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?

    Recovery from a herniated disc

    I recently herniated a disc in the lumbar region of my back. Since then I have been bed ridden and chock full o' drugs. I'm still running a course of prednisone for inflammation and seeing a chiropractor.

    Doctors aren't the best resource on how to ease back into strength training after an injury like that. Has anyone had to recover from this kind of injury before? I have no idea how to proceed other than to avoid my favorite lifts (i.e. squats, deads). I would assume some stretching would definitely help. I was thinking of throwing in some dips/pull-ups for spine decompression. I do not actually know if it's safe to roll my back out on a foam roller. I want to get back into my strength training very badly, but I want to do it right this time as opposed to any other time that I hurt myself.

    If anyone has any experiences and/or regimens I can use as a resource for this type of rehab, feel free to throw them in.

    EDIT: BW GHR's may also be an option for stretching and alleviating spinal compression, right?

    Credulous at best
    Your desire to believe in
    Angels in the hearts of men.
    But pull your head on out of your hippie haze
    And give a listen
    Shouldn't have to say it all again
