    OP, you should give more information. How can we suggest how you should change your routine and diet when you haven't told us what your routine and diet are to begin with?

    You should do what breathinglife said and read the stickies on programming. Sounds like you're following your own training routine, which probably isn't wise given you're 14 (no offense, but it's...

    I don't have an article to cite. But basically it tenses the core, which allows for more stability/better force transference. Same thing as holding your breath on a heavy rep, albeit to a lesser...

    Going from low bar to high bar can be useful, but changing your stance more than that is going to give you more benefit, if your quads really are lagging. If you change to high bar, but keep...

    Could be a strength imbalance. Or maybe you just lost a little balance and shifted your weight to your right leg. Or maybe you put more weight on your right leg because that's your under-hand, and...

    No problem. Your deadlift seems fine. At your strength level, I wouldn't worry so much about sticking points or strength/weakness in certain ranges in your lifts. The proportions of your three...

    Do you use chalk? And do you use mixed grip, or was this with double overhand? Nobody else asked these, so I figured I would. If you were using double over without chalk, changing one or both of...

    ^^^ A lot of people will have trouble with that starting position. And it's not necessarily the optimal starting position anyway. Because it's the deadlift and not a clean, it's okay to start with...

    Without access to a gym, the only thing you can do is improvise with what you have. Bands aren't a bad idea. You can do pushups with them and some upper back stuff too, if you're creative enough. ...
