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?

    Funny and embarrassing Q but serious

    Ok, so I have hemorrhoids right now and they SUCK. I am almost 100% positive that they are from doing squats and deadlifts. I am pretty certain I am using proper technique, I think my body is just prone to getting rhoids. This will be the 3rd time I've had them and they are just so goddamn annoying. Over time they go away. My question is, should I bother doing deadlifts and squats anymore? I mean I only really lift just for health reasons and not to get huge anyway. I know squats and deadlifts are two of the best exercises, but I simply can't deal with the side effects anymore. Alright, my is absolutely on fire right now. Got to go lay down on my stomach.

    Use some [cold] witch hazel on 'em. The stuff is like a miracle cure.

    I don't have any first hand experience here, but perhaps it would be beneficial to still squat/deadlift but instead of training heavy you could do higher reps. Another option would be to use short rest periods to make the movement more challenging (cluster sets,etc.).

    I know it is not funny, but the way you put it, so now that I have stopped laughing, I agree with Tom and Off Road!
