The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    torn rotator cuff?

    A long time ago, I had a torn rotator cuff, it was like 5 years ago. I am now in my 5th month of lifting again and I have this terrible pain in the same shoulder. I don't think anything is hurt really bad, I still train, but I have been going a little lighter on the load, though. I heard that if you are sore it's still good to work it out, rather than sit around, however I don't want to make it worse. I don't think it's the same injury from a while ago, that should've healed already, right? What should I do?

    Well, anyway, I have found that I don't really have the pain when I workout, just all the rest of the time, not so much pain as "extreme conscientiousness" of that area however, I am applying the RICE method, sort of, on and off. When I workout it doesn't hurt, but I get a lot of popping in my shoulder area. I think I lifted too much, my thoughts are that I am going to continue at a lighter load, and see if the pain subsides.

    I saw a shoulder specialist. He got me to do some specific exercises and the shoulder slowly got better.

    could be scar tissue or bursitis. depending on what it is injections may help. strengthening the 4 rotator muscle will also help. You need to see a physician
