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?

    Electrodes to my abdomials

    I am using a thingy with cabels that has pads that delivers electrisity in various degrees, it really flexes my abs, but does it work? Ive let it flex my abs around 300times today, half an hour or so, I am going to do it over a period of 4 weeks , an hour each day, seeing if its going to bring my abs out.
    A big thanks to all my friends in the USA, I am deeply grateful for your hospitality and kindness.

    diet brings out abs. And most of those things are not intense enough to build muscle. Crunches would most likely work much better.
    Diet is key, the calorie is king

    "Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
    Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination
    alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
    Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933)

    There was something about this in the Men's Journal.

    They said it's bullshit. It's not powerful enough to work your abs so much that they're going to get bigger and being on this forum you know you can't lose fat specifically in that one area or any isolated "spot". Also, don't put it on your chest with the idea that you're going to get a cut chest...they pointed out how dumb it is do zap your heart with electricity ;-).

    I hope you didn't spend too much money on it, dude.

    Isn't there a theory that Bruce Lee died as a result of complications due to his use of a machine that shot electricty into his chest? Maybe i just saw that in the movie... Anyway, i have a couple of friends that just got them and they're gonna tell me how it goes.

    Bruce Lee died of an allergic reaction to a headache/cold pill given to him by a chinese actress (Betty Li Ting?) whom he was having an affair with at the time. He complained of a headache, she gave him the medication and he then took a nap in her apt/house and never woke up. He died of a cerebral edema. Of course most biographies on his life will "forget" the part where he was cheating on his wife and taking not so mild dosages of illegal drugs towards the tail end of his career & life. He didn't seem like a bad guy from most of what I've read but he was certainly human like the rest of us. That being said the attempts by certain media to denigrate his life & character and also the attempts to deify him irk me somewhat.

    Take care,

    Rock, over here the companies who sell those things are being targetted by the A.C.C.C (australian, competiion, comsumer, c-word) for being fraudelant in their claims.

    Yes and here in the US too. There are some studies that claim electrostimulation & Russian Stim to be beneficial as a adjunct to regular training but these studies were conducted on 5,000 dollar professional medical machines. The ones you see in the back of health & fitness magazines and on late night tv are pieces of crap that won't do a single thing for you.

    Train your abs exactly as any other muscle. Doing it everyday is not the way to go. Heavy weights + progression.

    Electrostim devices are good for recovery purposes of any muscle after its been heavily trained.

    Otherwise, dont' expect much.
