Who here also prefers to DL in Oly shoes?

Im sure I am a one in a thousand case. But I pull about 20-30 lbs more in a Oly shoe then barefoot or a low profile shoe. Anybody else experience this? Its just weird since Im adding a extra 3/4 of a inch to my ROM.

Post APF meet in October

I'm competing in my first meet in October in the APF federation. Cutting to 165. I am 190 right now. I know, I read the "your first meet" sticky and it says not to cut for your first meet but I feel best at 165. I had just gained a little weight because I had to stop squatting and doing cardio due...

Powerlifting meet weight jumps on attempts

Smolov Squats

So the base cycle is broken into 4 weeks which look like this each week : 70% 4x9 75% 5x7 80% 7x5 85% 10x3 For week 2 you add 20lbs to week 1 and week 3 you add 10lbs to week 2. My question is, is this the correct weight increment increase between weeks? I've seen several different...

Is this an appropriate breakdown of how bulgarian squat method would look like? -5 day split (mon-friday) with 2 day break (saturday-sunday) because I believe actually squatting 7 days a week under the criteria isn't wise. I can see potientially 6 days a week broken down with 4 days normal back...

Designing a program layout

So I'm wrapping up sheiko and I can honestly say it was my least enjoyable program to run. I've found upper/lower splits to get me better results but sheiko is still solid and did work just found in mentally unemployable. So now I'm picking up pieces of what I've seen works best for myself and...

Slingshot sizing

160ish lbs. Recommended size is a large but I feel that'd be too big. Anyone else used a large and how much do you weigh / how does it fit for your weight?

Belt position

I used to deadlift with a belt on, but I felt stifled by it and decided to stop using it. I went from deadlifting 275 for a single, to doing it for an easy 5 in a couple of weeks, all because I found it easier to arch my back if I'm doing it beltless. I just wanted to get it out there even though...

I just moved to Georgetown KY and I really need a gym to powerlift. I'm lifting at Toyota's gym now and powerlifting is frowned upon there.

Heart Rate Variability tracking for recovery monitoring??
