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?

    question about soreness

    i dunno if this should go in general health--because its injury im worried about--or here. i tried a search but its broken and even if it worked any key word i use is going to yeild so many pages of results talking about DOMS that id probably look for an hour till i found the answer...

    when i do deads i tend to get a sort of stretching feeling in my hamstrings, like a tightness. it does this a little on squats and they will sometimes ache slightly (hardly noticeable, its not even to the point of being that uncomfortable) after a workout. any idea why this is? are they weak (i suspect this, when i miss a deadlift, its because i cant break it from the floor, i think my hamstrings are holding back the initial step, also the first 6 inches or so is where i get the tight feeling). right now im worried that i will cramp up during the middle of a set and fall down or have my form deteriorate and cause a real injury. so what should i be doing? i dont think its flexibility as im not especially inflexible and i stretch them regularly at XC.

    You probably don't want to stretch before lifting...particularly your hamstrings since about 95% of people have OVERLY stretched hamstrings...so stretched in fact that they feel tight.
