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?

    Squat vs. Deadlift form

    Would appreciate if anyone could elucidate for me. I've been kind of neglecting (as in barely doing) these Squat & deadlift b/c I'm not too sure I understand the forms.

    It seems to me that you keep your back + hips + butt in about the same exact positions for both of these lifts; the only main difference being that w/ squat you have the bar on your back, whereas in deadlift the bar is in front of you. (oh and that you also don't go as deep down for the deadlift)

    If I'm way off plz let me know the differences. If I understand them better I might start doing them eventually

    While squatting, your back is in an arch the whole time.

    While deadlifting, you bring your back into an arch and you don't need to shoot your ass as far out.

    Ummm... Your back should always be in a arch when deadlifting also.

    And why wouldn't you "shoot your ass out" as far on a deadlift?
