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?

    Coming back from a Golfer elbow injury, rehab advice please

    Well after 7 LONG months, my golfers elbow injury is finally healing up right. I had to resort to getting a steroid/cortisoid injection in the tendon, but now the swelling is gone away.

    Right now I'm looking for some workout advice and maybe a routiene i should follow so I don't fubar my elbow all over again. Any advice would be apperciated.

    My basic knowledge on getting back into the gym is just to take it easy and strengthen the wrist muscles with curls, and also to do stretches.....so my knowledge is a bit thin =(

    Are you working wiht a physical therapist? what does your doc say?
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    I went to a specalist (Physical Medicine and Rehab), thats who gave me the shot with a steroid and cortisoid. He told me to stretch the elbow out everyday by extending my hand straight out, then bend my wrist backwards as far as possible, using my other hand to help apply pressure. I was also told to do free weight wrist curls everyday (2 sets x 10 reps).

    He said that after a couple of weeks I should go back into the gym and slowly work back into the weights. If the elbow started to hurt, then I should discontinue the exercise and ice it. He was pretty vague on what to do. Thats why I'm looking for some specific tips or advice to build up the elbow tendon and keep it healthy.

    Are things like glucosamine and chondrotin going to help?

    I've been doing all the doc requested, but should I stay away from things that use my elbow a lot (even if in light weight) such as any pressing exercise, or dips?
