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?

    lol at wannabe mma people

    i was doing cardio today and this pack of rabid 5'4 shitheads was practicing their routine and acting like morons. if you fit this bill and you live in castle/deadly force state and you pull shit like that on someone in day to day life, be prepared for an unexpected death sentence. a lot of average people carry with a ccw these days and are ready, if not eager, to use. beware

    What's wrong with training for fighting? I know there are some douchbags involved in mma but not any more so than any other kind of training.

    I get a big kick out of the guys that wear smmedium mma (Affliction and Tapout) t-shirts and look like they've never stepped in the gym. A tight shirt doesn't make you strong or a bada$$ it makes you look stupid.

    nothing at all is wrong with the concept of training mma. in fact, i would say that people that are the most proficient fighters are probably most humble relative to the ones who act like douches (i.e., talk softly carry big stick)

    however, for those that are not humble and act aggressive in the normal course of day to day life, for example, you are acting in what could be considered to be a deadly manner. in certain states, physical intimidation, physical force, or even perceived physical threat can be rebutted with self-defense up to and including deadly force w/ firearm. in summary, keep walking tall with your elbows out tapout & affliction. the ccws are waiting for an opportune moment to put you down when you get out of line.

    I think the discussion is at "wannabe" mma fighters...you know the guys who shadow box in the mirror in between supersetting bench press and curls.

    Yeah I have been sick all week and was high on cough syrup with codeine last night when I read this so suffice to say I mis-read it.

    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    We got one of those at the gym but he don't even lift weights. Just shadow boxing AND jumping rope with no rope, lol. He caught everyone's attention last week when he was using the seated ab machine with his face (serious).

    I really think they should remove mirrors from gyms. I have a private gym and I refuse to throw mirrors up. They screw up your form if you try to watch yourself and it leads to people doing dumb things like shadow boxing in front of it.

    Ugh. My town is full of these people. Seriously. FULL OF THEM. Luckily their posse's show up to the gym for about a month, lose motivation/interest/whatever and then you don't see them for about 6 months until they come back out of shape. They then repeat the process. However, I will say there are also some dedicated, really good MMA fighters that are cool guys to hang around.

    Yea most douchbags/arrogants f*cks I've seen even try MMA always quite sooner or later. When I trained BJJ every single guy was so humble and cool to train with. The guys who were douchebags were always gone before they even left white belt.

    Like this one guy who tried to tell me I was concentrating on the details to much in BJJ lol..after I dominated him in sparring being extra rough (hate when people screw up my training) I never saw him again.

    The stories I've heard from my professor..almost unbelievable really. Guys walking in off the streets challenging him to a fight and things like that.
