A bowl to talk about weightlifting, powerlifting, nutrition, bulking up, and more.

I know it varies by severity of injury, but does anyone have experience with inguinal hernia surgery recovery time? I lift decently heavy and was wondering if I could get back to 100% after 6 months.

What is everyone’s goal for 2020? I want to do enough pull ups that I would reach the equivalent height of the stratosphere (60-70k reps)

Lazy summer and lots of regression in strength. For lower body, noticeably more loss in my squat than deadlift. Is this indicative of deterioration in a specific muscle that I should focus on rebuild?

What are your favorite blogs/podcasts/newsletters to learn about nutrition and fitness? I'd like to become more knowledgable on being healthy (i.e., eating right, exercise tips, etc.).

In a bad place mentally going into heavy lifts. At my strongest, went into each lift with confidence and purpose. Lost some strength and now mindset is “hopeful” to hit the lift. Anyone else... (cont)

Anyone wear Gymshark gear? See them all over social media and wondering if their clothes are any good or if they just pay a lot for marketing

Rando at a legit gym (non-PF) just asked me to spot him for 5 sets on bench.... on a smith machine. Am I right to be a bit annoyed at the request?
