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?

    what is the problem?

    Whenever I have done back lately the problem has occured, sometimes it will happen when I curl, and a lot during shrugs. It feels like someone is sticking a red hot needle in the back of my trap and twisting it around. It is very painful. I have attached a picture to show where it hurts. Any insight into what the problem could be would be very appreciated. thankyou

    This always happens to me on my left side. You've strained a muscle. When it happens to me I'm not sure if it's my trap, rhomboids, or splenius capitis. It hurts if I turn my head to that side. When the muscle's really spasming it draws my shoulder up. Luckily it hasn't happened to me in a long time.

    You just have to do the rest, aspirin, ice/heat deal. When you start lifting again pay attention to your form when bench pressing. It's happened to me from arching my head/neck back into the bench while pressing.

    Ibuprophen isn't a muscle relaxer either. Aspirin has the same effect that ibuprophen has anywhere in the body (including muscles)- they both reduce inflammation and relieve pain. That's why they're both called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Same mechanisms of action, same arachidonic acid pathways.
