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?

    At the grand old age of 47 aM I maybe expecting too much coming to bodybuilding.

    I'm 46 (right behind ya) and continue to make progress every month. I just have to train a little smarter and make sure I allow for enough recovery between sessions. What we lack in recovery ability, we make up for with patience and persistance.

    There are many good bodybuilders in their 40's and 50's.

    As Off Road mentioned as long as you listen to your body and train smart you can make some outstanding progress.

    I'm not quite as old, but I'm no spring chicken either. There should be no difference other than it takes a little longer.
