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?

    Something strange.

    I only just noticed today, but one of my back muscles is significantly smaller than the other. I thought maybe it was because I was turning my head to look into the mirror, but my girlfriend confirmed it too. I'm not talking a slight difference, in comparision it looks as though I have no muscle at all on my left side.

    I looked it up, and as far as I can tell it is my lower trapezius, this one here;

    Is there anyway I can even them out? Seems like such an odd muscle to lack on one side and not the other.

    Actually, looking closer it's even lower on my back. I'd say it's my Erector Spinae.

    All kinds of reasons for it and it's not that strange. You could be favoring one foot when balancing with heavy weights (I favor my right because my left leg is partially lame and there is a difference in muscle size on my right side). It could be genetic. It could be posture.
