    Yes- External rotation at shoulder height or just below. Do the lateral raises hurt you with any weight/ resistance? I mean, does it still hurt if you use light weights.

    Provided that you're clued up on how to carry half-decent posture and have a very basic understanding of biomechanics, which I'm sure you do, figuring out the most effective way to use steppers etc...

    OP already said he tried squatting with lifting shoes and it was unsuccessful, so plates under heels will be of no help either.

    If you require a wooden board/block under your heels, then this means you've got a mobility issue in the ankles or hips. Best to combat this head-on with the appropriate stretching/release work,...

    As mentioned above, it's more of a conditioning/ circuit piece of equipment.

    Progressive overload is required to make strength or size gains, and other methods are proven through the decades to...

    I wouldn't consider the barbell row to be a shoulder exercise, and yet I'd still recommend it over the shrug any day of the week. The benefits far outweigh those of shrugs.

    I always deadlift in socks, never any other way. Though if you own a pair of shoes with a very flat sole (converses etc.), then they're also suitable. Running shoes and the like which have a...

    Use chalk, straps, hooks or other bits of assistance equipment once your grip begins to fail, no earlier. Don't use a mixed grip (one hand over, one under).

    Tighten your lower back a bit more and that's a perfectly acceptable deadlift.

    If you find that your hips are shooting up before the bar leaves the floor then your posterior chain is too slack,...

    Don't go to the doctor or a nutritionist to ask why you're underweight OP, you'd be wasting your time and theirs. For now at least, try eating more whole foods and learn how to lift safely.

    If foam rolling hurts to the point of feeling excruciating and unbearable, chances are you should just back off a bit. Find a position which allows you to apply less pressure on the roller, or use a...

    For those who say 'if you just want to get bigger, use a Smith machine'- You don't think a barbell squat will make you bigger?

    Not having a spotter is no excuse, as someone else said you can just put the safety pins/bars in place in a squat rack or power cage.

    There's a distinct reason why a lot of people prefer machine...

    Congratulations on your progression. If you've only been deadlifting for 3 weeks, it would be wise to get your technique checked by someone in the know, before adding even more weight.

    I think you could tighten your upper back a little more just before you pull, as this is what leads to the rest of your back bending a tiny bit. But overall it looks really solid.

    Sounds like you're making an excuse for why the numbers could be more, but aren't. Who cares.

    Unless you're doing very short, uphill sprints, then no, it's not the same at all. Follow a beginners' routine (examples of which are listed in these forums) and stick to the set/rep range within.
