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?

    10 Signs you may not be eating enough

    Since I'm in the midst of trying to gain some weight, and always have a hard time with it, here are some signs that you may not be eating enough to achieve your weight gain goals.

    1. You think about food constantly. (If you're thinking about it, you're not eating).

    2. You see a McDonalds/BK/Wendys/etc commercial and say "Hmm, that looks good" when you should already be eating it and saying "Yeah, this is good".

    3. You have food in your refrigerator. (You should have eaten it by now!)

    4. You saw that dead possum in the road and just drove past. (Wasteful!)

    5. You thought you saw a vein on your arm somewhere.

    6. You went to the ice cream place twice today and they still have some left.

    7. You STILL don't know what your dog tastes like.

    8. You get to the checkout counter at the grocery store and there's still some food left in the packages.

    9. Your nephew shoved a soggy graham cracker in your mouth and you spit it out. (I'm ashamed of you.)

    10. Your neice STILL hasn't sold the most girl scout cookies in her troop. And it's all your fault you skinny bastid.

    Name this movie:
    "...how sad. A fridge full of condiments and no food."



    I still have veins.
    ... and my abs.

    I like weights. You know where you stand with them. Well, sometimes you're lying under them, trying not to let them crush you, but you see, you KNOW they'd crush you if they could. There's honesty.

    Yep. Nice. When he's apartment gets blown up. Drew's comment reminded me of it.

    I'm actually in the process of losing my abs and I'm not sure how I feel about that. The bodybuilder just won't let go. But there are a few big name powerlifters with abs. That could (will) be me... in the 242's!

    I don't see any reason a 242 wouldn't be pretty lean.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    If your typing it means your hands aren't shoving food in your mouth so stop typing.

    11. You spend time making top 10 lists instead of eating.

    Just because you can't fathom eating more, doesn't mean you should'nt knock back another shake.
    Move heavy weight, eat, sleep, repeat.

    You guys are just bad. I was happily eating a healthy giant bowl of ravioli and after reading this I was hungry yet again.

    Honestly how can a guy get a break? Kitkat anyone?

    If you really are into the scene you would know how to type with one hand while eating with the other.
