Switching to 4inch All Around PL Belt

Ive always used a leather Valeo belt which is 4 inches in the back and in the front comes to like 2 or 3 inches. Ive recently been given a 4inch powerlifting belt. I find it extremely uncomfortable in the front - especially where the loop is where the belt goes underneath after it is buckled. It...

Inner hip/groin popping at bottom of squat, re-occuring injury

So I have had this issue with my squat and hips for the past 6 months or so. Beginning of the year, I was doing 300 for 3 sets of 5.. Fast forward a couple months and I have started cutting weight, probably 10 lbs down and still going down more. One workout when I was squatting, my inner hip around...

Training Strictly For Deadlift?

Serious question, sort of. I don't really care about squat or bench all that much (squat causes me physical pain due to femoral acetabular impingement syndrome ), and would like to max out my deadlift as much as possible. I realize there will be some carry over from squat to deadlift, but i'd be...

Front angle isn't the best to judge things but best I could do. I think I am hitting depth on these but from the front it does look iffy - although happy for anyone to disagree and tell me they're as high as Dave Hoff. nwktOyGxPUI

Question Deadlift frequency

hi, I had a question regarding how often to deadlift. I have seen here, and heard in real life many times that full deadlifts should not be done too often. I still new to things in terms of the wight I lift and have been on a linear progression 5x5 very similar to the Starr/Madcow2. Currently I...

Homemade Deadlift Platform with Band Attachments

I made this platform since I will be deadlifting at home from now on. The gym I workout at has solid bars, but they are getting bent fairly quickly. As with most gyms, rumors spread, and things go on the chopping block. If deads get banned, I don't want to be scrambling for a new gym, so I decided...

is it odd for paused bench to feel easier/be stronger than tng bench?

idk, i guess because i can really get tension in my lats from the pause the weight just explodes up. TnG only my pushing muscles work and it feels tougher and more fidgety from the lack of tightness. i also sink the bar into my chest if that changes anything

I've spent a few hours looking at 24" wrist wraps for my first pair. I've come down to these three (The sig gold, the inzer z, and the inzer gripper). It's been a bit difficult finding information comparing these. Any thoughts? Also open to other recommendations; don't need them until next week.

Poll Poll: Cause of the round back deadlift.

It seems there are two schools of thought regarding the round back deadlift. 1. Glutes and hams are weak, causing the spinal erectors to overcompensate by rounding at the start of the pull, then contracting concentrically rather than isometrically. 2. Spinal erectors are too weak to maintain...
