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?

    Dropping a log - TJM's deadlift log!

    I'm fairly new here, I think I'll start a log.
    age- 19
    height - 6'2
    weight - 260
    experince - 1.5 years
    Deadlift goal - 700lbs by summer 08.
    Backround:
    I'm a bodybuilder who dabbles in powerlifting. For my 1st year of training I had no gym membership. I mainly just benched and deadlifted in my garage no sqauts cause I had no rack just a bench a bar and some DBs, in fact, I did no legs other then what I got from my deads and SLDLs. I progressed a lot just doing those movements though. I went from 150lbs @ 6'2 to 260lbs. My max incline bench was 315 and my record for deadlifts was 500x6. Recently (as in december of 2007) I finally joined a gym but unfortunatly torn my pec and have been recovering from that ever since. So, for the past 2 1/2 months I been concentrating on becoming a better deadlifter and squater. I've finally been able to train legs with sqauts and all the nifty leg machines!
    I'll start this log to track my progress and get opinions / suggestions on what I'm doing.
    How I train:
    I do whatever I feel will help me. I take into consideration westside methods, stuff I've read from Stefán Sölvi and observed from watching powerlifting vids. You'll see a mix of bodybuilding and powerlifting.
