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?

    steve reeves

    Do you think Steve Reeves has excellent genetics? Or no? Curious if his physique would be obtainable without using steroids for someone like myself.

    don't get into the thinking that you can only attain physique 'X' with gear use.

    you'll be amazed at how big you can naturally grow with good training and nutrition.

    Ya, I don't even think they used steroids when he was lifting did they?

    His physique is just a goal of mine; I'd love to get to that point someday.

    Steve Reeves is the best ever IMO. They didn't even have steroids back then. Yes he did have good genetics. He worked out extremely hard and even when he was deployed in Asia in the military he lifted weights. He was the only one who did and he kept a bench with him and all the guys thought it was an ironing board. He was awesome and that's the body I'm working for. Laterz.
    "In the grand scheme of things, both things are quite superficial(obsessed with being muscular&ripped and incredibly strong). And yet lifting can teach you so much. My time at the gym--at least when I'm lifting--is invariably the high-point of my day. There aren't any questions; I almost don't even think. I go into an almost meditative trance-like state. Day-to-day worries become insignificant. I'm focused solely on the weight, and my reason for existence is clear. To move the bar and to improve on what I accomplished last time. Seldom are things so simple." - Blood&Iron

People don't understand why we commit hours a day to a goal where progress is so small it seems immeasurable, why we do cardio instead of watch TV, why eat 6 meals a day, why we insist on ordering diet soda or how we can drink skim milk. Most people will simply never grasp why we refuse to settle for a mediocre body." - Severed Ties

    Marcel, I think you'll find they did have Steriods back then. Weather or not Steve used them is a matter of opinion.

    I don't think they are. You just never see them because the bigger and badder guys like ronnie coleman and king kamali are the ones being glamourized by the media today. Not the ones who looked like Steve Reeves. Make sense?

    stev fisrt competed in about 1948. the russian weightlifters started to use steorids back then but this was a bit before steve time. If he came about 5 years later then he would have likley to have taken them. He did retire young

    Life4ever - There are a ton of great natural physiques but there are "bigger and badder" dudes that with a lil AS help have even better physiques. Your post kinda seems pesimistic have a lil faith in what you can accomplish naturally!

    Yates - I read an interview with Sergio Oliva and he said "even Steve Reeves used AS." Then there was another guy in Europe who introduced Arnold to steroids who claims he helped Steve with his AS use. Of course Steve denies all these claims in his book and I hope Steve is telling the truth. Steve was really anti-steroids. What do you think Yates, you think he was natural?

    Guys, I believe that he did not use steroids, at least not to any appreciable degree, because of his physique. He was big, but nowhere near the size of the guys today. His type of physique, size and definition wise, is very attainable for a natural bodybuilder. His physique, shape and symetry wise, would not be so easily obtained as he had superior genetics for those qualities.
