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?

    Training w/ allergies?

    Hey, I have allergies this time of year, and while I realize it's always a bad idea to train sick i figure that a) because allergies last for most of an entire season, far more than say a cold would and b) because allergies (at least mine) don't deplete my energy levels it might work out ok.... but i'm not sure....

    what do you think?

    Hmm me too, I seem to get chest infections very easily when hayfever kicks in, I`m also sensitive to dairy, allergic to dust, smoke etc....seem to be sneezing 70% of the day and when it feels like you have a bad cold you darent train incase its going to make you feel worse.

    If I waited for a day when allergies didn't bother me, I'd never be able to lift. Take an antihistamine and/or decongestant and lift away.

    Claritin will be over-the-counter soon. The manufacturer has come out with Clarinex, which is essentially the same drug, as a prescription-only drug, so they can keep their patent rights going.

    I saw that avatar on another site and absconded with it.

    I wish Zyrtec would go OTC- it actually works.

    What part of Dallas do you live in? I used to live in Irving. Now I'm in eternal torment down in Cleburne, Home Of The All-You-Can-Eat Buffet.

    I am in Euless now, just west of DFW. I moved here about a year ago from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and no one told me any better about Las Colinas or downtown Dallas and I have too much crap to move again. North Texas allergies are not crap compared to South Louisiana, I used to live on Clatrin D and did two years of allergy shots weekly and bi-weekly. Just normally didnít breath from march to may and august through at least September


    You will have to give me more details about this buffet; I might have to hit it on my next trip to Austin

    I think I may have allergies myself, kinda sucks, but it's not worth no lifting. Course I've lifted with the flu, lol.

    i have, or should say HAD bad allergies, which seemed to be getting progressively worse every year. But since I started lifting in March and cleaned up my nutrition and started supplementing with vitamins, minerals and fish oil - NO MORE ALLERGIES. It's like someone just flipped the allergy switch off inside me

    I was one of the first people to try zyrtec during trials....wow that stuff f*cked me up. I don't know anyone that it worked for personally, and my mood immediately became suicidally depresed on that stuff.
