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?

    Pit Stick

    I need the most powerful pit stick ever. Im getting this MAJOR problem. I sweat soooo much now in my pit area. Like, its doesnít smell or anything, its just very wet and gross. Iíve tried mitcham, speed stick and arm ní hammer but they donít work.

    Anyone know of a potent anti perspirant? Or anything that I could do to get rid of this problem? Like, its freezing here and im sweating in my pit area like a pig, in the summer wtf am I going to do? hahaha

    Trim your armpit hair short (as in #3 setting or shorter). That's helped me a lot. I've even sworn off anti-perspirants, and I definitely don't hesitate to break out in a sweat. Short hair works for me.

    Just about, yes. Grab hair clippers and throw a #3 attachment on them. You want the hair to be just long enough to not be so stiff as to poke and irritate your skin. I used to use anti-perspirant and deodorant mix but now I've switched to plain deodorant and I'm fine with it (at least while it's winter... I've yet to try this in summertime). Of course, you may have more of a sweat problem that I do. If it's really bad see your doc- there are sweat disorders and treatments to deal with them.

    Actually, I've had the same problem for a few years now - it's nothing that warrants surgery, I'm guessing, but it's annoying nonetheless. I find that different deodorants work for different people - to wit, my g/f swears that she uses "Dry Idea" on her underarms and it's so powerful that she can't sweat out of her LEGS for days. I'm not ashamed to admit that I snuck it once while she wasn't looking in order to try it... nope, not for me. I think so far, the best has been Old Spice High Endurance (the white solid, not the blue gel-stick). Adidas also made a good gel a while back but I haven't been able to find it recently At any rate, keep trying different ones. Oh, and I'm with Mike on this one - definitely trim those suckers way down.

    Drysol. Ask your pharmacis for it as they usually have it behind the counter. Apply once before bed and you won't sweat for weeks.

    You should probably move more north. Canada may be too warm for you.

    Old spice high endurance redzone going on 7 yrs now. I don't think my armpits can even develop sweat\smell anymore.
    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.

    Go for a more expensive anti-perspirant i.e. not one you can pick up at the grocery store. I used Red Zone forever, then decided to try one by Jack Black (male cosmetic company, not the fatass). It really is worth the money.

    I've used Certain Dry. Most pharmacies have it behind the counter or ask the pharmacist. It works well. Takes a few days to really work but on the same concept as Drysol. Not sure about in Canada, but its over the counter here in the US.
