Hello everyone, I've been stuck at around 435 lbs one rep max on the deadlift for a couple of months now (amplified by being away for 3 weeks doing field research). I tried the Coan-Philippe routine out but I didn't see any real increase in strength over a 5 week period. So, my question is-...

I apologize for creating a new thread about this, but I just can't find any information anywhere. The Kumite Classic is in Pittsburgh on May 23, it's sort of like a ghetto Arnold Classic. Was curious whether anyone has or knows anyone who has competed there. Plan on competing raw in the...

Knee wraps, first time user

Never tried knee wraps before, looking to give them a shot to boost my ego on squats a bit. More confidence=more weight moved. Looked up a couple different wrapping techniques and feel the "best" method for me is crossing over the knee cap multiple times and tying it off right there as usual....

Squat form question

SBD Knee Sleeves - tight or standard fit

Flat shoes or Oly shoes for low bar squats?

I've been really indecisive about what's better -I find that in flat shoes I get a lot less lumbar rounding (butt wink) -I get the just the right amount of depth in flats compared to over shooting depth in Oly shoes -But it takes longer to position myself for the squat in the flats -the Oly...
