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?

    How often can I do rotator cuff rehab?

    Simple question: will light but high-volume rotator cuff rehab exercises after every workout (3 times a week, WBII) affect my gains or should I just leave it to one day a week on shoulder days? (physiotherapist recommended 3 days a week)

    I've had some rotator cuff issues, and started doing the excercises 3x a week about 5 months ago or so. I'm not 100%, but it's definitely better. I'm not sure what your routine looks like, but I only do 4 different RC excercises for 1 set of 12, and that's pretty much it. I just do them in between my squat sets so that I don't add any extra time to my workouts.

    I was a college pitcher, and we did rotator cuff exercises every day. Did them everyday for 4 years and had no shoulder problems. Now, this is maintenance and is dealing with a healthy shoulder. However, I battled some arm issues my junior year and for a 4 week span had an injured rear deltoid and I did rotator cuff exercises every day then, too.

    We never used more than 5-10 pounds and I don't see how doing light exercises with that small of a weight would hinder gains.
    Most people pray for a lighter load in life...ever thought of praying for a stronger back?

    LIke the others have said, if you keep it light and stay focused on being rehab oriented, you will be fine.
