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?

    To lift or not lift. That is the question.

    Holy hell. Wbb1.1 day one killed my legs. I have the 1st leg day DOMS big time and I'm due to train legs again tomorrow. My question is should I train legs again tomorrow and go with a sub par day at the gym or should I would until my wheels can roll again? They aren't just a Tad sore. They hurt to touch and im walking like I have a dong in butt. (or how I would imagine someone with a dong in their butt would walk, cause I don't actually have one. To clarify.)

    Thanks.

    Wait if its only been 1 day since legs why are you doing them again. WBB1 was designed so you do each group once a week.

    WBB1.1... It's a different routine than wbb1.

    OP, I'd go lift anyway. Your body will adjust eventually. If you're still really sore tomorrow just squat light, don't hit it too hard.

    Once you start lifting, you won't notice the soreness. But as soon as you're done you'll be sore as hell again, probably even more sore.

    This man speaks the truth.

    But again, don't be a baby about it.. Suck it up and give your body time to adapt to the program.

    Lift anyway, but slash the volume on all exercises significantly. Massage the **** out of your quads afterwards. Wake up the next day pain-free.

    Who told you to do that? You should never stretch before. Stretch after yes, before is bad it can lead to injury. If you are very sore before I would suggest jumping on a bike for 5 minutes before, I find it helps warm up the legs and makes them less sore at the same time.

    Stretching before isn't bad as long as you warmup properly before hand. Cold stretching can be dangerous. Just make sure you get your blood going before you start your workout to try and flush out as much lactic acid as possible.

    Dynamic warmups are best. There's nothing wrong with some static stretching before lifting as long as you warm up properly before stretching and warm up with weights properly before lifting heavy.

    All the good powerlifters that I've ever met stretch before lifting.
