welcome to /plg/ - powerliting general
for the purpose of being a better athlete on the platform
there's a website somewhere for powerlifting general
lmaoing at the disrespect, also nice double dubs
I was watching that competition and me and my mates were laughing to this australian who walked on the backstage with his coach like 2 lovers.
I only now realise who he was.
Me too, these femurs are just too much to over come desu
>says one of the biggest genetic freaks in the whole general
I have really long femurs and my deadlift is on point but my squat is literal garbage and can't be fixed.
thanks genetics : ^)
>biggest genetic freaks in the whole general
Ummmm fuck off norse
I've been training for the same amount of time as you and don't even have a 400 wilks
you're a whiny little bitch. I can't believe you actually whine like this when you have a 440+wilks
same here lad. My deadlift is shit though
Ordered an elbow sleeve since I hurt something in my left elbow two weeks ago catching a clean wrong like a dumbass. I saw people in the reviews saying they keep it on all the time and not just when lifting and the compression/warmth helps, should I do this or will I just be making myself look stupid? Obviously not out in class or in public but like when I'm sitting at home playing video games and shitposting
you, filip and bryce are undeniably the best genetically gifted motherfuckers here. you got an insane total with NO programming and are literally genetically biased towards strength and being xbox huge
kek, i mean thats the idea.
why do nigga think i'm do WL
because I can't be good at PL?
its like fuck, come on. I'm not going to progress at PL. I have a FFMI of 25. thats life, i'm done getting bigger and stronger.
So instead I'm spending time learning something new so that i can actually see improvements and have fun along the way, and maybe lose a bunch of weight and get shreddd as fuk sikkunt
I mean, i only partially joke about the femurs. my femurs and hips really do FUCK me for WL and squatting in general, very very hard.
having my feet that wide and that angled is literally the ONLY way i can get into an upright position. there's no way around it.
senpai, i'm fucking with you. I only blame genetics about 20% : ^ )
yes. but again, your FFMI can only take you so far, and for me thats a 1700 total.
I disagree, filip is probably a farther outlier than me by a long thot
Hell never make it though, obviously lacks the grit and the balls to keep working when it stops being easy.
That's the difference between champions and regular joes and it looks like norsie has already decided on being a regular Joe.
Suppose you're an unidentifed advanced lifter with a 124.7kg (275lb) 1RM competition bench press. Today you programmed 3x3 @ 90% = 112.3kg (247.5lb) for your work sets.
How would you warm up for this? I'm interested in everyone's thoughts about reps, sets and percentages.
If the scenario doesn't make sense, then post whatever you do to warm up before your working sets.
>its like fuck, come on. I'm not going to progress at PL. I have a FFMI of 25. thats life, i'm done getting bigger and stronger.
I don't know if you're memeing or not but FFMI literally doesn't apply if you're obese
>I disagree, filip is probably a farther outlier than me by a long thot
you do realise that you got to a 700lb deadlift on the kind of training that phil stalled on 485lb deadlifts on.....
you are grossly underestimating how long hes been training with actual programming
with one disclaimer; I dont think its 'over' for you. You are what, 24? You can probably change your mind at 28-30yo if your life is less stressful, and make it quite far before stalling at 40-45 because of age
I deadlifted 125kg for 2 reps first time I tried, then I was so rekt by back pump I could barely stand up the day after
My first hard stall was at 215kg, which is still less than norsie the first time he tried ;^^^)
Is a 25kg dumbbell curl bad? I do it for 10 reps easy and my arms are so small.
I see guys with huge arms come in and so 5-10kg preacher curls and there forearms probably drawf my biceps ffs
I don't think it's really possible to see who's talented after only one year of lifting, lots of the differences between non elite lifters are probably due to programming, work etic and general lifestyle(someone who was active and played a lot of sports as a kid can probably start with what would take other months to reach.
>I don't think it's really possible to see who's talented after only one year of lifting
It totally is
the freaks stand out after just a few months training. or even straight away (for example Lotus literally deadlifted 5 plates the first time he tried)
not tryign to be a cunt, but yeah its true.
