    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    No way TKJTG. Every good deadlifter gets his hips under the bar, that's just a fact.

    Are there any more affordable alternatives to the Rehband knee sleeves or should I just pony up

    congratulations guys you've made lifting weights as needlessly complex as streetwear & denim

    When I start to over think shit I just remind myself guys who were lifting before the days of the Internet were successful by eating a lot /smart and lifted big.

    When squatting high bar how far apart should arms be ideally? for some reason ive always gripped the bar as close together as i could, not sure why... i think thats how i learned it, maybe thats the cause of my problems? doubtful but i just realized i have a super narrow grip after watching squatting videos

    Just started stronglifts 5x5 tonight. Wanted to switch things up for a few weeks (will be longer if progress is good) since I had been on my old routine a while and it was getting stale. What length do you guys on 5x5 take for breaks? When progressing in weight, do you add 5lb to every set every workout or just 1set, 2 set, etc. to work up? Any additional accessory work? I feel like I should at least be doing something for abs. Did squat at 5x5x155, felt really good grinding out the last few reps :)

    Markl- Probably the best form video I've found for highbar squats; worked for a couple of friends who've only started 'lifting' recently (0:49, upper back tightness is discussed and this OHP method is a pretty good gauger of grip width); though TBH grip width is entirely personal as long as upper back is tight you can grab wherever you want.

    Squatted my previous 1 rep max for ten Friday since I started an LP. I was so sore and shot yesterday that I had like the biggest fail day ever. Literally everything I tried to do I couldn't think straight and ended up fucking something up.

    Oly squatters, when coming up from the hole, look up, down or straight ahead?

    inherently nothing its just a joke how ridiculous lifting culture has become. dave draper looked better than anyone today drinking milk, eating dbol with salt and lifting heavy. don't even get me started on crossfit, its actually starting to come between my best friend and i
