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

comment Does the optimal hypertrophy rep range apply to tired muscles?
Rests longer than 3 minutes are frequently called for in powerlifting and O-lifting, no?

comment Does lifting more than 5lbs really cause females to bulk?
I think any good answer to this question is going to have to, as Stephanie's answer does, address the varying meanings of "bulk". To some it means "any muscle" or "anything not frail", lending women towards anorexia, to others it means "like a bodybuilder", and to still others it means "getting significantly bigger in the shoulders". The latter two give much more leeway in terms of appropriate programming.

I think you're missing two crucial components here: volume and diet. The fact that the weights are heavy is almost irrelevant compared to those two factors. Triples at 90% of 1RM with normal caloric intake is dramatically different re: mass and body comp from 5x5 at 80% of 1RM with a hefty caloric surplus and GOMAD.

comment Useful exercises to increase agility/responsiveness for team sports
@posdef Not all kinds of lifting weights are the same. Most people in the gym are bodybuilding, which is not at all the same as powerlifting or O-lifting (specifically squats, deadlifts, power cleans and snatches).
