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

comment How should I breathe when lifting?
Better yet, could you add sources or references to this? I'm off hunting for some on my own, but whatever you have would be helpful.

What's the rate of these hernias and vomiting and passing out? And how much were they lifting (and how much do they lift normally)? And what's the rate of injury to their backs when they lift heavy while breathing instead of valsalva-ing? We can't evaluate these risks without that info.

Third workout total, or third workout of this week? If the latter, how many weeks in?

comment Exercises that can replace squats?
@Moses Aha, that's clearer for me. I agree that the back squat hits the entire chain. I was stuck on your implication that other exercises somehow don't recruit the posterior chain. I am also partial to the idea that the back squat is a kind of a jack-of-all-trades with regards to the posterior chain. This causes people to use it as well as not use it.

comment How do I find the names of gym exercises?
It fits, but doesn't really describe the relationship between you and him. Is he working with you 1-on-1 for the whole workout? Does he give you a plan and have you go off and do it solo? Do you train in a group? Does he do the stuff alongside you?

comment Gaining without workout
Gaining weight without working out might not be possible, is likely harder, and might be bad for your situation. See this answer for what I recommend instead.

@Moses It's not sufficient cause for a downvote, but I don't understand how a deadlift (or clean, or sprint, or hip thrust, or any other hip-extension exercise) doesn't sufficiently load or activate the posterior chain.

comment Supplemental exercises for breaking an overhead press plateau
@Moses Am I reading you right that the minimum increase on your press was 10 pounds? That would most definitely cause problems. Most people rely on 2.5 to 5 pound jumps. As for being a hardgainer, maybe focusing on total intake rather than meals per day would help. GOMAD?

comment Supplemental exercises for breaking an overhead press plateau
@Moses Thanks for the edits. There are still some questions unanswered, but this helps. I am now more convinced that insufficient eating is the problem. Further, Berin's answer--particular the second bullet point, and his suggestion to just do 3x5--is spot on.
