The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Video of yesterday's deadlift session

    Yesterday was my first heavy day back in the gym since being sick. I tried something new with the deadlifts. I used 25's as the biggest plates to extend the ROM and then I put chains over the bar to make it harder. They kicked my ass.
    These three sets the bar weight is 379 lbs(we have a pair of 22 lb plates).

    379 + 4 Chains x 3
    379 + 6 Chains x 3
    379 + 8 Chains x 1

    Sumos for the win.

    Once you do sumo there is no turning back! It's such a comfortable position for the lower back.

    Is there any advantage to using a bunch of smaller plates opposed to bigger ones? Is it balance related?

    Bro your sick...and I love it lol! Very good job....my two cents...keep the bar in a bit closer. Have you ever tried turning your toes out just a bit more? All in all....great technique and super work ethic. Good job.
