My Powerlifting and Strongman Gym

My area sucks for powerlifting gyms and have zero strongman gyms around. Because of this, and working shift work, I starting putting a home gym together focused around powerlifting. I started with 300lbs of weights and bar from an old crappy Weider set at my parents house. I started with junky...

Newbie Question: Front Squat problems?

So, pretty good day for squats. But ran into a bit of a snag. Part of my workout called for me to do Front Squats, which I've never done before. So, I did a quick browse online, found some short video explanations and some diagrams and decided to give it a go with just the bar. What I've found...

Something that should be stickied / in a FAQ: how high to aim for, what increments?

Hello everyone, I did my first "powerlifting style" workout at my gym.. I tested 1RM for those three, in order, benching in the power rack :) My previous 1rms were tested about 5 weeks ago, and I have noted the progress I've made on my 3x5 maxes, so I used that as a "ceiling" to aim for. ...

Adding weight to bust plateau (theory)

Hi all, first post. I've been bodybuilding since Jan 2017, (upper-lower, then switched to push-pull-legs). Strength plateau'd in July, so took a two week break. Upped cals to 3500 and got on a 5x5 and, bluntly, I inflated. I love this workout. I've been tinkering with a thought experiment and...

Recover from unknown back injury??

Back in March I hurt my back really bad. It hurt to stand for long periods of time, sit for long periods of time. Laying down helped. Decompressing my spine helped. Bending forward (flexion) put me in a world of pain. Not really sure what I did to hurt it. I'm thinking it might have been overhead...

Wendler 5/3/1 on consecutive days - programming recs

I'm starting Wendler 5/3/1 for powerlifting soon, and need some advice. My schedule only allows me to train on consecutive days (not optimal but I've made decent gains on this schedule before). What are your thoughts on the order of compounds over the 3 days? It seems pretty logical that bench...

Solution to Brain Fog from lifting heavy?

So I've noticed that after lifting heavy I cannot think as well for up to 48 hours. If I try and lift then go to class I cannot pay attention at all, and for the day or two after I lift I don't have the same attention span. It is very discouraging for me, especially because this is my last year in...
