The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    They say that when your ships comes in
    The first man takes the sails
    Second takes the afterdeck
    The third: the planks and rails.

    Something struck me in the first paragraph of that article. They have 24 lifters who can squat 800+ but only 6 members that can deadlift 800+....

    I guess because most powerlifters are short?

    No, it's because they don't train the deadlift much. Also, they focus a lot on training in equipment and equipment doesn't lend itself to much improvement in the deadlift like it does the squat and bench.

    Also, the world record squat is 1142 pounds. The world record deadlift is 932 or 933 (I can't remember which). There are a lot of 800 pound squatters, much fewer 800 pound deadlifters in the world.

    Being short can help you in the deadlift as long as your arms are short.
