Ok, so I used to do powerlifting in high school, but have fallen out of it since.I want to get back on that shit bros.

I'm back in decent weightlifting shape now, but am I too old to start gaining again at 26? Like, is there too much of a work input gap between me and the guys that didn't stop after hs?
>>
>>35608566
yeah if you try lifting now your body will shut down and you'll die and your joints will also explode on top of dying

You could self prescribe some TRT and gain like a 18 year old
>>
>>35608588
I've been lifting steadily for about 8 months now. I meant in the proportional sense, like could I still compete to win? I'm trying to decide if I want to actually pursue comp powerlifting again and I don't think I want to do it if I don't have a shot at winning my weight group.

Unless you're a complete genetic freak, you're not winning your weight class at any decent meet regardless of when you start.

You can start late and be damned good (quite a few guys only take up PLing after college, sometimes years after, when they've lost their main sport) but winning really isn't a good motivation in this sport. Very few people will do it and its not like you get anything for that.

I dropped the sumo pulls from the last round since they didn't seem particularly useful. I might throw in some snatch grip shenanigans or light paused deads since everyone's raving about them. On the down side, my hamstrings tend to cramp like a motherfucker after these sessions, I should probably do something about that.

Not unless I feel like it's worth putting time into, which honestly isn't very often. Only people I've really done specific stuff like that with are people with joint issues.
I'm sure it's a good idea, but when I have 30-60 min with someone once a week and I need to make sure the days we don't meet go well, things like that don't tend to take precedence.

But I've only been training for about 8 months so I may learn better to incorporate those sorts of things where they might be appropriate. Sorry I'm not quite sober and tend to ramble.

I'm not on an actual program, just a PROM setup loosely based off of an article I read about Bob Peoples' and Don Reinhoudt's deadlift training. I've got stacks of 3/4 inch mats, I start at 9 inches, which puts me just slightly below the knees, and strip a mat off each time, keeping weight/reps/sets the same.

Gonna be SO fatigued.

Actually a little grateful, as this gives me a couple weeks to ease back into sumo with a bunch of reps and time spent stretching and rolling tight shit before having the heavy pulls.

>>
>>35612072
Just do them after the main lifts. If you're doing one of the 3 day routines, one of the mods on the forum suggested adding a 4th day with some OHP, shoulder work (nothing too serious) and back work. I suggest checking that place out as it has the answer to almost any question.
>>
>>35612072
Replace your OHP with bench work.
If you want to OHP do it at the end of your workout.
>Powerlifting
>>
>>35612072
>Where do I add them? To end of the workout?

Just add them in with the other assistance work. Superset chins and bicep work with chest and tricep work. Do rows on deadlift days.

>And what abou OHP? It is my best lift and I want to do it as much as possible.

Nobody gives a fuck about your OPH in powerlifting but if you really do then just do it as assistance work once or twice a week in place of pressing or tricep work.
>>
>>35612088
Or just do a 4 day cycle even...
>>
>>35612072
OHP shouldn't be a priority
do it as assistance if you want but its probably better to just bench more
>>
>>35612072
why don't you stop trying to make a different programme look like SS/TM and actually do SS/TM

When I was a beginner OHP helped me get to 2pl8 bench, when you're so weak that you can't do significant volume on the main lifts, accessory work is more useful imo.

>>
>>35612113
>so weak that you can't do significant volume on the main lifts
I don't think that's a thing
>>
>>35612113
Meh. In terms of powerlifting novice programs which give equal balance to pressing and benching just leave you with shit benches. OHP is great assistance no doubt but you need to place more emphasis on benching if you want to get decent gains with bench pressing.

TLDR: another reason SS/TM suck dick for powerlifting.

>>
>>35612132
SS/TM were never considered powerlifting routines. You can add cuntloads of benching if you want though since you can do some form of it all three days, keeping ohp as an assistance lift. I think they're pretty good for the average person who just wants to get stronger.
>>
>>35612132
>
What difference does it make. If you are doing ss or tm without a powerlifting focus you haven't been training very long. Beginners can do virtually anything and get stronger
>>
>>35612165
>>implying either was created for powerlifting

No, implying neither should be considered powerlifting programs... but they often are even in their base form.

