    Where in Australia are you? Aus is just about one of the most happening places in powerlifting right now. It's just about to be the PL mecca of the world with GPA...

    It might be good to mention the 2 hour weigh-in in the title. The whole water manipulation thing has been discussed a lot here--in the context of a 24 hour weigh in. That always seems to...

    That makes sense--I know gyms can be idiosyncratic about this sort of thing. I had a gym that let me do anything except leave my bag behind the power rack, against the wall. The only way it would be...

    I’m not sure why you can’t use bands or boards in a commercial gym. I’ve done all of these in a commercial gym without problem, and I don’t have any workout partners 99% of the time.

    Good to hear from you in this thread. I might have to try the above approach just for fun sometime--it looks quite sustainable--not too heavy.

    You're tired. I haven't had much luck DLing more than once a week, but that's just me.

    It's not a bad idea to train deadlifts after squats, especially for newbies, just so you aren't super...

    For most average gym goers, the concept of spotting is fairly difficult to grasp (no pun intended).

    Haha, I did something very similar on my last deadlift at a meet a while back. I've never fainted before, so it was pretty bizzare. What did yours feel like?

    I think implicit in this question is the assumption that if the answer is yes, then it's a good idea to go ahead and start training bench every day.

    Most PLers aren't pulling 8+ reps on deadlifts that often anyway. The other day I did 405x12 beltless for funsies and I think that was the first time I'd gone over 8 reps in maybe 5 years, hah.

    I have had experience with both Smolov for front and back squats separately. I'll say this:

    No, I absolutely agree, it's just that the OP seems like a youngin' himself--started lifting at 19 and just did his first comp, so I'm assuming by "kids" he means people even younger than himself......
