Starting in September I really want to bust out a 405 deadlift. My latest max was 360x1 but that's probably fallen a little bit due to work and not being in the gym as much.

I recently started college and I'm now using the college gym. I've been having trouble adjusting to the barbells at this gym. The bar is thick and smooth, which is giving me trouble with my grip strength. At my home gym, the bars are standard 44 pound bars and they are easy to grip. My grip...

For the past few months i've been getting some knee pain which a physio diagnosed as due to hyperextension of my knees and said I had bilateral fat pad impingement; he gave me loads of stuff to work on and we've changed my posture so I've always got a more neutral knee position. However, the...

Question Squat lagging behind deadlift

I have been training for about a year and a half now, starting with no previous experience or any form of athleticism. Over this period, I have improved my lifts from a measly 95 pound squat to a 255 pound squat, and my 135 pound deadlift to a 385 for a double. However, that being said, I have...
