The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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 video

    One of my sets from my 5x5 with 380lbs tonight. First week back doing heavy deads, last week I only did 330 to get back into things after taking the week off and nursing a strained muscle.

    I never noticed how little leg drive I get with the first (and others, but not as bad) pull, but if I try using more legs I get screwed up.

    Bench - 325 (old)
    Squat - 455x2 (old)
    Deadlift - 500(old)

    Total: 1280lbs 100% raw

    Nope, the only thing the bar does is pull my damn shorts down with each rep. The sock are a bitch to get over my calves and up to my knee though, I hope they'd go past my thighs but there's no chance of that. My shins get a tad beat up but nothing like the damn craters I got from doing it before.

    Good work!

    My only suggestion would be that you are starting with the bar too far out in front of you.

    Thanks chris. You mean too far away from my shins? The bar is actually touching my shins prior to my initial pull. I may subconsciously move it away a bit on the way up though, I can't tell from this angle. As you can see, my basement is quite a mess and my angles are limited for my spur of the moment recordings

    I'm curious to what my new max is. I know I could have gotten at least 10 reps with 380lbs.

    Yes, not close enough as you pull... Hmmm, are you sure the bar is touching your shins? Get a video (next time) from an angle which better shows it and perhaps I can give additional input?

    The bar is definitely touching as I begin my first pull, I make sure of that. Whether or not it stays there throughout the motion I don't know I'll have to get a better angle/pay attention next week, I may still be keeping it an inch off my shins for fear of tearing them off. TPB knurling is insane.

    i think it looks like it's not touching your shins because maybe your hips shoot up alittle faster than you're pulling back?

    I guess that could be.

    What should I shoot for max wise? I've only really maxed once and that was at 415, which I'm sure would be simple now.

    It'd be helpful to know your 3 or 5rm. 5x5 doesn't really tell us much.
    Only way to find out is to get in front of the bar and pull!

    I suppose. I just never know if I'm pussing out or if I really can't do the weight, I'm always worried about my back for max attempts.

    I'm sure I could have pulled 380 for 10 reps, but no idea what my 5RM is.

    Sorry, YouTube is a piece of garbage with me for some reason. Should be fixed now.

    Pretty strong. I would never deadlift in those kind of shoes though. Pull back more, and less up. Pretty nice other than that. I dunno which of us would be correct, but my negative is much faster. I don't like expending energy on the negative with deadlifts.

    The shoes are getting a bit worn out for deadlifts, they shift a lot. I need new ones.

    Yea, get something with a flat sole(wrestling shoes/Chucks, etc). Make sure to stay back on your heels. Looked pretty good.

    I do have another question. Why is it that my initial pull is slower and feels harder, but the rest of my pulls are fine? I'm not talking touch and go, I mean a full release of the weight and a new rep. Is it that my form is a bit different after the initial pull or something mental?
