Do you need to squat down fully on the sumo deadlift?

Hey! So I originally used to pull sumo similar to the guy in this video. I could pull much more like this and it felt a lot better but was told that it's not a proper sumo deadlift as I'm not squatting all the way down. Any advice to whether this guy is pulling wrong or it's completely fine and I...

Why is my Bench/OHP so weak?

Hey guys I'm pretty curious on why my overhead press and bench press are so weak. I've been on a bulk for 2 months now and all my lifts went up except for my Bench and OHP I'm thinking that maybe my shoulders are the weak as my chest is probably my best body part. Anything that can help me? Thanks...

What belt do you fellas recommend for times when you go through a cutting and bulking phase? I've always had my EFTS single prong belt. I got it back when I was around 225-230lbs. I've been on a cut for several months now and the belt is pretty loose on me now seeing as I dropped to 190lbs...

Hypothetical bench press question

This question will sound absolutely ridiculous, but can someone with these measurements (reflecting of their size and frame) ever break the raw bench press record (738.5)? This does not account for work ethic and all of that, in just curious if some on here believe that frame size is a limitation ...

How long does it take to return to previous strength levels? I have been working like a mad man and I am about 90ish percent to where I was after 6 mths. I did 10 weeks physical therapy and been full go training wise for the last 3 mths. It feels like the recovery road is taking forever.

Bench Press Hack

My bench press has stalled for a while now and a couple months ago I started using an arch/tightening my back while benching which has been a major help. The big problem is if you lift at a commercial gym or a gym that has the slippery benches, it is almost impossible to maintain that tightness. I...

Average or Strong for 19 years old?

I currently weigh 135 pounds and I’m 29 years old. I was wondering that for me only weighing 135 pounds and max bench is 225 if that’s average or just really strong for my size? Some PRS - 205 for 2, 195 for 3, 185 for 8, and 135 for 25 reps. I have proof of 205 for 2 on my instagram at cole_0chill.
