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?

    Under Armour Mock Turtleneck Color? Your Opinion Needed!

    Sup guys...so i've been thinking about getting one for a long long time. Today I decided that I may as well buy it because I'm gonna be using it a lot. My question is..which color should I get. I did the easy part and narrowed it down to two for you guys haha. Basically..It's between either White or Black. In a way, I want white because I could wear it under any type of clothes and still have it match with whatever color I chose to put on top. It also shows more of the muscles HAHA...(but taht's not a big issue). I also do a lot of night running so I figure this is a good way to illuminate myself as a safety hazard...which black doesn't do well with. BUT, I do consider black also because I figure that my sweat could potentionally (SP?) stain the white turtleneck if I do decide to get it. That has been the reason why I have not bought a single white shirt within the last couple of years. Black is generally a less worry-some color for any type of clothing in my opinion.

    Here are the pictures..I'll let you guys decide. Thanks..this will help me a lot. Oh yea..if people have Under Armour shirts already, if it's white or black..tell me your experiences with it. Do you ever regret buying that color? What benifits did you notice upon buying that color also. Why you pick it?

    Once again, thanks a lot..i really appreciate you guys helping me. Hopefully these $50 dollars I spend on this will be well worthed it... *cross fingers*

    my umm... friend says that the white underarmour becomes almost transparent when its stretched. So... if you happen to have areolas or chest hair, be prepared for it to be on display.

    White's the way to go.
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    i used to stare at this one guy at the gym. he had a great bod, but more importantly whenever he ran, he sweat through his grey tanktop, everywhere except his nips.

    after starign we would often laugh.

    They had good poker faces- they were trying not to laugh. <3

    I suggest black or, failing that, lavendar. You simply cannot beat a tight, lavendar shirt showing off the firm, curvaceous masculinity of your pectoral muscles and sensually molding to your tight and unresponsivle abdomen and..

    I'm getting all hot and bothered.

    Hmmm...

    I don't think that any color could offset the misfortune. Perhaps neon lime.

    Or a whole lot of nolva.

    is this heat gear or cold gear, I have the white cold gear and it works and looks great. Don't get black. But wear a shirt over the underarmour (cut off works well), for heat, and function.. also it just looks silly if you dont. And if you have a big head, make sure that you don't get the turtleneck, just get the longsleeve shirt (im assuming cold gear)- It's the same as the turtleneck, except no neck, and its not that much colder. And it doesnt make you look goofy..

    I have a small head ahha. But, I do know what you guys are saying about the white ones being transparent. That only goes for the turf gear..or any one of those products that are very slim. I laughed at myself the first time I wore it HAHA.

    JTyrell710, whenever you sweat..does it stain the fabric of the shirt?

    Also, for the people with these kind of shirts, after you washed them, did they lose a bit of that tight feeling? Or did the shirt stay tight like always?

    Thanks..
