>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.

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?

Are knee sleeves worthwhile? If they help, and I can use them in meets, I should probably pick some up.

>>35685920
As true as it gets.

>>35685954
Probably next to worthless compared to ab wheel or weighted planks. Look up RKC planks and do them in that style.
>>
>>35685954
stupid. disregard.

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.

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.

Hmmm. Interesting.

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 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
>>
>>35687391
I'd think you'd get bursitis before tendinitis from excessive pressure
>>
>>35687364
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.

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.

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 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.

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).

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.

And ooooooh boy did my glutes kick hard today.

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

Sort of, there's also an 'autoregulated' version that uses a fatigue system instead of a set amount of sets

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 [email protected]), 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.

Any recommendations for my first belt? Are all belts fine for competing? I know it can't be wider than 4 inches. Thanks.

>>35689378

I'd suggest getting a 10mm single prong of some decent brand. 13mm is technically 'better', but much more of a pain to break in and not every fed allows that thickness.
>>
>>35689378
Best belts, Inzer, Titan, and Pioneer all make good stuff, as do a lot of other companies, I'm sure. 13mm single prong.

I don't see any rules about thickness of the belt. Only width cannot be more than 4 inches.

13mm is the max allowed in the majority of feds, you might occasionally come across special snowflake rules, but in general that's the rule.

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.

jesus lad. any idea of a 1rm backsquat? 650?

>>35689622
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.

>>35689611
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.

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.

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.

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

>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.
>>
>>35690587
>Increased muscle mass therefore increased strength potential hasn't helped him?
>implying powerlifting itself isn't the best way to gain muscle mass as a drug free lifter
>>
>>35690725
... "No"
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.
>>
>>35690793
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.

Isn't tearing something down not the opposite of erecting?
>>
>>35690769
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.
>>
>>35690973

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

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%

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?

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.

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.

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
>>
>>35693287
>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.
