The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Let the Phil Heath era begin. Hopefully bbing goes back to its roots and Aesthetics come more into play rather shear muscle mass.

    It ended as quickly as it began, with his announcement of retirement. He looked amazingly awesome.

    Phil Heath did not retire... I think people are speculating Jay will retire (or he may have announced it, I am not sure).

    Yeah, we discussed it last night, and how he may retire but didn't want to take away from Phil's achievements. Which if that's the case, that's pretty awesome of him.

    Kai looked better.

    I'm actually a little surprised at Dexter Jackson's placement. Seems that he could have maybe been 4 instead of 6 this year.
    Looks like he's just not going to get much respect from the judges anymore.

    Phil looked great as expected. When I saw him for the first time at last year's Mr. O, I thought that he would definitely be the next Mr. O.

    Bump. If no one's seen his routine yet it's pretty cool. Great music.

    My mind and focus has been so far from lifting that I forgot about the Mr. Olympia. I finally looked up to see who won the Olympia about 3 weeks ago. When I looked at the first picture of Phil Heath I just thought "Wow, he took it for sure."

    He looked awesome. That's the largest I've seen a BBer along with that degree of aesthetics and symmetry. It was pretty damn amazing. I'd say that the real competitions will be held at the Arnold.

    Now Kai Greene gets to be Jay Cutler for the next few years placing 2nd behind Phil. The competition at future Olympia's will be places 3 through whatever.

    There are a lot of guys on the come up, so our top 6 should be looking more and more different.

    Dexter, Jay and Victor should be nearing the end of their BBing careers. That opens up a few spots. Dennis Wolfe is always iffy, Kai can be rather off with conditioning, and Branch might not have much longer.

    I'm looking forward to BBing over the next few years. Thank you Phil Heath. I think with him as the top dog it will make BBing a bit more intriguing.
