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?

    Sylvester Stallone :/

    Sylvester Stalone

    What the hell is up with all the veins in his chest/shoulders. I don't remember him being so veiny in the rocky movies.

    I believe he had an artery or something collaspe around the time of Demolition Man and the end result after surgury was the huge veins across his chest and down his arm.

    I think he looks amazing for his age.

    "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!"

    Van Damme was on gear? Damn, yo...

    Stallone looks crazy for his age. He's like the only older actor who has actually maintained a good body.

    Stallone was trained by former Mr. O Franco Columbo. I read an interview on the internet given by Columbo in which he discusses it.

    I think Sly will be 60 in 2006. He's awesome looking for any age.

    And I always heard he was 5'9"-5'10".

    yea If I could look half that good at his age and I survived that long, I'd be happy. he also has less bf than in the orginal rocky movies, well the first 2 anyways.

    According to that site he is 5'10". If you go back to the home page it has some pics of him training with Franco and Arnold for the some of the movies he did. He goes into some detail about his diet as well.

    He's a monster. Yes indeed he has managed to take very good care of himself. I'm thinking the veins are just due to natural aging, less bodyfat, etc.
