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?

    How do you do it!?

    How do some people run the following day or even within the next 3-4 days after leg day!?

    When I hit my legs I'm having trouble sitting on the toilet for the next 2-3 days let alone go for a run!

    Whats the secret?

    the secret is that cardio, at least for me, helps with the recovery. so instead of 3 days i'm only really sore for 1.

    When you warm up your muscle and the blood is flowing, you won't feel that stiff anymore. When it cools down it'll be right back to stiff. But it can help with recovery, since you are promoting blood flow to the area requiring nutrients to repair. It just hurts to actually get warmed up, since you are stiff and achy.

    I do 10 minutes on the bike before and after my workout and that helps me a lot.

    after your workout more DOMS seems to go away for me, after i have been doing the same routine at the same intensity for a few months. that is why i switch up my routine around 3 months to get that lovely painful sensation called DOMS.

    Haha, I think there is nothing worse than trying to keep your hands up for some shadowboxing after working your chest or shoulders.
