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?

    Shoulders been sore for 4 days!

    I did chest 4 days ago and on my burnout set I did 20reps of 225. It felt ok, then I got up and it was in slight pain. Now everyday for the past 4 days my shoulder has been hurting. I just tried to bench the bar and it was ok, i felt a little pain. I put on 135 and i really felt the pain. Anyone know whats going on? What can I do to help it heal? thanx

    well if it's pain pain then you've done something wrong, maybe your technique, or maybe that weight at 20 reps is a bit high? Otherwise if it is muscle soreness then you've done the right thing!

    the pain is good!

    i thought it was my shoulder too, obviously as i said before
    but after doing shoulders yesterday, i've discovered it's probably an inflammed/strained/torn pec, where it connects to your shoulder. subscapularis muscle possibly? my friend showed me about a similar injury on another forum (way more severe though) and the guy had torn the muscle, causing his entire shoulder/chest area to turn black and blue (and yellow) requiring surgeory to stop the muscle from "rolling up" and he was out for 5-6 months. i would recommend staying away from chest/triceps that involve stretching of the muscle (pull overs, dips, etc.) for atleast a week to make sure things don't get worse

    Sounds like your shoulder is inflamed, chances are it is from overuse. Try to lighten up on it for a few weeks. You could try icing it before or after exercise and taking anti-inflammatory before training if it feels tight. I have tendonitis in my right shoulder from when I was a discus/javelin thrower in high school. Make sure you stretch and properly warm up.
