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?

    Low Back Pain

    I recently started having lower back pain after leg workouts - left side of the lower lumber region with a little pain radiating into left glute. Pain lasts a few days. I had what I think was just a severe strain of the lumber spine back in 1997 while doing squats - took about 3 months and tons of NSAIDS to resolve but seemed to get better.

    I guess part of it is that I ma getting older-now 44, but I am getting worried about doing leg work for fear of a back injury. I have reduced the weight on free-weight squats to not exceed 130lbs, and I now use a Body Solid vertical press instead. I dont want to stop my leg work - want to keep the quads and glutes that I've built over the years.

    Any suggestions on alternative exercises that will keep what I have/allow me to build more?
    thanks -

    Maybe leg press? It doesn't involve your back and core so much but will certainly stress your legs.
