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 Work

    Ive been busy with school and football and all so I havent posted for a while.


    I'm wondering should I do more direct shoulder work in the off season?

    the basis of my off season workouts consist of lots of heavy pushing (benching, incline, dumbell, dips ect.) pulls (rowing, cleans, high pulls ect.) Ive always been told and led to believe that if I do alot of this that I dont need any diretc shoulder work because my shoulders will get worked enough just from doing this.



    but this season ive had shoudlder problems, mainly my left one. My trainier done a few test on me and said that my chest and triceps are way stronger than my shoulders are, and that when i punch out to block they are placing alot more stress on my shoulder than it can handle causing it to be injured.

    Its also kind evident when i see myself in the mirror, my shoulders are broad and big (but im 280 pounds they are supposed to be) but they kinda round off and are not as bulky as my tri's and chest are.

    So im thinking after this season should I go ahead and add more direct shoulder work to help aleviate this problem. any ideas or extra input yall want to add??

    Definitely add more shoulder work. Btw, are you playing college football (if so, for whom)? 280 would be scary as hell in high school ball.

    Do some posterior delt. work. The post. delts are the "deaccelerator" muscles that keep the other muscles from unbalancing the joint. Since I started doing them, I've had a lot less problems with my left shoulder, which is also my weak point (sloppy joint, past injury).

    I could give all to Time except - except

    And what I would not part with I have kept.
