/plg/ - powerlifting general
Primarily for the purpose of becoming a better athlete on the platform, but all strength sports are welcome!
>You lift. You probably look like you lift. When people come up to you in line at Target, because they see you have muscles, and they ask "hey, how much can you lift?" I know what they mean.
>They do not care about your deadlift.
>Nope. And not a single one of those motherfuckers wants to hear about your squat.
>You can tell them all about that hip-crease and the top surface of your knee and how other fools don't even know about hitting depth like you do and they will nod their heads, but their hearts will be somewhere else.
>They want to know how much you can bench press. That's right, every single normal, non-lifting person on this planet wants just one piece of information from you, once they notice you're jacked. They want to know how much you can bench press. That's it! I mean, why the hell else would you even want to have muscles if not to bench press more weight than anyone else? Right?
>Here's the rub: you can't tell them the truth. This comes back to the reason they are asking the question. I've been answering it for going on twenty years and believe me when I tell you: no matter how strong you are, you are nowhere near as strong as someone they know, and they want to tell you all about it.
Interesting theory. This isn't the case with all of them, though. All of the threads with pictures of Jon Pall are from me, and I'm neither Sean nor banned. But every single one has been deleted without explanation.
I know /plg/ doesn't do much ab work, but I've been reading about stomach vacuums as a mean to strenghten the ''inner'' abs. I was wondering if strenghtening this muscle group would be helpful when bracing. What do you guys think?
even if there were "inner abs", it wouldn't be worth training them because they're evidently not useful in bracing your core for heavy squats and deadlifts if you have to train them by doing stomach vaccums.
Lmfao this is exactly what I was thinking people would say when I made the post.
I have to agree.
I feel as though taking a big dose or doing it too often will make you feel like there's no purpose to lifting.
Top fucking lel
>So, how do you handle this dilemma? You have two choices. Either you deal with some wiener shitting all over your hard work with fables about mighty men you'll never see in real life, or just fight fire with fire and make up a ridiculous fucking lie.
Last time I tripped I had a really peaceful, serene moment out by a lake where I was finally able to kind of wrap my head around why people might believe in God. I was able to take a good look at what I'm doing with my life/how I spend my time too and came out of it studying harder, hitting the weights hard, and actually including a little cardio because I don't want my heart to explode at 38. Moderation, lad.
LSD is always motivating for me, too, but it usually just makes me get the drive to fix glaring problems in my life. Ive never had it make me more motivated in general.
Ive gotta trip in a peaceful setting one of these days. Lately I've been tripping in party settings and it really kills the introspective potential that the drug has.
I mean like concerts and when there are just a lotta people around.
Still kinda sucks tho. Had a bad experience this past weekend watching drunk people be drunk people and seeing all these kids look sickly and worn out from taking fake molly.
I'm gunna stop taking acid at concerts/raves.
Okay, I've been lifting 15 months.
I think it's time for a program.
So far I have been reccomended:
>Russian memeroutine (not quite sure what this means)
I know RTS ain't free and I think CWS charges for his shit. Are any of these cheap/free?
there is a free RTS intermediate program.
There are various juggernaut programs, check our dropbox
definitely free. just google it
same thing, sheiko templates are free @ sheiko-program.ru/forum/
i think its impossible to get knee sleeves tight enough to damage your patellar tendon desu. almost definitely bro science. i wear them every session... but now mine have stretched and i should probably get new ones
Texas looks like shit, as I'd expect from a Rippetoe-endorsed program. Hardly any deadlift volume, power cleans that have no carry over to PL, and like 30% more squat volume than upper body volume.
Sheiko does seem to be a meme, it's just a bunch of templates and not an actual program.
RTS looks great, so does Juggernaut. Since CWS is probably the powerlifter I respect more than any other, I'll go with his and see where it gets me.
How tight do your shoulder blade muscles/rhombids get? I got this tightness deep in my rhomboid muscles, if my bend my neck down or high up i can feel it bad. The only way it feels like i can hit it is if i tear my skin against the corner of a wall.
