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?

    Spanks all
    My Journal

    Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

    By trying hard we often achieve more than we dare hope

    You can't push yourself forward by patting yourself on the back

    Waiting to do something isn't enough, you must do it

    You can never achieve great success without great exertion

    Have the courage to accept what you can't alter and to alter what you can't accept

    Thoughts are mere dreams unti you put them into practice

    If you waste today crying over yesterday, you'll be able to waste tommorrow crying over today

    "If","perhaps" and "but" never got any person anywhere

    The most important day of your life is today

    "Shut up and curl."

    Wait a second...

    "The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That's what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they'll go through the pain no matter what happens."

    Arnold Schwarzenegger

    Or my words, "Make it hurt good."

    Not specific to weightlifting, but inspirational nonetheless:

    "You can dream a little dream or you can live a little dream. I'd rather live it, because dreamers always chase but never get it." --from No Regrets by Aesop Rock
    If one person can do something, anyone can learn to do it.
    Do what you've always done and get what you've always gotten.
    There is no failure, only feedback.
