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 - starting position question

    Using something like Andy Bolton's 457.5kg deadlift as reference here:

    Video


    Is that a good distance to have your butt off the ground before you start? I tend to start with my butt quite a bit lower and then drive with my legs throughout the lift. Is it more efficient doing it the way Andy does it here, with the legs not even being very bent at starting position? Or is it different for everyone? I just want to be able to deadlift the most weight possible haha.
