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?

    Strained Gastrocnemius

    Did this just over a week ago, got it checked out by the doctor. He just said ice, elevate and rest it basically and it should get better in a couple weeks. I was just wondering if anyone else had done this and what their experiences were with this injury: recovery time, things that sped up healing, how it felt when you get back to lifting with that muscle, etc..
    Thanks for any replies.

    You should incorporate some regular stretching and possibly calf massage/ultrasound. If you know a physical therapist, they should be able to help you out.
    I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.
