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?

    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

    No, not that. The Thai Government is VERY strict when it comes to that.

    Phuket is renowned to be THE capital of prostitution in Thailand. If I remember correctly, there are 5000+ prostitutes around Phuket. Thats a lot considering that phuket really is a small holiday town. So I guess he probably was on a mongoring trip.

    Nope, sorry... it's Poo kett. Or more properly P-hoo-kett. The /p/ is apirated. Unless that's what you meant. At any rate it is not Foo-kett.

    From Wikipedia:
    Phuket (Thai ภูเก็ต ) is one of the southern provinces (changwat) of Thailand. Neighboring provinces are (from north clockwise) Phang Nga and Krabi, but as Phuket is an island there are no land boundaries. The island is served by Phuket International Airport, located in the north of the island. In the name "Phuket", the p and the h are pronounced separately, as in "top hat".

    Now I don't really have a good reason to believe this, but something tells me his fitness made simple videos were the least bad 'get in shape thing' on television. Besides his freaky looks. He really isn't big at all either.

    Yeah, Basedow definitely has pec implants. In fact, his entire body looks fake -- but it might just be lighting and so on.

    I'm sort of a major politics and current events geek, so I know it's easy to assume that Basedow was in Thailand to buy a weekend with some ten year olds. On the other hand, Thailand is a major tourist attraction for other purposes, too, so I find it sort of crass to suggest he was over there doing such a horrible thing without knowing the truth of the matter. What amounts to the rape of children is about the worst crime I can think of, and I'd hate to see people say that someone was doing that when said person may have been catching up on a tan or at a volleyball tourneyment or fishing.
    Don't hate the player. Hate the game.

    That's funny. If he really was soliciting young girls then it seems kind of reminiscent of Patrick Swayze's character in the movie Donnie Darko.