Your knees will shred themselves until they spontaneously combust and immolate you in the middle of a PR squat.
Definitely not a shitty suit.
I found out I was mere pounds from out totalling the mong.
I exceeded the qualifying total for nationals by almost 220lbs
Hmmm. Maybe if you'd done anything other than 5/3/1...;^)
I forget. Isley just said I was close. I know he only benched like 130kg
>I exceeded the qualifying total for nationals by almost 220lbs
Aren't you a Jr.? Qualifying totals for Canadian Nationals for M-O-U-93 is ~600kg, and for Regionals is 517.5
>I forget. Isley just said I was close. I know he only benched like 130kg
He had a 550kg total.
For juniors it's like 1030 or something. I meant to say almost 200 but phone corrected me.
Also I don't accept my out totalling of you. You were I injured so it doesn't count.
yeah, it's a joke
>tfw missed open qualifying total by 4lbs
I'm hoping to get into a meet this spring so I can qualify for Provincials so don't worry.
Injuries are part of the game, but don't worry, I hope to be pulling ~215kg for reps again later this month, and I'm pretty confident I can get a 200kg squat by Provincials.
My bench is just shit though. I was choked I didn't get 125kg.
So when do I get my complimentary Kaz traps?
>Block pulls 7.5" 585 x 7 x 5
>Block rows 365 x 10 x 3
The end of the world by skeeter davis
I do lsd/mdma two or three times a year, I just make sure that the day after is rest day because it fucks up my sleep and i cant do any lifting the day after because im tired. This is not always the case tho but just a heads up, do em beford tje rest day!
I'll be doing one in July. We can compare then.
you make slight adjustments to texas method, like RDLs on Monday and rows instead of powercleans
i don't know what you mean by templates or actual program. you do it, then you max out, then you increase your max by whatever you hit. There's no set progression just because its based on what you can currently do.
personally i feel like RTS only works for a certain type of person, and i don't like juggernaut. but at your level anything will work desu.
i was 1lb from outtotaling mong
the current "inzer" ones are SO ugly
550 @ 87? something like that.
that's not it. I know that it has a long ass intro, and it is about how the guy won't let himself be happy.
can't remember if it is called happy or sad or what, sorry I can't be more helpful. and thanks for trying.
July is when Provincials are. So let's make that the throwdown if I can get another meet in to qualify.
>the current "inzer" ones are SO ugly
I used to think that until I saw all the other lads at the meet, and I thought "hey, My Inzer sure ain't bad!" Titans, Metal, and Strengthshop are by far the worst.
And then I saw the ladies in the Inzer classics and got damn they looked gooood.
Mine does that too. Just gotta give the crowd what they want, y'know?
Honestly, it's a fucking singlet. They won't give you a performance edge. I bought mine second hand on craigslist. Once you've settled into a weightclass, then drop the money on the one you like the look of the most (and let's all be honest here, that's the SBD - they sexy as fuck).
I got just a plain black one from strengthshop and it's perfect for me. was pretty cheap too
ye that's the one
I've started taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
80kg class here I come.
Really what I love/hate about the Inzer Matman is that it's like the short-shorts of the singlet world. I get to show off my legs, but I make people uncomfortable in my little commercial gym. I like that the SBD has good leg coverage.
The fact that I'm a manlet wearing an xl also helps.
It's both an artsy choice and a concession I make to compromise with my club manager about gym privacy rules.
Also the footage still gets the gist of the lifts in; can still see stuff like depth and bar path.
let's focus on getting into the 93s first
wait really? mine's only a medium
I realize different brands, but you don't seem that much bigger than me
I used to but then my self esteem plummeted because ugly and then I uninstalled.
I'm going to tell Sparkle you're posting shitty videos and get her to tell Dan to look at in a disappointed manner.
He's just salty because he's stuck with a poverty bench, don't mind him.
Can anyone know I use it if they have me on FB?
