Front squat vs Back squat, which works glutes more?

It's difficult getting a definitive answer from the research I'm doing. I've read that front squats are more quad dominant but can still grow the glutes like crazy with the right technique. I'm looking for the right squats for the most growth but, if I can get good growth from front squats...

Having trouble with deadlift

Ok, I've been struggling with the deadlift lately. I started madcows 5x5 six weeks ago and have been seeing great gains. For example, my squat has gone up from 240 to 270 and bench from 165 to 190 and I'm showing no signs of slowing down. My bent over row has been kinda sucky form wise and weight...

Sumo DL starting weight? Recommended % of conventional pull/squat?

If I've never pulled sumo before, but have a conventional dead of 200 for reps, and a squat 1RM of around 200, what would an appropriate starting weight be for me to complete 2x5 sumo pulls relatively easily, not giving too much stress, and allowing me to learn the form well (obviously without...

Chest supported row hurting rib area?

After a couple weeks of consistently doing chest supported rows, I get this somewhat painful/irritating feeling in the upper ab/rib general area. Dafuq is this? Now that I think about it, I vaguely remember getting it on the same exercise a few years ago.
