/PLG/ - powerlifting general
Anyone here from Toronto know any good powerlifting coaches?
My friend at 136 went 265/240/425, but wants some coaching.
Are there even any good powerlifting gyms? The guy is self taught. OWF gyms we found are way out of the way.
>he looks 30
>can't believe they let him compete in Ungdom
>Our regional refs would not allow this. They even gave a guy a warning for adidas socks.
Your refs are outta line:
>(a) They may be of any colour or colours and may have manufacturer’s logos
Well that violates the new swearing on the platform rule. Socks and shoes can be whatever manufacturer they want, and can be just plastered with logos. Nothing refs can do about it.
Hahaha wait, they changed the size limits:
The logos or emblems of manufacturers not on the “Approved List of Apparel and Equipment for Use at IPF
Competitions” nor on the addendum of approved logos or emblems established by this rule “Sponsor’s Logos”,
may be worn only on t-shirts, shoes or socks, where the logo or emblem is printed or embroidered and is no more
than 5 cm x 2 cm in size.
Technically I think this makes Romaleos non IPF legal
The inspection ref didn't even look at my stuff after I pulled out my SABOs. He just started asking questions about them and said they are cool then passed me. Even though my wraps aren't legal.
Yeah, the inspection table passed a bunch of crossfitters with adidas singlets at my meet. Guess he knew they wouldn't be competitive anyway.
It's as close to a 10/10 ass on a White girl I have ever seen.
isn't it annoying when this happens (happens to me all the time lol)
>boss is like 29 and super fucking hot
>went on maternity leave and just got back last week

Fuck me lads
Former bulgariananon. Wasn't having fun anymore with daily squatting, it became a chore. Still squatting every training day, which is 4x per week, because I'd be retarded to ditch high frequency.
114 days. Might do every day again to peak at some point.
A bunch of nagging stuff during the course of it. Surprisingly nothing in the last week or two. Here's a list of things that were intermittently mad at me during my time:
Right front delt
Both knees (only when my quads were sore, go figure)
Left hamstring, no pain, just felt like it had a pump randomly throughout the day
It's worth mentioning it was never more than one or two of those things at a time.
Only real injury was when I raped my SC joint by locking out too hard and making the bar bounce like 8 inches off my back in November.
I just wasn't enjoying it. I could have gone on, but I love lifting, and want to keep it that way.
On day 1 my 1rm was 455, highest I hit was 520.
Stalemated 545, and buried 5pl8 atg also.
För helvete mannen, varför postar du på fit? Btw, vad tycker du om SD? Vet att du kommer från stockholm, huvfudstaden är ju helt smockfull med berikare nufötiden. vad tycker du om det?
Btw, hälsa isabelle att hon har en sjukt nice röv, hade gärna if u catch my drift
She could get it every day and twice on Sundays.
I'm disappointed anon.
My last deadlift day I did facepulls and low-seated rows. Sometimes I do chinups, lat pulldowns, and Pendlay rows on my dynamic bench day.
tl;dr I do two accessories on deadlift day, and sprinkle them around squat or dynamic bench.
Doesn't seem like any of those wouldn't happen through "regular" lifting tho, tBh.
Vertical and/or horizontal pulls every day (3x/week). Either myoreps, rest-pause, or just some sets of whatever reps. I can't be bothered putting too much effort into the programming, I just do what I feel like there and then.
What are we training today?
I'm doing this and some more back work. Fourth day in a row of bench and back work. Really enjoying this bro-ie shit
New squat cycle started today, and I used knee sleeves for the first time. I liked the sleeves.
1x5 @ 75%
1x5 @ 80%
1x5 @ 85%
5x10 @ 60%
4x15 hamstring curls
I'm not happy with the last two reps on the last set @ 85%, the reps felt sloppy
Just a lofty pr goal. I know I'm due for one so I picked a pretty big goal.
Sitting fucks me up big time
Do you not have a ghr at your gym?
very light bench and light deadlifts. Only possible difficulty is gonna be having to use double overhand because the wrist I usually supinate for mixed grip is fucked atm.
afterwards I'm getting ready for a two day backpacking trip with a lad, his gf and his gf's qt friend.
What are your bist binch variations? My sticking point is an inch or two above the chest, so I'm looking for more variations. Currently doing spoto press and incline bench (the latter of which isn't doing shit for my bench and needs to be replaced).
I guess I've found it, then.
I do, too. I've been doing that as well, just as an accessory for dat dere pump work. I'm not sure if I want to do it for max effort stuff, though.
redownloaded GIMP guys
still ended up using MS paint for like half of it rofl
What does that even mean, help you off chest?
Basically everyone has the sticking point around one inch above chest - with weight you can't bench.
What happened after you started doing long pause bench? Your sticking point changed or what?
And even then, how is it better or why does it matter where the sticking point is? I don't get it.
we need a "I wish I was at Y doing X" meme of filip
this pic preferred
If he can lock out 435 but only press 345 off his chest he can only bench 345.
