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?

    right shoulder/knee pain....

    for the past week i have been having pain in two places that is effecting my work out.

    1) doing military press kills my right shoulder, its a sudden burning/tearing pain that comes about the 2-3rd rep.

    2) dead lifts and squats is giving me a stabbing pain in my right knee that comes on about the 3-4 rep.

    any advice on what i could be doing wrong that would cause this, or any possible diagnoses? and what i need to do to prevent this from happening in the future.

    thanks in advance

    If you're having stabbing pains in your knee, go see a doctor. Perhaps you are using too much weight. Maybe your form sucks. Who knows? But you should go get your knee checked out by the doctor or a specialist. Don't mess around with knee injuries or something that could lead to injuries.

    And stop doing military presses until you see a doctor. Seriously. Don't aggravate something that could get much worse.

    I think you may have torn something, but I don't know. Ease off for a bit and seek help.

    How long have you been lifting?

    I agree with Scarz. If you refuse to see a doctor yet - at the very least take a week off from lifting and see where that leaves you. Do NOT lift through pain - that's how lifetime injuries happen. Sorry to hear about it and good luck.

    i've been lifting seriously now for about 10 months. if i cut back on lifting, do i stop all together or just stop doing the lifts that aggravate my knees and shoulder? this really frustrates me because i feel that now i'm in a good diet/lifting routine and now with these potential injuries itís screwing everything up. you know its funny, 1 year ago i was smoking and drinking everyday with no pain (except waking up hung over), now i eat good, and exercise 4 times a week and have more problems than ever. i guess i will be going to a doc to see whatís up with my body.

    its good to take a week off now and again anyway, in my opinion, just take a week off, and dont do crap but focus on eating good, sleeping alot and see how you feel... aside from that i agree about the dr...

    Using the words "stabbing", "tearing" and "burning" are usually good indicators to see a doc. You could just stop doing lifts that hurt those area, but why chance it?
