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

Can't find any weights that'll ship in the near future. How stupid would it be to make my own barbell with a pipe and cement?

Anyone know if a good dumbbell program? All I have at my disposal right now is adjustable dumbbells up to 50lbs.

How long are we looking at not being able to go to gym? Is it time to invest in a home power rack, barbell and plates?

Y'all. I need some strength training programs to do at home, given that gyms are closed indefinitely in NYC. Any full body workout programs? Any reliable apps to use for routines?

Anyone here ever have a severe muscle laceration or tear? Looking for recovery expectations and advice — fell while skiing and landed on the ski edge, cutting 75% through my outer quad

Is it normal to never feel sore after leg day? F here, been weightlifting for over 6 years and never feel sore after a leg day, no matter how hard I try.

Random question: on pulley row, i have begun relaxing my shoulders on the descent. this enables a fuller range of motion and more lat engagement. continued...

Any lady lifters out there dating someone who doesn't lift? I love my boyfriend dearly. I also look like I could take him down in a fight. He's a distance runner so he's pretty lean.

When you guys travel do you workout in the hotel gym? If so is it enough equipment for you?

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)

How long did it truly take you to fully recover from shoulder dislocation ? When did you completely starting lifting like you did prior to the injury? Just doing a lot of resistance and functional wrk

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?
