230kg deadlift Possibility before 17

Hey I’m 16 and I just hit a max of 200kg deadlift last weekend. The form fairly good and went up pretty fast. Now I have 15 weeks until I’m 17 and I’m aiming for a 230kg or 500 pound deadlift. Do you think that this is at all likely if I go all in train hard and eat right? Also I would show the...

Lightbulb 4x4 @85% 1RM or 6x4 @75% 1RM? [Which is better for strength?]

I was wondering for awhile now on which type of sets and reps I should go with for acquiring the most amount of strength? ...4x4 @85% 1RM or 6x4 @75% 1RM? I would be doing this ideally for my bench, squat, deadlift and shoulder press, and end with an AMRAP of @60% 1RM... I kinda liked the 6x4 more...

Cardio for recovery?

I just started stronglifts 5x5 and have a question about recovery. Could a small run, like 1-2 miles help my recovery from squats?

Extremely weak bench press compared to squat and deadlift

I am 6', roughly 182 lbs, and 20 years old. Ever since I started lifting (3.5 years ago), I made very fast progress with my squat and deadlift, but my bench has always been incredibly weak. In August 2018, my best lifts were 355 lb squat (with belt), 200 lb bench, 500 lb deadlift (with belt), I...

Julius Maddox Benches 705 for REPS.

Will we see someone with this much raw pressing power again in our lifetimes? It's absolutely unreal how quick this dude has progressed to this level in the couple years I've been following him. I would not bet against him hitting his 800# goal in a few weeks. 8eR4cBZqEtI