First time I pulled I managed 225 kg back in high school
>with one disclaimer
yeah, thats probably true
unless you literally fucking can't stand volume training and fatigue accrual, in which case you're not going to put yourself in a situation where you progress because its unenjoyable
This is very true though. And i should probably shut up about it in the future for that reason.
>made linear progress to 3pl8 dead
>took 2 further years to reach 4pl8
>that was a year ago haven't PRd since
i would say i was about 20% serious.
I have big, thick bones, wide hips and shoulders, and I'm genetically very inclined towards being strong in general.
I don't disagree with that in any way.
But I'm actually being relatively serious about my hip and femur morphology. it seriously is a huge detriment to my squat, and in the terms of WL, its fucking horrible because of just how wide I have to be, how far angled out my knees have to track, and just how much forward knee travel I have to have, just to come even close to being in an upright position.
Now, obviuously with LOTS of fucking mobility work I can get to that point. It can be done, but its alot of fuckign work, work that ALOT of people don't have to go through.
Say what you want, but just because femur length doiesn't translate to much more than 10% deficiency in weight moved in extreme cases doesn't mean it can't be a detriment in other regards.
They were only 22kg...
I eat 4000 calories a day ffs
That's what they were last time I measured, which wasn't too long ago.
Cut is going well lads. Weighed at 200.8 this morning, from 210 about 4-5 weeks ago.
I'm not really sure what my goal is tbqh. I'm not going to make it to 183 and I definitely won't make it to 175 (for strongman) so there's really no reason to be doing this.
>Same hip issues
>Short Achilles tendon which makes ankle mobility shit
>Low testosterone (below 170ng/dl), possibly throughout my entire life, even puberty.
>spinal alignment is off by 22 degrees if looking from the side
Just got back from my first ever meet lads. Had the most fantastic experience.
Isley, thanks for the advice for making conservative attempts. I went 9/9 and still got at least 5kg PRs on each lift.
My best lifts of the day were 165/110/170 (kg). If anyone is thinking about doing their first meet, just go for it. Was an awesome day.
>get sad because of that
>go on a cut
>life sucks rn and is stressful af
>get sad because of that, overeat
123.4 kg this morning bitchesssssss
I don't look anywhere near as good as i did last time I weighed 123 though... which is a bit disheartening....
I'm not a cheat. Even if I never hop on again I may not compete usapl. I really like the structure there but uspa just has WAY more events in my area so it doesn't matter if I'm on or not
Literally the only problem I don't have related to lifting. Elbow bothers me sometimes but I'm pretty sure that's a flexor/extensor issue in the forearm
>its a "good lifters complain about their lack of progress" episode
>105 is way too lean for him.
if he stayed really lean for a while it would counteract his fatboy genetics and history, giving him a new set point from which to healthily reach 120 once more
yea those are mine proportions but I can still arch ok becuase of really great flexibility deadlift (sumo) is kinda hard because my knee angle is like 90 degrees even though feet are out to plates and I'm 5'6 lol
doesnt mean much really
bad angles, lighting, attitude at the time etc fuck shit up
keep her lit lad
>Literally the only problem I don't have related to lifting
its literally fucking kiling me
pushed through werid calf or ankle pain (probably tendinitis) for month to make meet
got so bad i had to stop squatting after
thats ok ill just deadlift and bench for a while
strain left pec 1 week after stopping squats
deadlifts it is, knee pain out of nowhere while still not squatting
let it pass
strain lat with deadlifts, cant even lift arm without pain
>when anon asks you a question, you answer and he doesn't reply
tfw lifting for almost 2 years and still haven't pulled 200kg.
That's why I hate this general.
Everyone here is a generic freak and you don't realise this at first, so you spend the next few years of your life frustrated and wondering why you didn't deadlift 300kg the first day at the gym.
My standards are so fucked up at this point that 300kg doesn't seem heavy in my mind
Didn't win, wasn't worried about winning on my first ever. Getting 5kg PRs on each lift and going 9/9 is good enough for me.
Competed in the 93kg class at 89.8kg, but i'm at about 20% body fat so i'll be cutting down now to the 83s for my next meet.
To do a GBPF meet, buy GBPF membership on their website and check your regional website for upcoming meets. They release the entry forms about 6 weeks before the competition.
