Weak Squat/STRONG Bench?

I'm not entirely sure why, but I've noticed recently that I struggle to gain strength with anything lower body related like squats, even though I used to not train legs as intensely as my bench, but my bench is insanely strong for my bodyweight/age... I'm just wondering why because I've heard that...

I want to be a powerlifter so bad, even though I am still dealing with a few nagging injuries. I am not at all confident that I will succeed. But I want this SO bad, that I have to keep trying. I can't turn back; I'm stuck on this path. The only way I can be successful is to believe that my...

Can cracking joints weaken your strength?

From studies cracking knuckles can weaken your strength. But does the same goes for cracking the shoulders, neck and back? I accidentally cracked one shoulder. The shoulder feels more mobile but fear I might not get the strength though that is kind of dumb to think that since that would be a...

Weightlifting induced brain fog

hello everyone. I know there are similar threads all over the forum, but still I want to post a new thread on this. Every time I do excises like squats or bar pushing, I will experience this brain fog like 3 or 4 hours later. This will last for 3-4 days. My first two years in gym works fine....

Light Weights vs Heavy Weights

Most powerlifters lift heavy weights in low reps but don't look like they lift. Most bodybuilders lift light weights in high reps and look like they lift. So wouldn't that mean lifting light weights in high reps is optimal for looking jacked?

Why Do You Prefer Powerlifting Over Bodybuilding?

When most powerlifters don't even look like they lift. At least bodybuilders look like they lift. When are you ever going to lift a 500 lb object from the ground in the real world?