Gonna be studying abroad and am thinking about using it while there desu but am worried because I heard it's linked to FB.
to keep this plg related: Thoughts on incline dumbbell as a main accessory to bench?
It fit me well even when I was 180lbs back last April when I bought it.
tinder doesn't post anything to your facebook, but iirc all of the photos that you can use have to come from your facebook. so people who see you on there will know, but that's about it.
incline dumbbell seems fine as long as you don't kill yourself with it. I would say keep it pretty ezpz in terms of intensity
really? seems like it fit you pretty well at the meet? it wasn't super loose when you were 30 pounds lighter? that's p nice
>He's just salty because he's stuck with a poverty bench, don't mind him.
I'm sorry for what I said, Joe.
This anon has made me see the way again.
See, we can all be friends.
>mfw the bench rampage resumes tomorrow
>tfw someone appreciates your shitty file name joke
I'm going to pay them to tell you to use a SSB.
I don't k ow if any of you remember me. I posted a month ago about how I we getting oly shoes to help fix my hip impingement. Turns out they worked wonders and my lowbar improved dramatically. So psa to newbies, go get lifting shoes asap, they are amazing. Also, since I can start progressing past 1pl8 again (skipped straight to 1.5pl8 for 3x5 today) I feel squats in my lower back. Right at the intersection of my glutes and back. Is this good or bad. It gets a crazy pump and then stayed sore all day
>start organizing fit girls folder
>over 200 images and webms
that's morrowind daedric stuff, right?
didn't realize morrowind is now considered obscure
unless that's not morrowing ig
Well. I'll give you this then. I've always had trouble with lower back sounding when I bottom out to parallel. But I read some rippetoe advice on active hip and lower lumbar stability and awareness. So today I did a set of superman holds before I started my squats to help me activate the lower lumbar region, and focusing on keeping that area flexed right during my sets was amazing. And ooooooh boy did my glutes kick hard today.
>that's morrowind daedric stuff, right?
>didn't realize morrowind is now considered obscure
Not the guy who said it was, but it is pretty damn old at this point.
Without seeing you squat I don't know if it's an issue or not. Unless there's no shit pain, I wouldn't worry about it.
>morrowind was released 14 years ago
I still play that shit on my PC, as recently as last week. hype af about skywind
you're probably gonna have to ask again in about 12-18 hours when most of the "experts" are on. I doubt many people here know a lot about it because it's not one of the meme routines, although it is RPE based, right? I think that is gonna be one of the hot memes in the next few weeks/months
My main problems with sticking to programs is that I end up adding more and more assistance exercises and the sessions blow out to be really fucking long, then I feel lazy if I drop all the extra shit and try to stick the program as written
idk, it is probably fine. tBh as a novice you can make progress with pretty much anything that isn't batshit stupid
I meant RPE-based stuff, not the PTW program
what on nirn are you doing killing Ra'Virr? I pretty much just use him and the lady across the way as gold supplies whenever I go back to Caius's house to sleep/level/etc
that's not the program's fault lad
just don't go overboard with it.
>I meant RPE-based stuff, not the PTW program
id say no to that too because its too involved, most dont want to read about fatigue percentages
it should become one though everyone can benefit from rpe based training
I'd sell off his inventory to get rich (for that point in the game) and it gave me a house in a convenient fast travel hub. I'd also go to the Dren plantation and kill that dude in the hut with a daedric dai katana. I was a kid, and kids are sociopaths. Besides, khajiit aren't real people.
I will be very happy when I can actually cut rather than just doing periodic recomps when I realise how fat I've gotten.
Fuck being over 6'0 in this sport. 120 is not what I thought I'd be aiming for.
The solution is simple: go into the cut weak as hell. You'll have no strength to lose, and instead get nothing but good feels as you technically get stronger while looking a lot less chunky.
I mean, I've got a long way to go up the food chain before weight class really matters at all(last mock meet was basically 1050@205), but in general I'm not looking forward to the food bills. Especially since I have a physical job and it shoves my calorie requirement through the roof.
