The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey:

    I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

    Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he's carrying a beautiful rose in his beak, and also he's carrying a very beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you're drunk.

    "Soli Deo Gloria"
    "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!"
    Romans 7:14-25

    I already listed my lifting goals in my journal, but I'd like to get bigger, lower my bf% and keep it low.

    I'd really like to keep learning about nutrition and training (from WBB obviously).

    Sometime this year I'd like to get certified as a personal trainer once I move into my apartment and figure out how much extra money I'll have.

    I'd like to take some business and art classes at the local community college.

    I'd like to see WBB become one of the premiere resources for bodybuilding on the net; which I think it already is.

    And finally, start getting enough rest/sleep everynight.

    other than that simply pass the school tests, play good ball, get some @#!$, snowboard.
    I passed the tests, i quit playing ball, i didn`t have sex, i snowboarded.

    thats a 50/50.

    now i know i can do better than that in 2003

    Bench 315, Squat 405, and DL 450, all for several reps.

    Well, pretty sure I got the deadlift.....I might have the squat in a month or so.....bench I don't want to talk about.......

    I think I pulled this one off pretty well
