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?

    This guy at the gym

    Last night I was at the gym, doing my last rep of db press. I was pushing it up, I hit a sticky point. It was still moving up slowly, but then this old guy ran across the room. He grabbed my elbows(I just he was trying to give me a spot). Then he pushes my elbows in, instead of up and then the 100lb DB dropped right on my stomach. After that, I just went home. I was so pissed, that guy f0cked up my whole workout.

    He didn't say anything he just walk away. I think he got scared, because I was really mad.

    I hate those fuckers that come up and spot you out of the blue. One guy even asked me once, "You want a spot?" I said, "No thanks." That summabitch comes up and tries to spot me anyway. I threw the weight on the floor, told him to stay away from me, and he just left. What an asshole. I saw him there a few days later and he asked me for a spot on bench. He wants a liftoff, so I give him one. He DROPS the fuckin' weight on his chest then starts whining about a spot.. After 0 reps!!! I spot him, then he tells me he's trying for 8. So I ended up upright rowing 135lbs 8 times. Go figure. The guy then has the guts to tell some other guy in the gym that he can bench 275. What a moron, doncha hate those bastards??

    Maybe he doesn't like you for some reason and has been waiting for the right opportunity.

    ive never had to give any spots as most people in my gym are idiots and use only machines.
    those that use ffree weights come at different times from me.

    I asked this girl if she could be my spotter during some military presses, and when I said, SPOT! she started giving me a handjob.
    And I said no, not that spot, but youre a much better "spotter" then Cenaturion.

    Hehe.
