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?

    Have/Want

    What bodypart do you have (Triceps,abs,..etc.) that everyone compliments you on the most?
    What bodypart (Chest, Calves..etc.) do you have that you want to improve the most?

    i get compliments on my legs and butt the most but what i really want is a better (bigger) butt when my bf is low (comp weight) I had absoulty no butt when i was cutting last time it was sooooooo sad
    Way down this road, in a gym far away, a young man was once heard to say, "I've repped high and I've repped low, No matter what I do my legs won't grow."

    He tried leg extensions, leg curls, and leg presses, too. Trying to cheat these sissy workouts he'd do. From the corner of the gym where the big men train, Through a cloud of chalk and the midst of pain.

    Where the big iron rides high and threatens lives, Where the noise is made with big forty fives. A deep voice bellowed as he wrapped his knees, A very big man with legs like trees.

    Laughing as he snatched another plate from the stack, Chalking his hands and monstrous back, Said "Boy stop lying and don't say you've forgotten, Trouble with you is you ain't been SQUATTIN"

    I'm pretty proportional, but I get the most comments on my squatters ass.

    The only thing I want is to be really freaking strong. I mean, elite PL'er level strong.
