The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Spourk im in VA and hatin it. Sorry. I love New Jersey so much that being in VA is killin me. Way to southern. I do hit the gym consistently though so that is a good thing. And if there is one thing I know its that when you start adding weight to that bar for squats it gets HEAVY quick. Dont kill yourself, and make sure you have a good spotter. I almost killed myself doing stand military presses without a spotter. I started to lean back and felt myself stumblin, man i regained my balance and brought the weight down. My heart was beatin so hard. Be SAFE.

    nice max bro


    u def need to get some more weight for squats!!!
    Way down this road, in a gym far away, a young man was once heard to say, "I've repped high and I've repped low, No matter what I do my legs won't grow."

    He tried leg extensions, leg curls, and leg presses, too. Trying to cheat these sissy workouts he'd do. From the corner of the gym where the big men train, Through a cloud of chalk and the midst of pain.

    Where the big iron rides high and threatens lives, Where the noise is made with big forty fives. A deep voice bellowed as he wrapped his knees, A very big man with legs like trees.

    Laughing as he snatched another plate from the stack, Chalking his hands and monstrous back, Said "Boy stop lying and don't say you've forgotten, Trouble with you is you ain't been SQUATTIN"
