    Way too much weight on the squats. You're doing less than half a full range of motion.

    I like to stretch a band across the squat rack so I know when my butt touches it I am at a consistent depth just below parallel. Before that I was kidding myself about hitting parallel on heavier...

    With your lifts where they are, I'd probably just stay in the 5x5 range on all days. You'll probably benefit more from the neural programming of the 5x5 than you will from periodizing anything at...

    I knew a guy with one really tiny arm (birth defect). It was a third the size of his other arm, and had only two fingers plus a thumb. But he had a functional grip on it, so he trained lots of...

    Drop the weight back. You're lifting more than you can handle safely.

    Way more back rounding than you want mate, don't think that's safe. It was especially bad on the concentric (where you are most at risk).

    You'll stay in ketosis (more or less) because, as he says, the carbs will go to refill muscle and liver glycogen. This takes priority over energy metabolism, which will still be coming from fat. ...
