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?

    Back rows, rear delt rows hurting my back...

    I do these two excercises (on the same day)
    http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/...arDeltRow.html
    and
    http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/...ntOverRow.html
    (I mostly do underhand for back rows)

    The trouble is I hurt my back, or maybe my hip, last September and doing these excercises is bringing back the pain and making walking difficult.
    I have tried the versions where you do them lying down but it makes breathing difficult.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    If an exercise hurts you...don't do it. Find an alternative that causes you no pain and train that instead.

    Rest untill your ready to start again, and don't do it underhand.

    If I were you, I'd just stick with bent-over rows, they get pretty much everything, unless your trying to isolate just one certain muscle.

    trying doing bentover row using a sumo stance. it'll allow you to use more weight and lessen stress on lower back. As for rear delt rows i guess you can try reversed flyes. what else are you doing for back?

    Great suggestion about sumo; and I think I'll give reverse flyes a try, I had forgotten about those. Thanks.
    The rest of my back routine is rack pulls, deadlifts, chin-ups and lat pulldowns.
