The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    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?

    2) does sumo stance qualify for this?
    3) i have here a clip from sept 2006 of me sumo deadlifting... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JG-cGf6qQ0o

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

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    The only way to truely eliminate Bouncing is to eliminate the Rebound effect too. In others, the lifter has to reset. The easiest way to make the lifter reset is to release the grip, stand up and then reset and do their next DL. Otherwise, you are going to get agruements back-n-forth. Like depth on squats agruement.

    In strongman competitions they do this with a judge... someone who waits until the bar is dead and the lifter has limited rebound.. usually about 2-3 secs.

    Since there are no judges, the easiest way is to stand up between reps.

    I think it should be 315 lbs instead of 365 lbs. I would like to compete but there is no way I am going to rep out much with 365 lbs. If it was 315 lbs, I could do 10-15 reps. Thanks!

    What about two weight classes or something. I guess even with 315 I wouldn't be able to do it, but I would like to try something. I did just start dead lifting and I'm on Bill Starr, so maybe by April I can do much more. Even small guys like me like to try too.

    Im for 315!

    Ill try this when my hands heal up.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    Guys, it has already been decided. Just do 365 or start another challenge.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    So what was the poll in the other thread for, since the votes obviously didn't count for anything? Meh, oh well...I should quit whining and get to getting my numbers up so I can at least get my name on the board.
