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?

    Pulled hammy question

    I pulled my hamstring during a soccer game last night, and I have a quick question about taking care of it. I've searched the forums and didn't find the specific answer to this question. I know I should be icing, compressing, elevating, etc. for now. And I know that most recommend holding off on the heat/massage until 2-3 days after injury. My question is, does that include things like IcyHot patches? I gotta say, I'd love to get some warmth against this thing to relax it. Anybody got some advice?

    Don't bother with icy hot. Buy a heat pad and a massage stick and use them several times a day.
