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?

    Dude I would defnitely come down to bako to stir up some dust. Straight up, that is pure disrespect, especially if he knew what was going down. I feel really bad for you man, i've been cheated on before too, and it really sucks alot.

    First of all, bako. If he knew, it is just as much his fault as anyone elses, and he deserves an ass kicking. The way things are looking we have a little crew to take him out. Haha

    Second, congrats jedster on your newly found girl. I actually am working on several myself, Ill keep you posted.

    OH DB tri extension : 60 3x10

    dips : x20, x18, x16 these were strong and solid. havent done dips that good in a while.

    Congrats jed...

    Be careful on the bike man...It doesnt take much to get out of control and get injured, especially at highway+ speeds.

    More over, most drivers are douche bags and dont pay much attention to bikers. Yesterday on I25 north, I had some old **** in a harley davidson ed. F150 cut me off. I was going 85mph and about to pass him. We made eye contact as I could see him in his side-view mirror, yet he still cut me off. If he had pulled off the interstate....chances are I would have too, and beaten his old ass at the nearest stop light...you really have to pay attention and be proactive for your safety while on a motorcycle.

    Congrats on the chick and the jacket. I am trying to decide if I want to get a Tourmaster textile-type of jacket or if I want to just spend some extra coin and get a leather jacket..only prob is the one I want is about $800 for the size-fat that I need.

    coke - thanks dude. it was heavy lol.

    fooz - thanks. its not that much it went up though, i could have gotten 2 but i racked it thinking i was gonna go for a new PR but then my thumb exploded in pain.

    borracho - i will be careful man. i know especially after riding 20 miles back from work with 50 mph winds that it doenst take much at all. glad you got out of the predicament safe, wish he would of pulled over with ya idk man, leather would suck in new mexico (its damn hot isnt it?) from what i hear, textile will save your skin enough, unless your racing at 160+. my textile jacket is honestly amazing, aplinestars exile textile mesh jacket. only ran me 160 also which is pretty cheap for the quality i got and name-brand.

    Ohhhhh, well that changes everything.

    I'll lead the pack, then.

    Probably a good move. I've read too many stories about idiots (not calling you an idiot bud) that bragged about doing illegal stuff online, only to get busted for it.

    Because you're far from hardcore and I know you wouldn't harm a fly. You'd be in the back making mean faces.

    True...one of the guys on the VW forums posted a video of "someone" doing an indicated 180mph...a few days later that "someone" got a visit from the local police as it was not that hard to figure out who it was...any how..be careful what you say online...it can come back to you at some point.

    Wow, conversation blew the **** up in here. Cool deal with the new lady friend there, Jed. Enjoy these days, bro. Whether or not she's "the one", there's nothing like being young, it's summer time and you're out on a date with your gal. Next thing you know you'll wake up, you're almost 30 and those days are long gone my friend Although, as you get older, there are other things that get much better, trust me Good call on taking the speeds outa your sig. I doubt anything would have come from it, but better safe than sorry, right? Nice bench, as usual, but what's up with your thumbs? I didn't quite follow that.

    thanks, K. yeah yeah i know, make the most out of it. ive done a pretty ****ty job so far so im tryin my best to make teh most out of it.

    well, 2 years ago (my sophomore season) during football season i would dislocate my thumbs nearly every day. at least 3 times a week, and every game. i would load them up with tape and suck it up. i couldnt move either thumb all night after games, and a few nights were unbearable. im not talking full dislocation, like my thumb jsut hanging there, but it was definitely some type of it because it hurt worse than when i broke my thumb when i was younger. but the doc couldnt do nothin about it. for some reason, this past year it only happened about once. it scared me cuz i thought itd happen every day after that but it didnt, thank god...

    so about the benching part. my last session (225x10 i think it was), my thumb hurt again. its not the same type of swollin, immobile hurt. but it was piercing and i couldnt really move it without using my other hand. but it was freely moveable, just hurt. idk why its happening. ill mess around with my grip some and hopefully i will fgure it out. but thats why i say im worried my thumbs will get f**ked up this year again. let's hope for the best though.
