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?

    Old Navy T-Shirts

    I went to Old Navy and they've got these nice ribbed T-Shirts on sale, 2 for $20.00. They're form fitting so it's a plus if you've got a body worth showing off. Thought I'd share just in case you've got an Old Navy nearby and you're wanting to get some shirts that show everybody how big of a pimp you are.

    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 noticed that too. I was excited when i went there and saw they had "baggy" jeans. I tried some on and they were like skin tight in the thighs, and my legs aren't even big. LOL

    Dude I have 26" quads and I wear a lot of Old Navy Jeans. I get the wide-leg style, not the baggy. They're pretty loose.

    You're kidding right? Old Navy, Gap, and Banana Republic are all owned by Gap Inc. Old Navy has the loosest jeans, followed by Gap, then BR.

    I wouldn't pay 10 dollars for a plain t-shirt in the first place. That's highway robbery.

    I have some old navy sweat pants that I think I paid 6 dollars for.


    And all you folks quit bitchin about jeans, all you have to do is buy them big and invest in a belt. Bitch when you have a 33 inch waist and have to buy 44s and you look like a clown

    Fat people ruin jean shopping for those who are in shape. 3/4's of the jeans on the shelf have larger waists than inseams. Not good when you're 6'3", have a 30" waste and 23" thighs.

    That's cause you are so goddamn skinny. Gain some weight and then talk. I wouldn't say I am out of shape if my waist of pants is 34" and inseam is 32". fool!
