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?

    Another deadlift advice thread

    I pulled 505 today which is my first time pulling over 500. I also filmed it from the front this time so hopefully you get a better look at my pulling. It's on a 1.5'' mat because the floor is ****ed up underneath so it stopped the bar from rolling away. My weakness is my lockout, so i'm not worried about it.

    I really tried to keep my upper back tight and squeeze it off the floor (as was suggested last time) and it seemed to make a big difference. Is there anything else you guys can suggest that will help me out?

    BTW, this was a 30lb PR

    Thanks in advance

    That's a nice, efficient pull. No wasted effort at all. You'll get a lot out of your technique for a long time.

    I'm doing something(s) wrong. My deads are on par with my squats. My feet are much closer than yours and I feel like I am starting from a much lower position hip-wise. Are you doing what is considered a SLDL?

    nice pull.

    Thanks guys. My last video I missed 495 I think, and was told to keep my shoulders tight, and squeeze it off the floor. Seems to have helped alot.

    That was good. You kept your butt down, then brought your hips forward.
