The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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 good. I must say, however, that picture isn't really one I think you should post on a bodybuilding website. It looks sexually suggestive, which is not something I really want to see on this site (especially not in a guy).

    tuttut Be that as it may, it looks like he is trying to pose for an underwear ad to me. He is not posing in a traditional bodybuilding manner, he is posing like a underwear person.

    lmao, chris is right.
    "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."

    Mason is dead on. Geeze dude, next time if you pose a pic, please make it more 'bodybuilding' like and less of what you were posing like before... And no thongs please..

    Looking good fastfred---nice work.

    Have to agree that the pic looks like something out of a Hanes or Jockey advertisement though.

    What were/are your stats. You look proportioned to me. Nice build and cut, but from how close your head is to the cealing I'm assuming your atleast 6'3", 6'4". If your not that tall I'd say you could bulk your legs more. I think if your upper body were any bigger that your legs would look out of place.
