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?

    Very nice.... Doin great!!!! My 16 yr old sister just fell off her chair.
    If figureskating was easy they'd call it hockey. me
    If it's important they'll call back. me

    The question isn't who is going to let me;
    its who is going to stop me.
    Ayn Rand

    And so it begins,
    My eyes wide, yet I see only darkness.
    The world is mine, yet it crumbles with my touch.
    I can touch the stars with my thoughts,
    But the simplest of pleasures denied.
    All things must end they say;
    to end before beginning?
    Tis the sadest loss of all.

    look very good man, loads of potential too.
    "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."

    i agree...the only place i see needing some work so far is the hams.


    the rest of you looks pretty damn good, but the hams need to catch up a bit. you could pop those erectors out a bit too. do you deadlift?

    do i deadlift now that is a funny question j/k. well lately i havent deadlifted due to i messed up my back bowling, long story, and very stupid one too. but yeah i can max out at deadlift at 420 and usually do sets with 225 and hit the reps between 8-10. and i do stifflegged deadlifts always when going for reps. for some reason when i do stiff legged ones it puts more emphasis on my spinal erectors rather than my ham strings.thnx for the compliments guys, very appreciated.

    You do not look 150lbs,to my eyes you look 160-165lbs.When you get to 190lbs you'll be a walking house

    Not saying he's lying,just saying he looks heavier then 150.

    Man I wish I took bodybuilding seriously when I was in High School Oh how huge my muscles would be

    Well, he's 5'5, so automatically 150 pounds is a lot of weight to be carried on a frame that size. Especially as lean as he is.

    As for the weight gain, that too shouldn't be a problem, just tell them your leaning out. Then flex your bi and tell them to ****ing get lost.

    Great job man, having obliques show is totally sweet. Quads look rock solid as well.

    At your age you may still be on schedule for a big growth spurt if you are 5'5". Is that height common in your family? I think you could attain your 40lbs in two years though. Just bulk and see how things go.

    16 yrs old and she's the "pretty" one of the family. So line up guys she is taking applications cause she's single and willing to travel. So fill in those applications now!!!
    Sorry I think I just deteriorated chisle's thread.
    Back to the original thread.....I agree the hams could use a little bit of work and omg I agree with mr pietro that you might get a growth spurt
    If figureskating was easy they'd call it hockey. me
    If it's important they'll call back. me
