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?

    Job? I work 5 nights a week, Im saving up for a power rack and other equip.

    Watch a movie, I struggle to stay alert for 30 seconds, video game, I end up breaking the disk.

    Theres plenty to my life, I live and love my life to the full everyday.

    I was just asking if anyone else had ever felt like this before, someone once said something about endorphins or something.... anyone know?
    Playing several is different than being good at any

    Ruffian... yeesh, Im just wandering if anyones felt this before. Im not trying to get an attention. I dont know if feeling like this is a problem, but I got kinda concerned about my self when that did happen.

    Im lifting 4 days a week, plus rowing hard 3 times a week. Im very active.

    and i have no idea why this happened.

    As to me burning out... I dont know Jinkies, I really hope I dont, I dont think I could ever go back to the way I was prior to starting lifting. i havent done all this, all the early mornings, all the crap from other people, just to lose it all.

    Well see, I burn out, I burn out, if I dont, then thats even better.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    Yeah man Im not bashing, im just trying to look out for you; I lost mine for a while. I went all crazy and had no life and then I started being an active teenager and I started putting workouts secondary; right now im trying to find a happy medium but I've realized now that its time to take back control over my life.


    Keep enjoying it, I only was working for the benefits and forgot the rush working out gave me. Work hard and you might give me some competition in a few years haha

    Fuzzy, you always have the goofiest stories. You should write romance novels or something.

    Frankly... To everyone who is judging, I am merely commenting on a series of irritating threads fuzzy has started. If You are going to post a thread asking for advice then it is not proper to discount the advice which everyone brings. That was and still is the point I have been attempting to make.There is no reason to say that you need help because of 'cravings' if you will ignore the advice that people wasted their time typing out. IF you look through this thread you will see that he did not ackowledge one single post as a good form of relaxation, none were good enough and he supposedly has done almost all of them already and the ones he hasnt he just did not comment on. Fuzzy had already made up his mind to the reasoning of his 'cravings' before he even posted, and that was endorphins. And so instead of asking for help in curbing his cravings in a "general health" forum he could have posted it in "general chat" and experienced not only more viewers but less irritation. This board is, to me and (I think) everyone else, a board where you post should you have an injury, pain, be recouperating, or require advice on medications. NOT to post a silly thread about "cravings to lift".

    I dont feel I was out of line in the slightest and Im sorry if anyone does, perhaps this will clear it up. I think this post was in the wrong area and is making a mockery out of what should be a serious board in General Health

    Hehe! Don't mind her... She's all hopped up on codine or something

    I know I've been through stages where all I can think about is working out. I think that it's pretty normal if you're seeing good results and enjoying your workouts.

    Like others have said, don't let working out become an obsession. There has to be a balance which it sounds like you have.

    It also sounds like you have ADD Can't concentrate on movies and get frustrated real quick with video games? Geeze... what kind of 14 year old are you!?!? (Just kidding about this one!)

    Hahaha.

    Actually I have been diagniosed with mild Aspergers Syndrome... so maybe thats it?

    Im a freak with numbers and physics, but my literally skills arent great. Also cant focus much, unless Ive developed habits. Like with my school work, Im extremely meticulous about when and for how long I study.

    For me to function and feel happy, I need to have very planned routines, I hate the unexpected. I need to everyday be up at 5.30 am, and lifting something by 6 (or rowing) Guess this is why Im a good rower, I like the rythm and repetiveness of it.

    When I focus on something, its usually freakishy intensive, the hard part is simply focusing in the first place. In the gym, I usually go blank and become completely imprevious to my surroundings.

    I guess Im a man, I cant multi task to save my life, if anything, having to multi task gets me very annoyed, I prefer to give one thing my 100% attention untill the job is done.

    Once something does become central and very important to me, I find it very hard to let go, and not obsess.

    Ive been told my mind works differently to others, I dont really care, once Im really into something I dont stop.

    Its been the same with my music, Im a low brass freak, I passed grade 5 (8-12years average experience) after 6 months of first picking up a tuba.

    Also, back to the routine thing... I think thats what caused my anxiety. I had to miss a session earlier that day, and was feeling annoyed all day about it. Then I kinda had a fit.

    So maybe it is medical... either way I dont care. But chances are, lifting is something I will do for a very very long time. Just cause I need to.

    Docs have told me that the habits established now, at this age are the ones that will follow me for the rest of my life,if lifting is one... then Im all good.

    I can actually not be happy and satisfied if I havent done what Ive planned, wether thats lifting or school work or anything. I live by routine, and I guess my condition is the cause of that.

    Didnt think about the Aspergers till Deeder said ADD...

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.
