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?

    Critique?

    Just did that to get peoples attention.
    PLease answer
    Would the person in the second picture have to have as much muscle mass as the one in the first to look like he does?

    like would he have to get like the first photo and cut or could you just go like that without doing big bulks?

    The second dude doesn't look nearly as massive as the first. I guess what you're asking is; do you have to get much bigger, and then just cut everything away to end up with that ripped look? The answer to that is .. maybe. Looking like that depends heavily on genetics, training, and diet. There are lot of different ways to go about it.

    Well considering the only real difference in the picture is the amount of muscle. They both have ridiculously low body fat. If the model wanted to get as big as the body builder, he would have to put on some more muscle. If either of them cut any more they would probably be losing muscle at some point.

    Yeah I kind of think all these professional bodybuilders look really gross. They're so big it looks like they're deformed... The second one is alright but the veins are nasty.
