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?

    Need deadlift help/info.

    I added deadlift to my routine about a week ago after a year and half of being a dumbass and never doing it. I'm on a 5 day split and doing barbell deadlift 4x6, and its going great except that my upper legs/ass get very sore and I'm afraid that doing squats on leg day, which is as far as possible from back day in my split, will be overworking. Should I trade off the lifts, as in doing squat on one split, deadlift the next, or is there a type of deadlift I should be doing to not make the legs so sore? Help much appreciated.

    Yes, as you become more proficient at the DL, you'll start feeling it a lot more in your back.

    :withstupi DLs will always hit your hams hard if done correctley. Another option though might be rack pulls. They require very little work from your hams, and a ton from your back.
