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?

    Once again I looked first!

    I looked in the forums but I couldn't find the thread with the answer. I have heard that light lifting builds mass, while heavy lifting builds density, like if you lift light you will get really big but your muscles will be soft and weak, and if you lift heavy you will have small muscles, but they will be hard and strong, I do different stuff on different days and I like what I see, I was just wondering if what I hear is true.

    I don't think light lifting will give you mass, otherwise we'd all be huge from all the light things we lift during the day... always heard; lift heavy and eat alot to build mass. Can't imagine a huge body builder workin out with little dumbbells.
