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?

    Glad to see things are going well for the most part, hopefully that cyst clears up soon and you'll be good to go.

    The old-school remedy for Ganglion cysts is called Bible therapy, where you just take a book and smash it haha Glad you went to the doc's for it though.
    Thanks Dave, the squat has been on fire lately and everything else seems to be in a rut but that's expected I suppose.

    Good news! The cyst popped on it own last night. It was getting progressively worse everyday untill last night and it was like instant relief. I was going over to rocks place tonight or tomorrow and he was going to take the bible to it. Luckly I did not have to go that route. I'm going to keep up with the heavy squatting but keep all pressing movements light untill I get back from vacation on the 7th.

    That's awesome man, and lifts always seem to go that way...once you get in a groove with one, some other one starts to lag...I guess that's just the nature of the beast.


    Anyways, enjoy your vacation Sam cause we all know you deserve it. You got a busy life, and consistently kill the weights...so this vacation has definitely been earned my man.
    Don't asker for a light load, but a strong back.
