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?

    Coke, ignore the juiceheads. Personally, it more cooler having the strength not matching the size. I wish I could do that, but I want to gain a bit of size on me before I can be stronger than I look.

    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.

    Some people are just gifted like that. I am kind of strong, but I have seen kids that look bigger than me that are way weaker than me... and I DO have special supplements, lol. Everyone is different.

    Blah, cast off the naysayers, CC. Kickbacks do the job, and they target the tri's very well in my opinion.

    When the kickbacks were suggested by my partner I immediately laughed but went along anyways, I don't care for them to be honest with y'all and was sure to get a reaction up in here -
