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?

    My back hurts!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think I did something to my lower back when I was squatting 3 days ago. I was squatting to heavy and it threw my form off. Its fine when I stand up and move around but hurts when I bend down or sit down for long periods. It mostly hurts if I arch my back. Im not sure if its muscle pain or spine pain. What should I do?

    Same thing happens to me. I walk fine, run, etc.... but when I bend over or bend to get something (for a few seconds) or squatting to get something, my lower back muscles get tight and it hurts. Hopefully is not the spine, which I doubt. I think is the muscles. Any light on this guys? I am wondering too.

    Rest it and see what happens...maybe apply some heat.
    After a few more days, if it persists, see a doctor.

    I have this too, esp. after good deadlift workout... I think it's muscle pain. But it might still be sight of too much load maybe..

    I used to get the same thing. I started doing weighted hyperextensions and my lower back is stronger than ever. I feel great after squats(245lbs)

    Sounds like what happens to me if I push the lower back too hard. Starts to go from sore to light strain. Its hard to tell not having you here, but you can jack yourself up good if you don't rest it well. Don't ask how I know.

    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