Sorry to hear about that dude. Only thing keeping me from progress is this crippling progress related depression that I've been trying to hide from you guys
He could be a good 120 right now though.
It was a fairly small meet. 30 lifters in total (11 female, 19 male) with about 50-60 spectators.
It was also a meet designated for novices and juniors, so they let people have extra attempts if they missed lifts on technicalities (like missing rack commands on squat or bench) so they could learn how to lift in competition.
If you're even considering competing I can't encourage you enough to go for it. It was such a great experience.
as in you just arent progressing as fast as you want?
also i skipped a non important meet and seen vids and results of it, everyone is now matching or overtaking me, got me motivated as fuck and then realised i cant even go to the gym
that adds quite a bit of salt to the soup as well
Is this a problem? Last rep of my AMRAP today. This happens gradually as soon as the reps get harder and harder.
As in I'm not progressing at all and haven't for a while so I'm secretly hoping I wake up dead one day.
>everyone overtaking me
Nah just internet people at least. I have a pretty healthy lead on people I know irl
I was front squatting 365 the other day and a rando at gym was blown away....
meanwhile i was borderline /depression/ because i had to dump one of my singles at 365 because i fucked up
Used to be me all the time.
>adidas shills OUT
never mentioned adidas lad, but they are a good choice. rogue fitness has powerlift 2.0s really cheap right now, like <$50
other good choices include wrestling shoes, mark meme bell shoes and cheaper wling shoes like do-win and pendlay
Knee valgus isn't healthy for your knees, you'll fuck something up. Also looks like your hips were rising faster than your back was going up, but the gif made it difficult to tell.
Tbh getting some shoes with actual arch support would help if you notice it happens a lot. They don't have to be super expensive. If you like squatting barefoot then some wrestling shoes could help. Otherwise some sort of weightlifting shoe would also do the job just fine. I used to get valgus all the time when I lowbar squatted in flats, problem got fixed immediately when I got some adipowers.
And if it happens as you get more and more tired, you also have to focus on not going into that position, even if it means cutting it a few reps short to preserve form.
>a real program that relies on tested methods and scientific research
Lol, you're joking right?
We know Shit-all about the "science"of powerlifting.
Sheiko away if that calms you, though.
I don't feel like shoes will help me at all, since my ankle mobility is enough for how I squat. Maybe I'm wrong. Does arch support affect knee valgus?
Deloading will not help, since I've done tons of easy sets with no valgus but as soon as I go to higher RPE it happens. I think this is a problem Isley has no?
That's why I said wrestling shoes could help. It's not about the ankle mobility help, which those don't provide anyway. It's about the arch support, which certainly makes a huge difference.
T-Ball, little league football, lower rim on kids basketball. There are plenty of examples of sports catering to beginners.
Also, if you like powerlifting, you should want more people to do it. Making it more accessible will make it easier for beginners and make it more popular overall
Anecdotal evidence I'll grant you, but I suffered with extreme knee valgus for I think around 4 or more months. My knees would literally touch together sometimes lol.
What fixed it? A big deload and forcing my knees out. I squat 140kg low bar, but for a month I did 100kg high bar squats and forced my knees out until I didn't have to think about it any more.
Picked up the weight I left off the previous month and bam I'm doing it without knee valgus, even when making out.
>There are plenty of examples of sports catering to beginners.
your examples arent even applicable lol, your litterally calling a beginner powerlifter a child
i cant just move to america as a 20 something man and say 'right little league coach im just going to play here untill i learn the ropes, i know you wont have a problem with this since im just a beginner'
if you want to talk about age, there is a junior category which is compareable to the examples your giving
I have run this program twice. Third time now. I'm a lot closer to intermediate numbers accorind to various sites and on a bulk. Technique is a lot better. The reason I ask is if you make better gains if you are at a certain strengthlevel.
What are your entered maxes?
What do you expect?
Have you run the program before.
Bought a new foam roller so now I can foam roll instead of rumble roll.
>I have a FFMI of 25. thats life, i'm done getting bigger and stronger.
>I'm genetically very inclined towards being strong in general.
Tbh you can probably reach a higher FFMI than that.
440 entered, 460 confirmed
335 entered, 335 confirmed
600 entered, 600 confirmed
I've run the whole program twice, just the lower part twice as well.
