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?

    well it aids quite a bit of your back. our lower back, erectors, and traps are all part of your back. Are you sure your locking out at the end, a lot of people, including me, feel it a lot in the traps. then of course it also hits your glutes and hams. I think it could be on either a lower body or back day. Maybe you could even give it a day to itself

    after doing deadlift on saturday, and that's all I did, I know for me I now like to do it on it's own day since it's probably the single most demanding lift, both physically and mentally.

    your traps get worked pretty damn good in a deadlift. You may not feel it that much but it hits more of the fibres and I personally notice serious growth when DLs are a part of my routine.
