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?

    3 weeks out

    Have a deadlift meet 3 weeks out. Pulled 560 standing on 45s yesterday. Strength feels good off floor. Lockout could be better. Any ideas or game plan the next 2 workouts. Might just do speed pulls or rack pulls.

    I would do speed work next week then deload the last week. Deadlifts need lots of recovery before a meet.

    I agree with Scott, you are not going to build any strength in the next two weeks and training heavy would be counterproductive with regard to peaking for the meet. I would do technique/speed work next week and then rest the week prior to the meet.
