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?

    My greatest gain yet

    When I started WBB1 about 2 monthes ago I was deadlifting the bar. Now I just deadlifted 8 moderately easy reps of 150!
    When I started deadlifting I think I had the strength to go higher, but I felt as if my stabilizer muscles were to weak to do it.

    These numbers are starting to look good
    Next time im going to try and hit for 6 reps of 170!

    That's the greatness of the deadlift. As you get more confident about your form, the numbers just skyrocket.

    Yeh, after getting the form down my lifts just kept going up. My mistake was not keeping the bar close enough. Now ive got shin marks and ive never had such succesful deadlifts.

    if you arn't already, squat your heart out. Squat atleast twice a week. you will be devistated when you hit a rock hard plateau on deadlift in a couple months, because your back outran your legs. Save yourself the frustration, and never stop squatting.

    I squat as well.
    I assure you, my legs wont go out before my back

    And where in WBB1 should I add the extra squat session?

    Oh man I cant wait til tomorrow's deads. Congrats on the pull BF. Just stick with WBB1, your legs should be getting adequate work if you're hitting them just as hard. You said it yourself, they'll be able to keep up.

    Congrats on pushing yourself further. I am having the same feeling. I have been working out for 8 years or so now and have only recently begun deadlifting with proper form. In 3 months my deadlifts went from 8X135 to 8X285. It's a fantastic feeling.

    That's awesome dude.

    Don't be surprised if you continue at this rate. In my first deadlifting session back in the third week of May this year, I was lifting 95 lbs. Last week I deadlifted 315 for a triple, for the first time. The great thing about deadlifting for me so far, has been the fact that I always feel like I'll be able to do a bit more next lifting session. It's going to be frustrating when I finally plateau because I've become quite accustomed to making progress each week. I love it.

    Now if only my squat would go up like that...

    No. The deadlift works your legs as well. Deadlifting even without squatting will ensure that your back never "outruns" your legs.
