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?

    How to approach newly healed Knee

    I've been off my knee for a while, and now I think it's ok (at least my doctor does). I still feel pain though whenever I try to squat deeply or clean. I think this may be from being off of it for a long time, I don't know. Any suggestions, or comments about what I should do? Stay off it more, do ________ to build strength in your knee again, just go back to normal the pain will eventually go away, etc. ...?

    did your doctor suggest a rehab route or a physical therapist? You should start there. What kind of injury did you have? I strongly suggest you discuss this with a sports rehab doctor and have him put you on a routine specific for your deficiencies.

    I just recovered from surgery and consequently, a year of very little training in my knee. If it has been just knee 'pain' (a common problem) or patellar tendonitis... the beginning exercises are much the same. I started training by doing stairs (not the machine, just a step that you will go up and down repeatedly) and lunges (walking- forwards and backwards, and round-the-clocks). I also did some one-legged squats to parallel using an ab ball for support. Once I no longer felt pain in these I started doing some BW squats (going as low as comfortable) and then added the bar, light weight etc. Using a slow progression. I have just started working around my 5 rep max and I had surgery near the end of November! Obviously the circumstances differ, an din order for anyone to give half-ass advice we need to know more about the condition... so... elaborate!
