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?

    Barely missed 405 on the DL...

    Last night I had one of the best workouts of my life starting with DL, I figured I would try to pull 405. I decided to do a bunch of singles to build up to it, went like this:
    All of those were seriously very easy.
    Then I tried 405.
    My friend told me my legs got straight too early in the lift and I was basically pulling all with my back, setting myself up for an injury. Luckily the two times a attempted It I didn't get hurt but my back was crushed. The second attemp was better then the 1st, I was about 90% and I just gave up. I know I can do it, I will attempt it either next week or the week after.

    Nice man. I'll be yankin 4 plates the next time I do em. Last time I hit 395 and went for the 405 but could only budge it a few inches. I think puttin 4 plates on anything just sounds like a lot of weight so it's impressive no matter how big or small you are. Good luck with it.

    Ya, it's kind of a mental thing as well, it just looks intimidating.
    That's a good lift tho, good luck to you too.

    Dont max to often, if you are seeking muscle than it may not the best way to build it. Doing 6-8 reps is best for hypertrophy

    Hitting 4 plates is a GOOD feeling. It's definitely a milestone, sort of the next level.
