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?

    You have amazing squat-ability man. I mean that.

    Speaking of, I was watching the 2003 WSM on ESPN last night and saw Zydrunas Savikas squat like a machine. It was downright euphoric.

    Wow, when did you get this strong? 275x3 is really great! I clicked on the first page of your journal, only 7 months ago since you started and there you were benching 175x5, now at 275x3. Great progress.

    nice benching
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    Common theories to CoCoa's stats:

    -He's a midget and weight an astounding 93 pounds.
    -He's an alien. Time and space are irrelevant to him.
    -He's a drunk who just posts random workouts and everyone believes him.
    -He's really Mariusz and he's just toying with all of us.
    -He's a beast and likes to be mysterious.

    Ok, so now that I've asked him, he may answer, dunno what the drama is about. That is generally the point of questions.
