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?

    Favorite and least favorite muscle

    I was wondering what one of your muscles are your guys' favorite, and which ones are your least favorite. As in size, appearence, or performance.

    My favorite would probably have to be shoulders. Least favorite is probably my chest. My biceps are a love-hate relationship.

    Favorite: Traps/Shoulders/Thighs

    Least Favorite: Calves... unfortunately I wasn't blessed with the Godzilla calves that the men on my mom's side have. They don't do **** and their calves are like boulders.

    Legs!


    I dislike legs also.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    Love training everything and love how everything looks. Especially lats, back all over and arms

    Calves and traps are lagging, look small

    My favourite is my legs and back.

    My least favourite is my shoulders (they're pretty weak), and my back (also weak). My strength to bodyweight ratio is pretty poor, and those two parts could be improved.

    So your back is one of your favorites, and one of your least favorites?

    Hahahaha. I can understand biceps being a little different (like if you're right handed, bicep might be - inch bigger), but how do your lats get effected enough to show?

    Yeah, hard to explain. It's my fav because it's made a lot of progress since I started, but it's still a bit weak for my goals.

    Legs are the best. Arms are the worst on me.

    It is currently a fad, at this writing, for boys to think they need a "six pack", although most of them don't have an ice chest to put it in.
