The Muscle Confusion Myth


I am sure that most of you have heard of the muscle confusion theories. The idea is to change exercises and set and rep schemes on a regular basis. P90X is a prime example of this. Here are the top 3 quotes I usually hear about muscle confusion: “You’ve got to change your routine a lot or your muscles will get used to the same one and stop growing.”

“You’ve got to ‘trick’ your muscles and keep them guessing.”

“If muscle growth hits a plateau, you have to ‘shock’ the tissue in order to resume progress.”
