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?

    Ego contests

    Hey, any of you guys/gals ever notice someone in the gym that just seems to keep trying to outdo you in everything, and is obviously having their own little contest with you right there, just to act cool. I'm not saying I'm the biggest or strongest in the gym, but I just think it's really funny, esp. when the guy doesn't know jack.

    Haha

    I just like laughing at the morons with garbage form. Then Beercan and myself will perform lifts right next to them with perfect form and usually more weight. It's pathetic.


    I had my gf doing dumbells curls next to some skinny kid. She was using the same weight with better form. It was f'n hilarious.

    ah man, it's so pathetic how many people in the base gym use crap ass form. I honestly feel I'm the only one that knows anything in there sometimes. Sometimes I feel like saying something to people, but they probably wouldn't listen

    Me and my partner do that. Sometimes I'll add a 2.5 to each side just to beat my friend.
