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?

    Not so that they're totally, ridiculously out of order, like Ernie Taylor's triceps, but definately so that they draw your attention first.

    The first time i realised i wanted overly large delts was when i saw a small photo in a muscle mag of a BBer called Craig Richardson. I just found some pics of his.











    Granted, a lot of it is down to his genetics and drug use, but it impresses me anyway and it's what i'm striving for.

    he has some pretty mean thighs too.

    I'd rather be proportionate. My thighs have the potential to get disproportionately large, so I train them less to keep them in check, especially because my calves are so growth-resistant

    Well it looks the freaks have a slight margin.
    One problem I have with cutting back to keep proportion is I am not training to my potential. I can't see being less then I can be. Thats just me. For the most part I think it just equates to a nice bodypart. Unless you look like that guy whose pic is always showing up.

    Definitely calves. No question about it.

    Well, a bigger tool would be nice. Aside from that, i would like some huge legs. 31"+ quads and 23"+ Calves. That would do me just fine. I would also like a really thick pair of Lats and Traps.

    BM,

    I actually had a chick spend about 5 minutes talking about my calves. So hey some crazy minded women out there DO like calves. But to be fair it was the girl at the gym doing my measurements/bf %.

    On the flip side I also had a dude go on and on about my calves. I've always had naturally massive and cut calves even at my high BF.

    I'm in your boat too though in that I want bigger bi's, actually more cut bi's. I'm around 18" on the bi's but they're just huge masses of muscle. (its a good thing you have to measure tri's to measure bi's) I want insane cut ....."the beach is uhh that away" bi's ....damn this diet and my slow ass metabolism.
