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

comment Benefits of neck extension training?
I think it's just for looks in Greyskull. I remember hearing the author being quoted something like "the neck is the one muscle people can see even if you're in a suit".

comment Trainer told me to do 5 sets of 5 deadlifts. Should I be worried?
@DaveNewton No, as my answer discusses, 1x5 is for work sets, which is distinct from warm-up sets in most nomenclature. Madcow is an exception as far as I can tell; they say to do 4 sets, but only the last one is a work set. And while I'm generally a fan of more programming context, and I'd be happy to see that here, I think it's probably not necessary to know about the rest of his routine.

@DaveNewton Starting Strength, StrongLifts, Madcow, and GreySkull LP (sort of) all use one set of five at the work weight for deadlifts. It's not the whole program, but it's certainly common enough.

While the StrongLifts advice is very applicable to the OP, who is (I assume) a novice, multiple sets are often called for in more advanced programming.

Upvoting because multiple sets to failure works for you and your deadlift is dramatically higher than everybody else's here, but I will note that one set of five or less (not to failure) got my deadlift 3RM above double bodyweight. Most people outside of strength-specific sports consider that at least minimally sufficient for health and athletics.

Is 175 near your max for a set of 5, or is your 1 rep max something like 185?

You squat and deadlift. Don't those work your abs and core?

comment What is the correct diet and exercise for me given the following information?
+1 for the right tone and covering all the bases. I personally would do whole-body movements instead of separating the body parts into different exercises, but that's quibbling. Nice answer.
