comment How does a 5x5 program work on a cut?
Definitely - the SS message boards are filled with people trying to do the program and not eat a bunch as recommended in the book. The answer is always YNTTP (you're not doing the program).

Extra weight can help in most sports with weight classes... certainly in strength and combat sports it seems to be the case (other considerations like endurance aside).

comment My back is weak, how to train carefully with a chin up bar?
It's up to you how you want to frame your question, but I don't consider cycling or swimming to be directly related to strength. I understand that you may be in a "rehab" situation, but generally those are more pertinent to muscular endurance than to strength per se.
