The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Finally Measured Myself Need Feedback

    Got my Myotape today and did some measurements. My next purchase will be a fat caliper. Now I am still too self-conscious and fat to post pics, but based on the stats below what do you think? Also, is there anything else I need to measure?

    Stats/Cold
    Height-5’9
    Weight-204
    Chest- 44 (mostly mantits)
    Arm-16 ½
    Waist-35 1/2
    Quads-24
    Calves-17 ½

    My new goal is to be down to 185 By New Years. I figure I can loose about 1 pound per week and reach my goal. Although I just hate it, I will also start doing cardio beginning next month. I will shoot for 45 minutes per day.

    Your numbers are fairly close to mine. Not too bad at all.

    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.

    I am 27 and for an estimate, I have no idea. Whatever the worst is probably. Maybe 25%-30%? When I get my caliper, I will tell you. I am not down to have it measured at my gym since I am still very self-conscious. What did feel good is the size of my arms. I thought they were big and later was convinced that they may not as big as I thought. When I finally measured and saw that I have 16 1/2, I was very happy. I know a good amount is fat, but still inspiring nonetheless.

    Not bad man, that's good base to start off with. Try to keep as much muscle as you can when you cut, do it slowly, take your time.
    "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?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "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."
