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?

    a lil sore... but wanna workout...

    im feelin a lil sore from a workout three days ago lol... it's b/c i had a 2 week layoff before that....

    but i really wanna workout today.... i kno it is generally not recommended to workout when feeling even the slightest bit sore.... however, it has been over 48 hours and today i would only be doing 3 exercises...

    "This phase consists of working up to a 5 repetition maximum (RM) for the following lifts. Start the session with approximately 70% of your 1RM for the lift, or a 12-14 RM. Perform 5 reps, rest and add 10%, perform 5 reps, rest and add 5%. Keep increasing the load 3-5% until you reach a comfortable 5RM.

    Rest 1-2 minutes between the initial efforts; rest 2-3 minutes between efforts with higher loads. This shouldn't be a balls-out competition effort. Therefore, no face-slapping or screaming is required.

    Day 1

    Back Squat (wide stance)
    Bench Press
    Lying DB Triceps Extension"

    What do you guys think? Rest more or workout. Once again, i only feel the slightest bit sore...

    Lift. The soreness will probably go away once you're warmed up.

    If I skipped workouts because of soreness, I'd never lift.

    I don't know if this is the best thing to do, but I typically take some IBUProfin and stretch more than usual(every time I feel that I can) so my muscles don't feel so tense when I'm doing my lifts. Maybe someone can give me some insight on this? and maybe some other ways of working with it other than being tough HAHA. Thanks in advance and what I do now works okay, I just always look for new ways and I just thought of this while reading the posts.

    I don't know where you heard you're not supposed to lift when sore. Try to remember where you heard that from, then never listen to advice from that source again.
    Don't hate the player. Hate the game.

    I only soar when I'm high, but sometimes I get SORE when I change up my routine. Sorry...

    Either way, lift through and go crazy!

    Have you gotten 48 hours of rest on the body parts you want to work? Have you been eating properly?

    If you answered yes twice, then lift.
