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?

    Another sumo ?

    Maybe C. Mason can help. I read some where that he Chris I mean uses sort of a half sumo on deadlifts. Then I also read that Ed Coan does like something between a sumo and convential. Well does anyone know what this means, where do you place the hands and just how would do this?

    From what i've seen hands are placed a little wider then sumo grip and feet placement is right in the middle of the plates and center of the bar.

    The best way to start on these is to essentially do a conventional deadlift with your legs just outside your arms. This basically gives you a similar lift to a conventional, but without the knee-smacking problem. I find this more comfortable than conventional, and a bit stronger. (personal preference)
