Big Belly and weightlifting shoes

What are some critical assistances for the "core" that you guys do?

I hear many conflicting things about this. I have aggravated my low back (yeah yeah I know) not just because of some bad form (certainly a big factor) itself but more so because the bad form trained my body to just use my lower back muscles exclusively almost during the squat/deadlift, such that...

Foam Roller or PVC pipe?

My Foam Roller is just about worn down and I don't know if I should get another one (high density black) or just go for some PVC pipe? The PVC pipe at 6" diameter is going to be about 15$ extra but I'm guessing I won't have to buy one ever again, right? Thoughts?

Bands or Chains for Paused Bench Press?

ultimate strength progression pattern and genetic potential

So obviously there is no ultimate progression pattern for every individual. It seems SS, madcow/bill starr 5x5, and 5/3/1 is the basic pattern and each just represents a different progression scheme in terms of daily/weekly/monthly and one should follow this pattern for life, but are there any...
