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?

    Treadmill

    my mom bought a TREADMILL

    "mom, you can walk outside"
    "do you think i have time for that? i get home from work, cook for you, do the laundry, clean up, and do all of this other stuff for no apparent reason. Plus, it is COLD outside. when do you think i have time to walk?"

    she is walking while watching tv.
    i could cook. and I do the laundry in the house. its 3/4 me and 1/4 her.
    i am gonna use it too!

    I love our treadmill, it is one of the best things to ever enter my life, and beginning tomorrow it will once again become my very best friend.

    In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.

    I have a treadmill in my laundry room and it's great...especially when it's either 95 degrees/90% humidity or snowy/cold/windy outside. It also comes in handy when I have 30 spare minutes and want to run intervals without packing up and driving to the gym...nice piece of equipment to have handy access to!

    I could give all to Time except - except
    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    aye, it seems weird, but the treadmill in my condo comes in handy

    especially on days like the last few we've had, where a foot or more of snow gets dumped on us overnight

    I think they are great, especially since I watch my daughter during the day and can't make it to the gym before work so I have the playpen in view and walk for 45 minutes. I got the norditrack 1000xi which is sturdy for a big guy like me!

    I would like to get a treadmill when I get the house built. Only it'll cost quite a bit since I need the super fatass version that can hold like half a ton of weight trudging on top of it. I see the ones for like $1000-1500 and can picture it falling apart the moment I start jogging.

    LMAO!!! A friend of mine back in the days did this. He jumped on there at a house party and started walking... then he just kept raising the speed and it caught up with him and he fell to his knees and slid off the back. It was one of the greatest things I have ever seen

    my mom bought a treadmill too, tis been in our basement at home for two years, unused... oh well... if I happen to be cutting when i go home, I'll use it.. I still prefer to just go to the gym though.. theres something about it i guess..
    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)

    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.
    Shane says:
    yeah or throw something at them

    like a couple of 45's

    That's how my strength coach has us do intervals...crank it up to 10% incline and 8-10 mph, jump on for your 30 sec. sprint, then jump off and walk around slowly to regain your breath for the 1:30 recovery, then jump back on again.

    It makes people look at you really funny when you do it in a general gym

    I can see how it could be useful. Cold out right now. But I got a dog, I would feel guilty using it.
