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?

    Sharp Stabbing Shoulder Pain!

    Hello all,
    I am currently experiencing some shoulder pain in my left shoulder. I was benching heavy and after the set i had a sharp stabbing pain in my shoulder. Particularly behind the front deltold. I did some searching and found it might be the AC joint. (acromio-clavicular joint). The weird thing is that the pain was gone the next day, till i had back day. and it came back.

    Currently im icing it and planning to go to the doc. Till then i was wondering if anyone has experienced this type of pain and if so what was it diagosed.

    I am thinking pessimistically right now, if it is severe, HOPE TO GOD IT ISN"T, what can i do instead of chest and back. Arms possibly? Legs of course. What can i do to cope? Can i train light? What about doing Legs, arms, and cardio? Is my upper body gonna suffer? HELP!
    High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.

    I expreienced a similar pain, but mine was toward the front of the shoulder. It was caused by an impingement. Best of luck with the MD.

    Could be a pinched nerve, hope for that since it isn't too severe and will heal in a few weeks. As far as training while you're hurt, don't do it. I finally just got back into the gym after a month of back problems, and there is no way, no matter what kind of training I did, that it would have ever healed if I worked out. Depending on what the doc says, you still could probably do some mild cardio or something, just better check with him/her.
