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?

    I was thinking that you might be just cruising through things right now. I still love your cruising sessions, the numbers are still eviable!


    I just love the guys that have been putting 15-20 years, or more, into lifting you seem like experts, even though I know you wouldn't admit it.

    Tidy session coke. Gettin' it done!
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    Monster squats coke. Numbers are climbing back up each week hopefully work puts you on a set rotation soon.
    Success is achieved by doing a little more than you thought you could, and a lot more than anyone else.

    Still throwing around respectable weights even though they're down from where you were at. I am sure you'll be setting new crazy PRs as soon as **** settles.
