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?

    training / diet increasing test / gh???

    i know we all hear statements like 'squatting boosts natural test', or eating 'anabolically' promotes testosterone, etc. How much truth is there to these statements? i mean i'm sure there's some reason people say them, but is there any significant change in testosterone levels of a healthy male who begins doing a squat routine?

    (oh, when i meant diet, i mean foods that people say raise test, i don't mean things like fat, for instance, where eating fat when you previously weren't might raise test by correcting a deficiency)

    Anecdotal: I'd say it can be pretty significant. Check out some pics in the Members Pics section. After a year of training, some guys look like they aged at least 5 years...it's the testosterone.
