I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

comment Do handstand push ups and pike push ups work the posterior deltoid
@JohnP I don't dispute the fact of muscle imbalance, but I was trying to elicit whether this was a bodybuilding issue or an imbalance issue. The former requires exercises specific to that muscle, the latter can often be prevented by more general pulling exercises. I admit it was a bit of a knee-jerk attempt to move away from a muscle-specific frame for exercise.

Why are you concerned about your posterior deltoid?

comment Using knee braces during bootcamp
Is there a medical professional advising you to wear some sort of supportive device? The advice is not to go use a brace if you're healthy.

comment Would this routine work?
If you can't handle a few warm-up sets then you need to work on your work capacity. Three sets of 5 at submaximal weights shouldn't really give you trouble. Those sets are A) good practice and B) a way to accumulate volume. I don't know if you should drop your work weights in order to fit your warm-ups, but if you have to, then you have to.

1x5 on the DL is usually fine until you're near 2xBW. But...wait a second, only one warm-up set? You warm up your 150kg squats with only one set? Usually people spend several sets warming up, like: 1x5 of 20kg, 60kg, 100kg, 120kg, then 150kg 5x5. You should get a form check on every lift, too, while you're at it.

I recommend chalk for deadlifts if you haven't tried that yet. Makes an immense difference.

Your proposed routine is similar in some ways to 5/3/1, maybe reading up on that could help.

Your deadlift jumps out at me as quite low compared to your other lifts, which are solid. Is there a particular reason for that? What's caused you to stop making progress? Do you mean progress in lift numbers, your own mass, or hypertrophy?

comment How reliable are compact squat racks and foldable benches
I don't think the "where can I find this equipment" is allowed, since StackExchange classifies that part of your question as a shopping recommendation, but the rest of your question is solid.

comment What are the rules to be followed while doing push ups at home
I agree that push-up variations are possible, necessary in the long term, and perpetually awesome. Since the question is from someone who is likely a fitness noob, I focused on the basics. Both of your comments on variations would make good answers if fleshed out.

@jontyc I don't know if you mean it as tongue-in-cheek, but it's 'Rippetoe'. 'Rippletoe' (derived from 'Rippletoad') is generally used as a dig aimed at his figure.

comment Weight training without putting on fat
@jontyc That's really it's own question, and quite a good one. The start of an answer is that I've seen 3x5 work quite well for novices trying to gain weight and for novices trying to stay the same weight but get way stronger. Maybe you should look into non-novice programming like 5/3/1 or Olympic weightlifting style routines that use lower rep ranges. But diet is always going to be central.

comment Weight training without putting on fat
@jontyc Depending on the definition of "heavy" I don't think that's true--consider Dimitry Klokov, Pyrros Dimas, or really any powerlifter or Oly lifter in the lower weight classes. Maybe measuring body measurements instead of scale weight would help, but the primary thing is that you need to focus on diet.
