How to guage if Im an Intermediate/Advanced lifter?

I've been strength training for more than a year now and looking at more advanced squat/lifting programs.

Miss strongman training so much :(

Currently enrolled at North Texas and had to leave my awesome strongman gym at home. Spent the last 5 months ironing out muscle imbalances and doing a little powerlifting. I know my strength gains would be 100x better if I had some logs to clean and press or some sandbags to carry. So much better...

Strange oblique sensation while squatting

When I'm squatting near my limit I often get a sensation in my obliques that is somewhat like small rubber band snaps or tiny electric shocks. It's not painful just a little disconcerting. Does anyone else get this? Does anyone know what it is? Should I be concerned at all? Thanks!

Rep question when powerlifting

6 weeks ago, I started a powerlifting program with a 4day split. Bench/squat/speed chest/deadlift. Now I'm definitely stronger on my heavy chest day as I am doing low rep sets of weights that I couldn't do at all before. However on speed chest day, comparing week 1 to my just completed week 6...

Squat Depth Issue

Hi, I'm 5'11, with pretty long legs. I am not particularly flexible, and I also feel like I have a longer than average quad/hamstring length compared to my knee to toe length. I'm not sure if this is the issue, but I have had a hard time breaking parallel even on relatively light weights...

Running sheiko first time

Hi, I've done a bit of research into sheiko and since it's my first time running it, most recommend 29 for the first cycle. Is it best to just run it in order 29/30/31/32 or is there a better order to run it as a first timer. Thanks

Wrist wrap size?
