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?

    Bouncing the chest

    Once a man's chest gets more develop and muscular, he will be able to bounce it naturally (kinda like flexing it). One little question, will the bouncing of chest bring out any harmful effects (eg. slow down growth?)? Or is it totally harmless?

    and your bouncing your chest, why, exactly?

    i don't think it will have any affect on growth as it's not much different from flexing.....

    LOL I remember watching Lex Luger doing that and thought it was sooooo cool haha. Now that I can do it, I think it's stupid. People will look at you and think you're having a seizure. Find a better way to pass your time.

    Its hard to explain exactly Reinier what Dez means by "bouncing his chest" is making your pecs move up and down.It something males can do once they develop a certain amount of mass in their pecs.

    It just means flexing your chest. Makes your pecs 'bounce.'

    Well, they can bounce them by jumping up and down...but it would be cool if they could flex them and make them bounce

    Actually without sounding like a dog I'd have to admit I'd be pretty interested to see if a woman could bounce her boobs up & down.I do believe I saw a woman do that on the Jenny Jones show.Anyway it might not be wise for a woman to do that 'cause if her boobs were big enough(for instance 42 DD)on the way up the boobs would knock her in the face

    have you been around many boobs big show?

    highly unlikely that they would bounce up and hit a woman in her face. women can do them, as we have the same muscles as you men. however, we don't find it half as amusing as y'all seem to, so we don't practice. it's an old burlesque trick though. ironically..done for the amusement of men.

    And thus Tryska speaks for ALL women ever born.

    well b....let me ask you this....do you know any women that practice bouncing their chest for the hell of it? Women who can possibly get financial reward from said breast-bouncing do not count. *lol*

    I can do it...

    But..

    a) Tryska's right...I don't find it as amusing as you guys, and it's not as dramatic as you might think

    b) I certainly don't "practice"

    c) I can't believe I'm even getting into this discussion...LOL!
