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?

    Squats for the first time!

    Well i went to the gym yesterday and finally tried squats and deadlifts, and wow they really killed. My legs are so damn sore and so is my lower back (from deadlifts?).

    But i was just wondering i didnt feel deadlifts as much in my legs as i did in my lower back, am i doing something wrong or is it just the excercise.

    Your probably doing them more like a stiff legged deadlift, chest should be high throughout the movement.

    I myself always wonder why people don't like using a lot of leg drive when Deadlifting. I find it helps. But I guess people are different.

    because i can barely squat 185 because of my knee, i find doing it my way i can still pull quite a bit of weight and it doesnt hurt my knee.

    i would think when deadlifting, you would feel it more in your back than in your legs....it is the king of back exercises.....

    Reach down between your legs and find a pair of balls. That's what it takes to lift big weights. Genetics is the weak man's excuse for why he sucks at life. Don't be that guy - RhodeHouse
