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?

    Very impressive, almost 4X BW conventional and raw.

    This pull and Pozdeev's recent 881 at 227 lbs are pretty unreal. Would be amazing to see someone take a swing at Coan's 902 at 220 or Fedorenko's 893 at 242.

    What makes it so impressive is it in conventional, not sumo. Well, it would have been crazy impressive either way, but more so because it was conventional.

    This interests me, Chris. Do smaller guys at this level tend to pull more Sumo style?

    Really? I feel like most of the top tier dead lifters pull conventional. I agree there's more guys in the 600 - 700 range that pull sumo, but look at guys like Benny, Andy, Konstantinovs, Koklyaev, etc; they all pull conventional.

    True, the thing that made me think 'sumo' was that he lifts in the 220's. A lot of the lifters who have posted big numbers in this weight range recently have pulled sumo - Dan Green, Chris Duffin, Alex Vyshnytskyy, etc.

    What Tom said. Most of the big pullers at the lighter body weights pull sumo.
