I'm not following a specific protocol. Unfortunately I have to train earlier than I'd like at the moment, because my clients train from 3-6/7, then I rush home to help put the kids to sleep. So I...

My training is crazy. Sometimes I go heavy, sometimes not. I rarely ever do more than a few sets of a movement. I typically have a 2 set limit of any higher rep, assistance...

I'm so happy I have enough 45's to do what I need to do. I used to have to layer up 35s and 25s to get the weight I wanted in my home gym, and it drove me crazy. It just looks wrong.

That's true, but even with my clients I switch to the bigger plate. So, say someone is moving 95 with 25s on each side. If we are going up to 115, I'll still pull the 25s off and put 35s on instead...

Actually, I believe in using as few plates as possible. One of the things that drove me crazy about working in a crossfit gym is that they would just add small plates. They warm up, then add 10's...

That should work just fine. Don't make it too tight, you want space to push your belly out and fill the belt up.

As for the form cues, DL can be tough. I don't think you need a fully flat back...

Yeah, there's a lot of room for improvement in your pull. I think you should scrap your entire current setup routine and start from scratch. Instead of focusing on your grip first, start by getting...

The bar always moves just a little forward on the squat. Since the butt goes back the weight has to move a couple inches forwards at the bottom or you'd fall backwards.

Squats look good, as far...

You need to change the way you look at the bench. Instead of pushing the weight up, push yourself down into the bench. That makes it easier to keep a tight back. Speaking of which, when you take...

Only reason to get a deadlift bar is if you compete in meets with them. I don't have one, my bars aren't too whippy but I've still pulled 545+ a number of times. No reason to overthink it for most...
