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?

    Don't let the bench get to you man. We all have ups and downs. You've been focused on other things lately anyway, so just go with it. Next thing you know, 300 will be flying up You're one fast dude as well. Think all the leg work has helped out? No doubt that was a killer squat workout as well. That many reps with 2pps makes the legs feel "funny". Keep it up, bro. Gonna have to let us know how the tire-flippin goes if you get at it again this summer

    kill - well, uh, ya see... my errr... special version of COD4 only let's me play offline on single player... if you catch my drift...

    K - thanks bro that helps. hope to see 300 by football or at least 295 cuz that looks intimidating. leg work has definitely helped with speed and stuff, and i have no idea why, but ever since i broke my fibula my speed and everything has shot up. i think i might head down to NAPA and see if they got any nice size tires so i can have my own

    You always need a helmet for those power cleans. How big is your backyard??? Post some pics when you get the bike.

    Nice cleans. Congrats on the new Ninja, I thought you already had it for some reason.

    I have a number of games but haven't had time to play them lately. COD4 is easy to hop on a server, play for a bit, and quit. Counterstrike is similar, but I don't have that installed currently.

    OMG YOU GUYS.

    got the ninja tonight

    rode it from 8-10 on the grass. it was AMAZING. i am seriously in love. this bike is so kickass.... literally one of the funnest things ive done in my life. only one hairy situation and it was at 10ish when the grass was dewy and wet as hell and the tires started slippin and i slid and dumped it goin about 30 on the grass. it was fun as hell, but it cracked the upper fairing and knocked the turn signal loose but those are easy as pie to fix. that wont happen on dry cement im sure...

    Haha awesome. Falling already, too. Nice. Make SURE it doesn't happen on cement. You'll be out from biking and training then.

    I didn't realize you were rocking the hawk already, nice. Bike looks very clean. Your folks' property looks pretty big, how many acres?

    thanks dude it is a nice bike no doubt, especially for what we paid for it. i'd say 2 square acres of grass/trees and then the house/garage.
