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?

    Pain

    So I started working out a little while ago and recently started taking creatine because I wasn't seeing much improvement. Anyways just last friday when I started working out I started getting arm cramps like where my tricep is in my right arm. It hurts really bad to the point where I couldnt finish the third set. And this was a weight I can normally do 3 sets, 10 reps of. And now I went to work out again today and the final set, I got the cramp again but still finished. Any ideas? Also I need to hurry up and gain some big bulk for lacrosse which starts in a month, if you have any workout suggestions please help.

    You should have started training earlier if lacrosse starts in a month
    As for the cramping.
    I'll say with 95% certainty its because of not enough water.
    Drink up!

    Yeah. If you can keep track of it and make sure you get at least a gallon a day, that would be best.

    Incorrect

    Tendonitis has nothing to do with cramping.
