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?

    this is what my back looked like before (7weeks ago). You can see how bad the curve on my back is. My broken back and that curve took me out for 1.5 years.

    "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'm 5'8" at about 165-167lbs I move up and down. 7 weeks ago I weight 155lbs.

    Right now I'm going to lean up get my body fat way down. I have some calipers but I'm not if I'm using it right. according to it I'm at about 10-11%.

    My next go after I lean up is to get my weight up to 190-200lbs.

    What do you guys think? I would like some feed back.


    I'm focusing on my chest I need to get it bigger. Also my legs They grew the most 2.5" but they still look pretty small, but because of my back I'm pretty limited( no heavy squats) from anything resting on and compressing my back.

    very nice size in arms/shoulders.

    in 7 weeks i think you've made the same progress that some people do while taking steroids, so you got a lot to be proud of.

    p.s. - you look sort of familiar, where in So Cal are you?

    Nice improvement for 7 weeks. Your chest looks like it filled out a bit, as well as your lats.

    Thanks.
    I've always had big biceps it run in the family. I've never really worked out my traps untill lately.

    I have about a month to cut and get really lean. I've been working hard my legs, chest and triceps( My triceps are fine but you can never have too much tri.)

    If you guys see any way I can improve let me know.

    Looking good man, keep up the good work.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."
