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?

    Can't Walk.

    I got DOMSin my calves so bad that I can barely walk and am limping around the house and at work. It took 2 days to kick in and it kicked in BAD.

    Here's what i did.

    Parallel squats 6sets 8reps
    Hammy Curls 4*10
    Standing Calf Raises 5*12
    Deadlifts 5*8

    I can hardly walk but at least I know i trained hard. I saved money too by not going out tonight.!! Got me some chinese food.

    Your volume seems pretty high. 6 sets of sqauts plus 5 sets of deads although thats not what would have caused it.

    Is 5 sets of 12 your normal calve routine or did you try something new on that day. Did u increase your range of motion or anything like that. Sounds strange that u got it two days later

    I don't normally do anything specific for my calves. I was thinking bah, what are calf raises gonna do compared to squats and deads?? I got my answer.

    I like high volume.
