Unhappy Shoulder bursitis, Can it go away?

Feedback on my squat PR This was 380lb for 2. Recent changes include - Setup with straight back, I was arching slightly and losing tightness at depth - overhand grip and widened grip. This was due to elbow pain, and helped for a time. - my hips are getting looser, so it is easier to hit depth ...

No Bench Press progression on Starting Strength

I did SS for roughly 4 month now. While my squat is going up fine, I am not making any progress on the bench press. My best was 140lbs x 5 x 3. When I increased to 143, I failed several times and did a deload. Now I don't even manage 5 x 3 with 140. I switched to benching twice per week (monday...

Big Strength Disparity???

I started lifting about four months ago and noticed that the differences between my three lifts were quite strange compared to most people. Currently, I can deadlift 385 lb, while my other lifts sag quite a bit... My bench RM is only 145 lb while my squat is 215 lb. Seems a bit strange for 1 lift...

How many seconds between each deadlift rep are okay?

During a set I take quite long time between each rep, it's like 8-10s. Is that too much / does it make the set too easy? I simply get problems with the breathing otherwise. I hold my breath, but also need to take 1 breath at the top, otherwise the time before a next set would be even longer. ...

Ripped the arse out of my pants while squatting

Workout was going great today. Hit military press and deads and was on a roll. I moved on to squats, light day of 4x5, and got under the bar for my 1st set and it was smooth. 2nd set I thought I heard my shorts tear a little so I racked the weight but I didn't see any problems in the mirror. ...

20 pound bench decrease

Within the last two weeks, my bench press has decreased 20 pounds which is a significant % for me because I went from hitting 185 for a double two weeks ago to failing what should have been an easy double on 175 last week to failing an attempted triple on 165 this week. Normally I would look to my...
