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?

    What's a Curl Jockey?

    also I read about some one who was the "homeless bodybuilder" what do they mean?

    I assume curl jocky means some one who only does a lot of curls and no legs.

    Curl jockey, imo, is someone who curls more often than they squat/dead.

    As for the "homeless bodybuilder", probably just a homeless person who works out. There are a few at my gym. If they've had their membership for a long time, its a relativly cheap way to have access to shelter/shower.

    I'd say a curl jockey is somebody that goes to the gym twice a week and what do you know, it's their arm day!

    These kind only are in it to impress others and their gym time will expire as soon as their guns are big enough to look good in a shirt 2 times too small for the rest of their body.
    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 homeless bodybuilder in my case was literally a guy who was homeless and worked out. The guy was huge and used newspaper to support his back during deadlift and barbell calf raises. Funny thin though is that he also sneaked in chalk. He wears an old denim jacket and moccasins. I cannot confirm he is homeless but since he wears real bad clothes and was begging for money at the AM/PM I gathered he was.

    I am not sure how I would be able to answer that. I mean unless I strike up a conversation with him in the gym. I don't think he is the social type too. I am guessing maybe welfare?

    I love the curl jockeys, the more the better. Last thing I want to do is wait to deadlift or squat. BTW most of the CJs in my gym do arms at least 3X per week.
    Just one guy's opinion.

    a curl jockey is someone who has bigger arms than most people here, and since he lifts in an unconventional manner, he is then made fun of and pointed out as an idiot(even though his arm training routine is far superior than standard knowledge passed off around here)

    Indeed, MrWebb, his arms are bigger than my legs! However, my arms are bigger than his legs as well.

    well, i didnt mean to sound like such a butthole in my post.

    i agree that most "curl jockeys" should spend as much attention on their legs, then they would probably look incredible. but the fact is, even with noodle legs, "most curl jockeys" have awesome arms, even by using incredibly high volume which is so frowned upon by 99% of the members here.

    i dont like curl jockeys. they spend all their time in the gym on their arms. if they actually did maybe back and shoulders, or even better - did some freakin squats, i'd have more respect. but they're typically the uneducated type who think biceps are everything. i prefer huge shoulders and back over biceps any day.

    doesnt muscle produce human growth hormone. This means that if you dont put on muscle on your legs, back and chest you will not get big arms or nothing, you will flat line.
