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?

    DOMS question.

    I have been lifting for about 7 months now. Normally I do squats late in the week because I do not want to be too sore for work. Lets say I squat thursday evening. Friday I can tell that I squatted the day before, but saturday Im really sore. And sunday too. Sometimes even into monday. Is three or four days of soreness normal?

    Ive been like that many times, and I know people, "soreness is not an indicator of a good workout" but i still use it to judge lol to be honest, if im not sore the next day or more i think the workout was poor and it usually was

    But that's just me, Ive been sore for like 5 days when i started lol

    Soreness is a function of high volume, low frequency, and not much else.

    I only do about 6 sets, each getting heavier. Going from about 10 to 12 reps down to 4 or 6 reps.

    Legs typically are the most sore for me on the second day as well! make sure your diet & water intake is in check as well.

    foam roller will help too

    Some times I'm sore for 2-3 days, usually after doing less weight with more reps. It's not that big of a deal, so don't lose any sleep over it.

    legs are always the most sore for me. But usually more sore when i switch things up... when im not sore after a workout its sometimes an indicator to me that things are getting stale. Sometimes because sometimes im still making good gains so ignore it. I put the least focus on my legs and they seem to be growing in strength the fastest.

    I think as long as you're eating fairly healthy and getting lots of water, the soreness is 'normal' and nothing to be concerned about. As long as it's muscle soreness and not joints or anything.

    Walk on the weekends to loosen your legs and stretch. You will be surprised with how much better you feel just by doing simple things like that.

    I have been walking on the weekends and once I get the blood flowing in my legs from a brisk pace, they feel much better. for a while anyway.
