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 think not. Is he even going for a pro card? There isn't any contest that he can win a card in in the next 4 days and he probably has to qualifie for that sort of an event also. But no, no pro card.

    No he's not going for his pro card at the NPC Michigan State show. He's just doing a show just to do it I believe.

    The way IFBB has been giving away pro cards, I wouldn't doubt it. The show he is doing will propbaly only qualify him for a chance to win one. But there are ALOT of NPC competitors that are alot closer to earning a pro card that he has to beat.

    He's hoping to earn his pro card at some point in his career which I think he's ready for now, but I could just be saying that because I'm a huge fan of the guy.

    Kroc is the man!!! I wish him all the best... Former Jar-Head too! (Hoo- rahh)

    Who can forget the Kroc row? I liked him better as a PL'er though... Hopefully he'll come back to the dark-side soon!

    His conditioning should blow away everyone at the State level and he should win. I think this would qualify him for Nationals but he'll be facing guys who are bigger and just as conditioned. Looking at Matt right now I wouldn't say he is ready to be a pro, do i think he can become pro? Absolutely he understands everything there is about training, science, nutrition & mental preparation. He also has the support team to get him there. I wish him luck.

    I think he mentioned in his log that he was going to make a run at the 242 record later this year.

    I'm sure if he keeps at it, he'll earn his pro card real soon.

    I think I read Shelby say he is looking to get him into a national show next year. Maybe Shelby will pop his head in and chime in.

    If I'm reading things right, looks like Kroc took first in his weight class.

    Excellent results by Kroc and Shelby. I'm looking forward to seeing what Kroc does in his next contest.

    That's really good for his first BB show. It seems that it was a pretty close call for overall title.
