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?

    The really scary thing is the drink he is doing an ad for in the first link is illegal in the states. It contains nicotine, if I remember correctly, and is like the bastard beast child of Jolt, Red Bull and speed.

    I like weights. You know where you stand with them. Well, sometimes you're lying under them, trying not to let them crush you, but you see, you KNOW they'd crush you if they could. There's honesty.

    dude, kindergarten cop was badass, especially on the plane when he looks at this annoying little kid and snaps the pencil in two.

    priceless.

    Respect him as a bodybuilder...
    revolted by him as a human.

    but hey.. I'm sure he wouldn't like me either...

    - John Davies of Renegade Training


    "The trainee needs to look past the obvious solution to any problem and look for the real solution. For example, every arm training article in the last ten years to improve your arm circumference has included a workout based on curls and triceps extensions. Do you really think a lack of doing curls is the reason why most guys have less than impressive arms?

    Every article on how to improve your chin-ups includes a program with a shitload of chin-ups in it. Is that all you've got? Improve your chin-ups by just doing more of them?

    Really fucking cutting edge that is!"

    Celebs can make millions in Japan endorsing products. And many have. In countless bizarre and nonsensical commercials. A very quick and easy way to make a lot of money and the American public never has to know.

    I think there's a reason for celebrities to do commercials over there for quick money, in any outside country. I forget the reason, I think its because the US bans certain types of commercials featuring celebrities. Also, junior and kindergarten cop were done because he was type casted as a bodybuilder warrior death god. which is where he was coolest, but he was trying to break out of that. like vin diesel did that stupid kids movie recently. its so they dont get typecasted but some people like arnold or vin need to stick with what makes thme bad ass and not stupid looking.

    Twins was a great movie and was Arnolds first attempt at comedy. He did not humiliate himself at all, he actually showed an ability to do comedy. Kindergarten cop was good. Being a pregnant man in Junior, that was pretty brave. Now, Jingle all the Way, that script should never have made it into his hands, but hey, we all make mistakes. Overall, Arnold has had a great career. Kicking ass might be his forte, but I for one, am glad he tried to branch out and try a little comedy.

    I respect him for what he's achieved, especially for the bodybuilding scene.

    But, though i'd understand him wanting to avoid the typecasting - those roles are for the best and he should of stuck to them - Terminator - Predator etc. Such scenes as Arnold marching along with a bunch of 6 year olds, whilst singing songs and tooting on a whistle, does not fill me with glee (Kindergarten Cop) ... it's just wrong.
