The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Deadlifts vs everything else

    I'm only 4 weeks into a program and i'm finding that the Deadlifts cause my lower back to get so tight that i can't do anything else i liked doing.... no running, soccer, squash !!

    Anyone else struggle to recover from DL ?? any advice ??

    That happened to me at first - I used to get extreme lower back pump. I found as I got more used to it I get it less and less. Only time I tend to get it now is if I completely forget to use my legs and basically SLDL the weight.

    You are probably putting too much pressure on your lower back try putting a vid up?

    I was the same until I smashed the 45 degree back raises for a fair while, now I dont notice it often.

    Could be form like Kiff said.
    Squat briefs only 625 @ 210
    Bench geared 525 @ 210
    Deadlift geared 650 @ 220

    Could be a form issue. Post a video if possible. What sets/reps are you doing?
