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?

    Today was my first day of lifting. It was a success, but I have been reading up on deadlifts for some time and want to implement them into my chest/back day. However, I have two bad knees (offically diagnosed with bilateral patella femural syndrome in both) and because of this i have not done deadlifts yet. Do they really use your knees that much to the point where I need to worry? My favorite sport to play is basketball (played for 6 years) and I have read it helps greatly for it. Anyhow, please give me feedback as it is appreciated

    I don't even feel it in my knees - squats are a different thing altogether. Of course, I don't have bad knees, so there ya go.

    Don't ask for a lighter load. Ask for a stronger back.
