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?

    Saw this on RxMuscle.com - "Muscle profiling" hits Belgium... Read this! Crazy!!!

    By the way, watch out America, stuff like this will begin happening here. You voted for it. You have to take the good with the bad. Our current administration has already meddled with your health care (compelling you to have insurance lest you pay a big fine). That is just the beginning... Let's hope the next administration does not want to control our daily lives to the same degree...

    Anyway, read on:

    Wow! Although I honestly don't see that happening in the United States any time in the near future, it's absolutely mind blowing that other countries are doing that.

    How terrorist profiling is against the law, and muscle profiling is not is beyond me. That's just ridiculous.

    What do you mean we voted for it? Did we seriously allow something like this?

    This is bullshit.

    Next thing they'll track down forum members and shit.
    The only lift I'm proud of at this point is a close stance, ass to grass zercher squat of 170kg x2 at 85kg bw. If only they held zercher squat competitions...

    This is reminiscent of Harrison Bergeron.

    Just another example of our world becoming more and more socialist... The government is our protector and benefactor. The world in Ayn Rand's great book Atlas Shrugged is so much like the US today it is getting scary...

    What's wrong with socialism?

    I don't mean to offend you, but I think many Americans aren't open to seeing things from a different point of view.

    Socialism is not synonymous with communism.

    This is not a surprise. The company I used to work for has increased health insurance rates if you smoke or have other unhealthy practices. That's the start, there's no limit to how far they can and will go. I often wonder how pro bodybuilder a dont get caught when it's so obvious, now I see that in the future they will. And I am pro steroids

    That's truly obsurd. Just think how overcrowded the prison systems would be if we adapted laws like these.

    Nice try

    But "we" didn't vote for this. Not only is this illegal under current law but is just as (if not more) likely with a "think of the children" republican President. If you disagree compare where Marijuana is legalized with who they voted for for president.
