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?

    The worst bodybuilding article ever

    http://www.askmen.com/sports/bodybui...tness_tip.html

    That's the main article. If you click on the build mass hyperlink in the article, it takes you here

    http://www.askmen.com/sports/bodybui...building7.html

    Mass is something every bodybuilder seeks: attaining it is pretty simple and straightforward. Unless you use steroids (and get all the side effects that come with it), you will need discipline and devotion to your training.

    I found that to be hilarious.

    Cormier suggests using a range of 16 to 20 sets per body part. I suggest that if you are not a competing bodybuilder, use a range of 12 to 16 sets, per muscle group. Try not to train more then 2 body parts in a single day or you will over work your body, and it might stop you from growing.

    LOL, more than 2 body parts is overtraining But 16 sets for each body part isn't.

    http://www.askmen.com/sports/bodybui...tness_tip.html

    Gotta love their chest tip. 14 sets at 15 reps each for chest, who doesn't incorporate that ole' trick in their chest routine?

    Now on to Mr Natural, Chris Cormier's 10 rules!
    "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.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    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

    I was actually doing okay (read: just laughing) until I saw this part:


    http://www.askmen.com/sports/bodybui...tness_tip.html


    This "Pete Sisco" is the antichrist. I will hunt him down and burn him nearly to death, before dismembering him with a hatchet and sledgehammer.


    PARTIAL RANGE DEADLIFTS ON THE SMITH ARE BETTER THAN FULL DEADLIFTS????

    Dude, how would you ever get near him with a guy like this protecting him?

    I bet he can clean what you deadlift. Look at his form on leg extensions Edit: And that hair!

    LMAO! Nice one, Tim

    I'm relieved to see that you guys get your share of crappy "advice" too...I'd hate to think that it was only the women's mags/sites that were full of $hit

    I could give all to Time except - except
    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    Thanks for posting that article. Man I am realy going to have to change up what I do in the gym. Before reading this my rep ranges were way to low. Now I realize I must have them up arround 16. And that supplements will help me to do this. You know supplements like the ones pro bbrs use like creatine.

    I'm in awe of his form! I bet if he sticks with it the way he's going he'll be ready for Bowflex in 3-5.
