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?

    Chicken legs???

    Just how many of you have chicken legs? I could never understand why men work so hard on everything but their legs. I mean eventually you have to wear shorts. Just curious!!

    <==== Wearing 'em loud and proud.

    I work my legs just as often as every other body part. But I'm small all over so I guess it's okay.

    I'm kinda glad there are many guys (read: homos) that don't train their legs. Otherwise they would be taking up valuable time in the curl stations (read: power rack).

    What the big guy said.

    Although I do train my legs, I still have what I consider to be chicken legs. They have always been stronger than most people I know when it comes to lifting, jumping and running. But still they are rather skinny. Especially my calves.

    I still think I have chicken legs if that counts for anything. I trained legs before upper body because it was the only thing I wasn't embarassed to be seen doing.

    I work my legs regulary and I dont have chicken legs (they are not huge either). Beofre knowing the benefits of squat (from this site and others and google), my leg routine was a set or two of leg extensions per week. Because then, an additional inch on my chest was more important than an inch on my legs. And many average lifters hardly care about legs anyways. People notice your upper body more than your lower body. Its only 'perfect' people like us who notice legs before chest because thick legs are the signs of your knowledge and manliness (and obsession).

    an avergae lifter doesnt care. and it is a good thing like ElPietro said.

    Unfortunately, I belong to the chicken leg dept. My Quads is pretty thick, but my calves does seem to want to catch up, even though I do train my legs.
