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?

    deadlift socks

    Are these worth getting? Cause my shins have been getting pretty sore lately.

    not bloody yet, but i have a scab and it will most likely tear. Right now I wear sweatpants but they dont help too much. Are deadlift socks that much different than soccer socks?

    I don't know, I've never used DL socks myself, but I have seen people put duct tape on their shins where the bar travels to prevent the bleeding/scalling while helping keep the bar from sticking like they would with sweats.

    I have started using my neoprene knee cuffs on my shins when I dead lift. I wasn't using them anymore and they work really well at protecting the shins in dead lifts.

    I used to go the duct tape route as per Lenny's advice, and it works well. But if you have hairy legs and aren't shaving its like waxing (not that I know to much about waxing... ) when the tape comes off.

    For my last two dead lift sessions I have worn some soccer socks that a good dude gave me, they don't really protect against bruising, but I haven't broken the skin like I always did in the past. I vote for the socks!!

    I don't have deadlift socks, but I sometimes do deads in soccer socks. I don't know why though because I invariably still end up with bleeding shins with the soccer socks. Sometimes I wrap my shins with my knee wraps ( not tight like I wrap my knees when squatting though). I never end up bloody that way.

    I used to bleed all over the bar. Then I started to wrap either duct tape or electrical tape around my legs, but if you do enough volume it just rips right through and you bleed on the bar anyway. So now I have deadlift socks and on my shin that is worse, I put tape underneath the sock. It works pretty well and worse case scenario some blood gets on the sock, but the bar stays clean and I no longer leave DNA samples on it.
