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?

    Interesting competition, think i'll join

    Ok, since i've only recently started working out again after 5 months rest, i'm gonna be a lot behind everybody. I'll tell you my current status, however.

    I weigh in at an incredibly 185lbs, and my maximum bench is 75kg with about 5 reps. I can do 70kgs at 10 reps max.

    I'm gonna try again today with 200 lbs. I purposely haven't eaten much today to get down to 200 so I can try for 20 reps with BW.

    Well, I wasn't down to 200. In fact, I weighed in at 205.5, so I went ahead and did 205 again for reps. I got 16 reps again, which I think is the same as before.

    But I'm gonna get down to 200 eventually and try it...

    i kinda forgot about this contest

    i did 170 for 3 last week but i weight 172 if i would have rememebr i would of done 175 it will have to wait a few weeks now im maxing next week
    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"

    I feel so weak reading this. I weigh 195, but would be lucky to get 145x2.
