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?

    For me it is squat, head and shoulders above the other two lifts... deadlift is ahead of bench though. Nothing beats coming up with a heavy squat, that feeling can't be matched.

    Almost a dead heat for me with squats and BP. I gave squats the slight edge for votings sake. Then deadlifts 3rd. Comparatively, my BP is probably my best of the 3. In the gym best are squat 955, bench 705, DL 650 (probably why it's my least favorite! LOL!)

    For me,

    Deadlifts
    Bench close second
    Squats very distant third

    I love front squatting actually, but I can't stand the back squat, even though I'm decent at them and have short legs.

    I can't vote because my favorite and my best are different.

    favorite: bench, deadlift, squat
    best: squat, deadlift, bench

    I want what I don't have.

    I'm built like a deadlifter; so naturally DLs are my favorite and best lift. I'm a terrible bencher, so squats are number 2 by default.

    IDK? I guess my lifts are all pretty even as far as devolopment. My bench is prob my most sound lift technique wise then squat as I have on issue wk adductor to fight through. My deadlift might become my strongest lift eventually. I feel I am sloppy as shit with it I just yank that sumbitch of the floor but my back is by far my stropngerst bodypart.

    I dont really have a favorite I really like them all tbh, if im fighting through tough lifts im happy simple as that ohhh im also really good @ dumbell curls : )

    Bench is last because of ungoing shoulder problems making it the hardest to make progress on.
