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?

    sure, that would be cool! I hope she doesn't mind that I used her site as a reference.

    what a good day im having!

    lol, i think i got the bonus. This cow slides down a hill and I had to figure out how far it slides across the field, given the mass of the cow, the angle of incline, and the coefficient of friction. I hope that stupid cow slides 80 meters.

    the teacher really trusted me though. He left me in the room completely by myself and left school, telling me to not forget to turn off the lights and lock the door.

    Coefficient of friction won't be constant across the entire field, nor will the cow's hooves resist the same amount across that distance.

    Then again, as a simplified thought experiment, I suppose its pretty straightforward.

    Hey the school newspaper finally came out today! My article is HUGE compared to everything else, heheh. The editors made it more reader friendly by breaking up each question into a rectangle shape and having a bunch of colorful rectangles all over the page. Other than that they did not screw with it.

    Despite my confidence in the fact that no one would read it, I actually had a couple of people come up to me today. A few girls, a few guys, and most interested was my ENGLISH TEACHER. Apparently she was impressed with my info and thanked me for finally explaining to her why free weights are better than machines. Having this innocent little short woman named Peggy say that to me just about made my day.

    It won't help.

    At the end of the day, the average person is still going to go eat at McDonald's and watch TV till his/her head explodes.

    Damn, I hate those frictionless hills! Cows always losing their footing and sliding down.
