The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    405 deadlift @ 179.1

    Video


    A victory for me. After doing sumo deadlifts 5 weeks prior to this, told myself that today was the day of the proving and just moved weight today. My back feels great after that pull, but if I want to pull any more than that, I'm gonna invest in a belt (any suggestions?)

    Really happy to see this number so soon.

    Check my journal for the full session.

    Comments/critique are always appreciated.

    Awesome job, it looked like you even had a little more in you. I checked out the journal too, I bet if you didn't pull 365x6x2 before you pulled 405 you could have pulled more.

    Keep it up, you'll be putting up 5 plates in no time.

    Much better than I anticipated with the set up. I was expecting a horrible modified sumo with a bar roll.

    Thanks Cards! Even though I wanted to get the 1RM in, I wanted to keep the integrity of my structure still and lift what I need to lift.
    I was surprised how well I sustained grip today after doing all those lifts traditional and strapless. Chalk really does make a difference. I used a tip from Hulk and I'm sure that attributed to the success of the lift. Felt good.

    Joey: yeah, I wanted to move away from sumo, wasn't really feeling the set up when I first started the routine. I know the load is more on hips in sumo and better leverage, but I wanted it to be a conventional lift. Alas, I think I might just finish off this cycle with sumos to retain the integrity of my set-up...for now. And ya, figured I'd just walk up to the bar, feel the steel, and pull.
