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?

Thread: Measurements

    I'm roughly 6' 1" and I weight right at 185lbs.
    Here are my measurements:
    16" Neck (right above traps)
    40" Chest
    14.5" Biceps
    12.5" Forarms
    32" at the belly button
    39" around waist at the biggest point of my glutes
    21" Quads
    17" Calves

    I feel like I am out of proportion but I don't know what the relationship between the numbers is supposed to be so I can't put my finger on it (other than my big a$$. I hate my genetics in that aspect.). What do you guys think? Hopefully, I'll be able to get some pics posted so you guys can get a better idea.

    I know that your neck, arms, and calves should be roughly (very roughly) equal. Other than that, I don't have a clue. I'm pretty proportional, so I guess for an idea you can compare your numbers with mine.
    If you're not lifting hard, you're taking up space.
    Get the f$*# out.

    You have similar stats to me except you have an extra inch on your chest/biceps and forearms. So at least you are more in proportion then i am.
