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?

    You've just made the best friend you will ever have. I love my Pit so damn much.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    My dogs just ran for an hour in the snow with a white pit. My mutt is a really, really good athletic dog, super fast agile, and that pit hung with her for a good 20 minutes, then he said F it and laid down next to my chocolate and chewed on the other end of the stick she was chewing on.

    Thanks guys.

    Hes 11 weeks old, his full name is Sir Pifington Piffs-A-Lot. I just got my own house and I figured a guard dog would be ill to have. I have had him for less then 48 hours and already taugh him to sit, give paw, bark, and stay. What a smart dog. He is adorable and sleeps between my gf's and my legs.

    Hes going on a cycle of 250mg testE/week and 50mg/dbol 2xED.
    Diet Consists of ultra brand dog food 5 x a day, 1lb Kobe Beef ED and 1 kitten EOD. Oh and MAXIMUS since this dog loves the matrix.

    Donno about PCT yet but I'm letting him keep his balls.

    I misspelled it.

    I have grown up with a 95lbs Male Pit and he was my best friend.

    Yea I feel you Josh, All the pits ive seen personally are mushes but they will fight to protect you.

    PS Josh, Pittbulls are illegal in many parts of the country. Some homeowners insurance won't even cover houses with Pitts in em. Their reputation is a shame.

    When i was 8 me and my friends picked on this dog from its puppy stage till fully grown and it was a mean ass dog. Well one day I convinced this mentally disabled kid to ride his bike passed it ( telling him the dog was my best friend and only acted mean cause it wanted to play ) well the kid got bit so damn bad you could see his bone. All dogs can be mean depending on how they are raised.

    Also I know I was a JERK at 8 years old I did alot of dumb **** and paid heavily for it each time believe you me.

    It's not just Pits. Chows, Dobermans, and Rottweilers have a lot of the same prejudices, and in some areas that extends to German Shepherds, and Boxers too.

    The problem comes from the fact that these breeds, should they be raised wrong, are generally (MEANING NOT NECESSARILY ALL) capable of doing a lot more damage than other breeds. They were originally bred to be stronger and meaner, hunters and protectors. Any breed can be trained to be anything if the right person is involved, but certain dogs can be really bad if the wrong person gets ahold of them.

    A friend of mine had a purebred Arctic Timberwolf and he was awesome...until he got hit by a car.
