Any specific lifts that will strengthen my hamstrings, back, and glutes?

I have a history of lower back pain and straining it 2-3 times a year :(. I love lifting but I am always scared to deadlift or clean. I was told by my lifting coach and even chiropractor that I have really tight hamstrings which lead to my back problems when lifting. I also have small and weak...

Should I widen my grip? (bench)

Everyone keeps telling me I won't bench my potential unless I widen my grip up, I don't think my grip is that close though, and when I go go wider I can't lift nearly as much. Are there people who are successful with relativity close grip benches? Heres a video of me benching _87BRsGNsDk

Unhappy Wrist wraps in Competitions

So after the past several chest days I've had severe pain in the back of my right wrist going into the back of my hand. I'm almost certain a pair of wrist wraps would fix the problem, but I didn't think you could use them when you compete since its supporting your wrists. With that being said,...

Stiff legged instead of conventional deadlifts (Candito's workouts)

Greetings I have been working out for about 1 year, making some decent progress (Squat 265lbs x 6 reps @158lbs, 174cm). My deadlift is at the same strength levels, without much difference compared to the squat. The thing is that Stiff legged deadlifts, to me, feel far more natural and I just...

Arrow Can this be considered a slight pause? Hit a 330lb bench yesterday

I realize I should've paused it a bit longer, it wasn't until after I looked at the footage that I saw the pause was quite short. It was a clean lift however, and a big PR still. VID sr3PguWy76s
