    A friend of mine who runs has told me that squats help him have more power when running, so there's that. Not being a runner, I don't really know if that is true, but they probably won't hurt.

    I second wheel rollouts, the classic Jacques LaLanne move. A friend of mine's brother worked with him, and he swore by them. If you've ever tried them, you know how they feel and what they do.

    I just gave my lifting partner the business for not getting a lift off for her work weight. Not only is it safer, it improves performance.

    Try drop sets after your main workset, or close grips with a board. Depends on where your weask spots are. But both of those have worked for me.

    I try to work it so that I don't have to cut much before a competition (power lifting), mainly because cutting is so difficult for me. I would say eat for energy, muscle buidling, and health.
