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?

    Chest and lower abdomen. No matter how skinny I have been in my entire life (and I was REALLY freaking light for boxing to the tune of 140 lbs at 5'10), my lower abs have always had this sorta distended look to them.

    Haha, and I thought I was the only one with a huge butt. I probably carry my fat Legs=30%, BUTT=45%, upper body in general=left over (and that includes my "lower chest" :P). I will likely have defined abs if I cut, but I don't think I will EVER have veins showing in my butt!

    Hmm "black from the waist down", I like that one.

    Everywhere pretty much evenly. That's why it's hard to see any real results, which is disheartening, but at the same time it's why nobody believed I was 200 pounds when I was 200 pounds.

    Chubby face though. That's usually the first place to get anything back even on the tinyest of bulks.
