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?

    Am I suppose to feel this way?

    Guys that always have effective leg workouts, I need your help here.

    Whenever I workout legs doing Squats and SLDL, by the very next day I will have this tight, pulling senastion on the back of my legs, from the hamstring all the way down. Whenever I try standing straight and bend down to touch my shins (like doing Good Mornings w/o weights), the 'pull' will be more obvious. Is this an indication of post leg workout soreness, or did I just do some wrong lifting?

    Just make sure you are stretching before, during, and after your workouts/lifts. Maybe it'll help to loosen up the muscles a bit.

    But, you're just sore from working out like others said.

    Thanks...I know it's natural to sore in the quads and hamstrings but since it's that part directly behind my knee which felt this pulling, therefore I post this question to ensure everything's safe anyway

    Sore is okay, as long as it's not a sharp pain or ripping sensation. Lots of people tend to have tight hamstrings, so stretching and gradually increasing your ROM on the SLDL will help over time

    I could give all to Time except - except
    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    When you do SLDL's don't do them with knees locked out. The legs should be stiff and slightly bent.

    Keep those knees healthy.

    Usually, when you get accustomed to working out, you will not be sore.

    speak for yourself, intense workouts nearly always leave me with soreness a day or two later.

    Paki, you know more than me, so i think you can explain it. I've read plenty of literature that proves that streching heavily before exercise can actually over-relax the muscles causing performance to be hindered. Cackerot has also told me that. and i'm sure that you know that too.

    *** How does one over-relax a muscle?
    I have never stated that stretching before a workout is bad.
    Nor do I nessicarily agree with the statement that Cackerot fed you.

    It depends on the situation.
    Generally no it's not productive but there is a time and place for it before a workout so I won't write it off all together.

    Maki stop being an ass to me.

    I never used the term "over-relax", I just said that pre-workout stretching can weaken you.

    *** Like I mentioned it has it's time and place. For instance, if a person is especially tight in a specific muscle group and it is restricting her from completing a natural ROM in a exercise then some agressive stretching whether it is static, dynamic or PNF can aleviate the problem.

    Guess I'd better stop stretching before I speed skate then and maybe THAT'S why I couldn't leg press 500 lbs, I stretched beforehand.

    I agree with Cack about pre-stretching weakening you. The tighter you are, the more weight you'll throw around (however you will be more prone to injury).
