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?

    Best remedies to get rid of lat pull?

    noticed a deep right lat pull, along my spine. Hurts when I type, or when I pick something up, and when I go to put something down it (the lat) pretty much just fails.

    what happens when you do a light stretch?? find a honey to rub some flexall 454 or something on it and of course lay low on it for a week or so. i am not an expert, but try it and see.... good luck!
    Don't just call me pessimist. Try and read between the lines. I can't imagine why you wouldn't Welcome any change, my friend. I wanna see it all come down. suck it down. flush it down.

    you have a disproportionation between the front of ur upper body and ur upper back. i really dont know what do when u get a lat pull but i know that once it heals, you should really focus on ur upper back strength and size

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
    Romans 7:14-25

    Same as for any other muscle strain:

    Ice for 24-48 hours (no more than 20 minutes at a time)

    Heating pad ad lib after the first 48 hours

    Don't work the muscle until the pain's gone for about 48 hours

    Resume lifting with LIGHT weights- rehab the muscle

    Warm-up carefully before working the muscle

    Aspirin, Motrin, Aleve for pain-relieving as well as anti-inflammatory effects (Unless you have a contraindication for using the stuff)
