    LadyLore450, please tell us you're not really going to stop lifting!

    Time under the bar does matter, but it's relative to the individual. Some people gain faster than others, some people have different biomechanics which makes some lifts harder than others, etc. ...

    You're being too hard on yourself (even if you're being sarcastic). In today's modern society, I think you'd be surprised how attractive a strong, independent woman can be.

    I just think you focus...

    Mr. Rousseau, I'm willing to bet the Steinborn squat is extremely techniqud dependent with a high chance of injury, I'd rather not. ;)

    Especially when there are multiple better options available,...

    Well, I never meant that you should lower the weight as slowly as you raise it up. But there needs to be some control there or else you're increasing your chances of injury.

    Barbell hack squats are a great move I cycle in from time to time, since you don't have any rack at all, I'd start with them, they are also very safe....

    Then you could clean a barbell or a pair...

    This, too. IMO the negative will contribute more to strength gain than boosting your ego with more reps while dropping the weight.

    This. Too many people lift more weight than they can really handle. If I can't handle the descent, I'd hesitate to feel safe doing the lift at all.

    Yeah, freeweight t-bar rows do bother my lower back a bit, it's nothing bad, just doesn't feel as comfortable as regular rows. I also don't like the way t-bar rows, due to the way the weight pulls...

    Time to strap up! I personally do deadlifts last on my back day, but it's a matter of preference. I have much more energy for them at the end of a workout whereas if I do them first I'm totally...

    It's the angle in which the weight pulls against your body since it's on a pivot behind you. I'm with you, I like the feel of t-bar rows, I have this sort of cambered bar where it's bent toward the...

    Good point, if my upper back starts to sag on a rep, as far as I'm concerned, the set is over.

    Well, I get most of what you're saying, but I can think of a thread that was posted very recently in which the OP was doing a routine with too much volume of deadlifting conventional 2x per week and...

    That seems a bit oversimplified. Most people who max several times per week on a given exercise are doing so with very low volume per workout. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I doubt most of those...

    I've always wondered about people elevating their heels during squats, isn't that really bad on the knees? It seems like any time I've tried that it hurt my knees and I stopped immediately.

    I recently was noticing this myself. I had been front quatting atg for a long time (as low as low can go) and realized my glutes were doing most of the work getting out of the hole. Even though my...

    You gotta get your conditioning up, just keep at it, rest as long as you need to between sets, you shouldn't feel like you're about to pass out. You'll get more used to it over time as long as you...
