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?

    Hurt my shoulder today in the gym...

    I was doing my shoulder/bi/tri day off WBB1 today, and I hurt my shoulder on the 2nd shoulder set. I had already done my military barbell press with no problem, but on the 6th and final rep of my 2nd set of overhead dumbbell press, I was going to fail but as I was trying to drive it up my left shoulder just collapsed and I heard/felt (had headphones on very loud) a bit of a crunching sound, not sure what happened, and I dropped both DB's to the ground. I had a previous injury about 8 weeks ago where I fell out of my couch after waking up and using my left arm stiff to protect my fall, which hurt my shoulder really bad, and I couldn't lift it above my head for a few days. Gradually it went away, and as I got back into lifting 6 weeks ago, I could always feel just a slight pain as I finished a rep doing any shoulder lift, but nothing that was ever detrimental to the lifting. I was able to finish most of my workout without a problem, as the bicep and tricep lifts were no problem, except skull crushers which hurt my shoulder too bad. Also this pain is nothing compared to when I fell out of the couch, but I'm assuming I reaggravated it. What should I do to take care of this, and to ensure it doesn't come back? I can rotate my shoulder around in all directions, just with pain, but it feels like after a week after my previous shoulder injury, so it's not nearly as bad. Thanks for all replies, I am doing really well in the gym and don't need injuries to hinder my progress.
