    What kind of workout are you asking about?

    For weightlifting, time working out doesn't matter in the least. What matters is volume at certain intensities for certain lifts.

    Many of the guys have a wide stance for sure, but their arms are usually outside their knees for deadlift, as in conv. Atlas stone is an exception, keg carry sometimes an exception.

    Those look like stiff leg DLs. Get your hips lower, pull your lats tighter.

    I've heard the argument that conv. is superior to sumo because sumo is mostly leverage whereas conv. depends on your...

    You'd think so, but frequency seems to counteract that in a positive way, when using appropriate intensities. The RTS-based program I've been running most of this year has me benching 4 times a...

    What exact program are you running now? Probably no need to add anything to it.

    4-6 weeks before the meet, you'll want to run a peaking block. Until that time, nearly any decent program will...

    Yes but not sure I'd try for a true 1rm. Again, it would depend on feeling and goals for that cycle
