The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Opticen??

    Why does this stuff not blend well? I tried doing it at home and the ice stays slushy. I brought it to the gym tonight and had them mix it. Same problem. It taste fine but doesn't blend good.

    Actually, it blends exceptionally well? I really have no idea what you are talking about. I mix mine with a spoon.

    Are you talking about how thickly it mixes? If so, simply add more liquid.

    A little trick if you are trying to mix it with ice, blend it first at room temperature and then add the ice.

    I put 16 ounces of water, 3 ice cubes in a blender, turn it on, and add 3 scoops of Opticen. 30-45 seconds later, smooth shake.

    Tasty too.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Reach down between your legs and find a pair of balls. That's what it takes to lift big weights. Genetics is the weak man's excuse for why he sucks at life. Don't be that guy - RhodeHouse

    I don't think she was speaking of clumping? I think she was speaking of how thickly it mixes.

    I'm trying it again tommorow with warm water. What I meant was the ice doesn't dissolve and it's slushy......I'm doing something wrong. let you know tommorow since it's a low carb day. It mixes fine with my egg whites though.

    Ahhh, ok. Yeah, mix it first with the room temperature water and then add the ice. That should do the trick.
