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?

    I dont have a set routine that I use for deadlifts yet. I plan on cycling low pin pulls, defecit pulls and maybe some bands for ME work. For assistance I do lunges, 1 arm rows, and RDLs.
