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?

    Naps.....What do you guys think?

    For some reason I can't stand when people take naps. For instance my roommates take naps everyday and it really bothers me.

    What are your thoughts on taking naps? Healthy or not? Lazy or not?

    I think its partly because my roommates don't do **** around the house. They will nap for 2 hours and can't clean up for 20minutes.

    I don't take naps because then I have trouble sleeping at night.


    Although I really hate the 'accidental' naps, watching tv or something sometimes I'll fall asleep and be really confused when I wake up, especially if it was light out and is now dark.

    I only have time for about 5 hours a sleep a day. So napping here and there is completely necessary for maintaining my sanity.

    To the OP, would it be more acceptable if they played video games for 2 hours a day instead of cleaning for 20 minutes? What if they went to the gym for 90 minutes instead of doing some dishes?

    I took a "nap" yesterday at 7pm..and woke up at 6 am.. =(

    I like naps because I can always fall asleep quickly in the middle of the day and it's great sleep.
    I can't fall asleep at night for ****.

    Hahahha. To me, that's the worst thing ever. Although waking up at 6am isn't so bad, but falling asleep at 7pm and waking up at 4am, that just plain sucks.


    I can't fall asleep in the middle of the day if my life depended on it. Falling asleep at night though, is quite easy for me.

    I feel your pain.

    All my roommate does is sleep, play on the internet, and watch TV... no job, lazy...lazy..lazy..

    I work, I go to the gym... and he can't even empty the ******* garbage...

    I could go on and on forever.... but I know EXACTLY where you're coming from. ....... and even though *I* do the cleaning, I am a bitch if I complain about no help... I'm a roommate not your wife, or your mother

    I kinda can't stand it either when people take naps every day too. But it's more because I'm jealous that their schedule allows them to do so, and that they really don't know what hard school work is. It's annoying seeing all my friends' schdules consisting of 2 classes everyday.

    for those bitching about having to clean everything. Do you really think your roommates will ever clean if you keep doing it?

    I nap everyday for about 45 minutes to an hour. It's great rest for anyone who body builds, I remember reading an interview with Cutler and he said during certain times of the year he's either sleeping, eating, or working out. Rest=good.