Love being able to eat what I want. Don't like having to do that and more.
I went from 226 to 193 bodyweight
Squat stayed 365
Bench stayed 225
Dead went from 455 to 425, but I think that was setup related.
Second cycle is on week 2 now, and I'm running the RP diet at maintenance level. Weight is fluctuating between 191 and 192.5
By not worrying about it, being in a setting where interaction with girls is a thing, and just being the best version of yourself that you can. Eventually that'll resonate positively with a girl and stuff will happen.
The transition from deficit to maintenance to surplus is awesome.
I always say I don't bench - bench is for pussies who only lift casually. The shock, amazement, and shame they feel for not having known something so simple and basic about something they were about to feign knowledge of is tangible. Then if they call you out on it, you can expect they too lift and you can talk shop with them. Learned that one from my cousin at a family party. Dude is like 160lbs and benches over three plates and people constantly pull that shit on him.
Those were the narrow/heels/beltless/paused things I was doing. And it was 445, thank you very much. Gotta count those 10s. Prior to messing around with them, with a comp stance and a belt I was hitting 5s at 500ish (don't remember if it was 495 or 505).
IDK. Not being coy, I just don't know. Hit 615 in wraps back in the late spring/early summer and all my work sets have gotten heavier since then. I've obviously taken a detour into SSB land, but as of early fall I hit 545x2 paused, 495x6 paused, and 495x9 in a set that ended prematurely because the bar was slipping. Since then my schedule and diet improved significantly, and I've gotten stronger across the board. Then, more recently, another favorable variable entered the equation.
I wear the belt differently on squats and deads, and can't be bothered to adjust a lever that often. Used to have a lifting partner that would get stuck in a double prong from time to time, that was funny.
I'll add it to the list of SSB goodness to try, thanks.
I'm pretty stoked for tomorrow's session. I might have to shake up the overhead work soon though, I'm running out of room for reasonable progression on the alphabet soup presses.
i'm deloading this week, think i figured out why my squats been shitty lately, and i'm testing maxes next week, with TSA coaching starting up the week after that. Pretty stoked as well
Do you have a planned stop point for the SSB stuff? i.e. 600x5 or just when you stop progressing?
>do you have a planned stop point?
Yeah, when I outsquat pic related.
I'll see where the 5s take me jumping 10lbs a session and evaluate whether I want to escalate with triples or back off and switch to higher volume once I've run them into the ground. I hate high rep squats though, almost as much as high rep deads. On bench I'll kill volume all day, every day.
>tfw slingamajig sets of 435 x 10 x 5 are slated for tomorrow
>I wear the belt differently on squats and deads, and can't be bothered to adjust a lever that often. Used to have a lifting partner that would get stuck in a double prong from time to time, that was funny.
I have 2 belts, my new 13mm Titan Brahma and my old 10mm Toro. I keep the older one a notch or 2 looser for fat days.
>that pleb taste in both film and literature
off the top of my head, plus most russian lifters start off doing loads of different exercises for a lot of volume before slowly working down to the main comp lifts
bryce lewis has always trained for strength lad. as has jesse norris and i'm pretty sure candito.
Norris was super strong as a teen competitor who competed in ipf worlds, for example. Lewis has been competing for years and years. Candito was a track guy and lifted for carryover. Mark bell is on steroids. Norton does work.
They've always trained for strength. Having a hypertrophy block or bulking or putting on muscle doesn't mean they were lifting for size.
didn't know that desu. but i still don't think that the added hypertrophy aided him much. shit he actually looks like he has MUCH more muscle mass now then he did then, albeit at a higher bodyfat.
