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?

    Chest Injury?

    Woke up today and my chest is killing me. There is a sharp pain running through the center when I raise my arms or when I make certain movements. I always have soreness after chest day, but nothing like this ever. It's a different kind of pain. Do you think it is something that will go away or could I have injured something?

    I can't say for sure, but you might have injured your sternum, or the muscle attached directly to it. If you take it easy for about a week and it doesn't go away, see a doctor.
    If you're not lifting hard, you're taking up space.
    Get the f$*# out.

    "Sharp" pain is probably a bad thing. On the other hand, how old are you, because I always used to get pains in my chest/ribs (and legs, and arms, and knees etc.) when I was growing (ie. actually growing taller, etc. - not from training), and still do sometimes.
