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?

    too many days without break?

    I am on BGB, and i am finding it a little hard to find 4 days in the week to lift. I get out of school at 1:15 and go to work at 2:00 3-4 days a week. So my question is when i have days off of work i usually always lift. (and weekends before work)


    ok I realized I just ranted i'll get to the question

    Is it bad to lift 3 days in a row without a break? If i did do that, i would have a 3-4 day break. I guess i could go in the morning before school, but that would be hard and if i could avoid it i would like to.

    Yes, it can be hard finding the time to go with a consistent 4 day split.

    Personally I sometimes miss a day and make up for it with 3 days in a row. It kind of screws up your whole routine when you miss a single day.

    I would say go for it. Especially if youre considering taking 3 days off afterwards. Though I cant comment on whether this would be overtraining or not since there is quite a bit of volume on that routine. Perhaps someone with more wisdom will answer.

    Id say it beats skipping a workout or modifying your entire split just to take advantage of your "normal" days off.
