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?

    Stallone's comeback?

    I was driving somewhere today with the radio on when I heard the announcement that Sylvester Stallone is going to make a new Rocky VI and a Rambo 4!
    I got home, checked it out online, and it seems legit.

    The Rocky and Rambo series were both really awesome... think he can pull it off again?

    lol... it's like Hulk Hogan making another comeback.

    The only geezer that can pull of badass roles after 50 is Arnold.

    I only hope the new scripts can live up to the legacy of the prior sequels.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    I disagree completely.

    Stallone is still buff.
    Liotta is damned near 50 and I don't see any sign of him getting less badass.
    he's not leading man material, but Danny Trejo is over 50 and still very badass

    For that matter, James Caan did a wicked 'badass role' in "Way of the Gun" at age 61. Understated yes, but the threat implicit in his line "The only thing you can guess about a broken down old man is that he is a survivor. " was wicked.

    That's just off the top of my head.

    No way, Stallone pulled off a pretty good badass in "Get Carter" a couple years back. With so many aging fighters in the ring now, I think rocky could be pulled off. Not sure about Rambo though, the story lines were never as strong in that series...

    Gino you dumbass, Rambo doesn't need a plot. He just needs guns and things to kill.

    No way, he needs chicks too. If there were hot chicks, guns, explosions, and lots of killings I'd say go for it. There's always a shortage of hot broads in rambo flicks though
