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?

    I've always tempted to go to the dark side. There isn't a time that I think about lifting that I don't think about doing a cycle. How come I don't cross the line? I'm scared of the needle, is the main reason. As for posting if your on gear while claiming a lift, yea, I think you should because at least it will give a reason for a great gain. Example - I've been lifting hard for 4+ years now and my bench is at 285x4. There is a guy in my gym who is on gear and has been lifting for about a year and a half now. His bench is 375x2. P*sses me off ! Why?? I have 4 years into it and no where near that weight, but then the reality sets in as to why he is doing that kind of weight. Personally I wouldn't care what kind of weight I can do as long as I can get a 50" chest, 19" arms, etc. I'm trying to get as BIG as possible not really going for the bragging right of having a big bench.

    Did that make sense or did I just ramble?
    If at first you don't succeed, take 5 lbs. off and try again.
