Looking at it again, the big thing you need to do is stop breathing during each rep. Take a big breath before each rep, brace your core, and hold your breath throughout the rep. Exhale when done with the rep, take a breath or two if necessary before the next one, then inhale and brace again. You could squat 25 more pounds today if you do that and get your mind right.

@PrakashWadhwani With the kind of bar speed in those videos, there is absolutely no way you should be failing with 5 or 10 more pounds on any of those lifts. You have a lot of room to add weight, as long as you recognize that the bar will move more slowly and that you'll have to brace yourself, breath, and reset between reps.

@Amir Cardio means essentially "anything that makes you sweaty and out of breath", so all sorts of options exist—swimming, running, calisthenic circuits—but none of these will be both easier and more effective.

You tried 5-6 times over what kind of time span? One week, or six months?

Are these your 5-rep-maxes? How much are you lifting in each one?

Oh man those are super-sideways. Could you rotate them right-side-up?

comment What happens if someone works out 12 hours a day?
Are we talking about an ultramarathon runner doing this for one day, or someone who just got off the couch? This is way too theoretical and broad. What problem are you trying to solve?

Yes. Why do you think it might not?

comment Rules to follow to bulk up
Running will increase your stamina, but will probably reduce your appetite. To increase food intake and get bigger you need to do resistance training. Lifting weights is your best bet.

comment What are good books on general exercise principles?
@Mephisto You're making a caricature of the book's diet recommendations. He does not say what you describe. And part of the point regarding bodybuilding (which is true also of most of the rest of your list) is that it's not necessary or productive for the vast majority of people.
