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?

    BBB Deadlifts?

    Question: Can anyone see any limitations / contraindications for training deads with BBB (5 sets X 10 reps after 5/3/1)?

    Thoughts: I think I understand the general purpose/s behind BBB but wonder sometimes about its applicability to certain lifts like the deadlift, where lower volume/rep training is pervasive and often most productive.

    Additionally, is there not a point where one should not be pulling quite so much weight for reps i.e. progressed to a BBB deadlift of "X"%body weight?
