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?

    Since bf% measurement is difficult to do at home, I thought it might be useful if some people could post a picture (of themselves or someone else) along with what they think bf% is.

    If we could get a range of pictures from 7% to 20% it would help put things in perspective.

    I just checked Donnie Brasco's picture at 11%, man if that's 11% then I must be 20%

    Any volunteers?

    Those are 2 accurate portrayals...

    7% usually invloves veins everywhere, even the abs..

    BF is probably the most lied about thing on the internet, and often, not on purpose. People just have no idea, and guess a # that sounds good. Like when they claim to deadlift 500 lbs.

    When you says veins everywhere, do you mean veins visible or bulging out? Just wondering since I've noticed alot of veins becoming visible(not bulging out tho) as of late on myself

    LOL, Not aimed at ronan.

    At 14 year olds who weigh 150 and claim over 500 lb deadlifts.

    Not realy here, but at mm.com. Hey, let em lie. They need some way to feel good about themselves. They weigh 150.

    BTW, alptraum, they won't get to be bulging unless pumped. If you wake up with bulging veins, go to the ER, asap, LOL.

    You forgot to mention Lats, that's one handed with a reverse grip.
    ...it's more friendly for trainers to say, "yeah, we can help you tone up!" rather than saying, "yeah, we can help you get rid of that fat ass!"

    Come on guys, no body in the teens of body fat?

    I'd post my pic but I really have no idea whether I'm 15% or 25%.

    Don't be shy
