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?

    A pleasant experience at the gym today

    It seems that I've been proven wrong,that not all AAS users are stuck up snobs.Today at the gym while I was having my shoulder and traps workout I spot this huge guy working out and I think to myself "This is one huge guy,he uses AAS but huge none the less"Anyway he asks me where the gym's standing calf machine was since he's only visiting Winnipeg & didn't really know his way around the gym.To finish the story after my workout was done I started to talk to him again in the change room and asked him what his height and weight is.He told me he's 5'11 240lbs,so I ask him in a respectful tone if he uses AAS and he tells me that he's been bodybuilding for 12 years & did use AAS for about 2-3 years but for personal reasons decided to stop.I thanked him for being so honest and told him that it actually refreshing to meet a serious bodybuilder who has done AAS and is not stuck up and is honest about his use.Who knows maybe I'll be fortunate someday to meet another bodybuilder like that someday

    i meet guys like that alot.


    our guys around wbb are like that. i think it's an unfair assumption to say guys who juice are stuck up. no matter what people do, they are still human beings. and for the most part human being are generally pretty cool.

    Good point Tryska,although in my experience AAS users at my gym are stuck up and you can tell by the way they act and come across.But meeting and talking to this guy was a refreshing change

    There are many AS users who don't admit use because they still like shiat!

    I've had buddies from grade school who I have know all me life lie right to my face and say they quit. Little do they know I had just talked to the guy at the gym who told me he sold them stuff the week prior. That shiat kills me!

    You won't find many people who are honest about AS use. They would like to perpetrate like they have superior genetics...I find it comical!

    I think you should have hit him in the neck with a crowbar. Just cause he's bigger. But aside from that, realize that a stereotype is just that. The majority of big guys that juice that I know are incredibly nice, well-mannered dudes.

    Well Gyno Rhino I have no problem with being proven wrong.And who knows maybe in the near future my life will take an ironic twist and I'll end up having a good friend who's a muscled up AAS user

    Perhaps people don't comment on their use of AAS because......THEY'RE ILLEGAL....

    In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.

    I know that if I were using and some stranger came up to me and asked me, I'd tell him to get *****d.
