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?

    Twitching?

    Why do I twitch? Like right now right above my right elbow, my arm is twitching. Not my whole arm, just above my elbow. Like you those electronic stimulation machines they use for physio and like the "ab tronic" and it makes you muscles twitch, that's what I experience, but why?

    usually happens when you're fatigued.

    i've experienced that especially in my leg muscles or my hands.


    usually after driving wuith no cruise control for 13 or 14 hours straight (my right leg).

    or typing god awful amounts of material (8 or 9 hourse straight). My eyelids willt witch sometimes because of that too. thank god i'm not a secretary anymore.

    It's not fatigue, I get plenty of sleep. I think it has to do with maybe my diet?
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Things that make your muscles or nerves irritable: Lack of sleep, stress, muscle fatigue, adrenaline, electrolyte abnormalities, caffeine, nicotine, stimulants.

    This guy gets a good 8-10 hours of sleep each day. He doesn't drunk coffee, smoke, or use stimulants. He's never stressed because he's so laid back but I don't know about his adrenaline. So I guess it has to do with electrolyte abnormalities?

    Without doing blood tests, he could take a multivitamin if he doesn't already. He might try potassium, magnesium, calcium. Nobody who drinks milk has too little phosphorus. Some people with cramps take quinine. All this assumes he doesn't have some metabolic problem to prevent him from taking these things: kidney disease, thyroid or parathyroid problems, etc.

    I've had eye twitches occasionally that went on/off for a few days. Went away by itself. Never figured out why it was happening. Eric was right- we're all dying.

    did the twitching tie in with long surgeries?

    Nah, when I'm twitching the surgery usually doesn't last very long.

    When my eyelid twitches it's usually during times of life stress or too many irons in the fire at one time, not due to long surgery or strenuous activity. Lack of sleep does it sometimes, so indirectly the long surgery is involved.

    Another fine reason to drink gin and tonics...protection from malaria AND those strange muscle twitches

    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,

    He's never stressed
    I've been stressing lately I think. I used to have my eyelids do the same thing. It doesn't happen all the time. I think I'll be okay, thanks for the information everyone
