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?

    New routine (w/ Broken leg) :-)

    Okay.. because I have a broken right leg with a cast on, I need to change my routine big time.

    I'm not doing any workouts for my stomach because using the crutches at school works out my stomach. I tried it today from walking classes to classes
    and my stomach was burning like hell, so I'll do that 5x a week for a month or so.


    Now for my upper body,

    I'll do Seated Bicep Curls 3x8 for my arms (dumbbells)
    along with Bench press 3x5 without using my legs (straight bar)

    and I'll do Seated military press to work my shoulders without using my legs.
    (straight bar) 3x5


    I'll do all that on Tuesday and Fridays, sounds good?

    And Should I do single leg extension once my left leg doesn't get swollen?

    Ya, if you can do it without any problems then might as well. When I had my hernia operation I couldn't to anything for awhile and I was afraid to squat or deadlift for even longer.

    Alright sounds good!


    I'll start it on Friday, so I can rest my body more, maybe my left leg wouldn't be swollen anymore and I'll add single leg extension to work my left leg and would help the right leg.. thanks to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM!


    WOO STILL GOTTA GET BIG!!

    Don't work one leg and not the other.

    You should throw some back into your routine. Low rows, chinups if possible (if not, lat pulldowns and pullovers).

    Agh.. Someone said if I work my left leg, it'll bring some of it to the right leg, working both of my leg due to the Central Nervous System!!!


    I'll do Chin ups, 2x10.. perhaps?

    You've all but lost the use of one leg. There is already going to be atrophy. You don't want your good leg to have any more of a head start than it naturally will. Who told you that working one leg "brings some of it" to your other leg?

    there is an effect like this which occurs in the protagonist muscles or opposite side of the body, where the cns compensates for loss. however,if anything, this will result in your uninjured muscles compensating due to trauma, not your cast leg while you work the other.

    anyone who tells you this will happen while you train one side is either misinformed or a total idiot.
