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?

    My olympic weightlifting shoes experience

    I got my pair a few days ago and I have to say I'm definately impressed, especially my overhead press. I feel so much more stable and more explosive at the bottom. I was already squatting deep without them, but it's definately easier to get out of the hole and to keep my back upright. This was my first time using them and I can say right now, I'll never go back to regular shoes again. Getting the shoes has also given me the motivation to work on my overhead squats, something I did not pay attention to before.

    I shot a PM to Sensei about this but I wanted to hear you guys' opinions also. What do you guys think about deadlifting in olympic weightlifting shoes? I pull sumo, just to let you know. Would it be detrimental b/c of the raised heels, or does it matter?

    EDIT:
    I just took a picture to show you guys what I got -