>there is only one way to get strong
>you cannot focus on getting strong and gaining mass at the same time, especially as a beginner
>the marginal difference in muscle mass will make an appreciable difference in normal competitors
that's not what i said at all. Yes, having more muscle mass makes you stronger. What i said it specifically training for hypertrophy to pursue bodybuilding likely has had very little positive benefit to his career as a powerlifter. It isn't like he would have not been training during that time, he still would have been training the compounds, eating (more, likely since he is not as lean as he used to be), while also gaining strength if he focused on bodybuilding from the beginning
>>there is only one way to get strong
>>you cannot focus on getting strong and gaining mass at the same time, especially as a beginner
>>the marginal difference in muscle mass will make an appreciable difference in normal competitors
>What i said it specifically training for hypertrophy to pursue bodybuilding likely has had very little positive benefit to his career as a powerlifter.
Well you're horribly wrong, seriously. Coming into powerlifting with high levels of muscle mass already is a giant head start. If you've spent a large amount of time focusing on just getting big then you're not doing yourself a disservice at all. Honestly most beginner powerlifters should spend more time thinking like bodybuilders to start out with.
I'm not saying that muscle mass doesn't increase strength/strength potential, I'm saying there's no need to train like a bodybuilder to gain muscle mass. If you think most beginners should spend two hours in the gym after their basic compounds on isolations for every part of their body to gain mass, then you're wrong. If you think beginners don't gain a lot of mass from doing SS and eating, then you're wrong. If I decided to take a year off powerlifting right now to "fill out my weight class" and gain muscle mass, I would be a worse powerlifter than if I had focused on powerlifting and made muscle gain my secondary goal. I firmly believe that.
you are right
but SS/TM are silly like the anon is saying, and beginners in other, well established strength sports (like WL for example) do actually spend the start of their training career just hammering out technique and doing a ton of assistance to gain muscle mass, I think. At least that's what Avon said, and he reads a ton of books on this shit so I trust him.
>I'm a student
literally translated as
>I'm a pretentious nonce who paid the government £30,000 for a piece of paper which says i can do thing
"excuse me please mate", me, telling you to move whilst you're queuing outside the job centre
It's a matter of emphasis that I'm talking about more than anything. Just think of a lifter's career as block periodised. And remember that hypertrophy remains of some importance throughout a lifter's career, as does getting stronger of course.
Novice: Foundation phase (hypertrophy/technique - develop a physique and skills base)
Intermediate: General strength (and hypertrophy)
Advanced/Elite: Intensity/Realisation (refining and peaking)
I never said to stop powerlifting or not follow a powerlifting program, just to place more emphasis on certain aspects of athlete development at certain stages of your lifting career. IRL most experienced and decent powerlifting coaches do this anyway and pre-Rippetard it was the way powerlifting was done in the West, following in the examples of 80s and 90s era powerlifters like Doug Young, Ed Coan, Kirk Karwoski, etc.
>I'm saying there's no need to train like a bodybuilder to gain muscle mass.
I only actually said you had to "think" like a bb'er, but training like a bb'er helps too, though it's probably best that you let me know what you think "training like a bb'er" means to you because we could just be arguing in circles a bit here. I'm merely talking about doing a lot of varied assistance work after the main lifts with the emphasis on developing a good overall physique, not just choosing assistance and accessory movements for weakpoints or technique improvement.
>If you think most beginners should spend two hours in the gym after their basic compounds on isolations for every part of their body to gain mass, then you're wrong.
No I'm not wrong seriously, nearly every elite lifter I know personally has spent countless hours working "the pump" after their main lifts.
>If you think beginners don't gain a lot of mass from doing SS and eating, then you're wrong.
They gain some mass from SS and eating. They'll gain A FUCKLOAD MORE MASS from lots of assistance volume and eating.
>If I decided to take a year off powerlifting right now to "fill out my weight class" and gain muscle mass, I would be a worse powerlifter than if I had focused on powerlifting and made muscle gain my secondary goal. I firmly believe that.
I never once said anything about taking a year off or quitting powerlifting for a while.
And lifts and weight/height stats? I'm just trying to guage your experience and results because it helps knowing how experienced someone is when you're arguing with them so you can work out if you're just misinterpreting each other or otherwise.
