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?

    Shoulder soreness

    I work out every other day, and on occasion do cardio in between. I noticed my left shoulder is sore, not painfully sore, but just aching?
    Today I am supposed to be doing my back (deadlifts, bb rows, t-bar, cable rows)
    Should I take a break?
    I kinda don't want to since I've been in the groove for a while and haven't missed a workout for a while. I am afraid I'll get lazy.

    If you workout every other day (same body parts), then you might be overtraining. The shoulder soreness could be an indication of that. I'd say if overtraining is the case, then by all means take a break. One other thing, stretch some. That will help.

    I don't train same body parts every other day, I do chest/triceps/front&middelts
    back/biceps/rear delts
    legs/traps
    But maybe cause I basically put strain on my shoulders every time I work out. I might take a break for two days...

    Don't worry about losing your groove. Taking a 2 day break will do wonders. If you get really paranoid about getting lazy, then do active rest. Do something outdoors or just do some cardio. I am the same way. The gym is like a drug for me now. If I'm gone too long I suffer withdrawal.

    I've decided to skip the workout until tomorrow. Hopefully it'll be gone by tomorrow, if not I'll just do cardio and wait another day.
