The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Planet Fitness

    I know everyone has seen the Planet Fitness roid rage video, but after reading mor eon Planet Fitness, I agree with the guy. WTF is this "Lunk Alarm"? That's basically saying "sorry sir/madam, you are gaining muscle in a gym, you must leave"! I don't scream like a lot of other guys when lifting, but EVERYONE who lifts semi-heavy weights DOES grunt. I can't believe that they seriously terminate memberships for being strong, lifting heavy weights, grunting, wearing tank tops, etc. It's ridiculous. I've never been to one (and now I never will), but I was wondering if anyone here has and if the "lunk alarm" has gone off on you. Curious to hear some of the stupid reasons for the alarm going off on you.

    I was lured in by the $10 a month membership. One morning a guy next to me dropped his dumbbells from about six inches at the end of his set. That triggered the staff to sound the alarm. I cancelled my membership shortly after that.

    I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.

    Must be a chain gym like NYSC (New York Sports Club for those not in the know).

    My gym is a little-hole-in-the-wall in Manhattan. It's been around since the early 1970s. It's REALLY no-frills and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    I can think of a good handful of WBBers who would be at home there.
    me: so this is the "pump" you speak of
    me: I could never figure out what people were talking about
    Relentless: like an all over body hardon, yeah

    That's the gym I like. Hell, metroflex is a damn shop warehouse, the building it's in was made for car garages for mechanics, it's that style. Large concrete floor, 2 roll up doors, metal structure, hell that's it. Buddy if that gym ain't hardcore, idk what is. I want my garage to reflect metroflex, with all the quotes and scriptures on the wall, haha.
