Four week transition program

I have my first meet this weekend after running Bill Starr 5x5 for about 14 weeks. I got good results for my squat and deadlift but pretty minimal on bench.

why can i deadlift 355 and squat only 225?!

always finishing point of the deadlift was way easier than than the starting point for me. is that a sign of relatively weak quads that lead to have this kinda gap between my squat and deadlift? thanks (squat parallel: 225 lbs, paused bench press: 225 lbs, deadlift: 355 lbs)

Belly Fat

I've been strength training now for about 3-4 months. I'm trying to tack on as much mass as possible only thing is I'm one of those people who accumulates chubb in the midsection. So I guess it's a bit of a weird issue. I want to continue packing on mass, and at the same time reduce fat around the...

Is it possible to be built for 1-2 rep maxes and 5 or more?

Its weird but I feel "better" going for a 1 or 2 rep max than 5 reps on stuff like squats and deads. I think for compounds my body responds better to heavier weight for very very low reps. For example I can squat 315 but with 275 I grind it out at the 3 or 4th rep before racking it in exhausting....

Has anyone yet invented a bench press pause timer or cheap velocity sensor

You lower the barbell to a little pad attached to your shirt, the pressure of the barbell starts the timer and then after 1-3 seconds (depending on setting) it will beep or blink a red LED and you compete the repetition. Also have they invented a velocity sensor you can attach to the barbell and...
