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?

    Cool that you got play a varsity game, man. Sounds like a long ass match. You're gonna be wiped out tomorrow. Probably take it off from the gym if you hadn't already planned to.

    Just went back over the last few pages. You're doing a great job jed. I'm really impressed with your dedication. I will call it your jedication. I wish I was this focused at your age, it will serve you well.

    You need to hit at least 335 on your next squat max, btw. You have no business not maxing higher than me in ANY lift.

    Nice bench session Jed. Neat and tidy.

    195x17 is huge. No doubt about it.

    Damn, that's a lot of reps for your body weight! Why did you do that instead of the program? Just because? That's very impressive, though, dude... really impressive!

    What, did you buy a crackberry or something? I could never touch one of those. I'd just remind myself of all the C-men at my company. Too important to pay attention in meetings and have to constantly be texting on that ****. Jed, are we gonna catch you in a deadlift vid texting on that **** right before you lift or what?
