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?

    haha dude I'm 4 years removed from high school football and every time I hear or think about football I think about it. It doesn't help that I put a bunch of highlight videos on my phone so I'm constantly looking at them lol. Gotta let go. You're squats look really strong though.. looks like there wasn't much of a drop off at all. Curls are pretty strong too.

    dblock - yeah man. thanks for the props, idk if that was a joke about the curls or not :P

    flynn, kill - thanks dudes. yes i was very sore and tight from them afterwards. yes i stretched.

    K - thanks. ill prob lift at the highschool where i have been, or my buddies gym that i usually lift at when its not at the school.

    wow, surprisingly we're STILL in soccer. our substate final game was last night vs. the #3 ranked team in the state. they were 13-3 when they came in, they were 13-4 when they came out. it was an incredible underdog win, and i couldnt beleive myself when i was crying after we won. we are unranked and had an 8-8 record. now we are one of the eight teams in our class to head to the state tournament! first round game is thursday, second round friday, champs is saturday. so i might be off liftin for another week, lol!

    also i think i broke my toe. right big toe. either that or its f**king jammed to hell. i played on it because the adrenaline was pumping, but it hurts now. eh well.

    I wont fly out, Jed. But I will mercilessly call you a fatty fat fat online and make fun of what you've become (if you should choose to go that route).

    I am super impressed with the strength you've managed to maintain wwhile wrapping up school crap dude...not an easy task at all. And I will echo what KS said about this coming summer...live it up but do it safely so you can do it again.

    Wow, thats great news about the state championship.

    Cant believe you cried because you stumped your toe though

    He he! Seriously though, bummer about the toe dude. Just strap it to your other toes and battle on I guess?

    Congrats on getting to state, dude. I think you're just making all this **** up to give yourself an excuse to not lift for another week. It's like "Oh yeah, we won regionals...it was close but I saved the day. Sucks cause now I can't lift for another week..."

    Just ****in with ya, bro. Good luck at your "state finals"

    well we ended up getting fourth in state. we played our first game vs #9 and won 2-1. our second game we played #2 and lost 2-1 which led us to the consolation match vs #12 which we lost 2-1. the consolation match was total bullsh** because we scored a goal off a throw in and the refs said it didnt hit anyone and just went straight in the goal, but it bounced off one of our players, their goalie, and then off the foot of one of ours into their net. it was bullsh** but whatever, fourth is okay.

    Legs looking ripped in that photo lad. You look like a tough bastard too, where do you play, centre half?

    Congrats on coming 4th.

    Oh, and FIFA is a football game for the xbox/ps3, buy it if you have a console, it is awesome.

    matt - thanks mate. i do play very physical, too physical a lot of the times. but i made it without even getting carded once all season. i think the refs considered my size compared to most and figured that people will flop to try to get calls on me. i play back in the defense, either side defender. oh yeah ive heard of it, i dont have consoles though. just PC :P

    flynn - beleive it or not one of our mids is a quarterback and can throw it literally to the near post from the sideline with some room to spare. back to liftin indeed.

    ill post a few more pics up.
