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?

    Good Mornings

    How much do you good morning in proportion to your deadlift? I have just started doing these, and my already unimpressive deadlift now looks like a record breaker in comparison.

    About 75%.

    But it will vary by individual
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    if your back is limiting your deads they will be really unimpressive

    maybe it's different because I use straps, but I can deadlift like 460, but good morning only about 185.

    Yeah I'd always known my lower back was my weak link. Grip and hamstrings have always made excellent gains so I knew that couldn't be it. My good morning is around 30% of my deadlift
    Thanks Borris, it's good to be back in the game.

    im in due to gettin back to dead lifts... hopefully the lower back holds out on it, my lower back is weak. talkin 120lb bb curl 285x3 bench, 205x8 lat pull downs and never worked my lower back ... so what exactly is good mornings? and could this neglect of not doing lower back involve it being sore and hurting for some time... well not "hurting" but a nice big sore......
