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?

    Holy **** are you arguing with a dexa scan? Do you know what it is and how it works.


    You are small,
    you look like a woman,

    and now you are ******ed.

    I'm out of this forum (i am sure I wont be missed)

    The Mr. Olympia Winners


    Dexter Jackson 2008 (Current) 5′6.5″ 230 lb.
    Jay Cutler 2006,2007 5′9″ 255 lb.
    Ronnie Coleman 1998-2005 5′10″ 270 lb.
    Dorian Yates 1992-1997 5′10″ 255 lb.
    Lee Haney 1984-1991 5′11″ 235 lb.
    Samir Bannout 1983 5′8″ 210 lb.
    Chris Dickerson 1982 5′6″ 190 lb.
    Franco Colombu 1976, 1981 5′4″ 185 lb.
    Arnold 1970-1975, 1980 6′1″ 230 lb.
    Frank Zane 1977-1979 5′9″ 185 lb.
    Sergio Oliva 1967-1969 5′8″ 225 lb.
    Larry Scott 1965-1966 5′7″ 205 lb

    This chart comes from http://www.bodyrecomposition.com/mus...an-aragon.html

    Take a look at those numbers. Many of these steroid users with around 3-6% BF had 200 lbs or less of BODY weight.

    You should also look into what the FFMI is. A guy at around 6'2 with 10% bodyfat with a FFMI of 25.5 would weigh 220 lbs. It's doubtful you'll be getting above a 25.5 index without drugs. It just simply will not happen. Also, you should look up Casey Butt.

    Actually, I'll just make this easier for you since you seem to be so stubborn. Just click this link:

    http://www.weightrainer.net/potential.html

    The predictions are very accurate and work. Sorry to put a limit on what you can gain, but it's just the reality of things. Being too optimistic is just ignorant of the actual science.

    I'll save my objections to your DEXA for another night.

    Generally, if you read a piece of advice on the internet, assume it's wrong until proven otherwise. This applies especially to "conventional wisdom". -Belial

    Did this really just happen on this forum? Did we just get a bit carried away? This had the makings of being a solid thread for advice, but low and behold what it turned out into.

    Still lots of good advice here as long as it's listened to.

    And no worries, I think the troll said he was leaving

    I'm a little late to this party, I just saw this thread now...but mass can certainly be destroyed. Losing bodyfat for example. Did you mean "energy"?

    Yes, I did. I.E The energy from fat is simply used as energy elsewhere.

    More specifically to this thread, matter cannot be created out of thin air. So being in an energy deficit is not going to let the formation of matter(fat) to occur. It was ironic for the OP to state that he was consuming more kcals and still losing fat. Instead he claimed that fat as a macro nutrient itself was causing fat gains when in reality, we know this to be not true.

    But thx for catching the smaller details. No need for me to edit it now :P
