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?

    Elbow pains

    I have been lifting weights pretty hard for the past 6 weeks now and have run into some major elbow pains (left arm)...I have been lifting weights pretty regularly since high school(5 years) but never as seriously as I have now... My routine was all wacked-I would bench like every other day and go pretty hard in all my muscle groups...
    My elbow has hurt now for about 2 weeks and I have currently taken off this past week...
    I was wondering what exactly is wrong with my elbow and what would be the correct steps to fix my problem...

    should I rest it more or just try and work thru it?

    is there anything I can take to quicken my recovery? (glutamine for joints???)

    Is it similar to tennis elbow???

    I tried benching and biceps (lightweight) today and noticed that it hurt more on bench...I have not done triceps b/c I initially thought this was the main cause...
    Thankyou for all the help!

    for training how often do ya bench? I'd hope less then twice a weak.
    don't work thru pain
    Rest it a bit, don't do lifts that hurt you.
