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?

    so they have gucci rush for men huh? I guess that would make sense, but I don't pay any attention. I got the rush for women, it's all right. I like it, but I can't wear it because it gives me a headache. It's currently collecting dust on my dresser along with the many others that give me a headache. Ah well, maybe I'll try wearing it again someday. Perhaps tomorrow, yuppers that's wjat I'm gonna do.

    gee beastin your post was so inspiring..

    and anywayz back to the original topic, $25 is a heck of a steal..... buy it...

    Why the **** are you asking other guys what aftershave they like?

    Maybe because there are like only 10 gals around here? LOL.

    Seriously, I here ya, but you have to also remember guys that wear a fragrance get complimented from the ladies....so they also know what is good and what isn't.

    Beastinv6, the Armani is nice but there are tons of other scents. Have you even smelled these scents, tested them against your own natural smell? You need to do these things because each cologne doesn't have the same effect on every man. Just go to the counter smell some scents, choose a couple that you like spray on opposite arms walk around for a while and then smell again our ask some random women what they like on you and BAM....you gotta winner.

    GG has the answers my boy.

    beastin v6,

    Just wait for a couple of weeks........then you can get hold of Armani White ....I'm not sure if it has been released in the U.S........I just got hold of it last week ....my Dad got it for me from the UAE............I just love the smell.......the best thing is that you dont have many people using it....I hate it when a perfume becomes common.......anyways you may want to check the following as well :

    1. Extreme by Bvlgari
    2. Joop
    3. Paco Rabanne
    4. Zero Plus - Diesel
    5. Versace Blue Jeans

    All of them smell really good......100% "which cologne are you wearing " stuff.........and the best thing is that they are not as common as CK, Acqua di Gio, Gucci, Hugo and all

    Just my opinion

    Raj

    Buy givenchy - pie itsa good one...

    gotta be original with your cologne, its what makes you stand out in the crowd.. if a girl likes the way you smell, and your scent is original, you'll have an instant "in"
    Let me get this straight...
    You get play from the girl of your dreams
    PR Shoulder Press using the 3 digit dumbells
    Hit up some fun with the guys
    Then get more play
    (all in one afternoon/evening I might add.. S)
    You are a success my friend . Share your secrets. (Crippy)
