Is my back rounding too much?

This is a video of my 175kg double. I know the second rep was a bit messy, I didn't take enough time to reset myself, but am I rounding my back too much on the first rep? This rounding didn't happen when I pulled 165kg and I didn't feel more pressure or strain in my lower back, but is it an...

Lost weight running sheiko.

I am currently on week 1 of #37 after running #29 and I now weigh 175 lbs after starting out at 185. My lifts are still increasing though. Is it normal for this to happen? I thought I would have been putting on weight for football, not losing it.

Is lifting super heavy guaranteed to make you huge??

So I want to start powerlifting but want a reassurance that it will be worth the effort. Does lifting super heavy guarantee a massive powerful build? As long as I eat enough to match the workouts?

Best straps that you have personally used?

Used to use a generic brand of cotton straps, great grip, but they tear apart easily, so i ordered some rogue nylon ones online and the grip is nowhere as good (maybe they take longer to break in?), but seems like theyll last a long time, i actually went back to the cotton ones for now. Started...

Training disabled powerlifter Olivia.

Been training a disabled powerlifter for a 3 weeks now. As a disabled powerlifter her lifting has been aimed exclusively at improving her bench press using a disabled bench.

Question How do powerlifters get big muscles?

I need to clear this question out of my head. If powerlifters train for strength/performance(myofibrillar hypertrophy) how do they have big bulky muscles which needs sacroplasmic hypertrophy?

Thumbs up Best way to peak for a 500lb pull in a few weeks?

I pulled 475 when i could only do 425 for 3x3. I am currently peaking for my 500lb pull, and this week will be doing 450 for 3x3, and i was thinking i would stay on triples for a few more weeks until i can do 460 for 3x3, and I think that would be a pretty safe bet for 500 because 475 + 25 = 500,...
