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?

    Moron doctors

    I went to my family doctor today to see if I had gyno from my obese childhood. I go into his office and ask him about it, and he pokes my chest and he says "You have too much muscle mass in your chest". I'm like "Ya, I lift weights buddy...", THEN he accuses me of being on steroids. I tell him "I only take protien supplements and ephedrine"... He tells me if I want to loose the tiny pocket of fat under my chest, I should "eat more, stop taking protien and ephedrine, and stop lifting weights"...

    There are SO many things wrong about what he said, it's not even funny... What the frig is up with these doctors nowadays?

    My guess is that some (not all) don't specialize in the powerlifting/bodybuilding area, but try to act like they know everything about it. I remember an article a doctor wrote a few months back that said you shouldn't lift heavy weights because it was bad for your blood pressure. He said you should do low weight/low intensity lifting.

    Why didn't you ask him how having muscle or using protein powder effects your gyno? And ask him out lifting is bad. If someone clearly doesn't know what he/she is talking about, Socratic dialogue always can make the person look like a fool.

    The moment never came up. I was so pissed off that I just said "Thanks doc. Bye", and I walked out. Besides, I'm not gonna try to make a jackass out of myself infront of my family doctor that I've been seeing since like... 1995 i think.

    You should have challenged his ass.

    Ask him how exercise will cause pockets of fat on your chest. After that, ask him how losing muscle will cause the loss of bodyfat.

    You also shouldn't have said anything about ephedrine at that moment. Ephedrine is apparently bad, so if you mention anything along those lines, he'll give you bull**** advice and assume you'll do what he says and he'll go home and masturbate while looking at his framed PHD certificate.

    Dude, how big are you that he accused you of steroid use?

    Thats the ridiculous thing about it... I'm only 172lbs. But I'm a lean 172 lbs. The fat clippers gave me a 10.9% when I was at 181lbs..

    Like I've said to many people I know, I do not find Family doctors to be very valuable. The only purpose they have served me thus far is writing me up some referals so I can go see a specialist.
    "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."

    Ummm, Budiak your forgetting something. This guy is a family doctor, therefore he knows WAY MORE than you or I.

    He's a family pratician. Not trying to demean what he does but kinda a glorified EMT. Talk to a sports medicine doc or somone who knows Kieniesiology (sp) and lifting.

    LMAO I might change the caption over my avatar to that.


    How old is your doc? My guess is he's been out of training for a long long time.
