No confusing muscle as how understand it is changing your routine ie exercises you do. To not let the muscles get used to the same motions and weights over a longer period. So changing up what you do and how you do it.

It is doing exercises,which works more than just one main muscle group,at the same time for better results..thats why push up for example are so effective,u work chest,back n arms at the same time..u get better results than just isolating

Type "muscle confusion" into google and the second or third suggestion is "muscle confusion myth"

I recommend reading up on it more than just one article but here's one to start.

Whether it's a myth or not, your workouts COULD benefit from variety if only to keep YOU interested (your muscles don't get an opinion)

The article I linked has some good points about adequately overloading and resting your muscles to avoid hitting plateaus, or points where you just see no progress. Good luck

Muscle confusion is just a sales pitch for p90x, if you are looking to build muscle just do your routine and try to do one more set than you did last time once you make it to a pre destined amount up the weights then repeat. Then you are working the muscle harder each time which puts more stress on it which will build muscle. this way you will also be able to monitor your gains affectively. It doesn't hurt to change your routine up once in a while to keep it fresh but to often can hurt.

Since it is just a sales pitch that is why there are do many different definitions and so much confusion on it. Is a gimic.
