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?

    deadlift form

    You guys have probably all seen ronnie colemans form when doing deadlifts. He kind of leans back at the very top of his reps:

    I've tried doing this and I can really feel it in my rhomboids.
    Good form or bad?

    He's Ronnie Freakin' Coleman... the guy is a goomba on steroids, he can do whatever he needs to do to get the weight up, it ain't nuthin but a peanut anyway.

    you know i dont think i implied in any way that Ronnie couldn't do watever he wanted. i was talking a lil bit more on his form so i could get a couple pointers on what good form actually looked like but thanks for throwin your awesome 2 cents in. glad to have you on the forum.

    It's just something he does at the end to show he's locked out. It doesn't have much to do with his actual deadlift form. Lots of poeple lean back a little at the end of the lift. Nothing really wrong with it.

    My post about ronnie coleman being a goomba was a joke, lighten up bro... jeez, glad to have you, too. BTW, if you're a beginner and you want see perfect form, don't watch a Ronnie Coleman's youtube videos. Don't watch people lifting huge amounts of weight because I don't care who you are, when you're giving max effort on any lift your going so sacrifice form.
