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?

    funny deadlift question...guys only

    hey guys,

    got a quick serious question.

    does the bar ever hit your shlong when you are deadlifting? when i finish a rep the bar always bumps me and its annoying.

    maybe i should wear some briefs to keep everything in place.

    I guess if it hits you there, it hits you there. I try to pull it a little away from my body at the top of the movement so it doesn't do that, otherwise I'd be crushing myself.

    You must have relatively short arms (or I have long arms). The bar is low enough below my groin to where it's not a problem.

    haha...nothing to brag about.

    must be my arms are too short like guido said.

    i dont think i can swing out the weight a bit to avoid it. my wife laughs when she sees me trying to prevent it from happening.

    It's really that big of a problem? Maybe wear a cup or wear boxer-briefs?

    Arms too short? I highly doubt that. I have the same issues.. It can hurt. Ive already complained about it in my journal

    Anyways, My cousin who I work out with is about 6'2 with long arms and he faces the same trouble as I do.

    So maybe it is something to brag about

    You can do what I do though. I try to wear fairly loose pants so you can kind of put the bar underneath it. See if that helps.

    They need to invent a bar that has a dip type curve in the middle like on an EZ curl bar.

    Bar -----\/-----

    No need to tuck that way.

    You know when I first started training it always tapped my tackle but now it does not.

    Either old age is shrinking my boys or I have grooved it do I do not hit my jewels anymore.

    I used to have the issue myself.

    I think I've adjusted my form subconciously to stop hitting my junk.

    Weightlifting sucks. I just like to lift heavy things.
