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/Pinched something

    I went into the gym today in a very negative emotional state and tried to lift hard. I could tell I was in trouble because I just felt really weak. I ended up not letting go of a dumb bell and injured something in my neck. I don't know if I pulled it or pinched something but I can't really turn my head and I've had this sort of thing happen to me before. I shouldn't have lifted and I definitely should have stretched more.

    What should I do to minimize the amount of time I have this?

    I've done this before without the proper warm up/stretching. Sounds like you just pulled a muscle. Light stretching and ice/heat therapy is a good start to recoevery.
