Lower Back Stretches for Squat/Deads

Hey guys, So I always start any leg day/deadlift day with the Limber 11 routine... which helps me a lot. But that's all I do before squats/deads. Now I warm-up first with 135x8 on squats and my lower back just seems super tight even though my legs/groin/hip is stretched out from limber 11. I...

Do any colleges have weightlifting teams?

I am a relatively good powercleaner. I have not worked on it extensively, only with football powerlifting that I am doing. I'm 17, 215, and powercleaned 280lbs this spring.

Push Press

I cannot push press to save my life. I only worked it into my program a few weeks ago because I wanted a good assistance lift for strict OHP, but the second I bend my knees to start the rep I immediately start falling forward, lose all momentum and it ruins the lift. I am push pressing 30lbs...

Terrible bench compared to other lifts (535dl/425s/255b) what do?

Hey guys, I have some long orangutan arms and a short torso. This means my bench arch is basically zero and my range of motion is massive. My bench (paused) has been stuck for a while. About year ago my best lifts were a 335 squat, a 455 deadlift, and a 255 bench. Fast forward to today and I...

Quick questions on the differences, between DUP and RTS. Besides being RPE and Rep Percentages, both these programs seem to be formulated the same way. What am I missing here?
