The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Great video. I love how he's wearing Khaki shorts with a belt. Reminds me of "It's always sunny in philadelphia" The brother and sister go to a gym with the sister wearing jeans.

    Hah, the music really made it hilarious. That looked so very painful though. His hips and shoulders are rotating opposite direction every rep.

    The best part, IMO, is that he held that bar up for 2 minutes.

    That had me rolling, reminding me of the Family Guy where Peter trips and just says "Ahhhhhhh" for like two minutes. Music was epic too.

    This. When I first saw the length was going to be two minutes I thought it must be multiple sets or something, lol.

    Haha, music is awesome! Was he trying to work his weaker side by misloading the bar? Lmao. I love how he was twisted to the side even while holding it at arms length!

    TRUST ME. I've seen this guy for about 4 years.

    Once, I tried giving him some feedback - he got SUPER defensive
    Another, he asked for a spot - freaked out

    People just leave him alone and let him do what he wants. Whatever.

    The vid's got over a 1000 views and rising. Someone go post it on bb.com and watch it rise even higher.

    Please ask him what he's up to. Just do it casually. I assume he's trying to build up his weaker side but the whole thing is insane. The internet wants to know.

    Please tell me that was staged. Every time he twisted to the side I kept waiting for him to slip a disc.

    NICE. Def not staged. Ask Danisleet - he works out with me some times and has seen this dude working out the same way. It's a roll.
