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?

    Men Pleasing Women

    Husband Super Store

    Recently a "Husband Super Store" opened where women could go to
    choose a husband from among many men. It was laid out in five floors,
    with the men increasing in positive attributes as you ascended.
    The only rule was, once you opened the door to any floor, you HAD
    to choose a man from that floor; if you went up a floor, you couldn't go
    back down except to leave the place, never to return.

    A couple of girlfriends went to the shopping centre to find some
    husbands...

    First Floor

    The door had a sign saying, "These men have jobs and love kids." The
    women read the sign and said, "Well, that's better than not having a job or
    not loving kids, but I wonder what's further up?" So up they went.

    Second Floor

    The sign read, "These men have high paying jobs, love kids, and are
    extremely good looking." "Hmmm," said the ladies, "But, I wonder
    what's further up?"

    Third Floor

    This sign read, "These men have high paying jobs, are extremely good
    looking, love kids and help with the housework." "Wow," said the
    women, "Very tempting." But there was another floor, so further up they
    went.

    Fourth Floor

    This door had a sign saying "These men have high paying jobs, love kids,
    are extremely good looking, help with the housework and have a strong
    romantic streak." "Oh, mercy me," they cried, "Just think what must be
    awaiting us further on! So up to the fifth floor they went.

    Fifth Floor

    The sign on that door said, "This floor is empty and exists only to prove
    that women are f***ing impossible to please. The exit is to your
    left, we hope you have a good day."

    "Soli Deo Gloria"
    "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!"
    Romans 7:14-25

    awesome.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    good one.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    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
