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?

    grip SLDL

    I'm having trouble with my SLDL's. The bar keeps slipping causing me to not finish my set. Is this b/c I need gloves or b/c I am trying to lift too much weight? Anyone else have this problem and fix it?

    Get some chalk and use a mixed grip. That's what I do.

    some bars have crappy knurling on them which makes 'em hard to hold at the best of times

    assuming you are using a well-knurled bar, I think your options are:

    - work on grip (farmer's walk, shrugs, deads, etc.)
    - get a pair of straps
    - try using chalk
    - I'm not a fan of gloves but they might help too

    also, if you're using a palm-down grip with both hands you may be able to keep a better grip using mixed-grip (one palm up, one palm down)

    All of my grip problems were solved when I discovered the mixed grip.
    Too bad it doesn't work on all back exercises.

    Since I'm working on my grip, I use double-palms-down until that fails, then I quickly switch to a mixed grip.

    If you take your shoes off (or use thin-soled shoes), you shouldn't need a platform.

    Get some chalk, you'll be more than satisfied. Gloves will make it harder to grip, not easier. If you don't want chalk, get some cheap straps.

    I have done them on the ground and on a platform. I perfer standing on the ground, so i do not use the 45lb plates but use the 25's so that i am able to increase my ROM w/o standing on a platform. I think this really helps for building strength in the lower ROM.

    If you can't be a good example, at least be a terrible warning.
