The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Back Pain

    So a year ago halloween I slept in a friends car upright in his front seat...Dont ask why. Anways ever since then my lower back seems to always be in pain. When I am not sitting up completetly straight my lower back aches. Ive been to the Dr several times and they have taken x-rays which came back negative. My Dr suggested physical rehad on the back but I am not ready to go that far. Also I am scared to work out my lower back in fear I might damage it more. Can anyone give me any advice on how to reduce lower back pain and strengthen it so that it can heal? It would be greatly appriciated.

    Why? It's not like he recommended surgery. He recommended REHAB. That's not unreasonable when it's been bothering you for over a year.

    Exactly what a physical therapist would do.
    I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.

    Razorcut's right. Ab work, lower back work, pay extra special attention to form on all exercises that heavily involve your lower back.

    core workouts.. back extensions. I have neck and upper back pain after 2 car accidents but strengthening my core has eliminated lower back pain.
    Never Giving In.

    Tried a chiropractor yet? I knocked them until I actually tried one. Changed my life.

    I ****ed up my lower back doing squats with horrible form like a year and a half ago. My low back gave me bad pain when bending toward the hips past like 45 degrees. Know what fixed it? I got my ass in the gym and did some light squats and deadlifts, focusing on my form. After the first workout, the decrease in pain was substantial. After like three weeks or a month, it was gone completely.

    I would recommend to get in the gym and do some light sets, with good form, as mentioned above by another poster. That should do the trick. If that doesn't work, go see a chiropractor or a therapist.
