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?

    People with small/skinny calves

    Does the appearance of your calves keep you from wearing short? Especially if they're not proportionate with your upper body.

    I agree with Bam Bam, are you going to wear sleeves/sweaters if you have small forearms?

    I have girl legs, and I don't give a ****

    I told him I work them 2 a week and I do the best I can. Man, that comment ruined my whole night! I mean I was going to be dancing so I didn't wanna wear no pants. Damn these genetics

    Yes. This post has inspired me to add a calf routine hehe. I do wear shorts when hanging out at friends houses, just not when going out though. My legs are really white also!

    I hate wearing shorts because unless I use really short ones that show my quads I look like one of those types that don't train legs. It sucks, but I've pretty much conformed to it.

    Don't sweat it. Sounds to me like your friend was throwing a cock block at you to throw off your game with the ladies.
    My friend (who has a huge neck and traps) used to do the same thing to me by pointing out my merely "average" size neck and traps.... made me wanna wear a turtle neck in July.

    I use to let it stop me, but now I wear short all the time. I have thick quads and and it makes my calves look even smaller. If anyone tells me anything I simply tell them that they've grown 1.5" in the last six months.

    to be symetrical/proportional ur calves should measure the same as ur biceps
    to sculpt you must first have concrete
    You are only as stong as your weakest joint

    I don't worry about it, or the size of anything else. If they grow, they grow. If they don't, they don't. Just train your hardest and eat. Don't worry about anyone's else's opinion of your body. Either they like it...or they don't. Case closed.

    I used to never wear shorts because of the hideousness of my calves. But i got over it. It's too ****ing hot in the summer not to. I also never used to take off my shirt, but i got over that nonsense also. when weather is against you, who cares what dopes are making fun of ya.

    I never wore shorts in public until my calves got over 16 inches.

    In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.
