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?

    Do any of the older guys on these boards have kids who they are or will get into weight lifting?

    I started when I was 14 and I was wondering what age you would let your kids start at?

    I started working out when I was about 13-14 years old, my kids are 3 and 2 so they have awhile. I would probably wait till they were at least 13 or so. I say that now, but things might be different 10 years from now.

    I don't have any kids, but I started in 9th grade, so I'd say that would be a good starting age. If I had kids, i'd encourage them to take weights in highschool/junior high

    If you wanted your kids to become football players what age would you get them to start? I want to live my dreams through my kids (I started too late to make it as a footballer) I was thinking 13/14.

    I have 3 boys. My two oldest boys have 2 PL meets each under their belts.
    They are 14 and 17.
    They both have decent numbers for thier age weight.

    Wow you guys started early! I started when I was 18. If I had kids if would get them to start training at around 14-15. Really it depends if they have matured. If I can see they are late bloomers I would prefer to wait a little personally.

    In terms of guitar... before they can walk.
    Brad08 has some insight for people who don't understand... anything.
    This is so ****ing ******ed it's almost beyond belief. So, if you eat 3k, you will automatically gain 3k worth of fat or muscle? Incredible. And here I am eating all this food, yet maintaining my weight. Fascinating.

    You're one of those pussies that counts his almonds I bet.