>>implying their aren't bench focused templates for both

Not even discussing these, only the official templates. I've written out a multitude of bench focused variations of both for novice lifters myself but erring from the templates is still criticised by the creator regardless of it's flaws in terms of PL.

>>implying benching 3x/week would have make your bench not so shitty

It'll improve most novice's bench numbers significantly faster, as would extra hypertrophy assistance too. But my bench? I'm just lucky SS and Ripp weren't around when I started lifting. I trained like a bb'er, got big muscles and a big bench followed.

>just another kid poorly regurgitating bad advice.

No not really, I'm not a kid and my advice is quite sound.

And for how long am I supposed to rest between the sets?
>>
>>35612189
>>35612222

No not really, they work to a degree but they're still pretty inefficient in general. Beginners need to spend time developing technique with sub-maximal weights and building muscles. SS and TM are both so PR driven (daily and weekly) and minimal in volume that they neglect both aspects of athlete development significantly. Most novices would be better of doing a more bb'ing styled routine to begin with but still using the full-body split and aiming for weight progression as a shared focus with technique and hypertrophy.

I speak mostly from a powerlifting aspect here but the logic is really the same for most novice recreational lifters. The only time I would suggest SS or TM as useful would be if the athlete is already participating in another sport like football where their weights training can't affect their performance on the field, but this was the original purpose of the Bill Starr 5x5 routines that Ripp based SS on anyway. Yet for some reason he totally detuned the volume and then said you shouldn't do SS and play a sport at the same time. In short Ripp's a retard.
>>
>>35612301
As long as you need but 2-5mins would be my minimal recommendation. That being said I can take 10-15mins between squat sets sometimes.
>>
>>35612277
I think I'm rounding a bit. It feels impossible to stiff leg it with a flat back so I think I just end up doing basically normal SGDLs, I borderline squat down to the bar.

>>35612238
>they often are even in their base form.
there's nothing inherently wrong with either in terms of powerlifting. just because it doesn't specify doing a massive bench arch, doing sumo or using bench as the only pressing movement ever - doesn't mean it's not good for getting people strong in the lifts.

>Not even discussing these
they are official. they are in the books. you think Rip wrote the one vanilla programme thats posted everywhere and sold a whole book on it?

>It'll improve most novice's bench numbers
it would for a certain period of time, before the novice can't manage heavy bench 3 times a week - at which point a lighter pressing movement has to be put in the middle of the week (ohp). this is something talked about in the book which you refuse to read yet want to criticise.

Considering /smg/ is ded I may as well post this here
Did farmers walks today for the first time in a while, initially intended to do a few sets of 120kg for 20m. I did a couple and it felt pretty easy going so I upped it to 125 (my old PR), and that also felt easy-ish so I plonked 130 on and went. Got about 15m with it feeling okay and then I felt a ripping pain on my right hand, I dropped them and two of the callouses on my right hand had ripped off taking a fair bit of skin with them. Hurt like a motherfucker and bled quite a lot at first, but it's not too bad now. Apart from that I'm happy with the session, if my callouses hadn't come off I'd have had the 130.

I didn't say that it doesn't work... just that there are more efficient ways of developing as an athlete. Pre-ripp powerlifters did shitloads of bodybuilding from day 1, and in the earlier days a lot of them were bodybuilders. Russian powerlifters came through the Russian athlete development system that used a multi-disciplinary approach from an early age where athletes developed their physique, conditioning and skills with multiple sports and forms of training. But if you wanted to do SS then good for you, and hell if you're training just for recreational fun the do whatever the fuck you want.
>>
>there's nothing inherently wrong with either in terms of powerlifting. just because it doesn't specify doing a massive bench arch, doing sumo or using bench as the only pressing movement ever - doesn't mean it's not good for getting people strong in the lifts.

I'm not referring to any of these things in the slightest...

>they are official. they are in the books. you think Rip wrote the one vanilla programme thats posted everywhere and sold a whole book on it?

Well yeah he kinda did... and well, because of the limitations in terms of volume progression that both Ripp and Lascek espouse, even with increase bench frequency TM still sucks ass. Any high volume variations are going way off the reservation.

>it would for a certain period of time, before the novice can't manage heavy bench 3 times a week - at which point a lighter pressing movement has to be put in the middle of the week (ohp). this is something talked about in the book which you refuse to read yet want to criticise.

