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?

    Best way to drink gatorade?

    I've heard its best to dilute the gatorade with some water before drinking it. I dunno why, but just something I heard. Should I dilute it or drink it straight up?

    Thanks.
    "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?"

    "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 have no clue who told you that.
    Makes no sense to me.
    I add extra water to dim the sweetness down, but that is the only reason.
    Train.

    Well I just read on their site that diluting gatorade with water does not make it better.

    the site said diluting gatorade with water slows down absorption.

    Is it true Gatorade mix has less high fructose corn syrup?

    I don't see how diluting it would make it any better or any worse.

    The trainer for the Football team back in high school use to dilute the gatorade. I believe he told us that diluted worked just as well as non. So he could make more Gatorade out little.

    They sell powder gatorade at Cotsco it's about 12.99 for a huge container.

    The ultimate best way to drink gatorade is with your mouth. I once tried it through my nose, and it just didn't work out.
    Let me get this straight...
    You get play from the girl of your dreams

    Hit up some fun with the guys
    Then get more play
    (all in one afternoon/evening I might add.. S)

    The best way to drink Gatorade is to not drink it at all.

    Stick to water, God gave it to us for a reason.

    You can drink water without the mix, but you cannot drink the mix without the water.
    Age:19
    Height:6'1
    Weight:180lbs
    bf%:Last year it was 17%, probably 17-20% now.

    I'm just a guy who once worked out like the rest of you probably do and am looking for some inspiration and help to get started again and stay on track.

    Goal:250lbs at 12% Bodyfat.

    ^The above is something I hope to accomplish before the age of 28.

    No, I am not gay, I just want to avoid typing this 10 times in the future.
