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?

    In what position do you normally sleep?

    I dont' want to sound stupid by posting so many topics at once, sorry.

    Anyway, I MUST sleep with two pillows. One for my head and one to hold on to while I am sleeping. I usually lay on my side, holding on to a pillow, with my feet together and bent. I cannot fall asleep on my back or stomache.

    My boyfriend always is making fun of how I sleep. I lay on my stomach holding the pillow and have one leg out to the side bent. He says it looks so uncomfortable, but it's the only way I can fall asleep.

    Garza - me too. I need two pillows to fall asleep. One under the head and one to hold on to. My wife always complains, "why do you hold that pillow when you can hold me?" ha ha dunno honey

    On my side, with my knees bent so that the dog can hog the lower half of the bed

    I could give all to Time except - except
    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    And my golden retrievers are both "she's"...

    When I'm travelling or home alone with no boyfriend and no pets, I tend to sprawl diagonally across the bed on my stomach, taking up as much room as possible.

    I usually fall asleep spooning with my wife or lying on my back with my head propped up on a pillow while watching tv with the remote on my belly. If I am really tired I go into what my wife calls "sleep mode", which is on my belly with my arms wrapped around the pillow. If she sees me like this she knows I don't want sex that night.

    Yeah, when sleeping with somebody, spooning is the only way. I usually sleep on my side anyway... and when her hair smells good... yeah.

    My arm is too heavy to spoon.

    Seriously.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Lying on my stomach, head turned to the left (won't turn so good to the right). Left hand under my left thigh, right hand down by my side.

    I lay on the left side of the bed on my side, for some reason i always have to face the door, back to the wall, no idea why. think it makes me feel safer, don't fall asleep any other way

    that's actually good feng shui tre. *lol*

    seriously...feng shuio says to have your bed away from the door, but facing it, so if an intruder comes in, you are not snuck up on. back when i was having my nocturnal panic attacks i couldn't settle unless i was facing the door.

    In the way I'm most comfortable... the Fetal position.

    Mostly on my side, but the odd time on my stomach. I'm all by myself in a Queen size bed, so I can sleep whatever way I want!
