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?

    forearm pain?

    my right forearm aches lately, even when not lifting. It doesn't feel like muscle pain, it feels "deeper" or something. I am right handed. It is not enough to keep me from working/ lifting, etc., is this something I should worry about?

    search.

    if you do standing straight bar/ez bar curls, then that could be it. It was for me. Stop doing them and in a weekish, it will go away.

    Would it help to do hammer curls instead?

    yup. dumbbell curls do not affect my forearm at all. my gym owner said that it was because the straight bar keeps the forearm from turning, thus keeping it at an akward angle the entire time.

    Drop all curls for a while, say 2 weeks. Do all of your pressing and pulling with a neutral grip for at least this period, if not longer.

    If you return to curls, do hammer curls only.

    Tendonitis will go away very slowly, and can be retriggered very quickly, in my (unfortunately, regular) experience.

    If I were to start from scratch as a young 13 year old again, I would do every press, squat, and perhaps deadlifts, for my entire career with chains. -- Dan John
