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?

    High frequency chins and millies?

    I'm back from uni' for the summer, and was thinking of trying a new style of high frequency training. The thing is that I wont be able to go to the gym more than twice a week. I figure I'll work chest and legs on both of those days, taking advantage of the squat rack and bench.
    I have a chin-up bar at home, aswell as a small weight set. I don't know much about high frequency training but I was thinking of doing chins up to four times a week, and standing millitary presses three or possibly four times a week, at home.
    I have read one or two good things about high frequency training and wanted to take adavantage of being at home to improve my millies and chins. I reckon if I break up the chins into three light sets plus one heavy a week, then I wont be too overworked. I'm not sure about the millies though. Is it ok to do millies three times a week on top of bench twice a week, provided I keep the volume low (3-4 sets each session)?
    To be honest this is kind of a 'make me a routine' thread, but I can't seem to find much info on high frequency training here on wannabebig.

    My goals are increased strength and hypertrophy (like pretty much everyone). My chinning is good, can chin with +50% bodyweight for one or two reps. My millies aren't so good 6-7 reps at 135lbs (I have a 275lb bench). So I want to be able to MP my own bodyweight (190lbs), and work towards a double bodyweight chin.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    High frequency work is fine as long as you do not exceed your recovery capabilities.

    Read Pavel's stuff, especially Grease the Groove

    If I were to start from scratch as a young 13 year old again, I would do every press, squat, and perhaps deadlifts, for my entire career with chains. -- Dan John