Then he works his bottom alot and can now get 365 off his chest, he can now bench 365 from strengthening his bottom. But his bottom is still the sticking point because he can lock out 435.
that's lifting weight m8.
effort is not linear through the lift, the shorter the lever arms in the lifts (be it the squat, the bench or the deadlift), the easier the motion is
you can rack pull more than you can deadlift off the floor. it is not because you are 'weak' off the floor and strong from above the knee - the movement is just simply easier. and doing deficit deads or something don't 'train strength off the floor' necessarily - you just got stronger.
You mean like literally everyone, he can lockout more than he can get off his chest?
What a miracle.
The solution to this is that you need to become stronger at the bench - by be benching.
Absolutely nothing proves or indicates that pausing on the chest for a long time would help with that.
>max squats and bench day today on Sheiko
>havent hit anything over like 85% in months
FEELING UNCONFIDENT LADS
Gonna OD on some C4 and kill it I hope. Gotta wait another hour hnnnnng
I can confirm I am no ginger. But my eating and sleeping has been wacky all this time, I may be the first man to fail Boris. Currently trying to roll/stretch my hip pain away so any one with some good hip openers post away
So spending time in a certain position automatically makes you stronger in that position, or what?
If you do very long pauses you obviously can only do that with less weight.
Who says you don't have better results doing it with more weight and a competition pause?
>But if I can't get 385 off my chest at all, yet if I can move it when it's at the top my top still isn't stronger?
the top and bottom of what you child?
it's pointless to refer to the "top" and "bottom" of a bench, it's one fucking continuous movement
you're stronger at locking out quarter/half reps, not the """""""""top"""""" of a bench
Spend 2-4 months hammering the top half of the bench press through boards or whatever
You'll still make full bench gains even though you worked your supposed strongest part of the movement
>So spending time in a certain position automatically makes you stronger in that position, or what?
>If you do very long pauses you obviously can only do that with less weight.
the objective is to become stronger at long pauses, ie having to start with 70%x3 and working up to 85%x3 or some shit
>Who says you don't have better results doing it with more weight and a competition pause?
the body responds well to novel exercises, you can't just hammer the comp movements all the time
>my top still isn't stronger?
the same muscles are being used, generally speaking.
those muscles can exert more force on the weight in that position, compared to at the bottom of the lift.
the same way holding a weight at arms length is difficult, yet holding it close is easy - you are not literally 'stronger' with arms closer to the body, it is just easier to hold the weight.
so, using that logic to say you are 'weak off the chest' because you can lift less weight there is just a logical fallacy and asking how to train it is useless. git strong.
Shitloads of lifters who've implemented paused work (as an accessory, done AFTER and ALONGSIDE the regular lifts). You're trying to make it so that logically, there could be no such thing as productive assistance work, when in reality that's just obviously not the case. If it were, nobody would ever train anything but the comp lifts and prehab.
>nobody would ever train anything but the comp lifts and prehab.
yeah it's not like guys like Mike T and sheiko do EX AC TL Y that and are world champs
I think he meant the part where the triceps takes the lead in the movement. Just like the chest does when you touch it with the barbell. Of course every muscle is working but theres percentages of work. Depending on the sticking point you can point out which muscle is lacking strength
I'll take you by your words then, you'll pause x second at y weight and I'll pause 3x seconds at 1/2y weight.
I'll outlift you right? Since I obviously spend more time in this weak position than you.
You'll say "you are just being ridiculous now", but if you actually think about it, there is no way to draw a line - you just subjectively think you can, but in reality you have nothing to back your decision up.
Keep doing what you are doing, but accept that you have nothing to logically or factually prove its efficiency.
It's just something you think that works.
I did this already. Stalled. Hard.
But it's really not the same. I understand what you're saying but I don't think it's true. There's different muscle recruitment in the bench depending on where the bar is.
Being able to lift less is the definition of weaker tho.
>>35958312 (DB bench and Lunges, not to mention all the other sheiko screencaps with other exercises)
And Mike T does "Priority 1/2/3" sessions, which vary in terms of specificity, as far as I can tell.
>But it's really not the same.
we will disagree, but is beside the point.
I just think the root argument is, specifically, 'weak off the chest' is just 'weak' and not comparable to weaker at the top.
if you are weak off the chest, all you've done is let the weight down to your chest and then heaved it off an inch or two. it is the most difficult part of the lift and you haven't lifted it simply because you weren't strong enough.
it wasn't that at an inch off your chest you hit you're strength wall - an inch off the chest does not swap to your "weak point".
I dont think pauses and accessories don't have their place - I just think including them for the sake of 'weak off the chest' training is incorrect.
actually I only started commenting when you said
>strong at the top
>therefore must mean weak at the bottom
it is a matter of leverages. that was my original argument. the above is just an opinion but inconsequential in terms of training really
And I disagree with that. I know people that blast off the chest and fail at lock.
And I know if I get past my first few inches the weight blasts up quickly.
When I film my bench I can see a noticeable speed difference.
If your view was true then I would slow as I press, since the muscles are the same and would get tired from exertion.
I hate strength science. We don't seem to have any real proof of anything.
