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?

    Tendonitis HELP!

    I was told by a physical therapist that I have tendonitis in my shoulder. I did this by benching too many reps. It has been almost 3 weeks since the inury. It seems to be slowly slowly healing, but nothing significant. HOw long can I expect the pain to last in my shoulder? ANyone had it in their shoulder?

    Ps I have to admit, I've been stubborn in leaving it alone a couple of times and persisted on bench pressing anyways. I will not do this again.

    Sometimes the so called experts are very right! Sometimes they don't have a clue about what they are talking about! In this case though i would definitely leave it alone for now!

    i had tendonitis in my achilles and was a complete idiot about it and just ignored it and it bothered me for two months. But after coming back from a three week vacation of lounging about (not walking much was key as well) it healed up. It should be easier to heal a shoulder than an achilles as well seeing as don't need to move your shoulder just to walk around.

    my spotty advice: take about three weeks where you don't do anything to it. And if when you go back it's still not better, stop immediately and wait longer. (it only gets worse if you keep using it)

    oh, there's also some stuff about icing it and heating it and taking anti inflammatories... but i never did. So you may want to look into that.

    I've had tendonitis in both wrists flare up several times. I've pushed myself on the weights before I was fully healed and ended up making it worse. Last time I ended up on restricted duties at work. I wouldn't give it a time frame as such but simply wait until its fully healed and ease back into it. Are you being medicated or going through treatment? I've found for myself that anti-inflamatories don't make an appreciable difference but ice packs, painkillers, splints/wraps and rest helped. But that was just me and my wrists.

    I decided to skip the entire thread and just say this. The shoulder is probably the most volatile joint in the human body. Do yourself a favor and take a few weeks break before you decide to push the envelope and 'accidently' injure yourself with a torn joint that you can not recover from. Shoulders are not to be screwed around with IMO. Gorillaz can put most of their weight on their shoulders but we have evolved to be bipedal and not put a lot of weight on our shoulders, and thus our weightlifting can cause problems.

    I'll say something from my experience:
    I seem to get it very easy in my right knee. Why? I don't know. I might be squatting and my left knee will be 100 percent, while my right will be in pain.
    However, I haven't had it there for a while. I took a few weeks off and it all seems to be okay now. I pretty much haven't had any problems with my knee in at least 3 months, and I rarely miss a squat session. My arms seem to be very resistant against it... I suppose this can vary from person to person.

    My advice will pretty much go along with everyone else's in this thread: Take a few weeks off. When you finally do get back, do a few light sessions and slowly work your way back up to the weight you were at before. I think you'll be fine. At the end you may even feel more confident about your shoulder's strength.
