    See a coach straight away re hip mobility/squat patterns if you aren't a magical Asian squatter

    I would recommend visits for all movements in any case

    The trainer needs to understand levers, mobility and varying ideal mechanics

    So a PL coach not a pt

    started off with a program better suited to powerlifting than 5/3/1, the usual form stuff etc.

    He's just shitposting like usual.

    There used to be some good powerlifting info and lifters on here, unfortunately they are gone.

    All mediocre lifters and old farts now!

    I probably should have done a three lift comp when I was younger and more capable instead of just bench competition. Was always worried about not being able to get total in the 700's in front of my peers and it just never happened. Now I'd be content with a total in the 600's with nobody around (there never is at local PA events anyway).But I'm glad I didn't bust myself up too much so I can still lift reasonable weights now. Definitely regret not doing more Olympic lifts but again, I might not be capable of training heavy now if I had done so.Best lesson from 30 years or so of lifting weights - no one cares about your pecs or what you lift, only you care.
    Without me my barbell is nothing.
