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?

    medicine ball effectiveness

    I've recently gotten back into lifting, trudging along for a while and settling on a 1-2x/wk "routine". I just could not get the motivation. I use a Bowflex (yea yea) which I had great success with before and enjoyed. A friend recommended getting a medicine ball, they were on sale, I figured I'd give it a try.

    I've used it twice. Pretty intense for 1/2 hour, and about 15 min of slightly easier 'wind down' routines. I swing and twist with it every which way, sometimes slowly, sometimes really fast.. I get a pretty good pump going by the end of the workout. On both occasions, I was ridiculously sore the next day.. my entire upper body, every single muscle had been worked. It wasnt a "I overdid it and hurt myself" sore, but a "that was a crazy workout and I'm still drained" sore.

    Aside from leg workouts, I think I'm going to only use the medicine ball for a while, I actually really enjoy it. Anyone have luck with plans like this? Im not really looking to gain mass and strength as I am going for an athletic and toned appearance.
