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?

    An Arnold & Lou question

    I'm not familiar w/ these guys back when they were competing, but does anyone know that if either one of them admitted to juicing? Just curious

    Actually the answer is YES.


    Arnie admitted to using anaoblics but claimed that he was using only a fraction of the doages being used today.

    I just can't imagine a guy Ferrigno's size, at 25, and have not been on steroids. If it were true, I'd like to know his secret.
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    The issue is not IF they took them, it's whether they admitted it or not. Not that it really matters.

    People wonder why I call myself Mr. T. One dude asked, 'does the T stand for tough?' I said no. Another dude asked if the T stands for my last name, Tureaud. No it does not. The 'T' in Mr. T stands for tuna. T loves tuna.

    In Arnie's book "Education of a Bodybuilder" he does make an indirect statement about doing drugs. When still living in Germany he was wondering how the guys inthe US look so dense and vascular, he says something like "I wonder if they have better exercises, nutrition or drugs" which indirectly implies that he is using.
