The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    ETS and DOM's

    I get terrible DOM's after Squats and Leg Pressing. This isn't a big deal normally but I just found out that I will be playing softball the day after Squat day this summer. Usually I am so sore I can barely walk so this could be a big issue.

    I won't stop lifting to play softball so I was wondering if ETS helped much with DOM's. If it did it might be a really big help.

    Thanks for the info guys.

    My results with ETS have reduced DOMS significantly. When taking it I am rarely suffering, and even when I am sore it is much less than it used to be.

    Reduced DOMS is one of the main functions of ETS.

    "Soli Deo Gloria"
    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    While on the ETS is it ok to take a multi such as NOW Adam, along with antioxidants and fish oils? I remember reading somewhere that it might not be too healthy to take it with other basics.
    Don't asker for a light load, but a strong back.

    Not sure where you read that, but I'm sure it's fine.
