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?

    soreness=success?

    sometimes when i work out the next day i feel extremely sore. oppositely, after other training days i feel little to no soreness. however, this does not seem to correlate with the intensity of the workout. so does soreness actually equal a more productive workout and greater muscle growth, or is it just a result of other factors that may have come into play (diet, perhaps)?

    After a good back or chest day I get really sore, However, my arms almost never get sore, regardless of if I lift to failure or not.

    I'm pretty sure soreness does not equate a killer workout.

    Don't use soreness as a measure of quality of your workout.

    Soreness doesn't mean much if anything.
