Pause squat vs normal squat numbers

What is your pause squat compared to your normal squat? I'm testing soon and have focusing on the pause squat this training cycle. Last time I tested I hit a 415 pause squat and normal squatted 455. I just hit 405x3 back to back weeks. Hoping to hit 475!

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...

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...

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...

Angry All of my squats above 70% of my 1RM feel like RPE 8

Hey, My 1RM for the squat is 120kg (tested on my last cycle a few weeks ago); however, my program (candito) wants me to lift 90kg for 3 sets of 6. From recent experience, it is a grind to even get 3, nevermind 6. I know I won't be able to hit it for 3 sets. I know I should lower my 1RM, but...

Knee sleeves for deadlifts?

Anyone here use sleeves for deadlift? How do they affect the lift? The only reason I'm thinking of wearing them is that I'm at a commercial gym and the bars are ****. They have really aggressive knurling that tears my knees up. I know I could wear sweat pants but I do prefer shorts.
