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?

    Strange pressure/pain iun the back of my head

    I've been working out for the past month and last week I had an asthma/bronchitis-like symptom (hard to breathe, hacking up phlegm) and after three days it was gone but I'm still wheezing a bit. A few days ago I was doing hack squats and suddenly in the back of my head I felt a strange pressure followed by slight pain. I immediately stopped the workout and went home. Yesterday I had forgotten all about the pain and as soon as I started on the bench press the same thing happened. This is pissing me off because its preventing me from doing my workouts. My workout buddy said he's had the same thing happen to him and that its just my breathing. Any thoughts?

    Yup your buddy is right it is your breathing, I get this when doing insanely taxing workouts sometimes. You have to take really deep breaths, sometimes take 2-3 deep breaths when youre at the top of your squat movement, then take a huge breath and hold it while going down, exhale while going up.

    And I think it happened on your bench press cuz your head was still damaged from the time it happened during squats, this happened to me as well but it should go away fairly soon. As for now take it easy untill that pain in the back of your head subsides.

    Any pain in your head for no obvious reason (ie; you didn't hit it on anything) could potentially be VERY serious. See a doctor.

    Exercise-induced headaches are not all that uncommon. The far majority are benign. However if this new and persisting, it should be checked out by a professional.
    I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.

    Or, it could just mean you need to hydrate, lay off the caffeine for a bit, take in a little less sodium, and you'd be good.

    Maybe....
