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?

    My upper/lower split--what do ya think?

    Lately, I've been doing an upper /lower split twice a week: Monday, upper, Tues Lower, Wed off, Thurs upper, Friday lower. Typical stuff.

    Well, I'm now playing volleyball on Wednesdays. I was thinking of not doing a lower body workout the day before I'm going to be running and jumping.

    So I was thinking about doing:

    Lower
    Upper
    Volleyball
    Upper
    Lower

    Any thoughts? I can't see any reason why this would be detrimental to any progress.

    It looks fine. Does volleyball make your lower sore the next day? I can see not doing lower the day before volleyball...but the day after might be ok..if not then your split looks ok to me.

    Or try Mon-lower, Tues-upper, Wed-Volleyball, Thurs-off, Fri-lower, Sat-upper, Sun-off.

    Weekends are out, because my gym is up where I work, an hour away.
