The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Are you a legend in your town?

    Just curious how you guys stand in your town/schools/work/etc.

    In high school I was known as "Big B" and everyone always compared themselves to me lol. I was the biggest kid in my high school *(muscle size wise) and was benching 315x10 in my freshmen year at 180

    Was pretty cool having people come up to me during lunch asking me questions about working out.

    Im from NYC, I have a one in 8000000 chance of standing out enough to become a legend.

    School wise, I was famous for knowing almost every answer to Jeapordy on TV, that and acting.

    Yes, I am. From a magazine spread and from a reality show appearance. Seriously. Won't list them here, though, but I'm well-known in my small town.

    I sent you a PM. And you've been to Trussville often? Hopefully not to party! Not much goes on in this sleepy town, although pretty good looking girls live here.

    I'm not super big like most of you guys but I have always been in good shape. In highschool I was a skinny little kid. I think I was like 150 at 5'7". I even played football, which was kinda crazy because I was seriously the smallest guy. I was more into running and being skinny in highschool, don't ask me why because I have no idea.

    Among my peers I am known as the fitness expert(even though I really am no expert). So I do give advice on training and diet. I don't go into specifics, I just tell people to workout hard and eat smart. The way I see it, people need to just get active first.

    I'm definitely not a legend in my town, but I do get a lot of emails from Nigerians asking me to help them claim their lotto winnings. I guess you could say I'm kind of their hero.

    I knocked a girl unconscious with my boner once. It's safe to say I'm pretty well known around my neck of the woods.
