Lumbar rounding Deadlift but Zero pain & still gaining

So, I’m 155 lbs and just pulled 520 a month ago. A decent pull but ever since I started deadlifting a year ago my Lumbar/low back has always been slightly-moderately rounded. Even when I setup there is a slight rounding and it increases as I initiate the pull. The weird thing is that I get zero...

Lightbulb 1 bottle (16 oz) of 0.5% low alcohol beer everyday and powerlifting

How does drinking 1 bottle (16 oz) of low alcohol (0.5% alcohol by volume) beer daily affect powerlifting training. I like the taste of non alcoholic beer and kombucha, both have small amount of alcohol.

Butt coming off the bench, form of overload?

Basically the title says it all. I was benching 245 which is damn near my max, I’ve done the lift before without my butt coming off, it’s extremely rare that my butt does come off.
