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?

    This isn't the best impression that could've been made on my first day as a member but I'll give it a shot. Sometimes when I poop, after I wipe, I bring it up and take a whiff. Then there's this phase in which I second guess as to how I've gotten as far as I have in life. Anyway, it usually happens when my iPod playlist hits my one and only Britney Spears record 'Oops, I did it again'. The irony that lies in that.

    I can't watch The Notebook without crying at the end. But right after both times I watched it I got laid, so....

    It bothers me A LOT to see lack of appreciation for life. Whether it be a lizard, bird, cat on the road, whatever, I HATE seeing dead animals and the fact that no one seems to care.

    I too watch The Hills.
    I also enjoy very slow, emo songs from Breaking Benjamin and Shinedown (I'm predominantly a death metal fan)
    I weight 200 pounds and can barely squat 250.
    (not sure if this qualifies) I'm having a midlife crisis at age 19. *(I'm currently doing my undergrad, hoping to get to Med School, but Chem 2 is a mother ****ing bitch, and its making me question all my intentions of being a doctor. My friends and I spent the entire class yesterday trying to think of a get rich scheme or some sort of invention)*

    Remind me to never let you spot me from behind while doing squats.

    What's your major?

    I was biochem, and I really didn't care for organic. We had all our tests at night, so you could spend the whole day worrying about them, same with my physics classes. Talk about stressful. I feel for you.

    Yeah, it really pisses me off when I'm getting under the bar for squats and that commercial comes on. I've already unracked the weight and just about started squatting and it came on so I had to re-rack it and change the channel.
    22 - 5'10@236lbs!
    Bench - 325 (old)
    Squat - 455x2 (old)
    Deadlift - 500(old)

    Total: 1280lbs 100% raw




    The key to my exercise program is this one simple truth: I hate my body.

    You'll tough it out. Orgo Chem is usually one of the hardest classes for pre-med students, once you get through it you'll feel a lot better.

    Tits: bigger is not better.
    I'm not turned on by huge mellons. That's my admission. It seems to be some sorta flag of manhood to worship big fatty swelled up basketballs on a woman's chest.
    I take some nice perky C-cups. Thanx.

    I went to Iowa state (graduated last spring) and we have a really challenging chemistry and biochem department.
    Orgo isn't the end of the world, it's basically like learning a new language, you stay on top of it and expose yourself to the material regularly it's not awful.
    The kids that did poorly in it were either slackers, or the kids that thought they could cram it all in 2 nights before the exam.

    EDIT: BTW school can really suck for pre-med kids. Getting in a B in a class is basically failing it, and it gets pretty old. Anyway if you have any questions or anything feel free to PM me. I'm very sympathetic to the pre-med college experience.

    Strange, I actually liked bio and organic chem. I wasn't pre med or anything like that. I also enjoyed qual too. But them I'm a lab guy so the class work wasn't that great, but I still managed to ace it.

    I will be sure to PM you a lot, whether its specific chem questions or just questions about anything pre-med etc. I appreciate it.

    I gotta step my game up. Rite now I got an 85 in the class. Its just so frustrating when im taking a MC quiz or exam and i get an answer listed but its not correct. My prof loves to throw us off that way. Next exam wednesday and its on vapor pressure, phase diagrams, molarity/alility/solutions, colligative properties, and rate of rxns. I know what im doing for the most part but im sure my grade will come back as a c or d.......
