Sticky Thread Sticky: O35 Official Deadlift Competition Thread

Since we lost the last deadlift competition thread, it's time for a new one. Ideally we can get this stickied, and get some mod reps for the weight class winners. I'll be checking the contest regularly to update standings. Since the thread may last longer than a year, we can declare winners at...

Anyone on 5/3/1 tried this?

This week, after the last set, (where I do the required reps plus as many extras as possible) I have been dropping the weights by about 30% and then doing 2 more sets to failure.

Squats: belted vs beltless

Just wondered what other experiences were in this regard? I have had back problems in the past, all the way through growing up, something that cost me some time out of sports in my teens and 20s. It was really just the typical stuff of a tall guy with poor flexibility: tight quads meaning hips...

Recommend routine for parents

Hey, Just wondering if any of you could recommend a half decent routine for my parent's. They can't squat or deadlift due to knee problems but aside from that they are ok. I was thinking of something of like a PPL fashion, since they can't really do full body cause no squats or deadlifts. ...

I think Im officially addicted now. I started off with just trying to do cardio - and that usually involved T25 DVDs, beachbody etc and hitting a reflex bag. That got old. That got boring. Fast. The cardiologist and my primary were at odds with how I should approach this. The primary for...
