Meet Day June 2nd. Questions About Training Specificity

I’m competing in a meet on June 2nd, and I was wondering how far out you guys start paused benching. If I do volume sets with pauses, I tend to get aches and pains after a while, so I was wondering if touch and go will transfer well if I do slow, controlled eccentrics. Also, the federation I am...

Has there ever been a thicker and wider human being than this guy?

His actual weight was 557 lbs at this time. He was also at his peak height of over 7'0" at this time. He's only 6'10 1/2" 396 lbs in 2018 after height loss from several surgeries. His arms must have been 26 1/2" in circumference back then. He has incredibly long arms and a 7'8" wing span, but...

Breathing on farmer's walks

Hi everyone, just tried these for the first time today, and although I do not normally post here I figured it would be the right section to ask. Basically I found it hard to stay braced for the whole walk AND take air in. I tried to take a good breath in after the turn (I walked from point A to...

Foot pronation/hip shift/valgus collapse

What mobility drills are people using as staples to avoid these issues? Let’s assume glutes are working perfectly and all cues are spot on and there’s no technical issues as such. My current regiment before I squat involves foam rolling, band hip distractions (slight FAI), monster walks with...

Phil Pfister vs Gene Rychlak in 2006

A friend of mine who’s been around the sport for a while (and goes to the pro strongman events around the country) said that in 2006, Gene Rychlak was the strongest man in the world, and without any strongman training ever was able to load a 385 pound stone and easily pull a fire truck. And that if...

Hip Flexor pain/tightness from squatting SS 5x5

I'm doing SS 5x5, on week 5 now. I have been getting some tension and tightness in my hip flexors, and am afraid that I will eventually develop tendonitis there if I don't correct any bad form right now. I'm trying not to aggravate it, so I'm spreading my stance a little further than shoulder...

Squat form check please! (high bar)

Figured you guys should know your stuff. So let me start off by saying going into this workout was pure hell! Had no sleep the night before. Had to do 10 triples @85% today. Weight is just 260 but felt way heavier. This is the 9th set so fatigue was a definite factor. I feel like I was falling...

I’ve been struggling to increase my flat bench for a few weeks now after hitting a plateau at 225x6 and the weight just feels so heavy once I get to 225.
