Are you squatting low bar or high bar? Sumo or conventional for deadlifts?

I noticed some hip discomfort doing a combo of low bar and sumo when I transitioned into them.

Make sure you roll and stretch them out before and after every workout - that was the difference maker for me.

Just started the Cube Method.

Anyone have feedback on this program? Worth doing?

I don't have access to bands - what are some alternative exercises for the listed banded exercises (e.g. reverse band squat, band deadlifts)?

Looks MUCH better, thanks for the suggestion! Have you ran it before?

***EDIT***

Didn't want to post again, but Sid when you ran it did you base the percentages of the secondary movements (CG bench, deficit DL, high bar squats) off of your "competition" lifts? Or did you have a projected max for all those exercises as well?

Because squatting low bar for 3 sets of 8-12 @ 70%, then doing high bar for 2 sets of 6-8 at an even higher percentage of 75% sounds impossible lol. Not to mention another 2-3 sets of 8 paused at 60% after that.

5 pounds to 5 plates on bench should hit it under a month

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Looking to purchase a pair of weightlifting shoes.

Eyeing the Adidas Powerlift 2.0s. From what i read: Pros are its half the price of romaleos/adipower. Cons are its .6 inch heel vs .75 inch, less sturdy.

Anyone think i should just shell out the $200 for a pair of adipower or romaleos? Is the price justifiable or will cheaper versions be good enough?

I have the adipowers but got them when the adidas Canada store was having a sale. IMO get the adipowers or romaleos. They're worth it and you won't regret it.

I suggest going straight for the adipowers or the nike romaleos. . I started with the powerlift 2.0's as well but now they just sit in my room as I have upgraded.
If you buy them off adidas canada, they're cheaper than adiadas US and ships for free. i think you can also get extra discount from signing up your email for the first time.

+1 for Adipower / Romaleo. They are good investments, and eventually you will regret not spending those extra dollars for them.

On a side note, girlfriend scored the Powerlift 2.0s at Seattle Premium Outlet for $23 lol.

2 days ago went to the gym but a really rushed session with friends. Didn't warm up much and skipped stretching before we got started. We were about to leave and I picked up a 30 in a rush with feet closed together. Felt something move near my tailbone. As we walked it got worse and worse. Got home and went to the doc's and he said its a torn ligament. Sore 24/7 all around mid section, apply any strength and you get a muscle spasm, I can barely walk properly.

Got any advice to make this better? Lesson learned

rest it out, make sure the other variables of health are taken care of - sleep and nutrition. from here on out, lift with proper ergonomics..

always pay attention to form with whatever you do during the day - walking, sitting, and especially bending down to pick up stuff

What's with the hype on deadlifting ? Most of you don't have the physical build to deadlift heavy. Have you seen what pro power lifters look like ? Exactly. Ease up on the weight and aim on higher reps, none of this 2-3 rep bullshit. You will look and feel a lot better, and your back/joints will thank you. What's the point of deadlifting 500 pounds when you look like shit all around ? Who you trying to impress ? Ronnie Coleman ? Look at him now.
