Story Time: My First Ever Powerlifting Meet!

How to fix forward lean before deadlifts?

Recently switched to sumo style after 2-3 years of conventional deadlifting, I find there's significantly less lower back pain and the movement's overall just less awkward. I think it's because of my proportion lengths. But I've noticed that before deadlifting, whether conventional or sumo, I...

Improving Squat

Any advice for building a stronger squat? My bench and deadlift aren't of a concern to me, however being 6'3, my squat feels awkward and I have trouble building strength. I have a dedicated squat day each week, for accessory work I do pause and split squats after squatting 5 heavy sets of 3-5 reps.

Anyone own a red/white/blue inzer belt?

I was debating between getting a red or red/white/blue inzer lever belt. I pulled the triggger on the red/white/blue. It’s been 2 weeeks (I suspect it’ll be another 8) since then. I’ve heard that the red white blue doesn’t look all that great. Does anyone own this color that can chime in? I...
