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?

    isnt it obvious! Longer sleeves restrict the flow of blood and the proper nutrients to the arm that are crucial to any athlete!

    To be honest, that is what softball players do around Tennessee, from little girls through college. They cut some lengths of ribbon and tie their sleeves up...

    But hey, I ain't gonna suggest anything like that to that guy!
    Most people pray for a lighter load in life...ever thought of praying for a stronger back?

    That's very weird.

    I found myself doing this alot to for no reasonable explination. Any guy over 220 also seems to do it, like its a fat guy thing, I just find myself doing it as I psyche up for a big lift or something... strange.
    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.

    I don't do that, but after I start sweating alot, I roll up my sleeves. I find that the sleeves stick to my arms and it really bugs me.
    Playing basketball, I wear a tank under the Tshirt and once I start sweating, the Tshirt comes off. No sleeves to bug me.
    Give chalk a chance.
