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?

    Starting weight is on Oct 1 so you'll have to wait until then to weigh in

    October 1 = payday... 7 gallons of milk, 1/2 a cow and a 6 pack (of beer/day) should be a good start for the first week!

    Clarification:

    Weigh in is technically anytime during the "sign up" period which is Sept 26th through Sept 30 since your stats can ONLY be posted during that time. We said weights can't be posted before Sept 26th to keep people from getting a huge jump on the bulk. However, there needed to be adequate time for people to sign up so the 5 days before the contest officially begins has been allotted for that. (Someone posting their weight on the 26th isn't going to have any advantage over someone posting weight on the 30th)

    If you started your bulk before Sept 26th you can't count that weight. You can only record your CURRENT weight as of the 26th

    So start posting your stats NOW cause OCT 30th will be too late.

    not if you let it =)

    Remember guys "before" pictures are a must. Take hellagrant's post as example. I remember what exposure and interest the first thread got don't let the sign-up pass you by, I think I may extend it to wednesday because when I tried to post the thread on friday 26th it wouldn't let me. I'd love to hit the 50-70 contestants that showed interest in the last thread.

    I'll have to gain a bunch of weight just to be skinny, and then a bunch more to even look like I lift weights.
