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?

    I'm a very hairy beast, not freakish like some people I know, but very hairy. I've tried shaving, which just does look very natural on me, but does show A LOT more muscle definition, but like I said it doesn't look real natural and I get ingrown hairs etc's. So what I've found works best is using an old beard trimmer of mine, setting it to 1/8 an inch and just doing almost everything. Looks very natural, shows a lot more muscle definition, avoids the ingrown hairs and my wife thinks it looks great too. Mind you I'm the kind of guy that when I used to work full time had to shave twice a day if I had an evening meeting so I sometimes have to trim once a week.

    That's a load of crap, and when it's shaved it looks significantly better.

    If you never shave, the hair you see is the "fine" end of a hair taper. When you shave, you cut it down to the thick end, so when it grows out it appears thicker. Its the same hair though, not new growth.

    Vido is correct. It does not grow back thicker. When you shave you remove the natural taper of the hair and are, in essence, cutting it at its base. As a result it appears thicker. Think of it as cutting off a tree at it's base. The base is thicker, the top limbs are narrow and skinny.


    *edit...despite being hair master I must give credit where credit is due. I think Alex (Belial) came up with the analogy in a previous post.

    It doesn't actually GET thicker when it comes back. It's just real fine at the tip before you shave it, but the hair follicle has matured since it first started growing hair, and thats why when you shave it, it grows back as the dark/thicker matured hair.

    In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.
