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

comment Mixed versus overhand grip on deadlifts?
@EricKaufman You know, that's a good question. I hadn't thought of that.

comment What muscles are deadlifts meant to target?
@CrescentFresh Wow, that's weird. Maybe they meant to differentiate between a straight back and a slightly arched back? More likely it's just a typo. Good eye!

This might be a good fit on skeptics stackexchange.

Define "eating well". And are you sure you're using the right gears?

comment How old should children be to train with weights?
I didn't downvote. I can't read Finnish and I disagree with the dude's conclusions but it's useful to have this as a research lead.

comment How much stronger can you get as you get fatter?
Your assumption that these guys don't lift is wrong. Check yourself.

comment How old should children be to train with weights?
It's weird to advocate against lifting due to injury risk, considering that injury rates for lifting are lower than most field sports, which are widely recommended for children.

comment What can be the negative effects associated with an overtrained, overdeveloped back?
I think that hyperlordosis would be the problem, but I'm not sure how much problematic hyperlordosis you'd see caused by strength training/bodybuilding, since most big back exercises (deadlifts, back squats) involve anterior stabilization and glute work (which would work against overextension of the back). This is true of upper body pressing work as well (bench requires upper back strength), but I think it's to a lesser degree? I'm not sure.

comment Is doing pull-ups/chin-ups with a backpack full of weights bad?
The more common terminology is 'reps' (repetitions) instead of lifts and 'sets' instead of series.

comment Critique my SL + Greyskull hybrid
Reading your comments, I am now even more sure that you should either do Phrak's GSLP or re-invest yourself in StrongLifts. If deadlifting after rows is an issue then just do rows last on deadlift day. Every other reason you list is better served by the two programs I cite.

@half-pass Thanks for the plug! I'm flattered. :)

comment Why do deadlifts hurt my lower back
@default.kramer There are plenty of checklists, but how do you know which checklist item to address? When I was in your situation a few years ago, I thought I was making Error X, so I applied Fix A, when in fact I was making Error Y, for which Fix A was counterproductive. If you're overextending the lumbar spine then fix it--but we can't know if that's the problem based on your report. We need to see.

Just about the exact question has been asked on martialarts.SE.

Rip gives wacky advice on a number of training issues, but for an overview of the science he's one of the most accessible and to-the-point.

comment How should I train to increase my push-up maximum from 20 to two sets of 100?
@JeelShah I think off-days are a good time to take a walk, or do some yoga, or work on mobility. But push-ups are a good second-tier option too, as long as they don't interfere with the training days.

@Ron Practical Programming will explain the generalized philosophy. I think it's the best fit for your situation.\

@Ellocomotive You're absolutely right, I wasn't clear about it but I meant in the short term.

comment Why does Dmitry Klokov stagger his feet?
As I understand it, A) one is acclimated to their gait, and using a new one stresses different tissues, and B) a suboptimal gait is often caused by a weakness or immobility, so improving it pushes back against the long-standing problem.
