How to get back into squatting after an injury?

Hey guys, soo i used to be able to squat 405 x 3, and then i had a disc bulge at work. After lots of physio and massages, the daily pain is gone (1yr later). I squat now but going higher than 185 brings lower back pain along with it. I've had multiple people review my form and said its in check....

Smile When to deadlift while squatting 3x a week

Hey guys! My question is: When should I do deadlifts on a program where I will squat 3x a week. I'm 16 and I am currently running the smolov squat program.

Recovery secrets

What are yours? At the moment I'm wearing knee and elbow sleeves (elbow sleeves that covers from wrist to upper arm) pretty much from when I wake up to go to sleep. I'm highly sceptical of lacrosse ball massage and foam rolling. I used to do it, but I've ditched it. I find walking is more...

Your personal experience as to when to attempt a 500 bench

Last max was in June. Got 405 and it seemed kinda easy. I feel like I could probably get 425-440 now. Currently doing working sets of 375 for 5 and following a bench specialization program. Going by the 1 rep calculator, it puts me in that neighborhood, but it seems like I can push more for one...

Deadlift form check

This is a 315 single at 160lbs. My PR is 345, did it about a month ago. Since then, I haven't come close to that weight, as even 315, as you can see, comes up slow. My strength loss could be down to a change in form, maybe some of you more experienced lifters could give me a few pointers as to what...

When to start using a belt?

Ive been lifting for a couple of years and getting progressively stronger. Ive seen that some people are able to add 5-10kg to their squats or deadlifts by using a belt.

Sad about fat gain, is it fine to reduce calories and keep lean bulking?

I've gone from 90kg to 100kg in the span of 3 months, i've only been eating clean with the exception of a pizza or so once a week. I eat 5 large meals a day, get at least 40g of protein per meal and a mixture of fat and carbs for the rest. I'm guessing i'm at around 4000 calories per day and that...

Huge energy drop after doing stronglifts 5x5

Hi all I've been doing stronglifts 5x5 for 6 months now. I've had some decent gains and a small amount of weight gain (7lbs or so). But one problem I keep having with stronglifts is it completley deplinshes my energy. After the gym I dont have the energy to do anything and I've now switched...
