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?

    A Motivational Story Posted Here

    I remember somebody (might have been Off Road or any other regs here), posting a story several months ago. The story was set up about some guy going to a christmas party and talking to another guy about weightlifting. It was a motivational story and I remember the first guy was telling the other that he better be in his garage, lifting weights early Christmas morning if he ever wanted success.

    I know, I sound dumb, but I only remember this story vaguely. Does anybody know what I am talking about and can post the story?

    That wasa post from Daniel that he got from somewhere else. I don't rmember the name of it though, so it would be hard to search for. He was basically thanking his relative for giving him motivation to not be a lazy slob.

    You probably saw it in the chat section, somebody asked for it and I pointed them to the stickies in this forum. Its always there for future reference.

    I've read it a few times and its always a good read.
