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?

    LOL Hahn... seriously, do these people do this as a joke or are they seriously trying to convince other people they're that huge?

    I mean, that last image looks like he's at some sort of convention. What compound are they injecting that is actually doing that? Is it called synthol? It looks inflammatory.

    You know, if you read interviews with Greg Valentino, he always talks about how huge his arms were anyway, and how if you just used synthol without already huge arms (or repeated site injection and not synthol, as he claims is the case), then it would look super ****ty and wouldn't have distinct muscle groups or definition.
    Maybe he's right?

    Back when I started learning to draw I'd draw guys with biceps that big. I kept getting reprimanded by the art teacher for not paying enough attention to the lessons on human musculature and the lessons on proportion.

    The people in those pics don't quite look human to me. Especially the guys in pic 2 and 3.

    Valentino did have big arms, pre-synthol, but the synthol made them a lot bigger.

    These idiots (are these real pics?) used way more than valentine.

    Yuck.

    FYI:
    Synthol is composed of 85% medium-chain triglyceride oils (a fatty acid), 7.5% lidocaine (painkiller), and 7.5% 5-benzyl alcohol. The preparation is injected deep into the muscle where it is encapsulated between the fascicles (bundles of muscle fibers) . With repeated injections, a larger volume of oil builds up inside the muscle, expanding its size like a balloon filling up with air. About 30% of what is injected is metabolized by the body. The other 70% remains lodged in the muscle where it breaks down very slowly over three to five years. There seems to be some issue of debate among bodybuilders as to whether or not Synthol actually lasts this long, and some believe it is even longer.

    Somebody should do it in their calves. That would be great to see a 6' 200lb person with 27 inch calves.
