Talking Workout Program Help

So, I've been lifting for the last 6 months after doing a stupid crash diet. I was super skinny fat at the end of my crash diet and wanted to add more muscle mass so I'd look more toned.

Is this feat believable?

I had a guy coach me on the bench press years ago who had done 650 raw in competition in his prime (so he is an authority on the bench press). He claims he did 675x6 on the free weight incline bench press for a warmup. Could this have really been done? I do know he was strong because even...

Phil Pfister vs Gene Rychlak in 2006

A friend of mine who’s been around the sport for a while (and goes to the pro strongman events around the country) said that in 2006, Gene Rychlak was the strongest man in the world, and without any strongman training ever was able to load a 385 pound stone and easily pull a fire truck. And that if...

There are bench only, and "night of the living deadlift" and even push pull meets but what about squat only meets? Are there squat specialists or do all squatters just do everything?
