>beyond 5/3/1 5/3/1 template guy here
I did not see a powerlifting general in the catalog, and that's a darn shame, so I'm getting the ball rolling.
Today was squat day of the 3rd week of my first cycle(5/3/1+ week). Did all of my warm ups and first 2 work sets(up to 270 lbs) beltless, belted up and got 8 reps of my 1+ weight(305). Took a few minutes to rest and decided I needed to do some Joker singles.
Nailed 320x1, 340x1, and a pretty tough 360x1 that scared me a little on the drive back up due to a little back twinge. Thought I had just switched trains from gains to snap city, lol.
After that I backed off to my first work set and just did 3x5 of my first work set(240). I dunno what it is about squats but I just can't seem to do any real volume work after the main event/Jokers.
I gave back extensions a try, after watching the California Strength video on them. I feel like the back pump is an awful feeling, which leads me to the conclusion that I may need to work on them for a while.
There's my day. Ask questions, post PRs, discuss routines/lifts/meets/etc

Neuroo and trip4cut referred me to you. Aware me bro on what I should with this problem: I got a fucked up right shoulder.
Really fucked up. like 7 subluxations, 2 after a labrum fixation surgery. It is better after the surgery than before, but it's still not fully stable and I can't rely on it. Exercises like overhead press, bench press are outright too dangerous for me to even do so I don't. I ain't even mad about those but some other weird stuff that would be optimal for me to do, I can't do it. Like reverse rowing to a barbell, shoulder cracked. Face pulls, it felt weird.
The point is, any big movement of hands above the chest seems to make me feel scared for it. Now my deadlift is starting to grow and I don't want the shoulder to be a bottleneck for it if it'll start acting up with higher weight.
Tell me bro, HOW do I stabilize this shit? Do I need to do some weird esoteric pussy exercise? Some yoga stuff? Fuck it I'll do yoga in a pink ballerina costume if it'll help me get it stable again
Help me brah. I've scheduled some appointments with physio docs but maybe you have some good ideas too

So it turns out the diet you thought was good is actually shit and is going to kill you
Are you actually interested in health and looking to go vegan, or are you waiting for your cancer/heart disease?
Before you get all mad and defensive, watch the video. The top 15 leading causes of death in the US (minus one, which is just random violent accidents) are linked to consuming animal products. Even things like eggs, chicken, and fish like you thought were safe are highly toxic

I have recently started working out for basically the first time in my life, I have no idea what I'm doing and no idea how to work out properly. I read the sticky and i've come to the conclusion that my workout that I am doing is a joke, I am not horribly out of shape, I have a small beer gut and I smoke so my stamina is low as shit.
So tl;dr I want to do something very structured for a while until I can handle fitness on my own and I decided I want to do either P90, or P90X. I am not in terrible shape as I said but I am not horrible either, I just was wondering your opinions on whether I should do P90 first or just jump straight into P90X.
I have the want and willpower to stick with whatever I am going to end up doing which makes me think i should go straight for P90X but I want your opinions.
Thanks in advance guys.
