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?

    Whats so strange about it? He didnt apply the spraytan to all of his face, so he sorta looks a bit paler in the facial area.

    Success is achieved by doing a little more than you thought you could, and a lot more than anyone else.

    Im a professional graphic designer and he isn't photoshoped, or someone very professional did it, I mean like 10 hours of work on it, and no one would do that unless they got tons of $$ im talking 50$ an hour.

    You can see where the orginal pictures, neck/face comes out a bit.
    Um...my neck does that when I have my head in that position. WTF are you talking about? And if it's Photoshopped, they got this kid to put his head in the exact position they wanted for each pose. Right...

    And the colors and textures and clarity are the same as the body. And the OP already showed a link to the site.


    Oh and your going to tell me he can easily pose without straining his face the slightest? I mean there is some strain, but compare it to other body builders posing.
    He looks like he's concentrating on posing in quite a few of the pics. And not everyone has to look like they're constipated in order to pose.

    Jeez. It's from an official Russian website, did you not look at my other post linking to the entire gallery? The host has been the #1 reputable Russian guru on Russian bodybuilding for over 5 years. You may also want to highlight the small errors in his offseason pre-contest bulked-up pic in this news article as well, from yet another highly popular and reputable Russian newspaper. It's real, get over it.

    Exactly. You know, I posted this because I just thought I'd share the most impressive thing I'd seen in teen bodybuilding in years and see if anybody else knew some stats or info on the dude, since it seems odd somebody this phenomenal would be so obscure.

    Anyway, I'm off to bed. Do the error-spot if you want. I'll give you a gallery of other legit images you can find the same problems with though.

    I'm pretty sure testosterone is the signal that closes the growth plates during puberty. A lot of pediatric patients with bone growth deficiencies stemming from inherited diseases (Crohn's disease, etc.) are treated by suppressing testosterone during puberty to keep the growth plates from fusing.

    The Russians say otherwise?
