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?

    Good thing you threw that in.

    All I can say is... don't interrupt their workouts. And if you look like I do when I work out, make sure to wipe your face and hands, push your hair off to the side, relax for a little while until your face is no longer bright red. Oh, and make sure your nose isn't bleeding. I hate that sh*t.

    All silliness aside... I've never tried to pick a girl up at the gym, mostly because I'm never thinking too clearly when I'm there. But I've had conversations on the way out, or while I'm packing up my stuff... Problem is, 90% of the women at mine are the waifish cardio hound types, I'd rather not have anything to do with that. Though obviously their tastes seem to run somewhat larger than the average guy in there.

    I met one of my past girlfriends at the gym. There's no cool story behind it or anything. She had been staring at me for over a month every day at the gym with no signs of making the first move, and she was hot, so I started a conversation with her. The rest is history...along with the relationship, which lasted 9 months. No regrets - I'd do it again. I actually met a bunch of my best friends through her.

    The other day I was resting between my set on a bench and this hot girl came doing her one arm row with her ass right in front of my face. I looked.

    Some people REALLY get off on working out, I suppose.


    Well, this didn't last too long before silliness set in.

    There you have it.

    Go up and talk to the hot girl staring at you.

    If there is no hot girl staring at you, do not do anything until there is a hot girl staring at you.

    Or, you could focus on training while you are at the gym instead of worrying about finding a mate.

    That might get a hottie staring at you.
    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

    Yeah start hitting on girls at the gym. Just wait until you pick the one who's over-protective roid-raging boyfriend is watching nearby and starts throwing DBs at your a$$, and then twists a barbell around your neck.

    There isn't enough blood or oxygen getting to my brain to say anything intelligent when I'm working out so I wouldn't risk it. Although, this is generally the case even if I'm not working out.


    Can't stand guys that do their socializing at the gym. They need to get their as$es a membership at bally's and stay outta the real iron jungles. Those are the type of guys I'd picture wearing ankle-bracelets too. Just thought I'd throw out that random faerie comment.

    precisely why i refused to get a membership at the bally's almost right next door to my complex.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 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. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    There is this chick at my gym that is soooo fine. I saw her doing SLDL's on the platform and my knees started to buckle... Back arched, legs slightly bent, all spandex...

    She did 4 sets with just the bar though. Made me wonder if she was just giving everyone a nice tease rather than working out. Bah who cares!
