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?

    I'm not much of a runner but I would definatly get this checked out by a doctor. However, AFTER whatever it is healed, I would recommend training your ankle extensors (I believe thats what they're called...) Most runners get a muscle imbalance and I believe thats what causes shin splints. For instance, stand up on your toes. This is the motion that you make in running with your ankles over and over and over and over - you never train the reverse motion! (Pulling your toes/foot toward your knee). After it heals, train this rang of motion using an elastic band of some sort.

    I had shin splint before and it sucked. It didn't go away until after the season was over. Over the weekend, it healed a bit but when Monday came up, my shins would feel good for a little bit and then it came back during practice, and got worst as the week went by. The cycle continued week in and week out until the season was over. I just googled "shin splint" and a lot of resources say to treat shin splint with rest or decreased training. I don't think you can just brush off a shin splint with ice. Also, continuing training on a shin split could aggravate the injury is what the links said. So if indeed it is shin split, you need some rest. I think it's better to stop any training that aggravates the shins and just let it rest rather than risk prolonging shin splint with some training.

    McVein...please do a search in the forums. There are several threads on shin splints, what to do for them and how to minimize them as well as knowing when the problem is brought on by something else (check anthony's posts). Best of luck with things, but with that said, I'm locking this thread.