I've read the book, numerous times. A lighter bench variation would be more useful, and this could easily be followed by some pressing too.

>>calling your own advice sound whilst being criticised
>the trait of all intelligent people.

Calling my advice sounds while being criticised by someone who is just parroting Rippetardisms is perfectly sound.


>>Most novices would be better of doing a more bb'ing styled routine to begin with

Not trolling at all. Totally cereal.

>>35612435
No, 2.5-3hrs is quite common actually...

You can split the sessions up if you have time constraints but it's otherwise Boris recommends keeping the full rest days in between.

I remember when Topkek100 first invited me round his house, he was this 6"1 twink in middle school who weighed like 90lbs, everyone use to take to the piss out of him so he tried to make friends by inviting people round for a sleep over
I thought it would be funny to go over and rob the little twink, unfortunately I was the only one who showed up. I needed a piss and asked topkek mother where the bathroom was, I almost died of laughter when she led me into a cold room with a stone floor & walls scraped of paint and pointed to the shit stained floor and said squat down and poo there, I asked her is she had a toilet and she said no and that I needed to poo on the floor
I had serious bad diarrhea from eating topkeks curry earlier, so I bent down near the walls and sprayed as much as I could on the wall, topkeks mother then came and sprayed the mess with a hose, and the hose water literally looked like it had shit in it. The shit water went down this drain in the centre of the room
I later asked for some water and his mother showed me to this tap outside and told me to cup my hands and collect the water, I asked her to show me first and watch as she put her mouth under this rusty blackened tap and turn it on ONLY to have shit water pour into her mouth. I laughed so hard watching little peanuts clump onto the edges of her mouth, I then said I wasn't thirsty anymore and topkeks mother showed me back inside
Eventually I asked topkek where his valuables were (so I could steal them) & he took me to his bedroom and when he opened it all I could see was broken base units & laptops around the room, at one end was a line of phones, which topkek explained was for his job at tech support, & the other end was this crappy dell desktop with the case open and a old white oscillating fan blowing onto the CPU which had no heat sink
I asked what that computer was for & he told me he ran a website which lured people in so he can install malware onto their computer & sell their Information

Well yes I guess 20 years is a few years training myself, and more than a few of those spent training others too if you must know. I have tonne of logical reasoning too, a large amount of it being that Ripp's logic is pretty fucking awful and flies in the face of most decent strength training literature, especially when it comes to his minimal dose approach to everything.

>you like to think changing a heavy ohp for a light bp would be better - but you have no reasoning other than
>i think its so
>and claim it'll revolutionise people's bench press. the thing is - it won't, and it hasn't.

It will and it does. Bench loves thrives on volume and frequency for muscle, strength and technique development. All lifts do, but I think bench does the most.

do any of you ever worry about blowing out your joints and being completely fucked in the long run, never to achieve your PL goals?
also had a laugh at this graph when I realised women took the lump sum as far as attractiveness goes while men went with the annuity.

I just scratched my ass like you sometimes do, and I got a whiff of something, so I checked my underpants in the men's room and there was a shit stain on them
I then wiped my ass with toilet paper and it's as if I forgot to wipe my ass the last time I took a shit and just put my clothes on - but the thing is I didn't even take a shit today and I just showered this morning. I had to take my underwear off and hide it at the bottom of the bin
This makes no sense, did I shit myself without realizing it? My stomach feels absolutely fine no problems

I was just told by a physical therapist in the gym that my knees were pointing too far out on my front squat. He tole me to keep my feet and knees pointed more forward and when I did so I almost fell over.

I am a manlet with lanklet legs so I have always had to put my feet out to around 30 degress and really track my knees out to hit depth while keeping back perfectly upright.

Was he right?

If you don't mind, just humour me with your e-stats, particularly years training, lifts vs bodyweight, and years spent competing.

>I'm glad you're using that "tonne of logical reasoning"

That Ripp's ideas are contrary to established strength sports training literature isn't logic? Well fuck, call me illogical.

I've already mentioned that his method is too low dose and has insufficient focus on hypertrophy and technique and too much on daily/weekly PRs. The names I mentioned support the opposite.

