The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Back to my log.

    I've been training, just not logging much, as my workouts have been laid back and nothing to write about.

    The knee is still a big "?". MRI said "possible floating cartilage" WTF. I can have it scoped to see for sure, but I'm holding off a little longer to see if it gets better.

    I squat (hopefully I can) tonight, I will log later wish me luck!

    thanks

    thanks Travis.
    I'm not sure if choked is the right term. It wasn't doubled, just chocked on the frame that runs under the pad and up over the outside of the the first 3 45's.
    it was pretty heavy at the top, plus i used a Ivanko olympic bar that has a lot of spring so it was bouncing around pretty good

    I actually video taped my entire leg workout today. nothing spectacular, but I thought i'd see how it turned out. I should have it ready in a few days.

    Monday sept 22

    I left my log at the gym. here's what I remember:

    squats
    top set of 415x10 belt and 20 year old knee wraps (for real)
    drop set raw no belt 235x25

    1 legged leg curls, 3 sets of 10

    1 legged toe raises 4 sets of 20

    glute ham sit ups 3 sets of 15

    knee felt good, i've been rehabbing it myself with ice, aleve, foam roller, massage therapy.

    It's getting better.

    Actually, it's better. I decieded against getting it scoped, and have been doing my own therapy. I've been using the foam roller on my quads, IT band, and outer calfs, along with massage therapy, ice and Aleve 2x day. All of this has helped alot. I believe it's just tight tendons and ligaments pulling at the knee. I've used ultrasound too, but it doesn't seem to help, actually I think it makes it worse. I'm not sure why.
    Thanks for asking!

    skipped shoulders. starting next week i'm moving them to back day and bringing my bi work to my chest day...i think! i like doing shoulders today, but i think it doesnt go well with the raw stuff. I don;t like doing bi's on wed because it effects my friday deadlift. soooo that's why i'm not 100% sure.
