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?

    Squatting for the first time - pain in traps/shoulder area?

    I have done barbell squats today for the first time ever and felt pain in the upper back/trap area where you are supposed to put the barbell. Is this acceptable for a total beginner to squats? Maybe over time the body will get used to it.

    Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength is coming soon, so I will learn from that. I am just squatting now looking at a few videos. What is your take on this?
