Squat form? 365x5

Been trying to focus hard on making it more of a fluid movement between my back and legs. I used to do a clear two part movement with what resembled a good morning (or ****ty afternoon) I meant to actually do 355x5 but I did horrific math and somehow didn't realize i put 365 on. Which I guess...

Grip Work

Do powerlifters normally do any specific grip work and what works best? My grip is my weak link right now - I went to max my deadlift for the first time (8.5 weeks in) and with 320lb on the bar it slipped right out of my hands even using chalk, I used a switch grip for the first time on my 2nd...

Hurt Lower back, should I deload?

About 3 days ago, on Thursday, I hurt my lower back deadlifting. I was doing deficit deadlifts and my lower back was still fatigued from Monday's session. As I was finishing my last set my lower back felt like it rounded and I felt a weird pain. I immediately stopped doing DLs. On Thursday and...

Any advice for increasing adductor flexibility for sumo deadlifts?

My adductor flexibility is crappy. When I'm pulling the bar in towards me and up my adductors feel tight.

Replacing conventional deadlifts entirely with deficits?

I'm on madcow 5x5 making steady gains for a couple months now. But in my lifting career I have always been plagued by horrific bar speed on my deadlifts. Would it benefit me to entirely switch to deficits for a while? Heres a set from a while ago. It was a 5rm PR at the time. o_26BsmQwjQ

Squat form check please ?

I had a bad start to this workout so the 255 looks like trash, I think all my other lifts look pretty good ( they hit parallel at least ), just wondering if anyone can spot something my untrained eyes can't.

Conventional deadlift rounding back (video)

Right now I am 95kg and 17 years old. In the video I am pulling 180-220kg, mostly 200kg for 2-5. I've got an issue with keeping my back netural.

Does Running After Lifting Ruin Your Workout?

I'm considering doing some running, mainly easy paced for 15-25 minutes, after strength training (3x per week, full body, alternate press/bench, 1x front squat, 1x deadlift, 1x pistol squat, pull-ups or rows superset with pressing). I'm considering this to be time efficient, to give myself three...

AC joint sprain: can't bench, but can I still squat?

quick synopsis: I was training for an mma fight on October 28, but a couple weeks ago, I sprained my left AC joint on my shoulder when someone slammed me in Bjj. I tried to keep training for a week, but my shoulder was not getting any better. It hurt to punch, clinch, or bench press. So now I...

Hitting wall in bench

Little backstory: I've been a long proponent of the 5x5, all my main lifts are based on a simple 5x5 routine. I'm currently about 215lbs and benching an all time high in my 5x5 of 330, but the last month has been hit or miss. I'm sure it's to be expected at this point, but here's what happened:...

Question I'm 5 ft 4, weigh 154 lbs, & my strict OHP is 205lbs. Is that a decent press?

I was 148lbs when i pressed 205lb on Aug 31, of this year. Just to add- my deadlift and squat are both around 255. They should be higher but i'm content with those numbers for now. I have videos of myself with 205 x 1, and 185 x 3. I can post, depending on feedback.
