comment What improvements can I make to my workout?
@Josh I really encourage you to read about program design. Yes, those additions (even if they're done with dumbbells) would be a huge improvement. One problem with dumbbells, though, is that you might quickly run out of weight to use on squats and deadlifts (your heaviest dumbbells might become too easy).

comment Muscles Hurt While On Stronglifts 5x5
Why do you recommend isolation, rather than form correction or developing the required muscles as part of the full movement? Why do you recommend an aesthetic based strength program?

The answer will be different if it's a beginner bodybuilder, a beginner powerlifter, an intermediate bodybuilder, or an intermediate powerlifter.

comment Best way to work out abdominal muscles without hurting spine
@mchlfchr Correct. The quote doesn't say all isometric exercises. (Or, did you mean my last comment? Sure, if you do the plank incorrectly, you can hurt yourself. That's a good point.)

comment How come some people get muscle soreness so much easier than others?
@LegoStormtroopr But don't we act based on what the current version is? The single answer is based on the current version, for example.

@LegoStormtroopr Are you seeing the same question I'm seeing? The question is about muscle soreness.

comment What happens if I substitute different exercises for my warm-up sets?
Do you think the lack of focus on hamstrings during LegoStormTrooper's modified warm-up could lead to hamstring pulls? I have found that those are the first thing to get tweaked if I haven't warmed up properly.

comment How to combine running and squating within the week so that stress on the knees is reduced?
This video (from about 2:14 onwards gives some examples of hip mobility work). Here's another good set. Again, not sure if this is what you need, but a lot of people do. Worst case, it'll just waste your time.

Plank is an example of an isometric abdominal exercise that is designed for ab muscles and will not hurt your spine.

Well, it's not zero stress even for perfect squats, so you're not wrong to ask this question. Slight deviations from your ideal shouldn't be causing discomfort, though. Consider adding some hip and IT band mobility work to help get past any discomfort you have (I'm basing that suggestion solely on what's most common, not anything specific about you).
