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?

    Sumo vs. Conventional

    Hey guys,
    I was looking at the Dec. issue of USAPL, and I was wondering about something. Many people use Sumo form to get a higher deadlift, and they say sumo is also safer than conventional. I noticed that 926lbs. DL'er Andy Bolton, and 931lbs. DL'er Gary Frank both use conventional form. Gary Frank is a pretty tall dude, and the way I understood it was that taller people should use Sumo form. So my question is, what sort of characteristics determine which form is better for you. I am 5'10" and I have short arms and my legs are about 30" long. I am wondering if I should go back to Conventional form. Opinions?
