Problems with Hack Squat Machine

I added the hack squat into my program about 9 months ago. Progress went great until my last increase in weight. Legs pushed it just fine but my AC separated. It appears that the shoulder pads are right over the weak point of my joint. I really like the exercise and would hate to give it up. ...

Hey guys I have been running a couple miles a few times a week and I noticed every time I run, the next day it’s almost like I’m sick. I cough a lot and just feel like crap. Is this unusual? Is it from vaping? I switched from chew to juul because I heard it’s healthier. I’ll quit cold turkey if...

Conventional vs. trap bar DL & overall back hypertrophy

I know that trap bar deads take a lot of load off the low back, but is the same true for the upper back, mid back and lats? Can the trap bar be as effective for overall back hypertrophy as conventional?

Do you pinch the shoulder blades back during sit ups?

Some videos on youtube i see guys recommend having the shoulder blades pinched at all times. Other videos i see a more rounded back, so they can get the proper crunch/squeeze in. I believe the latter is the correct method, but hopefully i can get some more feed back here.
