The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Thanks to everyone on this site

    I wanted to make this as the 1 year aniversary of me changing my life...1 year ago i started lifting weights and my life is changed, let me go through.

    i started 1 year ago at 275 lbs, really fat and strong for never working out, bench - 190, deadlift - 315, leg press - 6pps.

    then i cut down to about 195, with the help of all of you.

    then i bulked up 13 lbs to 210, with the help of all of you.

    now i cut 10 lbs again, once again with help of all of you, now i bench 265 x 3, deadlift 405 x 4, and squat 405 x 1, 255 x 20, 225 x 30.

    thank you wanna be big, as you guys keep me determined to reach my goals, i never thought i could make such awesome and supporting friends over the internet, GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.

    Amazing, amazing progress. I'm jealous! Keep up the great work!
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Good job so far bro. I'm hooked too, I figure it's a healthy addiction. I'm addicted to two things, working out and , luckily, they go along together nicely.

    "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!"
