comment What is the best way to train at the gym for weight loss purposes?
You said almost everything I wanted to say. I would add that as females, we have to be extra concerned with bone density and osteoporosis - heavy squats and deadlifts increase bone density.

comment What is the best way to train at the gym for weight loss purposes?
@Moses Why would anyone want to lose fat and muscle? Or lose weight at the expense of strength? (Other than athletes attempting to stay within a weight class).

@giorgio79 If this question is closed as a duplicate, I believe the question still appears for searchers, but when visitors click on it, they're brought to the other question and its answers.

Are you just talking about a normal bath for cleaning, with warm water, for 5-10 minutes?

comment What is courtesy in a gym?
It seems like the gym is not very organized. Perhaps you could talk to somebody about formalizing some guidlines or schedules to make everything clearer for everyone.

@what, I notice you didn't pick out the "eating to calorie surplus" as an important part, but it is a very important part of this answer.

comment When I bench press, why do my hips sometimes cramp up?
This is re-assuring. It is just very distracting, and happens at the heavy weights where I need the most focus. It doesn't feel like an injury, and isn't affecting deadlifts or squats.

comment When I bench press, why do my hips sometimes cramp up?
Feet on the bench is not allowed during competition, so I'm not going to switch to that. If my issue may be related to IT band tightness, I could stretch that. Even if it's not that, I won't make anything worse. I will post a form video soon to get a better check that I'm not doing something wrong form-wise.

I'm using the back arch because it believed it to be standard powerlifting form. I'm trying to do exactly what Mark Rippetoe directs us to do in this video: youtube.com/watch?v=lBNeeeTId1M