You'll always be able to lift more with muscle stretch than paused reps. If you can pause bench 140kg, you'll probably be able to do that for 2 to 3 reps with the muscle stretch. So yes, training with a pause is a valid training method. of course there are others and thats where your training experience comes in. The problem with paused bench is that if you want to do it just to increase your benchpress, you'll need a day for the paused bench, because its very taxing on your body so it'll be more effective if not done after a heavy benchpress session.
>disagreeing with me
Consider yourself unfriended and blocked.
figure out your classification from the raw lifter chart there, find the forum according to that and one of the stickies should have some spreadsheets of programs
I don't see how this post is central to the discussion.
what does this have to do with "weak 1 inch off the chest" training?
or are you just stating your random opinion on pause reps.
a little late to the party, but this
deadlifts have been feeling pretty good lately, and box pulls have felt like a dream. so hopefully that trend continues. and hopefully bench feels better than it did on Monday.
Yeah, but not static after.
A kind of mix between static and dynamic is the way to go for stretching - edge between start of stretching point and maximum stretching point, leaning in and back out between those two - range should increase over time.
Do I really have to stretch legs before bench? Surely a general warm-up should be good enough for legs, seeing as I've never seen a single person stretch anything but shoulders/upper body before bench.
>you're a sumo puller, right?
ye sumo masterrace
>how does deficits work 4u
I put down 25lb bumper plates and stand on those. the platforms that my school gym has are like some kind of hard rubber or something, so I really don't have to worry about them sliding which is nice.
I think that part of the workout is more for focusing on positioning tBh. not anticipating it being that hard, but boris has a way of having deceptively hard workouts, so idk. plus, if you look, you can see that the block pulls use some more decent weight, so my thinking was that the deficits are supposed to be easy so you can do some harder stuff later.
most worried about the 85%2x2 bench, but I'm sure I'll be fine.
last time I ran this program it worked out pretty nicely for me, so I'm learning to question it less and trust it more.
it wouldn't be hard if I started the workout with the goal in mind to hit a 2RM
but in the middle of sheiko, after 2 sets of 3 @80% with 90 second rests in between sets, yeah it's not even close to 93%. anticipating something in the RPE 8.5-9 or so range
Holy shit guys, some gooks were starting shit up my neighbourhood.I came out with a fucking pipe in my hand and they pulled back. I've never been in a fight in my life, and I never thought I'd be able to pull this sort of shit off.
Thank god I look big, so I intimidated the fuck out of them. Who the fuck said lifting shit doesn't have practical uses in modern world?
I go to the same gym as a famous IPF champion and I asked him for some coaching and he reached into his bag and handed me a box of stanzalol (or something)
I compete in the SPF and I've never once seen anyone have or do drugs.
The IPF is a joke.
Why does Rubish generally look so small on videos?
for warmup sets (anything below lmao2pl8) I pretty much just set up the weights and go after about 30 seconds rest, but on the work sets I start the timer on my phone after I add whatever weights I need for the next set.
I'm at the end of a very simple peaking cycle I made just to test maxes before hopping on Sheiko. When do you think it would be smart to put my max session?
>Last Saturday: 3 sets of very heavy squat triples and some bench doubles at 90+%
>This Tuesday: Worked up to a squat single at 60% and did some bench singles at 70%. Last training session.
Was thinking about hitting maxes this Saturday, but because of my job that day went out the window. Is Friday (6 days after heaviest workout) to soon?
>TFW 4 SCOOPS OF C4
I HAVE BECOME FEELS. THESE MAXES WILL BE UNNATTY
Taking my trip off to say this, but one time I caught a girl miring my huge dick. I propped it up in my shorts and sent her a snap of it with the caption "for your own use"

hey isley will the people at Bethnal Green laugh at me if i show up with a barely 300kg total? are they friendly and nice lads or super srs hardcore dudes?
ive only been lifting for like 8 months, and i fucked up the first few months of that.
No, we have plenty of losers and all are welcome. No one is super srs or hardcore.
However, anyone's first night at a new club is usually a bit quiet unless you know someone. People drop in all the time and few invest in someone they'll see only once.
And unfortunately it's £10 a session now up from £5

is there anything bad about sinking backwards on deadlifts before pulling? like rotating my body around the bar to bring my hips down, then pulling and letting my hips rise until the bar leaves the floor?
shouldn't this put me into the best position to pull, instead of starting AROUND the best hip height and pulling with no rise of the hips?
Whats that weird increase in strength and performance that one notices if you catch someone watching / miring your set?
I can't get my head around, but everyone I see that everyone near me is watching my (weak, actually) set of say squat I get incredible strength gains.
How does one get into this mental mode without someone actually watching? Must be possible somehow
>Feynman's social skills
step your game up lad
Do what I do, imagine the girl you love is watching you 5 feet away. Then remember she won't even say hi to you on the elevator in-between classes and that you need to give up on her because she just doesn't like you but you don't understand why because more attractive girls are into you and she's not even that cute but you can't help but feel like she's the one even though she's no different from any other generic white girl and then you try to mask the sobs from your roommate when you realize she'll never lay in bed next to you and you'll never have a happy life together with cute children living in a predominately white middle-class neighborhood.
hey guys, qdoba is giving out buy-one-get-one smothered burritos if you kiss some one on february 14th
