The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Not at all.

    Argentina pickd up their game yes, but our defense proved stronger than their attack.

    There was no luck in it.

    At the end of the day, we stuffed them, so ner ner nee ner ner

    Ole Ole Ole Ole! Ole Ole! Mexico 2 - Ecuador 1

    A win from Mexico which was expected. Borgetti and Torrado scored the goals. Pretty nice goals too. Ecuador surprised us with a goal on the 5th minute of the game. It was obvious Mexico was the better team though. Viva Mexico cabr0nes!

    Croatia beat Italy!!! WTF!!! That only complicates things up in the group though. Hmmm...Mexico beat Croatia and Croatia beat Italy....I wonder what is gonna happen when Mexico plays Italy...
    "In the grand scheme of things, both things are quite superficial(obsessed with being muscular&ripped and incredibly strong). And yet lifting can teach you so much. My time at the gym--at least when I'm lifting--is invariably the high-point of my day. There aren't any questions; I almost don't even think. I go into an almost meditative trance-like state. Day-to-day worries become insignificant. I'm focused solely on the weight, and my reason for existence is clear. To move the bar and to improve on what I accomplished last time. Seldom are things so simple." - Blood&Iron

    "Most people cannot understand what burns in our blood, the gym is our addiction and iron is our drug. People don't understand why we commit hours a day to a goal where progress is so small it seems immeasurable, why we do cardio instead of watch TV, why eat 6 meals a day, why we insist on ordering diet soda or how we can drink skim milk. Most people will simply never grasp why we refuse to settle for a mediocre body." - Severed Ties

    Portugal 4 Poland 0. That's what I like to see. The game against Korea will be huge, with the winner moving on. I picked Portugal from the get-go and I still think they will take it all. Their goalie had a bad first half against the US, but that's behind him. Pauleta and Figo are just getting warmed up. Watch out Koreans!

    Asians all the way. What a great victory by the Japanese.
    Btw the US only managed a tie when they should have lost. It looks like the Orientals are coming up slowly. I will predict them to be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years.

    I think that Portugal should watch out. The Koreans are very very fit and that's the opposite of the Portugues side condition.

    The Koreans just need a point.Remember that the USA have already 4 points and they will likely take 3 more points against Poland.
    So, they secure the qualification and then Portugal must only win the S.Korea.. They play in their home.

    Maki,China sucks and Japan's defensive line does the same..

    S.Korea is by far the best Asian team that I've ever seen playing in a World Cup.

    Maybe so, but they are in the best division out of the 3 Asian teams and will not advance. Korea is in good shape because they wouldn't be there if they were not. That's all they have going for them. I didn't see one player on the team who could kick with their left foot (Beckham is the only one-footed player in the game who is any good cuz his right foot is soooo damn good). Skill is more important than conditioning. I learned that last year while playing in the Under-18 division and having an exhibition against a men's team. We could run circles around them, but the score wasn't pretty. Skill is far more important than fitness and the Koreans lack it.
    They should have beaten the US easily. The penalty shot was a joke, the missed open net in the 89th minute was nothing short of pathetic and when they play Portugal it will be men vs. boys and Portugal will show why they are going all the way.

    Nah, you think that England can win the Cup?The team that qualified to the World cup by a lucky goal from Beckham?
    The team that could have lost 1-2 to Greece? Lol...
    Im glad they re playing against Denmark. Now let's see what's gonna happen.
    The only thing that makes me wanna watch an England game is the Michael Owen. He's a superstar. Along with Raul they're the best attackers..

    And who said that the Sweds should have won with 3-0?
    Did you watch the game? Really?

    I admit that Argentina was not what I was expecting.. They do have quality players but they were not a team.

    I wish Spain could win the Cup. They re my second favourite team and I had predicted that they will play against Argentina in the final. Now that Argentina is out, they get my vote.
