>>35638902 >Max acceptable rest time between reps in any heavy compound lift is 2-3 seconds no it isn't just give yourself 45s to complete the set in or something depending on how many reps you're doing
>>35638704 dude, do you. if you're not hurting yourself and progressing in weight do it this way. if you're worried about the time it takes to complete the set then set out to reduce your times by training differently.
>>35638704 If you need 10-20secs that's a bit much. If I can't do another rep in <5s from the previous one I call it a set and stop.
>>35638842 I know a dude whose workouts are all supersets all the time as in db shoulderpress into deadlift into curls. He doesn't even look terribly ripped and does 160kg DL for one rep at the least and 2,5-3 pl8 for 10 reps without touching the weight down (does the full ROM but stops 5cm from the ground). Smoking for 20 years, drinks a ton, and he isn't even serious about his workouts. Not really connected to this thread, except the part about the deadlifts, just amazed at this dude.
>>35639300 If you wanna hear something crazy, I train with the superheavyweight Powerlifting champion of Australia.
He had a 300kg deadlift and 260kg squat after 6 months of training, he smokes inbetween sets, he never does any accessory movements at all, and right before setting a 342.5kg national record squat at a comp, he was chain smoking 3 cigarettes in less than 5 mins, then just calmly walks up to the bar and made it look like nothing.
Dude has the craziest genetics I've ever seen but doesn't even try to maximize his potential
>>35639065 >If you need to take three quarters of a minute break to complete your fucking set, you're doing it wrong. >reading comprehension I'm saying 'I'll try to complete this set of five with 220kg in 45 seconds', not 'I'll do three reps then take a break for 45 seconds in between'
>>35639438 a lot of top strongmen are like that. Loz Shahlei deadlifted 220kg on his first day in the gym, Terry Hollands did something like 260, and Eddie Hall benched 4plate aged 17 having done very little serious lifting. It's mad
>>35639536 https://www.reddit.com/r/Strongman/comments/2sj3xr/we_are_strongman_eddie_hall_and_filmmaker_matt/ Here's the source on Eddie, the others were on TV interviews IIRC so IDK if I can find them
>>35639438 I know man, it's really unfair. I mean I get excited doing 80kg bench 5x5 and my max dl was something like 110, while my current squat is 82.5 5x5. Been training for almost a year, not very seriously and with some 1-2month pauses but still. I know I'm a manlet with shit bone structure but come on. At least my short arms give me an edge on bp.
>>35639555 I always train from a deadstop, but Touch n Go deadlifts work fine for building strength and size, you aren't really cheating yourself out of much, if anything, it just makes it easier to do more reps, which is arguably better for size due to more time under tension.
>>35639588 Read >>35639242 Also what you're saying makes no sense. You will have LESS or the SAME time under tension doing touch and go as doing them properly. You're just trying to defend your cheating.
>>35639643 Im not the anon you are speaking to, but honestly all bodybuilders do touch and go deadlifts when they train for size. Like the anon side, more time under tension (you can go for more reps). Doing them from dead position is better for strength, since you don't rely so much on the reflex (muscles) but you have to use your CNS more
So are you cheating if you train for a different purpose?
>>35639759 Well I'm a DYEL king of manlets, but my deadlift aint too bad (180kg @ 70kg bodyweight). Just do some static holds at the end of your deadlift workouts, or better yet add plate holds/dead hangs twice a week.
>>35639746 Well I need both kek. But dead stop is my ting for those powerlifting gains.
>>35639780 Also, grip is heavily dependent on fatigue, far moreso than other factors. I pulled a 225kg axle without chalk back in September after doing quite a bit of grip work, a week later I pulled a 200kg eleiko bar and it slipped out my hands had three weeks off training due to illness over Christmas, did farmer's walks the other day and got 130kg/hand
>>35639920 You aren't a Powerlifter just because you train the movements, just like you aren't a Strongman if you decide to train like one, or a football player because you decided to do a pickup game.
Just sign up for a meet, get some numbers in and have some fun, you aren't a powerlifter till you've registered a Powerlifting total desu senpai
>>35640009 You'll be fine mang, lots of people have this mentality, just get on the platform, setsome PR's, and get a feel for what meets are like and get some experience, so that when you are strong, you won't make stupid mistakes in meets that could cost you.
Not to mention that you meet lots of likeminded experienced people who can teach you things that'll help you a lot with your lifting
>>35639189 >Do you think standing there with the bar on your back between squat reps is gonna make the next rep easier? Yes actually. An old method of training squats was to do your 10 rep max for twenty reps taking as much rest between reps as needed with a set usually taking three or four minutes
>>35640185 There is no 65 kg weightclass but that's beside the point. Why would you have to stay DYEL if you start competing? Almost every powerlifter that doesn't start off as a fatso climbs through weightclasses as they get stronger/more experience.
