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?

    I can finally start lifting again.

    Well, I am so excited that I had to make a post on here. After about a year and a half after being wounded in Afghanistan I was finally given the OK to start lifting again by my doctor today. Since getting hurt in 2008, I have undergone 3 surgeries, lots of PT, and shed about 50+ pounds.

    I am now sitting at a mere 130LB.

    I am starting at the gym tomorrow, and will be bulking until I get back to where I want to be. The doctor did give me some rules and regs though. No benching or military pressing, and my deadlifting has to be light for the next month or two.

    I am tired of being a shrimp and ready to be back to my old infantry self.

    Remember your priorities.
    It's great that you can start lifting again, but just remember, those gun attachments don't unlock themselves in MW2.
