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....

    Hey ladies and gents...

    My pain is in my middle back, only when I take a deep breath, it is sharp and just to the right of my spine. It does not hurt any when it is touched or when I am breathing normally. I didnt feel any pain at any time during my workouts, so I am not sure if it is caused by exercise. I cant think of a thing that would have caused it. Any of you familiar with what the problem may be??

    Thanks

    i've had that.


    it only hurts when you take a deep enough breath right?

    it's something to do with your trapezius i think. take it easy and it'll subside.

    Do you do upright rows or shrugs? You might try laying off those for awhile to see if it goes away.

    i got mine from pressing believe it or not!

    machine presses i think. I strained a lot for a forced rep and i think i must have turned my body a bit, or my right side being the stronger i somehow managed to tweak my trap.

    you don't need to stop training, but definately avoid exercises that exaggerate it. only if it becomes really painful would i say time off is necessary.

    thanks man.......i got this advice from the Dr. Squat MB what do you think of this.......

    You might just have a slight subluxation. Try this: 1. Treadmill , stepper, eliptical for 5-10 minutes, just to get a sweat going
    2. Do 2 sets body weight hypers
    3. Do 2 sets supermans on the floor
    ***NOTE this is all to get the body temp up and increase elasticity of your muscles
    Now the good part:
    4. Lie on a bench on your back, bend your left leg 90 degrees, grab your left knee with your right hand and pull the knee directly across your body, when your left leg gets past the side of the bench, let it drop down while you're still pulling it across with your right hand
    5. Repeat for other leg

    ------------

    What ya think bout that??
