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?

    The term 'swole'

    Okay, is it just me or does the term 'swole' seem to be everywhere now?? Members names are starting to have (SWOLE and sombody else with 'swole' in their name) the word and people use it quite a bit.

    What's it from and why has it become so trendy lately??

    Or should I just crawl back under the rock I've been living in and transport back to the '90s.

    No offence to anyone, but it just sounds like high school slang to me. I don't know why people don't talk properly anymore and use complete sentences! That and all of the crazy typing using letters as words and stuff.

    Stuff like:
    Wat r u gona do 2day?
    Th4ts s0m3 cr4zy n3ws!

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    I think its just short for "swollen" and since its usually only used by guys who juice, I believe it means that since they are on AAS, they look swollen, or swole, since they puffed up so fast. kinder like how when you stub you knee, it swels up really fast.. well, take some AAS and your whole body will swell up fast, making you look swole

    erm.. something..
    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.

    yeah or throw something at them

    You hit the nail right smack on the head with that because I have been thinking it for a LONG time, especially the suxor and /pwn3d stuff.

    Thanks GIS. I'm not hacking on anyone who does it. I just think that people should type with proper english or at least make it legible. And Kimpy, at least you type the words. You may not use all the grammar, but you do use the proper words 99% of time - no worries.

    I'm just saying that using all this slang got tired real fast - for me at least. JMHO.

    It is some high school slang crap. Remember when everyone used 'shady' a few years ago? Saying 'swole' is just plain shady.

    Eat ****, Powerman.

    Besides, nobody really types 1337 anymore, all of these script-kiddie bitches just fire up the 1337-5p33k translator and let it do all the work.

    I dont care what anybody says, speaking in that shortened, abbreviated crap takes way longer than typing in proper english(or WHATEVER) so long as you actually learned how to type like a regular human to begin with.
