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?

    Pulled muscle?

    Ok tonight was back night so i did 3 sets of weighted chins followed by 3 sets of deads, 3 sets of bent over bb rows, and 3 sets of t-bar rows. On the t-bar rows i felt a sharp pain in the lower left side of my back right below my waist. I finished out my sets and the pain wasn't too noticable, but during the sets it was annoying. My mom says i probably just pulled something and i was wondering about some of your guy's opinions, i just want to make sure its nothing serious or anything. Thanks.

    I get that once in awhile in my lower back as well, its probably just a mild sprain. Should be better within a couple days. If pain isnt gone within a couple days just get it checked to be safe before working out again.

    Interesting topic
    I pulled a back muscle also (well atleast i think i pulled it)

    Its near the center of my back, about 1 1/2 inches to the left hand side of my spine

    Been there for 3 weeks....I'm trying to stay away from things that would put pressure on it, such as when I twist to crack my back. Oddly enough I've been able to lift just fine, but there is still a mild pain depending on how I move the muscle.

    Now 3 weeks is a bit long to have pain....I should prolly see a doctor, but for a mild muscle pull all the doctor is going to say is to get some rest, and stay away from the weights for a bit.

    spl-_373 had it right, if the pain isnt to severe, wait a few days and see what happens....theres no medicine that doctors hand out on a regular basis to make muscle strains/pulls heal faster...just rest
