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?

    Huge upper body yet with small arms?

    I have seen ppl with impressive looking Chest and back but yet they have really small arms that hardly matches with the rest of their upper body. Any idea why do they have such a problem? Is it due to over/under training or simply genes?

    Usually it's a result of a imbalance because this individual has failed to train each bodypart in a even fashion.

    "Soli Deo Gloria"
    "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!"
    Romans 7:14-25

    some people are naturally big. so there chest and back are big before training so those area grow quicker.

    That's weird, my lats and chest refuse to grow but my arms grow even w/ half assed training... same with my legs... and to make matters even more strange my triceps are proportionate to my biceps and they receive little to no direct work... how odd. It's kind of cool in a way except that I have large legs, large arms, large shoulders, but a torso that resembles an "I" more than a "V"

    MY ARMS DONT GROW, but my chest and back have zero problems growing.. Pisses me off, but i guess they'll get there, they MUST have potential to get bigger than they are now, and where there is a will there is way

    I don't really train my arms that hard at all and they get to 19"+. Sometimes I miss my bicep workout out. Genetics. My shoulders I have to really really blast as I have to with my legs.

    Overtraining?

    Most people seem to work out biceps the most when they start out. Even before they actually figure out what their goals are. They just KNOW they want big arms.

    I've seen a ton of people in the gym spending 2 or 3 times as much time and effort on their arms as they do their legs, for example...

    Anyone...?
