The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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 idea

    I was thinking of performing my deadlifts as normal but when i up straight with the BB i was thinking of adding a shrug...

    so id lift...shrug..lower...repeat

    does it sound an ok thing to do?

    or should i split the 2 as normal

    it just seems like a waste of time to do both seperate when the 2 are screaming out to be combined.

    You wouldn't be the first one to do it, but since the deadlift already hits very well the traps, if you add shrugs that would make the traps failling before everything else.

    Well, how many sets and reps are you going to do with deadlifts versus shrugs? I would never do the same volume on deads as shrugs personally. And to do them the same workout seperate would probably bring my grip to exhaustion before I finished, so to me, the logical answer is not to do deadlifts and shrugs on the same day.

    personally I find that my traps last longer than my low back for deads

    I like to do shrugs in their own sets AFTER deads to finish killing my traps.

    It wasn't really a matter of lower back I was speaking of, just grip. Grip will fatigue tons on shrugs, and if you were deadlifting heavy it would already be pre-fatigued. But I don't use straps either, which I'm sure many here do, so maybe the grip thing isn't an issue.

    i dont use straps, id rather my grip improved since it would facilitate heavier dips and chins as well as deadlifts.

    I could not shrug my deadlift weight at the top of the movement in a smooth controlled manner.
    but my deadlift is my best lift relative to others lifts.

    I used to only do deads for traps, and I didnt even add a shrug into the end of the dead, either. IMO, if I were to throw a shrug into a heavy dead the movement of the bar might destabilize me...of course I've never tried it, so I really dont know. I never did direct work for my traps until just recently and these assholes around me wont shut the **** up about how great my traps are and ask me how many sets of shrugs I do.

    I say 'none.'

    At that point I've already left the room.

    My profile picture is about 5 years old, I'll get around to taking some progress pics eventually.
