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?

    Is it possible to have "Pop Eye" arms?

    Not that I personally want to train to have them. I was just pondering this, while eating breakfast. Is it possible through training, to have triceps tripple the size of you're biceps?

    i guess you could, if you only trained your tris and forearms, but did little or nothing for your biceps

    i just looked at a pic of popeye, its not his triceps, his upper arms are pretty small. its his forearms that are huge. a bunch of steroids and nonstop wrist rolls would probably accomplish this

    Popeye has big forearms. That's it. And it would probably be possible if you really only trained your forearms. Might not get as crazy exaggerated as Popeye's, but look at some of the pro arm wrestlers. They only work out one arm and stay super skinny everywhere else to stay in lower weight classes.

    American cars are like fat people, sure, they have a lot of power, but they're not built well, and they have all that useless weight, plus they make both make funny noises.

    feel free to aim me, nejar462 im on a lot. Don't know much to warn you dudes, but im good at conversations.

    Belial in reference to Ronnie Coleman, "Some people say he still has blood in his steroid stream, but I doubt it. Gas isn't one of the side effects, but that massive bloated overly muscular freak of nature circus sideshow appearance might be what tips most people off."

    like others said popeye didn't have big upper arms. Yes you can have tri's 3x's the size of your biceps. The tricep is a much bigger muscle than your bicep. Take a look at Flex Wheeler. His tri's were insane. Most think they were filled with oil though never proved.
