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?

    Shoulders hurt...a lot...from shrugs

    is that normal? i havent really had this pain before, but i did do more weight than normal.

    i did the barbell with weights...heres what i did:

    135x10
    225x10
    275x10
    285x10
    295x10

    does that seem normal, like i said, ive never had it hurt like this, at first it seemed like i slept on it the wrong way and i thought id go away in the morning, but it didnt and i thought what it could be and i remembered it could have been the shrugs.

    so, what do you guys say...?


    i appreciate the help

    Is it your SHOULDERS that hurt? Or is it your TRAPS that hurt?

    Is it DOMS?
    Is it a sharp pain?
    Dull pain?
    Does it only hurt through a certain range of movement?
    Does it constantly hurt?
    Does anything you do make it worse?

    how is your form? That is a lot of weight for your bw. Are you rolling your shoulders or shruging straight up and down?

    the lifting trainer says i am doing them right and he definetly knows his stuff so i believe him. im pulling straight up and going down, not too fast but not real slow.

    im not going to lie, im pretty strong for my size, and im very low on bf if that helps clarify...

    Thats alot of sets...and alot of weight for your size.

    Just curious when do you deadlift?

    Icyhot, Naproxen Na, a hot shower, plenty of Vitamin C and a massage...and check your ego next time when stackin' those weights on.

    Who cares what other people think. If it will better your training, why not do it. Most people would love to have their lifts video taped. It helps in more ways than 1. You get to see yourself lift and can adjust accordingly, and also get input from others.

    As we speak my traps are very sore. However, I love it. I did shrugs very hard the other day and im paying for it in a good way today. The bone where my neck starts (I'm guessing the first vertibre) also is hurting today from holding the bar while doing squats/calf raises.

    I dont think lifting more shows your muscles are growing...

    Lifting more will generaly make your muscles grow due to more stress.

    If you want to lift alot more try doing tripels until you get to 350-400 and repping out.

    This always put the most weight on my shrug VS doing sets of 10 up to your heavy set.

    if your form is alright, just rest and it should go away. but, rest. but your form is probably wrong.
