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?

    Really liking deficit deads

    So far after two sessions of deficit deads (using 25s instead of 45s) I can really see where my problems are. My one rep max is around 400 and I find repping out 250 while trying to keep good form is quite difficult. These definately force you to use your legs and if you don't you'll know. The weight is light but the motion is difficult to keep perfect. I think this is going to be the best thing for my deadlift.

    I like them a lot too. But I'm too lazy to pile on 25's so I just stand on a 3-4" platform.

    I did them again today. I decided to try 315 for a single and see what happens. I can do 335x5 without too much problems. 315 literally flew up like it was nothing, literally.

    I'm confused, wouldn't you expect 315 to fly up if you can do 335*5?

    Everyone is different, but my strength on deficit deads is almost the same as my off the floor strength.

    I never had the speed off the floor. 315 would come up slow but after a certain point it was easy. This time the bar actually accelerated through the lift very very well this time.
