The Myth Of “Muscle Confusion Workouts”

The idea of “muscle confusion training” has been a popular bodybuilding concept for quite some time.

What is muscle confusion?

The idea here is that your muscles and body will quickly adapt and stop responding to the same training program after a few weeks, and therefore you need to constantly switch up your training variables, such as exercise selection and rep ranges, in order to “shock” your muscles and force them to build additional size and strength.

As a result, many trainees who buy into this concept of “muscle confusion workouts” will end up constantly switching up their workout style from week to week trying to spark new gains, but ultimately end up becoming even more stagnant as a result.

When it all comes down to it, your muscles respond to overload and progression and simply adapt to the specific movements you present them with. Your muscle tissue does not have a mind of its own, and switching from a dumbbell to a cable or from a leg press to a lunge is not going to magically “shock” the tissue into new growth.

If it were really true that muscle confusion workouts were necessary, then it wouldn’t be possible for powerlifters to train an entire lifetime doing deadlifts, benches and squats and still experience ongoing progress.

If you want to switch your workout up for the sake of variety or to try something different then that’s totally fine, but don’t buy into the concept that you need to constantly “shock” or “confuse” your muscles from week to week. As long as you train hard and your nutrition plan is on point, you can definitely make ongoing progress on the same routine for literally years on end without even worrying about the concept of muscle confusion training at all.

  4. aaawwe man you guys were beating a dead fucken horse in this video lol!! @
    the ending! haha always make me laugh. oh and yall made some gaaaaainz
    since 11. especially in the hair department srs

  5. Muscle confusion is such bullshit, to confuse my muscles, I tell them that
    it’s chest day, and then quickly run over to the squat rack and bust out 7
    squats before my pecs can figure out what’s going on

  6. the more muscle you have the more pussy you get? Phil heath must be hitting
    ALL KINDSSSS a sugerwalls

  7. jimmy struthers up the way told him that if he annihilates his chest bis
    and tris everyday for a year it’ll be like he trained them for 10 years
    consistently and ate good, clean, and high quality foods.

  8. Have you experienced “Epic Max Muscle?” (look for it on Google) It is a
    quick way to get ripped fast.

  9. I appreciate the vid. Like Youtube because of this kind of material.My
    homeboy was formerly bullied. He said he was intending to get bigger muscle
    and strength. I did not believe him. Until inside of weeks he added 40lbs
    of genuine lean muscle mass. He used the Muscle Building Bible – Google it.
    No-one dares to bully the man nowadays. I registered the other day. See
    what goes on. Plus this mans emails are great…

  10. Have you done the complete P90X program? I doubt it. I have for many years
    and it works great. But a lot of stuff out there works if you stick with it
    and do it right and keep your diet as clean as possible.

  11. I done p90X and insanity and they are not that great.. For the simple fact
    that you can get all of that type of work out at the gym.. Don’t waist your

  12. Today, when I said to my trainer that I wasnt following the new routine,
    and I kept doing my former train plan for superior limbs, he said I
    couldn’t do that cause if I kept doing the same exercises for much time, my
    muscles were going to stop growing. And my gym isnt even considered a bad
    one in my region or anything. Sad to see there are yet a lot of
    professionals, even recently graduated (who should have the most recent
    information from studies), believing in these myths. And of course, these
    are the kind of self assured people who wouldnt even consider your argument
    on the subject because he is graduated in the area and you are just a
    random dude who picks your informations from random guys in the net. I had
    already seen studies on the subject, and your video just gave me more
    confidence that my trainer is wrong, thank you Sean.

  13. Hey Sean. Would it be counter-productive to switch up the grips for
    pull-ups and rows (i.e., alternating between overhand pull-ups and
    chin-ups, alternating between overhand- and underhand-grip rows)? I’ve
    been considering doing it so that I can be strong in all those variations
    of these pulls. But perhaps I should change that more like every 2 months?


  14. Muscle confusion is a joke. Ive stuck to the same program for the past 4
    and a half years while making a few minor adjustments only to target a
    different area of the muscle while using progressive overload and im
    killing it. Great vid as always, keep debunking these stupid myths!

  15. Thanks Sean. I have always wanted to know the answer to that question but
    never had someone to ask. There is soo much bull around. Thanks

  16. Can’t say for sure because of the proprietary blend. Basic ingredient
    profile. From what I saw it was $80 a bottle which is insane.

  17. Wow, one of my buddies is a big p90x user and if he found out muscle
    confusion was just a myth it would be the same as a kid finding out there
    is no santa claus lol. Great info as always sean.

  18. Yeah man. Sometimes it can be an issue of wording, but if you want to
    “confuse” the muscle so to speak, just keep adding weight to the bar over

  19. I already told you. You are smart if you understand you need to eat right
    at your age to kill your belly. btw!but ye one of my friend working in
    fitness field suggested me this 7 secret food items to kill our jelly
    belly. have a look here

  20. Thanks for the info in this video! You mentioned that rest however, could
    affect ones gains. I have a question with that, what if I sleep real late
    but still I get it adequately(like I sleep 3am-11am for example) will it
    affect my workout negatively? Thanks again!

  21. Why is it so hard to get a straight up answer about body building? Thanks
    for the great vid and info Sean

  22. Probably even more bull than you’re aware. When you are in the industry and
    see what really goes on it’s pretty eye-opening/disappointing.

  23. I find you’re vids credible and I’d like to know more from you, especially
    about the proper way of rest for muscle gain. I hope you could make a video
    about that some other time… Keep up the good work!

  24. I been following you since “TTABM,” I’m glad you turned that info into a
    free website, refined it and eliminated the myths. With your info you
    changed my life man. Thanks Sean!

  25. I am the same way, only even later haha. It is out of synch with the body’s
    natural rhythm so like me you’re probably more tired overall, but it
    shouldn’t affect you too much to the point that you have to change it.

  26. Thanks mate, keep the videos going. can you do a review on Albutarex, just
    maybe by looking at the label?

  27. I disagree with you here I’m afraid. By changing up your exercises and rep
    ranges, etc different types of muscle fibre are stimulated. This results in
    new growth from the targeted muscle. This is why throwing in drop sets,
    supersets, etc from time to time is extremely useful…it stimulates
    different/more muscle fibres…resulting in more growth.
