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?

    Decided homework could wait. My statistics class is a bitch, mainly using that fucking TI calculator. Anybody see the broncos game? Peyton looked flawless, and once we got the lead our defense looked vicious. Loved when Von Miller tebowed on his double sack play.

    For real. I graduated college in 2002. I can't even remember what homework is like. School sucked and I still don't miss it, lol. I mean when else in life do you get to pay someone else loads of cash to give you tons of work, lecture you and grade you on your effort. Seems sorta fucked up really.

    Good workout, B. Were you just maxing out on the cleans or hitting feel sets? I wish I had your bench strength. How far are you gonna cut?

    What year are you in college? I see you're 22 so you have to be close to done. I'm in senior year now and it fucking blows dick. I can't wait to get out. I agree with Keph, this shit is backwards. I'm all for busting ass and learning (which I learn nothing) but they paying 10 grand a year I'm not up for.

    PS - you know you don't have to put "squat" in "full squat cleans" right? Lol, n00b. "FULL CLEANS"

    Or just cleans.
    Move heavy weight, eat, sleep, repeat.

    Thanks guys. Ya, school is a necessary bitch.

    I'm in my.... 4Th year? Idk. I'm not on a four year plan so that really doesn't apply. I fucked off the first two years or so, to the point where I was only allowed to take one class, then two classes the next semester. I'm finally caught up on the probations. Next semester hopefully I finish up my gen ed and transfer. Then I'll have another 2 difficult years, but at least it will be in classes I'm interested in. Kinesiology major.

    Cleans were just by feel, but 195 was pretty tough, above 90%.

    Sorry Jed, we're not all ex oly lifters. When I say power clean, that's what you see in the football weight room. When I say squat or full squat clean, that's what you see in the Olympics.

    And I'm not cutting or bulking, just trying to hang in there as my body naturally wants to lose weight.
