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?

    the only use i can see the total gym having is maybe general muscle conditioning for the elderly , it doesnt provide enough resistance to promote any muscle growth worth mentioning. invest in some free weights and a bench , pull up/dip station etc...and even better a gym membership

    I say it sucks.. You are better off with a bowflex than that.. But the best is a gym membership.

    I've never used a Total Gym. I have a Bowflex and started doing HIT-style workouts last July. I gained 15 pounds by Christmas. It's only good if you use the squat attachment, IMO. I ran out of resistance for calf exercises with it, and bought a seated calf raise machine and plates for it. Over a four month period I gradually shifted over to using free weights almost exclusively. A Bowflex would do you some good for a while, but you won't end up looking like the guys in the commercials, using a Bowflex. I doubt the Total Gym would be as good as a Bowflex.
