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?

    I think i hurt myself

    I was doing squats the yesterday and Today my lower back is not well. I am still moving fine but i notice a dull pain (not the muscle soreness i am used to) Its in the lumbar region. I have been lifiting 6 days a week with 3 day split. My question is, would you suggest cutting the leg day out for a bit and taking a rest, or doing leg day minus the squats (the real reason to have a leg day in the first place), or some other option?

    I would take a hot bath, do some serious stretching, and go easy until you feel 100%. I'd also consider changing your split ... 6 days a week will catch up with you eventually.

    What he^ said. Sounds like your body is saying ease up before you get hurt for real.

    you could also try 3 on, 1 off

    that rest day every 4th day helps a lot

    creatine can also help you deal with the volume, if not the low back pain

    and put some Epsom Salts in that hot bath.

    I apologize for laughing out loud at the thread title. Sorry. That was rude.
