    Good advice in this thread, but this post was absolutely true for me. I don't know if I'm getting the upper-back development I was looking for, but the carryover to pulling off the floor was serious....

    Where should you feel rack-pulls

    I was doing rack-pulls from below the knee yesterday after my heavy squats. The goal was to develop the upper-back, but I felt it in my hamstrings and lower-back. Is that normal? I am thinking that I...

    I hear you and understand your situation. To each his own. The belt does allow you to get tighter, and getting tighter is better for lifting more weight. That is, as long as you don't strain your abs...
  • Strain in core from wearing belt too tight?

    Has anyone ever had this or are you familiar with this? I've never read about it or heard about it.

    I get some muscle strain under my ribs or a little bit more to the side. It happens when I'm...

    Yes, it's very possible. But if you feel like your rotator cuff is "gonna crush" then you're probably doing something wrong. Post a video of your wide-grip (and close-grip may help too.) Then someone...

    Slavic Swole Reviews?

    Has anyone tried this program? I'm especially interested in how it compares to the regular Bulgarian Method for increasing your 1RMs.

    Rest periods and hypertrophy

    There have been some research articles in the past few years that have argued against the old idea that shorter rests produced more hypertrophy.

    It seems that it is total volume that is more...

    You should also take a look at what part of the lift you're failing. Are you failing off your chest, at the middle, or at lock out. All of these different points of failure can be addressed by...

    When and when not to wear a belt

    How do you get in belt-less work, and do you wear a belt for accessory lifts? I'm thinking this is an individual thing.

    I'm doing the GZCL method and plan to do closer to the minimum amount of...

    Yea, the clean-grip can be tough if that's what you're talking about. Going cross-armed can make a big difference in terms of being able to maintain form throughout the rep. You can even clean-grip...

    A lot but it's off and on. Consistency is the most important thing and life has gotten in the way for me.

    LB-Squat: 405#
    Bench: 285#
    Deadlift: 530#
    Front-Sq: 300#...

    What do you think of this program?

    I originally just started thinking out this program for fun, but I ended up spending way too much time thinking about it. It's basically the GZCL Method, but with my own spin on it.

    You could try putting a filter on your cell and/or computer to keep the wrong types of light out of your eyes close to bed. Stop watching videos without that filter an hour before bed.

    I agree with the above post. You don't need to go that far below parallel unless you're training for Olympic weightlifting. Also, I would suggest that you avoid the pause reps that you're doing right...

    With 180# for 3 x 3, accessory work shouldn't be the problem. If your goal is benching a lot of weight then rows are a fantastic exercise, but I'm thinking that you need to bench-press more to...

    Retract your scapula as much as possible. If it's not fully retracted then you're using more pec, especially at the bottom. I had a little pec tear that was starting to develop in my right pec and...
