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?

    Deadlift bars

    When/at what weight should someone switch from a standard barbell to a deadlift bar?

    Any recommendations for a good type/brand?

    I don't think it matters about what weight you are doing. I switched to a DL bar when I discovered that all of the meets I was competing in were using them, and the change was dramatic from the cheap olympic bar I was using.

    I wanted an Okie bar, and attempted to buy one, but did not have a good experience. I contacted EliteFTS about the Texas bars, ordered it, and it arrived in 3 days. An all-around awesome bar for pulling. Not as much whip as the former, but enough.

    No need to wait. I never picked one up. I liked using a regular bar and then going to a meet and getting a big carry over from the dl bar.
