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?

    Is a deadlift of 340lbs good?

    My female friend Amy who weighs around 165lbs and is about 5 foot 6 just achieved her pb in the deadlift, hoisting 340lbs off the ground. Would you consider this an impressive feat for her?

    for the 165 bracket, the current world record (updated on 10/17/11 ) is 341.7. I would say that's pretty close to the world record...

    Edit: I don't suppose you have a video?

    ^^The Female 165 Raw WR is 518 according to PWatch.

    A clean 340 lift would put her around the 37th highest DL in the past five years in an American PLing meet. So yes, this is a good lift.

    Yep, we train a gal with very similar stats who just pulled 335 lbs in a meet (raw) after squatting 350 lbs.

    The woman you know is a very good puller.

    Definitely impressive lift for someone her size.
    I consider any improvement to any lift a feat but that is definitely a big lift.

    Thanks for that, maybe the source I posted was JRs? Not sure why the difference.
