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?

    Grip Strength - Pinky strength

    I was reading an article which stated that up to 75% of yu grip strength is derived from ur pinky, which can be problematic for some because it is a commoon injury to break the pinky finger.

    I guess that to some extent this is true, as I notice how my grip when statically holding Dumbells, will always peel away from the pinky and once that happens then everything goes pear shaped.

    Just thought this was interesting.

    I intend to do some intensive grip strengthening over the next month or two since it is a problem for me with deadlifting where I need to use straps to get into any serious weight.

    I guess that's one way of saying that your are only as strong as your weakest link.
