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?

    Road to 500 lb deadlift

    I'm determined to deadlift 500 lbs at less than 180 bw, shooting for 170. Generally when I deadlift, I only do sets of 1 and work up to my 1 rep max. That has been working well for a while but my progress has definitely gotten slower over the past six months. I pulled 375 the other day for my new 1 rep max. Should I start doing sets with higher reps? If so at about what weight? I checked out this little program http://www.elitefitness.com/forum/we...lp-742575.html would I benefit off that?

    I have not tried it myself, but I've seen the Ed Coad deadlift cycle recommended many times. This site even has it planned out based on your current and desired max:

    Depending on your current experience level it may take 2 10 week cycles to make the jump from 375-500.
