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?

    Some advice on DE work

    Rather than a post, i just put it all in a video.


    More weights? Less weight? etc etc.

    The deadlift position is intentionally done with the shoulders over the bar as opposed to behind it.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    Just remember the %'s are just guidelines not rules. Thats about right though as far as speed and effort wise. Youll find as you get stronger youll start to use even less weight for speed work while still getting the same effects. Go by feel. if you feel slow stay at a lesser weight. If you are rocking the weights up put a quarter on. Just be sure to go by feel and feel fast when you do them. 2 years ago I was using 405 for speed pulls and my pull was at 715. I now use 315 to 365 and pull 750 so be sure to listen to your body.

    Speed looks good bro... As scott stated, go by feel. I use 55-60% of my raw 1rm 8x3. I generally use bands instead of chains though, but as w/ the chains all that is factored in the % of weight being used...
