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?

    single leg work outs

    So i had this idea, just wanted to run it by the community and get your thoughts...

    I do WBBI except I only take 1 day off (hold off on the flamming)
    Mon: Chest/Back
    Tues: Legs
    Weds: Shoulders/Tri/Bi
    Thursday: off
    Friday: Chest back
    Sat: Legs
    Sun: Shoulders/Tri/Bi

    Since my leg work outs arn't that far apart, would it be bennificial to do single leg work outs i.e signle leg press (alternating legs of corse) single leg curl, single leg hack? Just a thought

    Also, the reason I work out like this is because for my size i am very weak. I havn't worked out for about 4 years, so the weights I lift arn't really that heavy (i know thats a realative term) and I am just focusing on form.

    Like one leg wednesday then the other on saturday? That's about the dumbest thing I've ever heard... You should only need one leg day a week anyway. I'd go :

    Mon:chest/back
    Tues:shoulders/tri/bi
    Wed:legs
    Thur:chest back
    Fri: shoulders/tri/bi
    Sat: off
    Sun: off

    I don't see any reason for that, it would just make your workouts too long. You should only be in the gym for about an hour, after that the intensity is gone. And 5 days is pushing it, don't do 6 days.

    ^^ just because he wants to work out his whole upper body two times (some muscles 4 times) and legs 1 time a week doesn't mean he can't give advice

    Doing some unilateral work would probably be a good idea, but squatting more than once/week should not be a problem. If it is too much, you should lower the intensity and/or volume of one of the training sessions.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