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
MEIN SIDES! MEIN siiiiiides
well you see the thing is he's actually heavily obese which means any muscle he does have (which is little) is covered up by really thick layers of fat
pic related I just put in his stats from his most recent meet (97kg @ 5'7) and this came out
4 pl8 tng yea but most I've done paused was 370 like a year or so ago.
IPF legal pr is 358 but that moved very quick so I'm in a good position to do more.
And idk. I've always had small arms
Hi here's a comprehensive review of 57 studies on BMI as a health marker - there's a reason every doctor on the planet uses it
he's obese and at great risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer etc. he should really cut down if he wants to make it past 30.
I could see if you were at a relatively low bodyfat and weighed a lot
But benchbeta is objectively a giant blob like a beach ball
He is also objectively over the 12-18% healthy bodyfat range of a male human being
I'd place him somewhere around 22% to upwards of 24 or 25%
Im using the 5x5 off the sticky.
Is it good shit?
I feel like its a powerlifting program since im doing like 3 exercises no?
Is this a bad idea?
Getting low back soreness when benching. I try to arch through the upper back and keep my glutes engaged to prevent overarching in the low back. I had some form problems with elbow positioning and bar which I 've worked on and now the bar hits lower than the nipple line and the press feels stronger but I feel all the weight shift from the shoulders to the low back when benching like this. How do I fix it?
'raised BMI is an established risk factor for several causes of death, including ischaemic heart disease,2 stroke,3 and cancers of the large intestine, kidney, endometrium, and postmenopausal breast'
No, I'm just concerned for Joe's health.

Work in progress chummer.
Has the right idea. Plus doing these and trying to build the channel helps keep me from changing programs, because ostensibly some of my subs are interested in my progress through running the Cube method.

What's a good PL routine for somebody who's been training for 1.5 yrs but to due to perma cutting can only s squat and DL 3plt8 for reps (3x5) but bench like 190 for a triple?
can someone find the video where he drops a squat and the bar almost rolls over someone
I'm not excusing him, but not even 105 kg Phil is as strong as Brett Gibbs. Gibbs' record total is higher than that of every single New Zealand lifter all the way up to the +120 weight class. I don't think he's easily beaten even by roiders.
she is getting hotter, has she lost some weight?
His old buddy Alex Lowe is just as bad, if not worse.
>mediocre IPF lifter then...
>literally all of the gear
>abuses and threatens clients with violence when they question his programming

>says he's the best PLer in Australia then pulls out of 3 major comps at the last minute in the space of 2 years
Yeah, but my point was that being weaker than BG even though you're bigger or even on gear doesn't make you a bad lifter. Most people are simply never, ever going to have an 800+ kg total.
How about you deadlift 260kg before critiquing somebody else's 260kg deadlift?
>I have no experience on this subject but I'm an expert on this subject because I read an article online
fucking kill yourself.
Just because somebody is strong, doesn't mean they have good technique dude
>WHERE IS VID OF UR TECHNIQUE
I even said in my post I'm a noob compared to him, but I'm working on it...
you sound like one of those guys who will defend dumb steroid users with 'BUT HE LIFTS MORE THAN YOU SO STFU'
Really bad argument, and really bad overreaction
Also his deadlift isn't even that much higher than mine
Also I'm p. sure I just got baited
>Just because somebody is strong, doesn't mean they have good technique dude
Stopped reading there, you're not gonna be deadlifting 260kg if your form on par of that of a novice lifters. Form efficiency plays a great roll on strength.
>Also his deadlift isn't even that much higher than mine
That means nothing. At such a strong lift the rate of progression is far slower than that of a novice's progression.
So the difference between say 100kg and 160kg isn't too great, however the progression between something such as 200kg and 260kg is very significant and 260kg is thus far more impressive.
Just because you're close doesn't mean you will ever come close to his level, especially with such a retarded critical attitude. It's extremely easy to make critiques over non-existent issues online.
You even openly admitted you're a noob, which further confirms my point that you lack experience and knowledge to accurately critique his form. You're just some fucking retard at a keyboard, as usual.
Glass houses, Nigger.
