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?

    Remember that little post i did a few months ago on STATS!

    Well, I finally measured myself, and i am a little disappointed, but anyway here are my measurements:

    Arms: 13.5"
    Chest: 35"
    Waist: 31"
    Thighs: 22"
    Calves: 14"
    Height: 5'5
    Overall: Good-looking
    Rating: 5 (in terms of size)

    I never got to shoulders. I will post it later. So there u go. I am a skinny-muscular mofo.

    So let the Measurements Race begin!

    Actually, correct my measurements. I just had someone do them for me.

    Weight: 153 lbs
    Height: 5'11
    Arms: 13.5"
    Calves: 15"
    Thighs: 21"
    Waist: 31"
    Chest: 36"
    Shoulders: 43"

    -

    Currently I'm 18 years old, just started strength training a few months ago. Just started really eating a week ago. So far, in the last month I've gained a half inch on my arms, 1 inch on my chest, and (WOW!) 3 inches on my shoulder width. Waist size remains the same.

    Could that be considered good gains?

    It's cool that you guys have bigger calves than your arms, that's unusual for most guys
