NO strength gains in a YEAR

Hello, I have seen no strength gains in about a year. As you can imagine, this is frustrating. I am about 6'3, and am an ectomorph. When i weighed 184, i had a 220 bench, 320 squat parallel (none of that quarter squat crap) and dead lifted 465 . I now weigh 198-201 lbs, and lift about the same....

College powerlifting

Anybody have a powerlifting club/team at their school? A few of my friends and I started one last year and we are official and everything now. We competed this past weekend at an RPS meet. Just curious if other schools have this? If not are your gyms powerlifting friendly?

SBD vs Gangsta wrist wraps

Inzer grippers are falling apart, what's the better wrap between the two in the title? Obviously SBD flexible is comparable to gangsta wraps, since the stiff ones are the most supportive. Thoughts?

One of the PTs that work in my gym came over and warned me that my back was rounding too much on the deadlift, which could cause a hernia. Couldn't get this off my mind, so I decided to film myself today (even though I lifted heavy yesterday) to see what you guys think. http: ...

Deadlift critique

Hey guys, I'd like to get a critique of my deadlift. Would this lift pass in a meet? This is 260kg (572 lbs), which is a PR for me. For some reason, the video turned out very choppy. Sorry about that. CgVIKeb0oGg Thanks!

An example of splitting up volume across the week

Hi all, quick question to make sure I'm applying things right. I know from my time on Texas Method that I need around 6,000 lbs/week volume to progress, for example (205 5x5 + 245 1x5). If I'm switching to a high-frequency program, do I basically just split the volume up evenly and go with it?...
