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?

    Ok, a long time ago, from whom I dont remember, but I heard that if you are storing fat (ie. not losing fat, maintaining your current fat stores) the fat is more firm and substantial, but if you are using it for energy the fat is squishy and jiggly, like its being broken down.
    I tend to believe this because I used to be pretty fat and my fat back then wasnt jiggly like the crap I've got around my waist right now. Is this an indicator of burning fat?

    Am I simply on crack?

    well i don't know if what you said was true, but my gut has been shrinking (pants fitting much more loosely) and does feel soft and sqishy as opposed to firm. Maybe its just because our skin hasn't quite shrunk back its former position. Whereas before its was well streched and everything was packed in tight.

    That's probably more of the reason. Fat is fat.

    OK, if you were on crack, you wouldn't have any fat to worry about

    If you can't knock out a dozen or so chins, your either too fat or too weak, take your pick...

    Actually, there are two different types of fat-visceral and subcutaneous. Visceral is the harder type and tends to be in areas where there is a lot of fat storage, ie. gut, hips, and butt. Subcutaneous is just a layer of fat under the skin causing the smooth look. Visceral is actually the most difficult fat to get rid of.
