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 frequency

    How many days per week are you guys deadlifting. Right now I am DL'ing once a week on Monday and then squatting on Friday. Is this enough or should I DL twice a week?

    I'd beat the tar out of myself deadlifting twice per week.
    Finally ELITE @ SHW..

    Single ply: 931 squat, 760 bench, 530 deadlift and 2180 total
    Multi ply: 960 squat, 770 bench, 550 deadlift and 2250 total.

    The next stop: PRO total.

    I think once a week is plenty. If you are making progress keep doing what you are doing.

    Monday: Heavy Squat
    Wed: Deadlift variants (RDLS, Stiff leg sumos, conventional band pulls, pulls off blocks) Try for competition style PR every 6 weeks
    Friday: Light squat with special bar (ssb, cambered bar, front squat harness)

    Most weeks I deadlift twice. It's rarely a competition style deadlift though. I use a lot of deadlift variants and reps. There's a huge difference between a competition style max and SLDL for sets of 5.

    i pull full range of motion every week on my speed days and every other week on heavy days. the weeks i don't pull full range of motion on my heavy day i pull from pins just below my knees. and i change up my stance once or twice a month from sumo to conventional to make my muscles work differently.
    Impossible is an option, not a fact.
