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?

    you LOOK huge,

    however what you're bench isn't.. how come?

    By looking at your arms/chest I'd say you're capable of 290-300 easy..

    don't get me wrong - you look very good.. just curious why your bench isn't bigger..

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    I haven't benched in a long time. I've been doing mainly dips and incline. I'd guess it's somewhere around 250 right now. I've never, I mean NEVER been a good bencher. I need to update my sig.

    Get your bench going man!!!!

    Beast arms though!!

    15% bf is a good look too. Not Fat and not wickedly skinny like freako bodybuilders....no offence to the competitive bodybuilders on the board, but for day to day use i reckon 12-16% is a good look.

    Maybe he doesn't care what his bench is. Particularly, I don't give a sh*t considering I'm not in any powerlifting competitions.

    Keep it up Neil, looking good.

    Well said heathj, and thanks for the kind words. I really don't concern myself too much with my bench. Whenever I get the typical "how much do you bench" question I usually say I don't know.

    Neil I don't want you to get the wrong idea about my post..

    I simply meant that your body looks like it does 300 fairly easy..

    sorry if you misunderstood or took it in a different way.
