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?

    Either way is fine. I use a mixed grip. One hand in, one hand out, and rotate between sets.

    It helps with grip at higher weights. If your grip is giving you problems, and your back is still ready to pull, then switch it over. For me, I like to switch it at the heaviest, but keep it regular on my higher rep sets.

    Say I was doing a deadlift workout..

    135 x 8
    205 x 8
    225 x 6
    255 x 3
    then i switch to mixed grip
    275 x 3
    300 x 3
