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?

    deadlifts

    i have a question about deads. when doing them i stand on a platform so at the bottom part of each rep the plates don't hit the floor. i then continue doing my next rep from there going back up then down again. my question is, should i be doing them of the floor and treating each rep as a single? meaning, at the the bottom off each rep place the bar back in its starting position on the floor and begin the next rep.
    any ideas?

    I do yes...

    Although I don't just put the bar down, I keep the pressure on.. I let the bar just touch the floor and bagn its up again.. Nice and controlled but yes back to the starting position..

    I know many people use a raised block for straoght legged deadlifts as it allows for a greater stretch of the hamstrings..

    I would stick to no raise and as I outlined above..

    I agree with Hulk on the deads. For stiff-legged, it can become dangerous to let the bar move past mid-shin level. This will cause most people to round their back which is not good.
