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?

    I'm the strongest man alive

    not really but I feel like it lately. I started doing deads 5 weeks ago. My lifts have been growing unbelievable. Here are my dead lift weights over that time....

    Week 1: 135*8 185*5 185*3
    Week 2: 135*10 185*10 225*3
    Week 3: 135*10 225*5 225*3
    Week 4: 135*10 225*8 275*3 275*1
    Week 5: 135*10 225*10 275*7 315*5 315*3

    That is including my warm up sets. I plan on trying 365 this Saturday. I only used alternated grip on the 315 set. all the other lifts I didn't need it. I just wanted to thank you guys, for telling me about deadlifts... lol.

    Don't just call me pessimist. Try and read between the lines. I can't imagine why you wouldn't Welcome any change, my friend. I wanna see it all come down. suck it down. flush it down.

    I don't think everyone loves deadlifts but I think that with time anyone can perfect the technique,and get used to the movement
