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?

    I'll never go to facebook.

    I'm a loyal myspacer. I've actually met alot of people on there. I like it, keeps me occupied when I'm bored and it allows me to stay in touch with old friends and my graduating class with ease.

    Doesn't matter, I wouldn't validate your request to join even if you wanted to. SO TAKE THAT! The WBB group doesn't want you!

    Correct, YOU MUST BE JUDGE BEFORE BEING ACCEPTED INTO THE GROUP OF HIGH WEIGHTLIFTING SOCIETY!

    God, I was wondering why the hell I got 4 group request confirmations in 1 day...

    its fun deal with it!!!!!!!!!
    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"

    How do you change your profile so that people who are not your friends can't see your profile?

    I'm not into attension seeking on a mass scale or like having stalkers, so i don't bother with either.
    I'm not moaning, i'm having an opinion.

    This would be why my profile has just about no information about me on it. I leave that all up to the IMAGINATION!

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
    Romans 7:14-25
