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?

    Sounds like I need to get lifting. Might get 2 or 3 as I sit now.

    btw, the people who wanted 365 put up a better argument as to WHY it should be 365 instead of 315, hence the reason that is the weight. good luck!

    i still say 315. 365 is a good weight but it rules out a large number of this board. I doubt many people will get more than 15 reps in this challenge so why not just keep it at 3 plates per side and let people go crazy. look at the 225 for reps. stump got 50 reps. sure that weight seems really easy, but it included alot more people and it was alot more interesting. besides, more people voted for 315 than 365.

    i'm not bitching or complaining, more just giving suggestions so there is more interest.

    April first eh?
    I'm going to take a shot at this. I know I wont win, but it is great motivation for me.
    I tried deadlifts for the first time in six months last friday and I got 315lbs for 3reps on my last set.... Hopefully I should be able to attempt 325 this week. My goal for the april fools deadline is 10 reps of 365.

    stump boy's got that endurance though, i think he could crunch out around 20 reps.

    then after that go kill a bunny and start growling

    What are the rules in terms of pausing or resetting grip between reps?

    well the rules say just NO straps, i think a belt would be fine. Sumo should qualify, its still a deadlift. your vid dude, yeah i think people would say thats bouncing. killer weight man!

    I totally agree. I tried 20 lbs above my usual yesterday and after 8-9 reps my grip was giving way before my back and legs.

    I don't think Stumpy will get to 20. He has the grip of a little girl hahahaha.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    LOL, it still makes me laugh that England invented the imperial units and we still use them and they don't.

    Anyway, even if you can't get 365 even, I'm sure you could get close. You have smaller plates don't you. Just tweak it. I don't know what sizes you got, but an example would be eight 20Kilo plates (four on each side) comes out to 352lbs. Add six 1Kilo plates (three per side) and you'd be up to 365lbs.
    But I don't know what plate sizes you have there.... so I dunno if you have 20 and 1 kilo plates

    DUDE, you're avatar always reminds me of that Pantera cd cover! Hopefully someone knows what I'm talking about. I think it's the "Vulgar display of Power" cd.

    chub - 405 double overhand is not a weak grip, thats much better than most people, you are wrong

    fuzzy - that comes out just short but maybe make it right with some locks, only fair to make it exactly 365

    Vicious - i have no idea what your talking about..think my avatar may need changing though

    If you do 165kg, it's only two pounds off so you'll be close enough. I actually think this one will be fun. The no bouncing rule is going to be hard to enforce though. Every comp I've been at that had deadlift for reps allowed it, so it's gonna be tough for me. Might have to do a dry run first.

    And are we comparing bodyweights?
