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?

    Damn Gino, you got to train with some strong women!
    I sometimes train with a guy that came first at the IPF masters world bench competition. I find it really motivating working with people much stronger then me, In May I will probly be going for a workout with canadas strongest junior powerlifter. That should be realy fun.

    That is cool, I always liked those guys!

    There's an old cool trainer at my gym and he used to compete. He is prolly like 60 years old or so and in great. He has a huge chest that looks 'Arnoldesque' obviously not as big but the same kinda shape. He's cool we talk and he gives me good tips. I remember one time I was leg pressing and he helped me get 2 crazy intense sets. He also critiqued my squatting and helped me with my form.
    "In the grand scheme of things, both things are quite superficial(obsessed with being muscular&ripped and incredibly strong). And yet lifting can teach you so much. My time at the gym--at least when I'm lifting--is invariably the high-point of my day. There aren't any questions; I almost don't even think. I go into an almost meditative trance-like state. Day-to-day worries become insignificant. I'm focused solely on the weight, and my reason for existence is clear. To move the bar and to improve on what I accomplished last time. Seldom are things so simple." - Blood&Iron

    "Most people cannot understand what burns in our blood, the gym is our addiction and iron is our drug. People don't understand why we commit hours a day to a goal where progress is so small it seems immeasurable, why we do cardio instead of watch TV, why eat 6 meals a day, why we insist on ordering diet soda or how we can drink skim milk. Most people will simply never grasp why we refuse to settle for a mediocre body." - Severed Ties

    Don't think so, but I did abs right next to him. I'm not a big wwf fan so I didn't really have anything to say to him so I just let him be.

    I was just joking because he is so darn rich. After the WWF went public, he made huge amounts of money.

    yep, but they took a big hot with the XFL, but I still wouldn't worry too much about his financial situation.

    Former WWF wrestler Paul Roma trained at a gym I used to be a member of. He was once a tag team champ from the WWF. I believe he was in Power & Glory with Hercules. All of you that grew up on wrestling in the 80's and early 90's should remember him.

    I met dillet and priest once on the streets in LA.

    I agree Chris ... the guys is awesome. Don't really like that worm he sports on his shoulder but he's awesome. Freaky legs for a taller guy too.