>your contribution can be summed up with
>hurr durr it should be more volume tho cuz sheiko

Actually no it's...
>hurr durr more volume drives hypertrophy, work capacity and technique development which in terms provides a better basis for strength development and progression

>and I will no longer take part in humouring it.

Well whatever, I really should find something better to distract me than arguing with faceless rippetards on the internet anyway.

knees directly forward places the most stress on the knees and lends itself to hip impingement.

this depends on how severely your knees were tracked outwards, but they should definitely be pushed out

Why does sheiko have so many block pulls? Would I be missing out on anything by replacing them with deficit deadlifts?

>>35613476
>That graph shows men are moronic
not really, what is attractive to men stays the same, i.e. signs of good health, fertility, good genetics etc. all of which are at their peak in women in their early twenties.
For women attraction is much more complicated and dynamic. as well as the same things that make women attractive to men, women are also attracted to success, social dominance, the ability to provide for a family and a handful of other factors that are slipping my mind.

Sheiko breaks deadlifts into 2 parts. Although most of his atheletes pull sumo, people have made great conventional deadlift gains on it.

You really should.

If you spent half as much time lifting as you do arguing menial details, then you'd probably have broken 350 wilks by now.

Lol.
>>
>>35613564
I'm aware of that. I'm looking to modify the deadlift portion of sheiko a little as I was unable to complete the full deadlift workouts. I feel that the block pulls were creating more fatigue than they are worth.

Your mileage may vary, and I don't know how many rest days you want or where you want stuff like rows, pullups, and pulldowns.

I don't have experience squatting on the same day as deadlifts and vice-versa. I can hack 5x10 @ 60% after my working squat sets, but I've never tried deadlifting first. Proceed with caution.

Squats: 455 felt like shit because I moved slowly and buried it. worked up to 475 anyways because I knew I could do better. Left knee and right front delt are bugging me today. Pretty sure its my nervous system being a douche trying to make me stop like it does every couple weeks.

Front squats: delt pain made front rack damn near impossible. Hit 315x1.

Gonna come back after class and try to front squat again before my pressing work. I'm never sore for more than 2-3 hours after I lift, so I'm wondering if my phantom pains will go away or move to somewhere else in the same time frame.

hard to tell with the shirt, lad.

but 30% sounds pretty damn high. your legs and arms look decently lean and it's HIGHLY unlikely you've got 38kg of blubber on your torso, I mean 38kg of fatty meat wouldn't even fit in a space the volume of your torso. and that isn't even pure fat

*source, I worked as butcher for several years and am guesstimating the volume of your trunk

188cm. thats what I was thinking. figured i'd poke my head in and ask. the alternative (written in the diet) is to consider what i've been doing a hard day, which maybe my perception is skewed butt i really don't think they've been hard days. the most intensive thing i've done was hit a 405 front squat and cardio, and the hard days have an increase of like 800 kcals. I feel that might be too much for a 1000kcal deficit i'm trying to hit, so i thoguht maybe my BF% was off enough to put me at the akward stage that "moderate" and "hard" days don't cover.

>>35614663
end of 2012 i think?

I started with just doing 5x5 on everything.

>>35614671

kek. when you say it like that that makes a lot more sense. I'm just used to assuming i'm fat as fuck

>>35614686
>>35614712
hmm. there seems to be a consensus of closer to 25%

I'm really glad I asked this, i just assumed it was about 30% long ago and never thoguht about it again.

>>35614709
Yes. I can squat almost 2 times as much as I bench. Or if it helps you understand better almost 4 times as much as you squat. Which is a ratio I like either way, so whatever.

>>35614753
Norsie, I'm really interested in your level of progress. I think I saw on PLG (I'm terrible at navigating it, it sounds odd the layout just throws me off) that you have a 600 squat. I've had a few 600+ squatters tell me that I will squat 600 if I wanted it. I do want it. What did you do to get there? Did you ever get injured, was it smooth sailing. Very curious. Either way I will just keep doing my thing until I get it but it's interesting to hear how it was for you.

This before every workout. I do basic resistance band work before my upper body days, and I think it takes approximately eight to ten minutes.

kek. i miss smoking weed. Its sort of lost its appeal unfortunately.

>>35614832
its probably the most uninteresting and unintuitive thing you'll ever hear.

yeah, i squat 600, and i basically had NO real method of going there.

