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?

    Measurements out of contex without bodyfat percetage numbers or at least a waist measurement are useless.

    214 lbs., 47" chest, and 16" arms is one thing @ 20% BF, and a whole other thing @ 10% BF. Ya dig?

    Either way, I agree with Torrok's post above.

    Who wants to be average?!

    Wanna Be Average. LOL!

    It is currently a fad, at this writing, for boys to think they need a "six pack", although most of them don't have an ice chest to put it in.

    Exactly, who cares what's average? As long as you're happy with how you look. Me, I could use to trim off some bf%, but it's not a major goal right now. My arms aren't that big, but most people think they are, so who's to say?
