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?

    Push/Pull routine

    I know that push/pull routine is. Some muscles are made to push some made to pull. But why do alot of people use push/pull routines.

    Its recommended for beginners. Push/pull/legs. Its easier n your body, IMO.

    Because you can do all your push movements (bench, dips, skulls etc.) on one day. Then you do all your pulls (rows, curls, chins) on another. Basically, I think it helps keep you from overtraining. If you were to bench one day, you would involve your tri's. Then if you were to work tri's two days later (which like benching, they push) you might overtrain them.

    Same goes for your pulls. If you rowed on monday, you would involve your biceps. THen if you curled wednesday, you would hit your bi's again.

    I've always wondered why the WBB routine isn't push/pull. Push/Pull isn't necessarily for beginners. I would more likely associate a whole-body routine with beginners, but that ain't necessarily so, either.

    Push pull trains your body as in integrated system.

    Effective, and efficient.
    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
