My Second Meet

Yesterday I competed for the second time (first meet info is in my sig). This was exactly 5 months from my last meet, which I feel was a good length of time between the two competitions. For this meet, I had cut down from the 93kg class to the 83kg/183kg class. Weighins were at 11am and the meet...

Hi all, Can you please provide some powerlifting program recommendations for an intermediate lifter? I am 160lbs b/w, 425dl, 385sq, 215bp. My only preference is that I would like to avoid a program that has front squat as one of the main lifts, or provides the ability to swap it out. ...

Does Running After Lifting Ruin Your Workout?

I'm considering doing some running, mainly easy paced for 15-25 minutes, after strength training (3x per week, full body, alternate press/bench, 1x front squat, 1x deadlift, 1x pistol squat, pull-ups or rows superset with pressing). I'm considering this to be time efficient, to give myself three...

Maintaining strength whilst cutting

I know this is probably a broken record question, however... I've been lifting for 4 months and have gotten my deadlift to 450 @ 195 lbs. I will probably cut to 185-180, will this affect that lift by much? Thank you for the help.

When do you do your deadlift variations?

I'm on madcow 5x5 right now. It only has deadlifts the middle day. When should I be doing variations? I want to deficits and dynamic effort sets for bar speed which is my biggest problem.

Replacing conventional deadlifts entirely with deficits?

I'm on madcow 5x5 making steady gains for a couple months now. But in my lifting career I have always been plagued by horrific bar speed on my deadlifts. Would it benefit me to entirely switch to deficits for a while? Heres a set from a while ago. It was a 5rm PR at the time. o_26BsmQwjQ
