What was the injury? And it's unrelated to your direct question, but doing StrongLifts plus a pull-up program is a major sign of fuckarounditis. Better to pick a program and focus on it.

comment Is this diet right for bulking up?
I voted to close as a duplicate but the votes to close based on it being off-topic due to being a nutrition question are misguided.

You don't lift things overhead in everyday life? You don't want your body to have that functionality? This is a weird application of the principle of functional training.

comment Why isn't barefoot squatting recommended?
This question is kind of all over the place. Burning feet, is it OK to squat barefoot, why isn't it recommended...what is the single most important question?

comment Why isn't barefoot squatting recommended?
@Tarius Ankle dorsiflexion is more commonly a more severe issue than being pitched forward when squatting maximally deep.

comment combining crossfit with stronglifts - both scheduling and weight intensity
How often do you do the same lift in a given strength session at your box? If it's infrequent (e.g. back squats every 2 weeks) then it makes sense that it wouldn't show much progress. I'd ask if they offer a dedicated strength program, either as a separate class or as an alternative to the day's strength move.

comment What exercises can improve my squat depth? I'm limited by how far my knees go over my toes
See this question for a variety of good solutions. Often calf inflexibility is paired with ankle dorsiflexion immobility and both have to be fixed in order to have a solid squat.

comment Am I eating enough for a bulk?
@Antrim I would say that those reasons are general: someone trying to lose weight should eat/drink (limited amounts of) full-fat dairy rather than reduced-fat dairy because of its high carb content and reduced satiating power, and someone trying to gain weight should avoid reduced-fat dairy because they should want the well-balanced macronutrient profile and caloric power of full-fat.

comment Am I eating enough for a bulk?
@Antrim Why not? The entire idea of reduced-fat dairy is predicated on myth: the myth that eating fat makes you fat, the myth that fat is bad for the heart. Call it what it is: high-carb dairy, with less satiating power and less of the nutrients that I want.

comment Starting Strength, time to move on?
Sounds like a fine time to switch to 5/3/1 or Texas Method (Rippetoe).

comment combining crossfit with stronglifts - both scheduling and weight intensity
If your crossfit gym doesn't have you on a strength program, then ask them for one. If they won't, or they say that just regular workouts are enough, then you've joined a low-quality crossfit gym. Mixing stronglifts with crossfit isn't going to work as soon as you hit weights that are even remotely heavy.
