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?

    One muscle group

    If you could have one "outstanding" muscle group (biceps, quads, delts, etc.), what would it be?

    for size, i'd go with lats. thick backs are badass.

    however..... my back doesnt really have problems growing, but my shoulders do. so if a genie came to me and granted me size on any muscle group of my choice, i'd go with shoulders.

    Shoulders for me too.
    Although, I could really use some leg size, but shoulders draw more attention.

    back for sure...kind of a 3 in 1 deal. It would give you wider shoulders and a proportionally bigger chest to waist ratio. Plus a big muscular back just looks impressive.

    I'm blessed with chicken legs so I would love to have a decent set of calves. Massive shoulders would be a close 2nd.

    Shoulders are the most standout imo. They're one area I feel can be disproportionately larger yet still maintain a aesthetic flow. Fortunately I'm blessed in that department so I choose calves.

    +1 for shoulders.

    A friend once told me that shoulders + back = frame for your body. Of course he's got great delts, a great back but not so great legs (by comparison). Oh well, can't have everything lol.

    Back, not just lats or upper back but both because one without the other looks kind of silly. Imagine huge lats with zero upper back .

    Bigger arms....there I said it.


    My back is probably my best bodypart, but I have freakishly long arms for my size so packing mass onto my arms takes a WHILE.

    After that, massive quads.
