  1. Barbell Adding the Squat to Power to the People?

    I'm looking for a minimalist program that focuses on the Bench, Squat, and Deadlift. PTTP is an extremely interesting program to me and I hear great things about it. I want to implement it as soon as I'm done with bootcamp and whatnot. But I am curious if it'd be too taxing to add Squats to the...
  2. Barbell Deadlift dynamite program

    Hi, I have been lifting on and off for about a year, and recently came off a long forced layoff. I would like to learn the powerlifts (DL,SQ,BP) well before I start practicing them again and to this end I've been reading Deadlift Dynamite. I've read and re-read all the progressions relatively...
  3. Barbell Leg curl before squats?

    My goal is strength and to build overall size and have bigger numbers. My question is, ive always been plagued with knee pain due to being quad dominant, however I've heard that leg curls (High rep) are brilliant before heavy squats (sets of five) to lubricate the joint and make the squat more...

    Kettlebell StrongFirst Reload Cycle and S&S

    Hi all, I'm wondering how to schedule a plan in which I would like to have S&S sessions and DL with Squats as in Reload? I have 5-6 sessions of S&S with 32kg (Timeless Simple competed), but I think in order to add some DL and SQ I would have to reduce to 3-4. The main goal would be to get...
  5. Barbell Squat form check

    Hi all, I’m new to the forum and I had previously posted a deadlift video and gotten some great feedback. I’m hoping to improve my squat as well and my goal would be to keep getting stronger and avoiding injury. Today I did a 5x5 at 215lb. Last couple of weeks I was working in the 10 rep range...
  6. Kettlebell Squat, Deadlift - Form Check

    Hi, I'm Alex, I've been practicing with kettlebells for almost a year with some months off because of a mild left shoulder injury and problems with hemmorrhoids. While on pause I did the stretches from S&S and shoulder focused excercises for recovery, I've also been to a physical therapist a...
  7. Barbell Squat form check

    Hello all, Hoping to get a form check for my Squat. Here is my previous form check. The most important advice was that I needed to slow down and control my descent to consistently reach depth. Another issue was that my heels were coming up at the bottom of the squat (probably due to my...
  8. Barbell Why can't I get stronger in my squat and deadlift? Please help.

    Hi there guys! I've been training for about 3 years now, mostly crossfit and weightlifting. I started from being just a computer nerd into pulling 190kg deadlift and 160kg squat within 2 years. But, after that I could never go higher, and now I have problems lifting that weight aswell...
  9. Kettlebell Getting the kettlebell up for goblet squats

    Hello all! I've been doing 3x5 goblet squats for my warmups and they are becoming one of my favorite mobility/activation exercises. However, I am wondering if there is a preferred way to get the bell up into goblet position. With a lighter bell like I'm using now I can muscle it up pretty...
  10. Barbell Squat form check, please ...

    Hello everyone, Can I get a Squat form check please? I am able to see three problems (please tell me if you see something else). (1) Sometimes my squats feel incredibly hard, and when this happens, I don't reach full depth for some of my reps. Today (Dec 13, 2020) I lifted 220 lbs for 3s x 5r...

    Barbell High bar back squat - making the 'shelf'

    Yesterday evening I did my first sets of heavy (for me, at least) back squats since March. While they went well, I still feel like I could use some advice for getting the bar into a better and more comfortable position on my back ('comfortable' being a relative term). Does anyone have any good...

    Barbell Help with my deadlift and squat form

    I am 22 years old and weight 69 kg. I recently started squatting and deadlifting and upon filming myself and watching the footage I'm pretty sure I have a lot of room to improve. I tried asking some of the coaches at my gym and they say that my form is fine. The squat is a regular high bar back...

  18. Other/Mixed A simple program I thought some of you might enjoy

    Hello everyone! I wanted to share a simple program I created to help me get back in shape and fight the winter blues. It's fairly minimal and can be done quickly, but it works through 5 major movement patterns and can be pretty challenging! For this workout you'll need a mace and one or two...

    Barbell Narrow squat stance

    I've been barbell back squatting for 20 years. I always squatted with a narrow stance and worked up to 150kg for one rep at a body weight of 100kg. Nothing majorly impressive, but then at 6ft 4 inches and naturally skinny, I don't feel like I'm built for heavy weights anyway. Plus I always...
