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 feel like i got robbed (good lift or bad lift)

    I just competed in a smaller meet this weekend, and I was running away with it, but i feel like i was cheated from my 2nd and 3rd deadlift. I dont see anything wrong with the lift to earn 3 reds. Maybe i am crazy but i would like a little feedback. thanks

    Your knees lock and then unlock - reds. This is standard judging.

    Next time just ask the judges

    Don't lean so far back. When you do that, your knees unlock. You only have to stand upright.

    Can't unlock knees and rest the bar on your quads. Red lights are the correct call. Ask the judges after you get even 1 red light next time and see what the red light was for, and definitely whenever you get 2 or more reds on a lift that you complete, so you don't make the same mistake on another attempt. Obviously the weight was no problem.
    Best competition lifts:
    650lbs. raw squat
    441lbs. raw bench
    580lbs. raw deadlift
    1650lbs. raw total

    Thanks for the advise, they said something about the lock and unlock, and at the time i could not understand what they were talking
    about. I have deadlifted raw and this was the first equipped meet I have done, and I did not feel like I changed anything with my form. Which hasent been an issue till now. I guess it might have changed the way i pull enough to throw me off. Thanks again!
