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?

    Health/Fitness Mags?

    Could anyone recommend a good and informative health/fitness print magazine?

    Thanks!

    Hey Chuck,

    I used to pick up Muscle Media.. and still do the odd time. It's VERY heavy on the BFL program, but it still does have some good information.

    Not sure what else to get... I have been disappointed in most mags, as they post routines for you, that you'd only use if your on some killer cycle (no offence to those who juice.. its all good)

    heh -- My brother used to pick up Flex + Muscle & Fitness, but save for a select few issues (one on nutrition, and protein supplements etc.) and one of their College specials (both M&F) they seem to be junk, so I don't intend on getting those

    I checked out the Men's Health website, but didn't find it terribly useful, but is the mag better than the site at all?

    There aren't any.

    There are some very good print mags that cover strength sports (the ones PMDL mentions), but no good general fitness mags.

    You are far better off doing research on your own and asking specific questions.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    IMO, Muscle Mag, Muscle & Fitness and Mens Health are generally pretty good magazines. Muscle & Fitness has improved over the past couple years to be geared more towards general fitness along with bodybuilding.
