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?

    Forearm pain, in desperate help!

    About 2 months ago i started having this pain in my right forarm, the upper area closer to the elbow, and the pain was pretty bad to begin with but I continued to workout but could not do any bicep curls because of the pain. After three weeks of working out with the pain I decided to stop working out and let it heal (thinking time would solve it), it has now been 5 weeks that i havn't lifted any weights, the pain has gotten better, but sudden movements or wierd random positions really hurt (holding a laptop with my right hand) and i still can't do bicep curls. Before the injury I had been working out for 11 months straight. any help would be much appreciated because this pain is getting really annoying.

    thanks

    I wouldn't take much advice from the internet on this. Go see a doctor. Best to get it taken care of now before you agitate it with some potentially bad internet advice.

    So you stopped working out legs/back because you couldn't do bicep curls? Hmm..

    lifting your back would still agrivate this type of injury since you use your arms. I would definatly go see a doc

    I have actually encountered a similar (can't say if it the same) problem. Any type of curl motion would KILL, releasing the weight was the worse part.

    Whether or not it is related, I started really paying attention to my grip training so I could ditch the straps for DL's and rackpulls. I have also noticed the pain is much less severe and almost gone. I have no way of proving if this was due to the grip training, just my theory.


    Also, to all the people giving him **** and useless advice grow up and post something helpful. Honestly if his pain was as bad as mine I wouldn't blame him for being concerned and taking a break from lifting.

    Yeah that was my concern as well. If it wasn't for the fact that it has been going away I would of seen my doctor about it. It would even hurt to let go of DB's... sometimes I honestly just did not want to let go.

    Well during the time that I was working out with the pain triceps never hurt that much at all and the pain was unnoticable. but when it was bicep curls it killed. I'm gonna go see a doctor tomorrow and ask about naproxen. thanks so much for the help this things been bothering me for wayy too long.

    I had this EXACT same problem before coming to college. My doctor told me that it was tendinosis, and told me to wait five weeks before doing things that would cause pain (curls, grip work, playing the drums) in my forearm.

    For the most part, I took his advice, but I continued working unrelated muscle groups, running, et cetera. I took aleve and advil (naproxen and ibuprofen, both NSAIDs) when the pain got bad, but it's not really an inflammation problem, so I think any OTC painkiller will work fine.

    I was worried that the tendon damage would never go away, but the problem slowly faded to nonexistence over the course of the next three months. I was lifting three days a week and cutting weight at the time, so I assume that my forearm would have taken much less time to heal if I had been more sedentary.

    Hopefully, the doctor will give you some good news tomorrow, but, if not, it doesn't have to ruin your entire workout routine.
