The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    i think bodybuilders are picked on by the media, becuase they are so apparent, by that i mean you can see their size.

    I mean i know guys who live their lives in soccer, they never stop talking about it day in/day out. To me this is an obsession, but the media dont see it that way, becuase they have nothing bulging or at least they usually dont.

    "Do you spend more than 2 hours in the gym each day?"
    If you're a moron you do!

    Do they just love to propogate the myth that more work=more progress in these articles?

    They could easily fight this problem by simply saying there is such a thing as overtraining.

    "Do you experience mood swings and anxiety attacks because of your unhealthy diet?"
    Since when is an unhealthy diet the optimum diet for bodybuilding purposes?

    lol, that article is funny, yet stupid.

    Don't cancel plans to go out because you're worried you'll cheat on your diet. Instead, have a salad with dressing on the side
    I think this could solve all the world's problems. Don't go to war with Iraq. Instead, have a salad with dressing on the side.

    Obsessed is a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated.

    Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're right.

    Don't compare your physique with that of buff guys at the gym. They're probably on steroids.

    ... one of the worst statements ive seen in quite a bit.

    LOL that article is so stupid.

    I bodybuild because I love lifting weights, because its challenging, because I like muscle, and mainly because I have control over it, and any cockup cant be blamed on anyone else.

    What the hell is that guy going on about? Unhealthy diet my ass.
    Compare:
    Normal persons diet:
    McDonalds
    Junk food
    More junk food
    Bobybuilders diet:
    Tuna
    Chicken
    Steak
    Rice
    Pasta
    Wheat bread
    etc.


    Hmm which is healthier?

    For the most party, that article is right on.
    "As far as drugs were concerned, all my bodybuilding heroes were on everything but roller skates."


    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.
