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?

    Relation between size and strength...

    someone on another site posted the following and i disagree. is he right?


    There is really no correlation between size and strength. Some wiry people are tremendously strong and many bodybuilders have very little functional strength. The kind of whole body, core strength that is required for riding (and most other athletic activities) can be gained without much muscle bulk.

    To gain a lot of size takes a very focused regimen of exercises designed for bulk and not strength and diet to pack on mass. If you don't do this, you will not gain a lot of size. Good, hard strength training will develop some muscles, but not huge size. You would just end up looking more athletic and toned from it.
