    Another unpopular opinion from me. I think that if a powerlifter is going to do cardio, low impact steady state is preferable over high intensity cardio. Examples would be riding a bike or zoning out...

    Given that you're a runner, a case could be made for putting unilateral movements at the start of the workout (eg lunges, split squats) and leaving regular squats til later in the workout. That is...

    You're getting tightness through the back at the start of each rep (although you could extend your lumbar quite a bit further -- there's still some flexion there) and maintaining that tightness...

    Unfortunately, that doesn't give me much of a clue as to what's going wrong, but it tells me something is going wrong when you attempt to pull yourself into the bar. Done correctly, not only will it...

    I would expect that to work. You're getting more practice on the bench press while fresh and doing the most important part of the workout (for bench press) up front. That tends to get positive...

    I honestly can't remember. I think the first time I did it was actually a double (1 paused, 1 tng) two weeks before comp (where I got 102.5kg on my third attempt -- the difference between my 1RM and...

    On upper body I superset everything. I still give myself plenty of rest after each superset, but every press is followed immediately by some kind of pull. This includes on warm up sets. It's not...

    First vid: Whole back rounds during the first rep, but throughout the set it's just hips shooting up faster than shoulders with the back staying mostly flat. This is a sign that you haven't set up...

    Trunk position generally looks good. I don't see you rounding out or doing much body English. Legs appear to be turned out enough for your body to get...

    Work on technique. Keep practicing through a variety of rep ranges. Accumulate volume. Rest as needed. Do other exercises that build up the pecs, deltoids and triceps as needed. Balance with work for...

    There are literally hundreds of cues you could use for any given exercise, and at some point all of them will have their place. However, there are also only a handful of cues that will work to get...

    If I've contradicted myself, you better show it, cus I'm not seeing it.

    By "good," I don't mean optimal: I mean passable. You don't need to have any experience lifting weights to know when you...

    At 87kg bodyweight, the only way eating 1400kcal/day will stop you from getting stronger when you're still only squatting 70kg and bench pressing 55kg is if you don't physically or mentally feel good...

    As far as self-made novice routines go, this is relatively non-retarded. Off to a good start there. It's rare that I recommend a male do more upper body pushing, but I think you should add an...

    If you had to choose between Texas Method and Madcows, I would definitely advocate for Madcows. In my experience, while Madcows 5x5 does have 5 sets of 5 reps, only one of them is a legitimate work...

    Depends on how you approach cardio.

    Light cardio eg going for a walk, or hopping on a bike/cross-trainer and going at a steady pace (~60% MHR) gives your body almost nothing to recover from, so...

    I honestly doubt that calories are the reason you've stalled. Technique is much more likely a factor. Ideal situation, of course, would be to work with a good strength coach, preferably face to face...

    Never heard of 6 minutes to soreness. Athlean-X is hit-or-miss when it comes to quality, but I offer a 125% guarantee that Jeff Cavalier did not build his physique on 6 minute workouts.
