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?

    Massage after workout?

    So I'm going back to college and they have a REALLY nice weight room and gym so I will be hoping to lose all the weight again that I gained from being back home for 4 months. I'm getting to thinking that after I lift I will be doing studying and relaxing for the rest of the day/night. So I was thinking of getting a massage chair type thing. Does massage after working out really help your muscles?

    ...plus they feel awesome.

    But yeah, I can imagine that it would be good especially after working out, because it would help to increase nutrient-giving blood flow around your muscles.

    Yea I most likely will buy one of those massage pads to put in my computer chair so that after I weight lift I can write my paper and feel relaxed.

    Massage is CRUCIAL.

    It astounds me how pople will shell out hunderes for suppliment but not a cent on soft tissue work.

    I am a huge fan of deep deeeeep massage and forced streching, today's masage with my coach gave me atleast another 3" of depth in my squat once I got my hips loosened off.

    **** that stupid massage chair, get a proper DEEP TISSUE REMDIAL MASSAGE or a tennis ball and a foam roller.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    I got a foam roller for christmas, well worth it. lovely on the quads, hams, adductors/abbductors after squatting.

    As a massage isnt really possible for me the roller is a good second best.
