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?

    Anybody seen this giant Russian kid?

    Pics of him been making the rounds in the bodybuilding boards lately, but nobody knows anything about him, except for one online Russian newspaper article saying he's turned 18 now:




    (lol @ those 2 other kids in the background are like "ohhhh craaaap")










    (here he's doing an overall showdown with the adult class winners)



    Well, I'm blown away. I swear if I looked at his face alone I wouldn't think he was a day over 16. Last time anything impressed me this much was when Britain's James Lewis came onto the scene years ago as a 19 year old. This is like Russia's equivalent. I think we'll be hearing a lot about this brat in the future.

    Holy crap. That body doesn't even look like it belongs to him because his face looks so young. That's insane.

    Is this a photoshop joke?
    Credulous at best
    Your desire to believe in
    Angels in the hearts of men.
    But pull your head on out of your hippie haze
    And give a listen
    Shouldn't have to say it all again

    LOL, it's not a photoshop job, they're pictures from an official Russian coverage gallery. Go to the site marked on the pics, or see the entire show gallery here: http://www.body-building.ru/copper/t...s.php?album=92

    That makes me want to kill myself. I wouldnt be the least bit suprised to see that kid on the Mr.Olympia stage in 3 or 4 years.
    It's easier to point out the differences between us than to admit the similarities.


    This body holding me, reminds me of my own mortality.

    What is fake about it? There's no way that's a photoshop job, it looks flawless. He could be lying about his age but by how much, look at his face...

    What does he weigh?
    Face it: biceps are the muscle that classifies you as a muscle man.

    He probably put it on all sloppy and screwed it up, no big deal.

    Er, sorry, I was hoping this would be more like motivating than suicide-inducing :P

    Dunno about Olympia, if you put this kid's pic next to a similar-sized pic of a pro, he'll look pretty small. Maybe 6-8 years.

    What f=ma and bloodninja said... that last pic is from the pre-contest judging the night or morning before the actual show... then the actual show pics are the first seven.

    No idea, that's one reason I posted this thread, to see if anybody else knew some stats or info on the dude, since it seems odd somebody that phenomenal would be so obscure.

    Hmm, I didn't want to admit it, but... yeah, same here :P
