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?

    What Part(s) Of Your Body Do You Guys Shave.. ?

    I am wondering about this.

    Personally I dont compete at all but I always shave my biceps. Just a habit I guess I dont like anything taking away their definition and vascularity. I dont get hair on my chest / abs really but sometimes Ill shave between my pecs Ill get a few dark hairs.

    What about you guys?

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    Don't have hair on my arms, or back. Shave my chest, abs, and crotch. I'm sure you all wanted to know that. Gotta be damn careful with a razor down there.

    You have no hair on your arms at all? Or you have light hair like blonde hair or whatever? Thats what I have at least.

    Very fine hair. Barely visible, very short, blond hair. Can't see it unless you look very carefully at the arm in silhouette.

    Damn my arms were like that until I shaved them like a f*cking moron. Now the hair is more obvious.

    In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.

    Am I the only one who finds this type of question rather frightening?
