Make sure you pop your butt put before you stand also. And mess around with your stance. Toes should be slightly turned out like when you squat. Powerlifting is amazing. You are a bad *** for doing it. Keep it up- being strong mentally and physically is admirable. ♡♡♡♡

Sure I know HOW to do the lift, but it took a bit of mobility training before I COULD. Now I have a lifting routine as well as a mobility routine geared toward the compound lifts.

I'm not a powerlifter per se because I also do overhead press and bentover barbell rows (off the floor)... (It is called the 'Pendlay Row')

The program I'm following now is called Stronglifts 5X5. I foirst got the idea off Rainbow.Sprinkles - a strong-girl on this thread.

That is awesome- I have never heard of the pendlay row- I will look it up. Any tips you can share, I'd love to hear them. I will look up Stronglifts 5X5 also.

stronglifts is a great program for beginner lifters. I'm coming up on a year of doing this program and I'm starting to wonder how long one does a beginner's program for before switching to a more moderate program. it makes me sad because I'm so attached to stronglifts lol.

I read the Stronglifts page pretty thouroughly, and it says once one really stops progressing in the 5X5 it changes the sets/reps program and then it moves on to the Madcow program.

See the table of contents Number 3. "Plateaus" then scroll down to "deloads" https://stronglifts.com/5x5/...

...if you read down a bit past the stuff you already know and have done, you'll see recommendations that say when you stop progressing on the 5X5, then do less sets, less reps (the numbers are all there) - and finally advises to switch to the Madcow program. It describes Madcow and provides a link to Madcow's page.

I love the Stronglifts 5X5 program. It's perfect for me - and the Stronglifts 5X5 webpage is really good!

BTW, I have this great demonstration of a Pendlay Row: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8l_8chR5BE&t=118s

interesting, thanks for the heads up! I'm definitely still progressing so I guess I'll just keep going with it. :)
