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?

    Why do people deadlift like this?

    I know these 3 guys who deadlift the weight up and bring it down slowly 3/4 of the way and bring it up again. They think that doing this 5 times is the same thing as deadlifting 5 reps. I find the hardest part to be lifting it off the ground...

    Why would anyone want to do this?

    This actually brings up a question ive been meaning to ask. Is it better to completely let down the weight on the ground or just dead lift it so the weights hit the ground but you dont let the tension go and you dont bounce the weight. Just kind of a tap on the ground to letyou know you cant go any further. I feel that if i dont let the tension go its more natural to go up and down and doesnt break my stride. This could be an easy way out though and i dont want that. Any clarification would be awesome. Sorry to hijack the thread but i have the same inquiry

    I asked these guys if they were doing those but they said they were doing regular deadlifts.

    Guitarguru, I always let the weight rest on the ground before my next rep. A tap on the ground indicates a touch and go and is ok IMO if your doing many many reps but for 5 you want to make them count. I always let the weight rest and than explode upwards again.

    Because others might have something to teach me?

    You should deweight fully on the floor after every rep. It's called a deadlift for a reason: you're supposed to lifting dead weight.

    I thought it was because you were dead by the time you get done with the lift. ha
