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?

    Uhh...okay. Sure thing, guy. Whatever you say.

    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesnít realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.

    I do notice that sometimes when deadlifting with a mixed grip the bar won't be parallel to my body. It seems that the overhand arm pulls the bar closer and the underhand is slightly further away. I'm not sure if anyone else gets this, but this could cause people back problems because of uneven stress on the lower back from the different torques on each arm. Not a major factor, seems easily correctable if you are careful with your form...