I started with 5x5 shit and got to a sloppy ass 500 lb squat, then broke it down to try and fix my squat. never did fix it.

Did my first poerlifting meet, i think i squatted 451 lbs @ 110 kg (old weightclasses) , benched 286 and deadlifted 606. pretty pathetic lel

but from there on i was absolutely HOOKED. I got to 110 from 145 kg over the course of the last 2 years, and for the first time ever I allowed myself to bulk like a fucking mad man. I spent that summer working at a hardware store doing almost exclusively physical labor (i worked inf looring and i stocked shelves and loaded carpet, vynal, hardwood flooring etc into customers cars)

I literally used my job as cardio, and i had a CRAZY fucking high energy flux. i would eat an entire 3000+ kcal bag of trail mix at work almost every day, on top of lunch and dinner usually.

over that summer, i went from 110kg to about 130 kg body weight, and my deadlift went from 600 to 675, my squat from just under 500 with wraps to 585 with wraps, and my bench went from 330ish to 375

and thats pretty much where the progress stopped.

Squat was stalled at 585 w/ wraps, and then i went from squatting once a week to squatting once a week + 2 front squat sessions a week + eating a retarded amount of food. squat blew up. in the next 4-5 months it went from 585 w/ wraps to 655 with wraps pretty easily. then I peeled the wraps off for comps and managed a 600 lb squat in competition in february of 2015. I also had a magic deadlift session where i finally pulled 700 lbs, which i also later hit in the same competition as the 600 squat.

And now, here i sit. one year later and the only thing i've done is get fatter and weaker -_-

For that, I have over training to thank...sp-spasiba boris....

How I figured it'd be. That's my thing, then. I'm just gonna keep doing my thing, slowly get better at programming/form, and over time as my work capacity goes up I'll just keep eating more and more (as much as I need). Thanks, buddy.

Do you think staying active like that was a huge benefit? I feel like even just walking around I feel much better and I shouldn't be sedentary outside of the gym. I think I will join Home Depot. Or Sear's.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.

its unfortunate, but its true. there is NO GREATER FUCKING FEELING THAN BULKING.

god, it seriously feels like what you would expect steroids to feel like. weights flying up all over the place, you always feel satisfied after a heavy or high volume session... fuck.

>>35615147
good luck friend. If i had any advice, i would say keep doing what you're doing, keep eating but doin't go over board - just a 500 surplus is fine

definitely spend lots of time working on proficiency. its worth it

and if you stall in squat, consider adding something. one more set @ 80%, one more whole squat day like i did, etc

>>35615189
they're garbage on me. All my fat is exclusively on my stomach so they always calculate weird shit with a very high variance

>>35615193
actually yeah. Its funny, I personally noticed that the more active I was over all, the more I could eat but also the better I felt. I made that correlation early on myself, and then a while back Gnucks put out an interesting article about lean mass retention being correlated with a group that had higher net energy flux vs the sedentary control who trained similarly.

I still think there's a generally good thing to be said about being more active in general as long as you're keeping nutrition and sleep on point

This is definitely what I'm doing then. I noticed as well that when I'm moving a lot the creaks and cracks in my bis/knee go away. After front squats my left knee (which almost always cracks) hasn't at all. I know throwing mobility work on top of that should make me golden. I take 5 grams of creatine/ 3400 mg of fish oil on top of 3,500+ calories. I'm not too smart about joint stuff and really wanna make that a priority. Anything else besides activity you've done to keep joints healthy and them stronger? I know smart programming and consistent steady progress should help them, too. I think.

nope. I have those sorted out thank goodness. I think I am going to, like i said earlier, start a separate stretching day to get a little more groin mobility though.

>>35615289
it seriously sickens me. THIS is the feeling I fell in love with, and now that i'm realizing I can't just fucking do this any more i get instantly depressed and almost don't even want to lift any more. I think I'm getting over it a little bit at a time, but thinking
>i used to just fucking eat and fucking lift and fucking get huge
now i have to

Anyone else feels like they somehow adjust the strength / energy of oneself in a lift towards the rep goal?

Like, I do 5 reps of bench at x (challenging) weight and 5th feels pretty fucking hard and slow.

Then I AMRAP the same weight and finish with like 9-10 where the 5th was super easy and fast.
