One Handed Noob

So my only hand capable of lifting weights is my right. Won't get into details, but a gun went bomb and took most my left hand with it. So yea i'm pretty much limited to my right hand only. I've always admired strongmen, and their ability to do what they do. I've never took my health seriously...

Help! Bad squat form and need advice from Powerlifters/weightlifters!

I have this weird tilt to the side on my lower back on the concentric portion of the squat. I squat high bar and basically ATG. I will try to post a video on the future. Could the lower back/glute tilt be due to a tight muscle, musclar/strength imbalance?

Are my goals realistic?

I'm a 33/yo guy, 6'2'' 215. I've been doing strongman/powerlifting for about 3 years. I bulked from 200 to 270, cut back down to 240 and hit 535 on my DL. I cut down to 215 and lost 60-70 lbs off my deadlift. At 240 I hit 375 squat, 535 dl, and 265 bench. I have spinal stenosis in my spine in...

What are your favorite Oly lifting exercises?

Aside from snatch and C&J, of course. I've seen Oly lifters working out and they do powercleans, hang cleans, overhead squats, etc. I'd like to incorporate some of these into my routine.

bastard 531 (AMRAP first)
