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 form

    I have done a couple sets of deadlift and am wondering if I am doing it right. You guys have already corrected my diet, routine, and squat form so I figure this would be easy for you.

    I get down with my legs parallel to the ground, back straight, and head up. Initially it is very hard for me to pull the bar up, and it feels like I am using mostly my back when I should be using more of my legs. Is this typical?

    Your pulling position is probably wrong. Read SS.
