>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

I'm doing a 5x5 BB routine, and I want to know what I'm missing out on. I'm considering adding in isolation exercises for strength and hypertrophy on the muscles and groups that need it. I don't have a ten year goal, I just want to avoid hitting some point where I find I've neglected something crucial down the road. I've spent the last week learning about agonist/antagonist pairs, stabilizer groups, etc.
So far I'm thinking about adding:
Standing and seated press for the calves and soleus,
Curls and tricep work once a week, hypertrophy specific,
and trap and delt work focused more on strength.
What am I missing, what should I know?

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

Sup /fit/. Got my second concussion about three weeks ago, kinda feeling hazy and the headaches are coming back worse and worse. Senior football season is becoming less and less of an option for me, so that's a thing, a little bummed.
My main problem is not being able to work out anymore. I've got plans for the Naval Academy after graduation, and if the concussion fades out I need to be in shape for wrestling season which is coming up pretty quickly now.
I'm not allowed to work out, basically. Any sort of physical activity whether it be walking across the house or lifting a box fucks me up.
Any /fit/izens with concussion experience that can give me advice? Such as what I should be eating, what I should be doing fitness wise? Thanks brahs.
captcha's are fucking hard right now what the fuck

does the direct approach actually work with chicks?
I mean will your luck be just as good asking "wanna fuck?" as it would be spending an assload of time getting to know her and talking to her and shit
I guess a better question would be, say there's a chick I wanna slam, should I just straight up ask if she's down for the d or would I have a better chance becoming friends with her, taking her out, doing stupid shit like holding hands, kissing, making out, and then finally fucking?
