Body weight recommendation for strength goal

Honestly, how many of you guys have joint issues?

Im thinking of getting into competing. Although i love hunting and fishing and want to be able to hike through the mountains when im 70 and dont want to be crippled. I know 1 powerlifter and his joints are completely shot. Is this commom? Or is arthritis more related to injury than heavy lifting?

Any powerlifting tennis players out there?

Weird combination, i know. My question is, if there is anymore of us out there, is how does tennis affect your training? Do you change your programming/workouts/recovery techniques? Its hard to focus all your energy on powerlifting when you are playing two hours of tennis 5-6x a week.

The Best F#cking 12 weeks of powerlifting you're going to have cast iron strength

Recently ran across the program stated in the title on cast iron strength, and thought I might give it a go. I had never heard of this program until I found it, and was wondering if anyone had ran it before. If so, what did you think of it and is it a good program? Thanks!

How to make lift progress as "experienced" lifter with bad schedule?

Totals currently are S/D/B ~400/500/300 Working 60-70 hours/ week. At least 1 day of which I'm typically up over 24 hours straight for work. I've made my way back up to those numbers with a couple months of relatively consistent lifting, but in the past, this is where I tend to stall or get...

531 and weight loss

to cut to the chase my question is this. i plan on running 531 for a while. since 531 starts out with low(er) weight and builds on steady small progress. would losing .5-1lb a week for the first 2 or 3 cycles impact strength gains much? i plan on doing some circuit training after the main lifts as...

Madcows 5x5

I'm confused on the progression of madcow 5x5. Currently for my heaviest set of deadlifts i'll be doing 395x5 and for every week on out i'll be increasing 10 pounds. Is that possible? I'm going to follow the program as written, but it just seems like a big jump every week. Are you able to increase...

Personal story to share and a serious question. Question first, how hard can you water cut for a powerlifting meet and still be competitive? Now for my high school story. So, a barely muscled 25%bf teenager, me, asked the coach "hey, would it be fine if I cut for a lower weight class?". Being a...

Do People only compete Raw these days?

So I've been out of the game for 17 years. Back then, everyone competed in bench shirts and squat suits. Now it seems from looking at results that pretty much eveyrone competes raw. Is this the case?

To start, I haven't lifted consistently now for about 5 years. I overcame a back injury from football my sophomore year of high school, then reinjured my back while in the Marine Corps. That being said, after two years of rehab I've been cleared to put weight on the bar and continue as normal. ...
