Madcows 5x5

I'm confused on the progression of madcow 5x5. Currently for my heaviest set of deadlifts i'll be doing 395x5 and for every week on out i'll be increasing 10 pounds. Is that possible? I'm going to follow the program as written, but it just seems like a big jump every week. Are you able to increase...

Making Weight

Hi all! New powerlifter here. I was just curious about making weight. I usually sit between 135-145. It does fluctuate a bit, depending on the time of the month and what not. I'm not looking to really cut weight or anything, but I do know these numbers sit in two different weight classes 63kg...

Talking Water Cut Story

Personal story to share and a serious question. Question first, how hard can you water cut for a powerlifting meet and still be competitive? Now for my high school story. So, a barely muscled 25%bf teenager, me, asked the coach "hey, would it be fine if I cut for a lower weight class?". Being a...

Do People only compete Raw these days?

So I've been out of the game for 17 years. Back then, everyone competed in bench shirts and squat suits. Now it seems from looking at results that pretty much eveyrone competes raw. Is this the case?

Silent Mike/Omar/Bart Kizen Powerlifting Program

I've acquired the 12 Week Peaking Program + Silent Mike's Infinite Off Season Program. The off season program has me doing Barbell Rows and Block Pulls one day, and the day after you should do Lat Pulldowns. What do you think about it? Isn't it counter-productive? Other than that the program...

Gym strength vs manual labourer strength

Hey guys, Figured this would be the best place for this question as it relates to strength. I'm by no means strong by powerlifter standards but for a guy who's always been a bit of a beanpole I'm not doing bad. With less than two years training (well, one serious year really) I can squat...

How to set up for long term strength gains?

To start, I haven't lifted consistently now for about 5 years. I overcame a back injury from football my sophomore year of high school, then reinjured my back while in the Marine Corps. That being said, after two years of rehab I've been cleared to put weight on the bar and continue as normal. ...

Deadlift strength while focusing on hypertrophy

Hi Powerlifting folks, venturing into this side of the forum where I've never been. I typically train mainly for hypertrophy but I'm looking to focus a bit of my attention towards improving my deadlift numbers.

531 and weight loss

to cut to the chase my question is this. i plan on running 531 for a while. since 531 starts out with low(er) weight and builds on steady small progress. would losing .5-1lb a week for the first 2 or 3 cycles impact strength gains much? i plan on doing some circuit training after the main lifts as...
