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 knee pain

    Waited a whole week to do squats, and out of nowhere I get really sharp pain in the knee. I had a partially(very minor) torn MCL a year ago,and had similar pain. It's definately not that now. Was wondering if it's ok for me to still work out my legs with this pain?

    I wouldn't.

    I'd make sure it's not a serious injury.
    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

    No good squat is worth permanently destroying your knee after you feel a sharp pain that has nothing to do with previous workouts. I mean, why take the risk? I'd talk to the doc.

    It's definately knee inflamation. The doctors don't know how to treat it and basically told me to sit idle for the rest of my life, and it wont hurt. I had this same problem last year, and somehow managed to live with it and eventually I either forgot about the pain, or it stopped. Does anyone else suffer from this?
