The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Biceps Bet with my buddy

    Lol, one of my old time budies has informed that he's making a bet with me for the summer. "I bet my biceps will be bigger than yours by the end of summer" So he's pretty going to be in his basement doing biceps curl sand tri for the next 2 1/2 months, while i'll be in the gym. Instead of discuraging him i told him i''m even going to give him a head start, i wont be able to get to the gym untill unde of June.

    What do you guys think of this? I almost pissed myself laughting, kidna feel bad thoe :evillaugh

    Do the 2 hour arm blitz everyday like that one guy posted. Or buy some synthol.

    Its not that easy, as long as you increase somewhat he'll be struggling. Say your 18" now and hes only 16". If you grow to 18 1/2" he has to gain 2 1/2" in less then 3 months, which is almost impossible. Work for hypertrophy and do higher reps and sets.

    The bet is for measurments gained not the size as origonally posted, typo. So we'll see who will gain the most on their arms, inches/cm wise.

    His point was that in most cases the bigger your arm is (in a muscular sense) the harder it is to make grow. It is much harder to go from 18 to 19" arms for most folks than it is to go from 12 to 13" arms.

    haha the day before you both measure just do the stupid 8 hour arm workout you can find in m&f or some other muscle mag..it'll put in about 1-1.5" of useless size for that day.

    Let me translate for those who may have missed it.

    "I have 18 inch arms,envy me"
    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.

    Unless your bodyfat is low and you aren't very tall. In which case 18 looks very good.

    18 inch lean (sub 10%) arms are bigger and more impressive than 99.9% of the population of this earth. Pretty impressive IMO.

    Well to be 22" + you would have to be Ronnie coleman in the off season. You don't need arms even close to that big to be impressive. I mean a really lean 16" arm looks good on some people, 17 or 18 lean is nice.

    I'm impressed more if you are a lean 16" than a sloppy 18+

    edit : especially when your short. 16" on a little guy would be impressive.

    Arnold had a thing he did for his arms the day before a competition. It was something like a few sets every hour all day. Search and I'm sure you can find it.
