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?

    I don't want to be a dick, but those are some of the worst videos I have ever seen. Who is taking them? Are they looking at what they are filming? Angles are awful. Half your set? I just don't understand why you are posting those anywhere.

    Congrats cause you are being a dick, aint that one of the forum rules not to be one. And I apologize if I am not worried about how good a video of the training is taken, I am more worried about the training itself. Its not bragging rights, seems like you have it the other way around.

    Actually no, if that were true you wouldn't have posted this video.

    I am with CP, absolutely pointless video. People will post vids for two reasons:

    1) Form Critique
    2) To show the rest of us the impressive feat they just accomplished.

    Pitbull, you've been here for a total of one day and have posted 3 videos of your curls and tricep extensions. Not that you can't do this, but WBB isn't really that kind of place. As mchicia said, people post videos here for two reasons:

    1) Form Critique
    2) To show the rest of us the impressive feat they just accomplished

    These videos are neither. An impressive feat would be a big bench, dead, squat, etc. Again, I'm not saying you can't post these here, but I will warn you that you can expect to get flamed for posting this kind of stuff.

    Its clear that you all want videos to be big production events, I dont go into the gym thinking I need to film a video to show off. Its clear that many of you do. These were taking from a cell phone last minute idea. Its ok, I see this forum is full of dicks and people more worried about a video then actually working out.

    Pitbull, this is a forum where people post videos in order to receive advice on how to improve their technique (and therefore the weight they're lifting) or, as mchicia1 and RBB said, to post a video of an accomplishment to show everyone who supports them what they have achieved. you'll get lots of support here too if you want it man.

    Bench Press: 110kg (242lb) x 1

    This is not bodybuilding.com. It's pretty obvious you're just fishing for compliments on your arms, I can't see any other reason why you'd post videos such as those. C'mon man they're side-ways ffs. What kind of comments were you expecting? This forum is not full of dicks, it's full of intelligent people that tell it like it is. We're not going to sugar-coat shit just to boost your ego. If you want our honest opinions, that's what you'll get.

    Welcome to the forum, but maybe not the best way to introduce yourself. Do you compete and how have you done so far if so? Maybe the other members would be more interested in some videos of the compounds, ie bench, squat, deadlift. Those are typically what most of us post here. Some do physique shots, which I guess these would qualify for.

    I personally loved the video. It's not everyday you get to see some dude pumping out some sweet tricep press downs.

    Fixed that for ya. I also wanted to point out we've got some pretty solid body builders here, we've got guys that bench over 600lbs raw, deadlift 800, and squat some ridiculous numbers. We've got ironman competitors, crossfit guru's, and some crazy gym rats. What it really sounds like, is that you've conformed to bodybuilding.com's mentality for far too long. Here you've got a choice, you can ditch those ways, move on to bigger and better things by dropping the douche mentality and posting pics and vids of your tri's, or GTFO and go back to bodybuilding.com, cuz I guess in your opinion, because we don't salivate over your Tri's, we're all dicks.

    The moment I saw press downs I started laughing.

    Pretty sure it was some guy trying to promote his product/brand on his shirt or whatever. If I ever want to max out my cable press downs, I'll be sure to give you a call.

    That was the worst video ive seen in a lng time. Videoing an accessory movement for all is the lamest thing lol. Video yourself pressing some huge CG presses or such and then you may get some compliments. Oh, and the close shot of your Pitbull nutrition emblem in the middle of the set sealed this vid as total douchebaggery..
