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?

    It's not the critic who counts. It's not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of the deed could have done it better. The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who strives vailantly, who errs and come up short again and again, who at best knows the high achievement of triumph, who at worst, fails while daring greatly for he knows his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory no defeat.

    "Do you workout?"
    "Why do you eat every 3 hours?"
    Me looking at a muscle mag at work... "Do you actually want to look like that? that's gross.. "

    These are all the things that make me want to push harder every day...

    I'm motivated by suroundings... not by quotes writen by other poeple...

    But I do like Ronnie's... "Everyone wants to be a bodybuilder, but no one wants to lift no heavy ass weights"...

    If you get motivated by quotes or saying that's cool... the above works for me...

    Though I walk thru the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil,
    for I am the baddest son of a **** in the valley.

    (I love history especially military history. I met a guy once that I interviewed for a paper that was in Vietnam and he had a 3' x 4' "plaque" that had the entire saying on it. On the back side, it had engravings of everyone who spent time at the camp he was at)

    "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

    Well, my choice for "motivational quotes" usually come from peoples journals on this site.

    They usually go a little something like this:

    DB shoulder press: 110x7


    ATF Squats: 405x7


    BB Rows: 315x10

    That's just great, make everyone feel like crap while your at it...........jerks...

    During my crazy college (thats the thing between school and university for you yanks) days we for some reason adopted the phrase:

    "Come on you p*ssy"

    Seemed to the trick though.
    half the time I have no idea what you're talking about. the other half, I'm not listening.
