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?

    Why did Lou lose to Arnold in the 1975 Mr. Olympia?

    I have the film "Pumping Iron" on DVD, and though I think I might know the reason, I'd like input from more experienced lifters as to why Lou Ferrigno lost to Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1975 Mr. Olympia.

    Lou was 25 or 30 pounds heavier than Arnold, but he got third place behind Serge Nubret and Arnold took first place. Were Arnold and Serge more cut, more defined? I understand that people with more mass sometimes lose to someone smaller, I just don't completely understand why.
