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?

    Hip joint pain during squat ascent

    Had to skip legs the past 2 days. when i squat, my left hip feels like it needs to pop or something. its uncomfortable at body weight.. and forget about anything heavy. it feels like its in the front of the joint. I've been trying a variety of stretches to try to pop this sucker/release whatever the problem is. anyone have a similar experience in the past and a solution?

    I had the same problem. Hip flexor pain. I stopped squatting for one week, did some stretching like the picture above, and I was pain free when it was time to squat again.

    There are probably a few things in this that could help things.

    Video
    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

    I never did stretching in my life. I had bad hips, bad lower back and bad knees. When ever I worked out, I got side lined from injury within a couple months.

    Got put on a stretching routine as part of my recovery after an accident. Within a month, my back started getting better, my knees got better, my hips got better. It is amazing how many problems proper stretching can cure.

    If I could transport back to my youth when I started lifting, I would also take up something like yoga. I didn't, it wasn't manly.
