Deadlifts Feeling Very heavy

So I competed in a meet around a month ago and my deadlift was a PR at 385 and it moved fast. Other competitors said they thought I was good for another 40 pounds as it moved like an opener. The reason I picked that weight is because in the gym I've never done over 365. Anyways, squat and bench...

Thought this might be worthy to post here. On Saturday I was lucky and I guess prepared enough to accomplish a lifetime goal of mine by totalling 2000 along with hitting an 800+ competition deadlift. Going into the meet the only goal was to hit a 2k total however possible, so every attempt was...

Hi, I'm new here (this is my first post). I have been doing the SL 5x5 some time (2-3 months?) and now when I started to increase the weight on the bar, my upper back started hurting me.

Torn calusses

Every week it is the same thing. I tear calusses, start bleeding. Cant grab a bar for days. using rubber gloves didn't help, i used toilet paper, it only soaked up the blood. The problem is that the spot where i tear a callus feels really stingy. Anyone got any tips? Thanks.
