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?

    I agree, except that IMO, Men's Health sucks as bad as the rest of them.

    I like Muscular Development the most... seems like a no-BS mag.

    Over half the pages are full page ads. I think Muscular Development even listed a Muscletech ad with Brock Lesner in the table of contents.
    Training is tough, deal with it!

    True, but that's what all of the muscle mags are like. The content itself of Muscular Development is pretty good, IMO.

    I read the Health mags for the interesting little blurbs about studies and such. I think these mags are more interesting, and have things that "normal" people can relate to. Real world acitivites, like swimming, etc. I look through the muscle mags too, but I can thumb through a 400 page Flex in no time, since it's really only 15 pages without the ads. I don't buy any magazines though, since anything that I want to reference is right here.

    Men's Health is actually about my favorite magazine of the genre.
    "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.

    Yeah, Men's Health isnt that bad at all. Its not hardcore, but it at least attempts to be somewhat honest.

    Though they do have a new 'get shredded abs' routine every month. I think the FCC requires that.

    I still think they can be good for motivation, but I havn't picked up a magazine of that type in ages.

    Mens health is great (we talking about the same one here in the uk?) - it's basically cosmo for guys. Er, but in a manly way *grrr*
    *Flexes*
    half the time I have no idea what you're talking about. the other half, I'm not listening.
