Poll Poll: Cardio to Cut for Strongman Meet?

So I have a strongman meet in 6 weeks. I've already dropped 10lbs from 195 to 185 and I'm looking to make weight for the 175lb division. I've dropped my 1st 10lbs by doing long bouts of LISS cardio almost every day. I don't know if I should continue to use LISS or use HIIT more (considering I lift...

Cleans and rear delts

I'm wondering if this is due to the break in form when dropping the weight from shoulder height. I have zero pain or issues with the rear delts when doing cleans. The only issue is when I basically dismount the lift by dropping weight. Lift goes smooth. No trouble racking or holding the weight...

Furniture Removal?

I've noticed that strongmen lift a lot of awkward shaped objects, so wouldn't it be a good idea to to put all of that functional strength to use by being furniture removalists? Since they get to lift heavy sh*t and get paid for it?

Heading to Tel-Aviv for business and want some recommendations for gyms that will allow me to workout as a guest. I'll be doing normal barbell movements (squat, bench, deadlift, press, cleans) so need racks and platforms. I've found a couple crossfit places, but looking for more options because in...

Natty or not?

My old classmate has been training for 3 to 4 years now and deadlifts 455 at 140 lbs. Im still working on 405 lbs. Im wondering if this type of weight is rare for his bodyweight for a natural lifter? Or is this common?

Hey guys, I fractured my pelvis during a deadlift only competition a few weeks ago and am looking for some ideas on an upper body only program. Recovery is 6-8 weeks, then will likely have to do some PT. I'm not supposed to put any weight on my left side and I use crutches. Right now I've...

Gym Recommendations in Houston, TX

I'll be in Houston in October 2018 and was wondering what the best PL gym is to train a few days. So far I have circled Texas Barbell Syndicate and Texas Strength Weightlifting Center but I am open to suggestions. Would be good to have a gym where I can get some training points too.

16 year old bench, squat, deadlift.

Hey, I’m 16 and I weight 180lb with 13% body fat and I bench 225lbx8, squat 225lbx4 and deadlift 315lbx8. And wanted to know how can I get my squats and deadlifts up because I feel like my bench is good but my deadlift and squat sucks so any help with that would help.
