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?

    Surgery on ACL

    I just found out the reason my right knee didn't heal and I couldn't play football this last season--this orthopaedic doctor told me I have a torn ACL. Anyway, I'm having surgery on it tomorrow and I'll be in a full leg cast for at least two weeks, and then inactive for maybe a month.
    So we're talking about possibly 2 months or more without any kind of exercise, except upper body lifting.

    Anybody got any ideas for what I can do? I've already gotten a lot of extra weight in fat since June for doing hardly anything, and I can't keep eating so much, or my upper body'll go down.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    There are many upper body exercises you can do in that knee immobilizer. I know......I've torn both of mine. That's how I originally got into lifting because I couldn't do anything else with that damn thing on my leg for 2 months.

    Find a good physical therapist that knows the sports medicine side of things. They'll be able to show you many routines you can do safely. Best of luck.
    I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.
