Injury from deadlift

Last week on my lifting day on my second of three sets of deadlifts I noticed the onset of pain in my left shoulder. I thought at first it was a muscle strain, but then a few days later I see that there is a red bump poking out of my shoulder right where the AC joint is. I just started lifting...

What can I replace the deadlift with?

I'm not sure what the issue is with my form but dumbbell bench press, I feel it more in my rear delts down towards triceps before I ever feel it in my chest, in fact I don't feel it in chest at all. Yesterday I used really light weights focusing on slow controlled reps to try and get my form...

Pull Ups cause shoulder pain

Ive been experiencing shoulder pain for about 2 weeks now especially on pull day. It stopped after 3-4 days of rest and then came back after my last pull day. My guess is that I hurt myself while I was swinging to cheat and get more rep since I stopped using the assisted pull up machine. Its...

Why do I always have leg DOMS?

I train my legs at least twice per week, with squats for 3 sets of 6-8 reps on the first day and Deadlifts 3x5 on the second day. I always follow up these main lifts with Romanian DLs (or leg curl if I just did Deadlifts), Leg Press, and some sort of calf exercise for 2-3 sets of 8-10 reps. I...

Russian fighter pull up program and back training

I am planning to start the Russian fighter pull up program, again, to get my pull up numbers up. That mean doing pull ups 6 days a week. However, will I still be able do do my twice weekly back day? Deadlift, rows, face pulls etc. just minus pull ups and lat pull downs. Any thoughts?

Exercise instead of deadlifts
