High bar squat with strong forward lean?

Currently I am doing high bar squats, because I slightly hurt my shoulder from the low bar position (due to poor shoulder mobility). I recorded my squats and noticed, that besides the higher bar position it looks pretty much like my low bar squats! I'm still "sitting back" and not down, my hips...

How close to failure should you train during linear progression

In most linear progression programs for novices you increase the weights every workout. However, I hear from a lot of people (also some that are teaching linear programs like Starting Strength, however not Mark Rippetoe himself), that you should not train too close to failure and "leave 1-2 reps in...

Equipment and novice lifters rant

Hey guys, so this is probably gonna be a bit rant, but I have been recently getting annoyed by the amount of novice lifters using lifting equipment, such as bands, knee wraps, wrist wraps, etc. Seriously, yesterday, I watched a guy put on knee wraps to quarter squat 275! I feel like equipment...

There are bench only, and "night of the living deadlift" and even push pull meets but what about squat only meets? Are there squat specialists or do all squatters just do everything?

Is this feat believable?

I had a guy coach me on the bench press years ago who had done 650 raw in competition in his prime (so he is an authority on the bench press). He claims he did 675x6 on the free weight incline bench press for a warmup. Could this have really been done? I do know he was strong because even...

Hey yall, I really want to focus on getting my back strength up--I think it's really lacking relative to everything else.

Squatting nearly as much as I Dead-lift?

So lately I've been on a purely strength orientated program, combined with bulking (gone from 84-87kg). Long story short my squat has gone up to about a 150kg 1rm (30kg increase) and my conventional DL has gone up maybe 20kg to a 160kg 1rm. But my main DL the sumo has decreased, I used to have a...
