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?

    So do these guys lift? or are they just writers, I know that Chris Mason works out, because he has pictures. I'm just curious to who these senior members are and what they look like. Thanx

    maki lifts..he's pretty big..

    he has pics in the members pics forum, somewhere deep down in there i think. i think daniel used to lift, and has slacked recently (or at least i've seen posts pointig to this)...most all of the moderators lift, though, or have been fairly well-educated in phisiology and nutrition as some point.

    take a look at his journal in the journal section.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Don't worry. If you're concerned, I believe most all of the moderators here are bigger, stronger, and more experienced than you are. We are mods because we like this stuff and have some pretty solid background in it. We're not all freaks, but we've been around the training room a bit.

    Maki is the national Canadian tiddlywinks champion. He spends long hours each day reading romance novels and drinking expensive coffee. His lack of confidence is superceded only by his lack of genital prowess.

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.

    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me.

    Not really related, but on the staff page the link to Maki's site is broken. It reads dynamiconditioning.ca and not dynamicConditioning.ca (only 1 c)

    Hey kid, did you check out all 13k posts to see if any are pics? He's got plenty of photos on here, so if you are going to call someone out, why don't you actually take some time to search first.

    Plus he has fabulous hair and nails.
    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
