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?

    Form is good except your ass comes up slightly before you pull and you are essentially stiff-legging your later reps. That's fine because you are using relatively light weight but once you finally do get heavier weights you will probably want to keep your ass down and reset after each rep.

    Those aren't deadlifts. When doing a deadlift, each rep should be deweighted to the floor. It's called a deadlift because the weight is "dead" on the floor.

    hmmmmmmmmm...wrong

    There is nothing wrong with constant motion. He's not bouncing the weight.

    I'd say that he was doing SLDLs for most of those reps. If he was using 450mm plates, they would hit the ground before he bends his knees. And his ass comes up too fast.

    A lift in weightlifting in which the weight is lifted from the floor to the level of the hips and then lowered by controlled effort to the floor.

    I never let the weight hit the ground when I deadlift, it floats right above it as I switch from lowering to pulling, but it never touches/bounces. To each his own, as long as you're making gains.

    I woulden't say perfect just because there is always room for improvement in everything. I agree you could drop your ass a bit more, use more leg drive. Back is nice and straight. Lock outs look strong, great pulls. Your form is really good, little risk of injury. Keep up the strong efforts bro!

    So you learn your lifting by the dictionary. I guess my 10 years of experience is wrong because a dictionary says so...

    Those would be Romanian Deadlifts, then.

    Overall I think it is solid..
    Squat = Not enough
    DL = Not enough
    Bench = Not enough

    Big 3 = Not enough

    What would you call them, bub?

    They're a variation of the deadlift so they're still called a deadlift. Whether you add "Romanian" or "stiff leg" in front of it, they're still deadlifts.

    Continue this needless trolling and you'll be banned.

    Woulden't the deciding variable be whether or not your ass drops and leg drive is incorperated at the bottom of the lift, not if the weight touches/bounces off the floor?

    With Romanian Deadlifts the bar does not touch the floor. With all other variations of the deadlift the bar should touch the floor between reps. Here's a good article explaining Romanian Deadlifts and SLDL's: http://www.t-nation.com/findArticle....icle=250heavy2
