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?

    What is the standard Deadlift?

    Hey.
    Just wondering what is the standard Deadlift the Barbell Deadlift or the Straight Leg Deadlift.
    I here of people also talking of SLDL are they talking about stiff or straight legged?


    Barbell Deadlift
    Barbell Straight Leg Deadlift
    Barbell Stiff Leg Deadlift

    If anyone can help me out that would be great cheers.

    Barbell Deadlift is the "standard" or whatever you want to call it. Straight leg and Stiff leg meanthe same thing, same excersize. Both excersizes focus on different muscles, hope this helps.

    Straight legs aren't so great. Personally, I prefer Romainians, which are similar to stiffs.

    Those look a lot less painful than SLDL's. Maybe I'll try those instead.

    For those of us who can't touch our toes, SLDLs are brutal. I haven't tried them, but I could see romanians being a lot better.

    The only difference between all of those is in the range of motion and in how much your knees bend for each. Changing those things just changes how much emphasis is placed on the lower back, hamstrings, hip flexors, and glutes.

    Sorry to hijack thread...
    I was thinking. Are all deadlift variations acceptable in PL contests?

    Im ean I dont know why people would do SLDL's instead of Conventional but who knows?
