How I Increased my Bench Press Max by 25 lbs in 4 days

So this may sound a bit far fetched or even crazy. However, I watched a video on youtube titled how I increased my bench by 30 lbs in 4 days and I have been watching Uplifter who is a skinny Asian American man (153 lbs with a max bench of 410 lbs). I incorporate their training methods and the 25 lb...

Programming Strongman

Accessories for sumo deadlift

I'm in the process of switching to sumo but this potentially changes all my deadlift accessory work. I've been doing deficit RDL, hyper extension and hamstring curls. I programmed those in to help with conventional but maybe they aren't the best options now. Any thoughts ?

Question 275-> 300 in 3 months?

So I’ll keep it short. I’m a senior in high-school and my bench is currently 275. It’s been my goal to hit 300 before I graduate for two years now. Do you think I can make it? And if so I’d love any tips from very experienced lifters. ( I’m 6’2 180 lbs) Oh and also I graduate in 3 1/2 months
