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?

    Cool. Nice gym. My dad has that same dip/pull-up station. That's what I got started on.

    The stereo is in the corner behind the weight tree (opposite side of the tree from the power cage).

    Get some pics of you doin deads and squats.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Yeah, squats, skulls, tbar rows, and heavy pullups sound pretty good.

    They are in the corner to the left of the power cage if you are standing in front of it. I have 8 45s, 2 35s, 4 25s, 4 10s, and 2 5s. I think I will get a couple more 45s soon.

    Looks good.

    I was thinking bout setting up a similar gym, but honestly for what I pay for a membership at my gym it's not worth it.
