Herniated disk, don't know what to do

150's Bench Press Record

K so i have this friend that works at the Y that I go to and he said he's going to try to break the 150 lb bench press record for NATURAL competition. I'm kinda sceptical about this though because he said the record he's trying to break at that weight class is only 305 in the US and 315 in the...

How much does body weight plays a role in the amount of weight you can lift?

lets say eddie hall weighed in well above 400 pounds when he did the 500kg (1102 pounds) deadlift. and that was a one rep max. my question is, is it humanly possible for a 130 pound guy to squat 500 pounds for 5 sets of 12 with a max 2 minutes rest in between sets?

Question What Captains of Crush gripper can you close?

What CoC gripper can you close? Have you trained for it, and if so, what worked for you? I have messed around with them a few times but have never really trained with them consistently. I can close the 2.5 with a good set.
