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?

    Looks fine to me with the exception of a few things. You tend to lean a bit forward before you start your first pull. I know not everyone is willing to get flat shoes to deadlift in (Chucks cost $40) but, at least try to spread the floor with your feet and keep the pressure towards your heels.

    Get behind the bar more off the start. You are making that 1st pull a lot harder then it needs to be. Also, your foot pressure is all over the place. Ditch the sneakers, and either pull w/o shoes, or in a flat soled shoe

    Plenty fast, lower back looks solid. I'll echo what the other guys say, get some flat shoes.

    I wear deadlifting shoes, which're basically plymsoles with flat soles, cost me about 10, work fine.

    With the way you were bouncing about before you started, I expected a lot worse.

    Haha I know, I rarely ever do it it just kinda helps me with momentum on that first rep. I really like the take my time to setup, though.
