    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Strange fitness advice...

    http://www.ediets.com/news/printArti...=1&cmi=2422566

    Check out number 5:
    "
    5. Muscle weighs more than fat. FALSE!

    If I place 1 pound of muscle on a scale and 1 pound of fat on a scale, they will both weigh 1 pound. The difference is in total volume! One pound of muscle may appear to be the size of a baseball; one pound of fat will be three times the size and look like a squiggly bowl JELL-O.
    "

    Uhm...you just proved the point true, muscle weighs more, its more dense...

    LOL at his, and I reserve "LOL" for only the most special occasions.

    Who the hell wrote this, the curator of the museum of creationism?

    I love the logic used here. Common misconception: lead weighs more than feathers. it's true! put a pound of lead and a pound of feathers on a scale and they will both weigh 1 pound! In fact, no substance in existence is therefore any heavier or lighter than any other!

    Ok I think whoever wrote that is either mentally handicapped, or got hit hard by a shovel at some point in their life.

    How about this.....

    What's heavier: a pound of feathers or a pound of gold?

    Answer: a pound of feathers!

    The reason: Gold is weighted using the Troy system in which there are 12 ounces to the pound. Feathers are weighted with the avoirdupois system which is 16 ounces to the pound. Therefor, a pound of feathers is heavier then a pound of gold!

    Isn't that fucking awesome?

    Oh my God. My head just imploded. I tell you, the internet is a **** magnet.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    t-nation - Dissecting the deadlift. Anatomy and Muscle Balancing Videos.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    If a big ball of fat weighs as much as a tiny ball of muscle, then muscle is more dense - i.e. if you took and equal volume of muscle and fat, the muscle would weigh more.

    When we discuss a substance being "heavier" than another, we necessarily refer to density, something the "person" who wrote the article apparently didn't take the time to reflect on before they wrote an article on fitness advice.

    No we don't.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.
