    Where are my damn abs hiding

    So bit of background I definitely have a bit of a core weakness that's actually caused an anterior pelvic tilt IMO although I'm not a physio, but it seems like my lower back and hip flexors take on way more of the load in day to day life to make up for my core. Before I started lifting when I...

    85-90% load training deadlift

    As a non natural lifter how often should i be lifting an 85-90% load deadlift to increase my strength. I havent been able to make any strength gains on deadlift. Been stuck at 185 for 3 weeks training 3x3 185kg deadlifts wednesday and sundays. I am thinking i over estimated the speed at which my...

    need a belt... any recommendations?

    Ive been lifting for 15 months and am getting painful lower back on my deadlifts... saw a coach who helped me a lot with my form but it still hurts for days afterwards. Also if i do a big squat session i get pain. I was thinking to try a belt to provide some support for my lower back. Any...

    First two weeks to a month training?

    Hi all. I'm just at the end of my first week in the gym. I'm 45 and haven't trained for about 15 years so am a little rusty. I thought for the first month I should do some conditioning so I don't injure myself so I'm going 5 days a week, doing very low weights and just doing basically big muscle...

Or am i hitting my chest too hard... bench press, close grip, db bench, flys, then reverse flys, bicep curl and skullcrushers.... How...

    What's this Barbell?

    For those of you who are subject historians... What is this? Thought old York, but can't see any markings. Felt closer to 28 than 29, certainly nowhere near 30+ mm.

    GPC newsletter WTF.

    Got the GPC newsletter. First few lines read: So, from that, I get that Andy Hargreaves is, "subsequent to that", either a druggy, an anti druggy, a government employee covering his butt, a NSW source, an anti drug abuse and distribution advocate or non of the above. I also notice that GPC...

    [Article] Are deadlifts necessary beyond powerlifting?

    My humble view is that deadlifts are overrated as an exercise, beyond their importance to powerlifting. I tend to agree with this article https://www.t-nation.com/training/the-deadlift-who-needs-it I also say this despite that lift being probably my best lift of the three powerlifts. as a...

    Need your help please...

    Few years ago I was asked by Mr. Ben Crawely (the general manager/owner of Bulk Nutrients), one of Ausbb sponsors, if I was at all interested in becoming a powerlifter or competing in a powerlifting competition. At the time I said no I was not interested as I knew absolutely nothing about the...

    Sumo Deadlifts on Leg day???

    Anyone tried Sumo Deadlifts on Leg day as part of a BB routine? When you think about it, a Sumo Deadlift (or a "Powerlifting cheats Deadlift") takes out a lot of the Back and works the Legs and Glutes more. Bit like a Jefferson Squat but not as awkward.

By the time I get to my second lot of a deadlifts for the weak the pain is gone, usually lasts 3-4 days...

    Grip weakest link in deadlift

    Hi All, My trainer has me currently doing high-volume to bring up my work capacity and to burn off the fat. However with deadlifts my forearms and grip is running out of steam halfway through the sets. I know I have other options but: 1. I don't like alternating grip due to some imbalances, a...

    Squats and Deadlifts 7 days a Week!?!?

    Wasn't sure if I should put this in the body building or power lifting section, so I just put it here. Not sure if such a program exists, but I was thinking the other day while driving to work for an hour, I might give Squats and Deadlifts daily a run for a little while and see. My thoughts...
