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?

    Oly lifting and random people

    Do people ever look at you weird when they ask "how much do you bench" and you say "I dont bench". They must have the most dumbfounded look.

    Once somebody asked me if I wanted a spot when I was doing snatch.

    Yeah...just put your fingers under the bar as I'm swinging it above my head.

    Your goal should be to say: "Less than I snatch."

    Like you would not believe. Lol
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    Yeah... They usually then turn to say "Well what about curls?"
    "ummm... I don't do them either."

    =S
    "So... what do you do?"

    Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

    I always tell people I don't workout.
