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?

    Powerlifting

    lol some dude posted this i think on elite aimed at a guy who transferred from PL to BB

    There was time, before the age of the weak and cold, a time when titans walked the earth, and it shook with the weight of their footsteps, as well as their extra body hair. A time when the giants of the iron world used the terms ripped and cut only to describe their foes after battle. A time when shredded applied only to the food they had hunted down and killed. Thousands of generations of athletes have gone before you, struggling valiantly against gravity, pain, and injury, to give you the legacy of the powerlifter.

    Which you have squandered.

    Every curl, every fly, every leg extension, takes you further down that dark and slippery slope known as bodybuilding. Seek not to be a part of this world, for you, however desperate, can still be saved. Seek instead the world of big iron, worship at the altar of the power rack, and become anointed with the sacred chalk. No one is so far gone that he cannot step onto the platform.

    This is the word of Kaz.

    I'd prefer we spend more time finding the common ground and helping ALL of our fellow lifters, regardless of what they call themselves.

    That's what the iron game is about.

    It's about that nod to another guy waiting in line at the store, both carts full of meat and eggs and fresh veggies, the knowing nod that says, "how ya doin, bro", because he too, is a lifter.

    Not a powerlifter, not a bodybuilder, not a strongman, not a pumper, but a lifter. Just like you.

    Sure, his goals might be different - he might be getting ready to step on stage in a regional bodybuilding show, and you might be getting ready to step on the platform in a local PLing meet... he might use steroids, you might not. But you are brothers of iron.

    Respect that.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    I liked it.


    Pauly just said all that because he wears those funny baggy pants and a fanny pack to the gym while doing curls in the power rack for an hour.
