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 pain and tendonitis in knees

    Things couldnt be any worse...i was diagnosed 2 weeks ago with tendonitis in both knees, and although the pain is gradually decreasing, i cant do any leg exercises other than leg curls, exercises for inner and outer thighs where the leg stays in an extended position, and seated calf raises..my quads have already started to lose size...

    a few days ago i also felt some pain in my shoulders. Im currently doing an HST cycle, and im half way through my 5's, i got 3 more workouts to go for a week..but i dont know if i should continue with it or not.

    Im not sure what the problem with the shoulders is. The thing is i dont feel any pain when im exercising, even when doing bench presses,dips, lateral raises or any back exercises. the pain comes later..for example when i lift my arm to scratch my head or push against something in a standing position i usually get this weird pain, mostly in my right shoulder. also, when lifting sometimes my shoulders "crack" when i do side laterals or reverse pec deck flyes for the rear delts.

    can any1 tell what the problem is?

    ive been taking 400mg of ibuprofren 3 times daily for my knees...and ive continued taking them but they dont seem to help my shoulders. should i continue taking it or drop it?

    should i continue with the HST cycle for this last week? maybe only do arm and leg exercises only?

    also, for my knees...does it mean that they are healed when the pain goes away? my doc told me that the problem is probably from too much flexion of the knees..and told me to do very light leg extensions with less ROM, but when i tried them 2 days ago i got really bad knee pain the day after.

    can any1 experienced with knee/shoulder injuries suggest what i should do for rehab?

    thnx

    1. Go see a physio who specializes in sports injuries.

    2. I had bad tendonitis during my high school basketball career. I remember that stretching was important as flexibility of the hamstrings and quads seemed to effect it, or so the brochure that the doc gave me said. When I started squatting, the pain went away. I think strengthening the muscles around it helped it. Btw, forget leg extensions during your training unless your doc told you to do them for rehab purposes (which i would question because he said the problem was due to too much flexion of the knees). The force generated on your knees while doing a leg extension is gonna make your knee worse. If I were you, I would definately go to a sports physio and get rehab done before you do anymore leg work. If you don't fix this and let it drag, you'll have serious problems when you're older.

    thnx for the reply ME.

    the doctor i went to is supposed to be specialised in sports injuries..he told me to do leg extensions with a small ROM, where my leg doenst bend further than 90 degrees...i think its better though not to do it altogether...how long do u think it will take to heal?
