Question Knee sleeve brahs, specifically those who wear em tight.......

Got a question for you guys who like wearing your knee sleeves tight, not like 2 sizes down, but tight enough to be leaving marks after you take them off.... I've been using Mark Bell's Strong sleeves for awhile. I used them powerlifting for a good while, while usually only doing typically 1-5RM...

Lower back rounding on deadlift = weak core?

Any time I go heavy on deadlifts my lower back rounds. It's just a slight bit rounded , not too much. Can this be due to lack of core training? I also remember reading a Greg Nuckols article saying that if the DL is more than 20% higher than the squat , it's probably a core issue? My DL is at...

Conventional or Sumo

sorry in advance for my ignorance, but can you sumo deadlift in comps or just conventional? Everyone I've seen does conventional and that's all I do but I was just curious. Also, at what point does a conventional dead turn into a sumo? When the legs surpass the width of your shoulders? Thanks much.

For current or former Strongmen, what routine did you use to bulk up or get to the point you started doing Strongman lifts/events. On the Strongman 'side' I am trying to get a tire or two. Will probably get a sandbag further down the line. So I might start incorporating strongman events on the...
