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?

    Is that what you think you weigh or what others have told you? I weigh close to 220lbs but still feel like I'm 130lbs. Its body-dismorphia or whatever. I'll never be big enough.

    Thats one bigass rediculous sentence. Use periods/commas.. it makes it easier for my brain to interpret what you're saying!!

    Heh I weigh 220 lbs and hardly anyone believes I'm over 200 lbs.

    You might have be wide-bodied and just haven't filled into your frame or something yet. Don't worry about it, though ..

    It's from you having a dense bone stucture, not nessacarily a big one. I have a big AND dense bone structure, it's almost ridiculous. At 4%BF I was 205 lbs. my sophomore year, yet I was no where near that ridiculous looking at all, just big, dense bones.

    Ugh, apocalypse of literature






    Maybe you just need to loose some bodyfat, i am 175lbs and dont look it because I'm not particularly ripped.. I looked a lot bigger at 160 due to better definition

    Probably dense muscle, that's what i have. i weigh 250, i'm 5'11 @ 16yrs. i've never been guessed more than 215. my friends, adults who lift and i all agree that it's mostly due to dense muscle. i think i'm about 20% bf. almost all of it is on the belly. belly isn't very big though....
