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?

    Leg Training Post Injury

    I tore my rectus femoris about a year ago and it had been a recurrent injury of sorts (really a long story), i am now pretty much for the first time since then able to run freely again.

    Obviously i waded my way through months of rehab and such and it was my physio's opinion then that i was basically placing my legs under too much stress. I was playing rugby probabaly seven times a week and then gym leg workouts and maybe one or two social run arounds with my friends.

    So here is my question, i never really felt like gym training made me quicker (running wise), and i am scared that if i do train again i will be more prone to hurting my leg again, but i do love to train and wouldn't mind putting on a little weight again (no squat = no weight) so has anyone else had a similar injury, successfully recovered, advice?

    Damn man, 7 days a week of rugby?! That's some serious strain on your muscles, not including weight training. How old are you?
