5/3/1 and overtraining

I started the 5/3/1 program probably a few months ago. I was flying through it and settings rep PRs almost every single time and all was good. Over the past month I started to feel like I got hit by a truck, like my whole body has tendinitis or something. My deadlifts went from doing 450x10 to...

How can I increase my bench press max?

Currently my weight and height is 220 5'10 and I can bench max 250 lbs and I've done 2 sets of 3 so it's obvious I can do it for sure, I only tried this as max without a spotter and the only other weight I've done was 294 but the spotter had to help me so I imagine I'm probably some where in the...

Question regarding thumb Grip on Squat and during a meet.

Recently I've been getting a lot of pain in the wrist / occasionally in the elbow from squats when using a regular grip with thumb around the bar. Using a thumbless / thumb over grip is much more comfortable, but I heard that this grip isn't allowed in all federations. There was a thread here...
