The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Is he right or wrong?

    I am not sure what to think of it.

    I have seen normal women go crazy over nothing and it always bothers me that men dont say, enough is enough.

    But still hitting a woman is a bit much.
    A big thanks to all my friends in the USA, I am deeply grateful for your hospitality and kindness.

    Physically hurting a woman in a serious (not joking around) way isn't something I'm comfortable with.

    Yea I don't think I would. But I'd probably throw things at her or atleast in her direction lol.

    If I got that mad I'd just leave the house for a couple hours. Nothing wrong with just chilling out and fixing it later.

    i dont condone beating women, bu i have no problem with hitting one.


    imo thats one of the biggest crocks of **** that are spurtted about women is "there is no reason to hit a woman"

    there is always a reason believe me or not, i only have two major rules, keep your hands to yourself and dont talk **** about my family (ie "thats why ur momma is a bitch!!!" other than those two i will never lay my hands on one.

    Ok, Corey, ummm.... What?



    I would NEVER* hit a woman.

    *=unless they had a weapon and/or they were trying to physically hurt themselves or others

    I've lost respect for a lot of morons who so flippantly say things like "If they hit me, I'll hit back.".... Give me a break! I know I'm old-fashioned, but grow a pair already!

    edit: the more posts I read in this thread, the worse it gets...

    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Thanks Deed. Glad you feel the same way. IMO, any 'man' would.

    Boycott the Squat Rx? NOOOOooooo!

    Sean Connery(a man's man) is absolutely right. He said "it depends on the circumstances." I don't know why that is not acceptable.

    I am a very patient man, and I can take ANY form of verbal abuse from anyone. But if things got physical and a woman started to hit me, she better expect that if she wants to fight with a man, like a man, then she will get popped and dropped like a man.

    I wouldn't do it. It's not something that I personally think is ok to do.

    It's probably that I'm old fashioned like that in many respects when it comes to women but I just wouldn't do it. On a side note though, I've only ever had to actually hit a man once or twice. I avoid physical conflicts whenever I can, but I wouldn't hesitate to defend myself or a loved one.

    I would hit a woman if the situation demanded it, just as I would hit a man if the situation demanded it. In either case it would be as a last resort.

    I don't understand this whole "women are completely equal" but "you're never allowed to hit a woman."

    I've never hit a woman. And I would never hit a woman (my girlfriend) unless she hit me first. And then I would probably grab her arm and pin her on the ground so that she wouldn't hurt herself by hitting me.

    Lmao. This thread is so relevant! I was at a buddies house just the other night and one of his other friends (whom I had never met) had a beligerently drunk gf there (not to mention she was a bit butch and one of the biggest people at the house) and she kept yelling at her bf like he was her b***h. It was really funny for a while, but she then stepped up to my buddy that owned the house and was screaming right in his face. He made some comment to her bf to get his b***h out of his face and before he knew it she punched him in the face. After falling back, he walked up and knocked her the f*** out. I mean it wasnt really funny at the time, and I guess it still isnt...but I have NEVER witnessed anything like it...I dont think I could ever hit a lady though.

    I actually laughed out loud when I read this. It just seems so comical to me. I dont think your buddy hit a lady, more of a fat arrogant 2-bit whore.

    I think all physical violence is avoidable, its just how bad you want to evade it. Well, plus situation pending. If 3 girls or guys tried to mug me and I knew I could take them (I KNOW I never could... laff) damn rights id run a clinic.

    I can handle most things verbally, but there are lines that nobody crosses with impunity. Say **** about my mother (RIP) and I will kick the **** out of anyone, man, woman, r-etarded, in a wheel chair, geriatrics, little kids, ... anyone.

    A Guy I know Was confronted by these three Girls of our age 18-19, one of them had a knife and another one had a screwdriver, they tried to mug him and he dropkicked one of them in the teeth.

    Thats a true story, I think Its hilarious that he dropkicked her, but I definitley think that when people say "Id never hit a woman", they arent considering all the cirsumstances.

    Yeah. I agree with McVain. Any of you who say you never would hit a woman, you likely would, if the circumstance really depended on it. For example to save your life or getting mugged like MV mentioned. If some bitch really tried to fight me for some reason, taking shots legitimately, I'd probably rock her. Women's equality..I don't see why I can't fight back the same way I'd fight back to a man.
