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?

    could be genetic. or you simply need to gain more weight and hope that they'll fill out nicely.

    Genetics, dude... or bad form? I'm not symmetric either. ^_^ The bone structure of my ribcage isn't even symmetric. It's weird.

    Could have something to do with being human. You might want to look into that.

    Gain 25 pounds of muscle.
    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

    The more weight you put on the less dramatic it will look.
    To agree with what everyone has said here, nobody is symetrical, it sucks but chances are you notice it way more than anyone else does, think about how many times a day people are looking at your straight on without your shirt off, and actually has the time to notice that you aren't a perfect mirror image, (i'm hoping the answer to that question is not very often).
