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?

    not trying to make enemies...

    I'm new to this forum.I made a post which some people had a negative feeling about.It was about going to failure.I'll be the first to admit what works for one won't for another.For me however,i feel the need to go to failure,i must know in my mind that i could not have possibly done one more(no second guessing).So i appologize for coming off as if i knew it all.I don't!Nobody does!

    Don't sweat it, dude. Just gotta remember that while going to failure is a popular and effective method of training, there are lots of other methods out there just as effective. Either way, sorry your welcome to the boards was a rough one, heh.

    Heh... don't worry about it. People are people. I had an almost violent introduction to this site as well. If anyone isn't mature enough to let things go, they'll probably be banned before too long anyway. I agree with you, and say do what works for ya!

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    I probably annoy or piss someone off once a week. Don't sweat it. We're mostly all adults here, and we get over it.

    Welcome bro ... dont sweat the stuff . I think Gyno gave me my two warnings pretty quick when I first got here .

    It's all good .

    Anyway the mods all see the genius of my posts and after the mods get on me about some posts , they PM me and apologize and tell me how smart and cool I am . They want to make sure I still like them .

    They tell me they are sorry but they need to look cool on the boards . I dont hold it against them .
    Give me your broken , give me your beaten ... I will build them up , I will lead them ... to the threshhold . Make you stronger , make you believe .

    "alot" is actually 2 separate words, as in you will learn a lot more about proper grammar and sentence structure on this forum.
    yea that's right, be jealous

    The "i" should've been capatilized and I believe the "," should've been a semi-colon. Also, the word "thats" should've had an apostraphe because it is actually two words "that" "is".
