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?

    New PR

    Feeling very proud so here it is:

    Deadlifts (after squats, SLDL, and calf raises):

    10 x 185lbs
    10 x 185lbs
    5 x 255lbs
    3x 300lbs (felt good, real good).

    I don't have a stage or anything so I go down to the floor, touch lightly, and die in agony going back up.

    I do deadlifts after squats because.....no good reason. I will have to think about that some. Current split is back/bi, chest/tri, shoulders, then legs and deadlifts. I will be moving them to shoulder day, more than likely.

    I love this feeling!

    My journal is in Excel for the past year and a half. I've been debating whether or not to start a journal up here. More than likely, I will once this week is over (exams).

    Nothing wrong with doing deadlifts after squats. It is safer to do them this way than the other way around. If you have already fatigued your legs and spinal erectors from deadlifting and then put a heavy weight on top of your shoulders... Should you fail during an exercise it is easier to put or drop the bar back on the floor (deadlifting) than it is to put or drop the bar from squatting it.

    Sounds like good advice. I'll stick with my current setup.

    I personally wouldn't do either one after the other. I wouldn't even do them on the same day.

    Awesome!

    3 rep PR? God, I got my ass chewed on that one last year
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    UPDATE, 44 days later:

    September 27th, 5 x 205; 7 x 315; 2 x 365

    Still feels good! I let the weights rest completely on the floor now for one second; harder than a slight touch only. Two too many reps on 315 and possibly could have reduced the 365 from a possible three rep.

    Nice job!
    BTW should you wish to see how far you can take your deadlift I'd advise doing your squats and deadlifts (if you are not doing so already) on separate days with at least two days of rest in between them. Just a suggestion.
