    I'm aware of all of this; however, my lats tend to take over during every pulling exercise I perform. So that's why I asked the question. Just some clarification.

    But thanks for the advice. I...

    You need to address some things. Such as mobility, flexibility, and mind muscle connection.

    In general, I like hanging leg raises from time to time (generally before a workout). But I attribute a...

    You certainly aren't wrong.

    But at the end of the day, I'm not squatting 3x a week. 2x a week works just fine for me.

    Personally, I would make the following changes:
    1. 2-3 sets of pull ups after deadlifts. Use a band to assist you if need be. If you don't have a band and can't do pull ups, kip.
    Just kidding....

    Took me from 475 to 525 (meet) when I ran it. Definitely recommended.

    1. Get a solid training program and stick to it.
    2. Keep a training log.
    3. Stay healthy. Never neglect foam rolling, mobility work, and prehab. Avoiding injury is the key to longevity.
    4. Get a...

    It's not terrible but I think you would see much better progress from more simplicity and a different layout. Instead of a bro split, try full body, or perhaps upper/lower.

    Your arms will grow from it assuming your primary lifts are increasing and you're gaining weight. Just remember, chin ups build biceps and barbell pressing on any plane will recruit the triceps to a...

    How to wash wraps?

    My slingshot wrist wraps smell like a goats *******. I figured it'd be best to use hot water, not boiling, mixed with vinegar. Any tips?

    You can't serve two masters for very long. Focus on one goal and let everything else fall where it lands.

    If you want to get stronger, do SL. If you want to improve conditioning, pick another...

    For what it's worth, 5/3/1 increased my deadlift more than anything.

    I think the cube method would work well for you. Honestly, just do the routine you think you'd enjoy.

    Here's my current layout. I took some principles from 5/3/1, with the TM, and basing percentages off of it. It's 4x5 @ 85% for week one, 6x3 @ 90% for week two. Then the TM is increased 5-10lb and...

    I actually agree with you on the 3x a week thing. I know it's tried and tested but I'm not squatting 3x a week. No thanks Jeff.

    I've had more luck with this:
    Day 1: squat, bench, rows,...

    Like stated above, I wouldn't pay much attention to your curl progression. You will never be able to progress linearly like you can with a compound movement.

    I hate to say it but it depends.

    Deadlifts are overrated for building backs. For the general population, they won't notice much from deadlifts until they're moving a respectable amount of weight...
