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?

    What should I do about forearm injury??

    About two months ago I was working as a grill cook at a mexican restaurant and was developing tendonitis from the constant flipping of meat and hours of dicing. At about the same time as my employment ended there I injured my self in the gym by doing a very heavy set of dumbell side laterals. Ever since that workout my right forearm has been a nuisance. It hurts the most where the tendons on top of my forearm connect to the bone in my elbow. I've continued lifting since the incident but I think my arm is slowly getting worse. I planned on completely stopping lifting for the next 2-4 weeks. Do you think this will be enough to help heal or do I need to take further action?? Please help!

    you need to make sure you are icing it to get the inflamation down and stay away from exercises that aggrivate it.

    Like Travis said: ICE IT

    after that, and only once you've given it some time to rest.... a week or two maybe.... I'd start up doing some very light forearm work. I had the ulnar nerve light up in my elbow over last winter and the added forearm work really helped it a lot.

    Thanks a lot for the tips, guys. I'm going to start taking icing more seriously and after a couple weeks of rest start working on rebuilding my grip strength before going back to heavy lifting.
