Right now my leg workout consists of this:

    - 3 sets of 6-8 DB squats
    - 3 sets of 8 one-leg calf raises
    - 3 sets of 8 straight-legged deadlift (not 100% leg-related, I know, but I lump it in with legs)

    Anyway, it's a very lean leg workout, I know. But for medical reasons that I don't have the time to get into now, let's just accept that I can't do any more than that.

    So here's my problem: I work arms/shoulders on monday and chest/back on wednesday. I can do that workout just fine. So I have two really excellent upper-body days a week, followed by one kind of weak lower-body day a week (I workout 3 days as week total as you can see).

    My question is, since my leg routine can't really be improved, should I add something else to that day as well? Perhaps some extra arm/chest stuff? Even though I don't have any real choice, I feel like the leg day is almost wasted, leaving me with only two full-intensity workout days a week.

    That looks like a pretty decent leg workout actually... Shouldn't need much more. What's the rest of your routine look like?

    Why not tell us what these "medical reasons" are? Or is it just Idontlikedoinglegsitis?

    Anyway, just push it as heavy as you can and it'll be sufficient