I expect squat gains, which is most of what I got out of it last couple times, which is squat gains. If I get any gains out of this I'll be happy. I just deadlifted 510 2x6 the other day so that bodes well for that
>What are your entered maxes?
always my actual 1RM
>What do you expect?
>Have you run the program before.
in july I will be
np friend. here is the freedoms one if you live in the 1st world
Look at this cunt
Fucking natty cunt benching 200kg with the flattest back on gods earth and no leg drive to be seen. Dude even has a fucking close grip.
WHY CAN HE BENCH SO MUCH
Because there are outliers, and deadlifting >200kgs your first time kinda puts you in that category, don't you think? Like you said, "very inclined towards being strong in general". CYC came fifth in Norway's Strongest Man at the age of 17.
Granted, it's "easier" to get a higher FFMI than 25 when you have more bodyfat, but I seriously don't think 25 is your max. I used to, some time ago, but not really anymore.
Through a club :^) NSF has a webshop, but the shirt doesn't have the flag on it. Not sure the webshop has been updated since 2008/9 either.
>Not sure the webshop has been updated since 2008/9 either.
why is this the case for so many fed websites? I swear half of them look like some sort of craigslist/gameFAQs abomination with a little bit of myspace sprinkled in
>Still good for the sport.
nope still completely unneeded
are you telling me you only competed because there was a novice meet held
no, you would have competed at a proper meet anyway
>"I och med de höjda SM-kvalgränserna bör ytterligare ett tävlingstillfälle bjudas de som inte riktigt når upp till kvalgränsen."
Translated: "With the increased nats-qualifying limits for another competition opportunity offered those who do not quite reach the qualifying limit."
They arent refering to a "new nationals" they are refering to so called landsdelsmästerskap (greater regionals based on southern, middle, northern sweden). Northern sweden has been doing that for years. Southern sweden started last year.
Right after that:
>Landsdelsmästerskap har arrangerats förr men arrangeras numer bara för föreningarna inom ramen för Norrlandsdistrikten, nämligen Norrlandsmästerskapen.
>Förbundsstyrelsen föreslår övriga distrikt att hörsamma detta för att försöka återuppliva Svealands(ex. ÖSSF, VSSF) -och Götalandsmästerskap (ex. VGSF, SÖSF och SSSF)
Laughing at what? Even more well organized competitions?
Götalandsmästerskapen even had a produced stream when I competed in it last year.
What landsdelar are you guys from?
I'm going to götalands this year too
Just wanted to know weight class desu
I'm competing in +84
>no, you would have competed at a proper meet anyway
actually Im not the guy that participated in the practice meet but I would if there was one near me.
As someone who has missed max lifts because of nerves, I could use the practice.
How can I make my legs catch up to my arms? My legs and arms are fucking the same size. Should I maintain my upper body lifts and progress on lower body? Or should I just skip upper body entirely until my legs catch up?
one time talked to this powerlifter chick on tinder. She was super aggressive and an kind of an asshole. Bragging all the time, always in peoples faces. Despite being hot that attitude was a huge turnoff
>>36010293 reminds me of her.
i don't want to stretch senpai
god this triggers me
its objectively incorrect and why we have weightclasses / gender classes
>you cant just dismiss it
I suppose not, but its gotta be irritating.
Imagine being a 65 kg dude and having people tell you you are strong af "for your size" while they outlift your total by hundreds of kilos. Its gotta suck.
oh, I was worried for a sec
It's sean taking out his massive inferiority complex by being a giant faggot.
Guys you know that norwegian frequency study they did with powerlifters that showed same volume but higher frequency = more gains. What if I split sheiko workout so instead of
M: bench 1 squat 1
W: bench 2 deadlift 1
F: bench 3 squat 1
M: bench 1 squat 1
T: bench 1 squat 1
W:bench 2 deadlift 1
T: bench 2 deadlift 1
F: bench 3 squat 2
S: bench 3 squat 2
Wife just got a $12,000 bonus at work.
Time to make my home gym STATE OF THE FUCKING ART.
actually the volume you have to do in one session to get an effect is actually very low, forget where in video but watch the whole either way it is good
Do a program meant for high frequency. Greg Nuckols has a book on it, the bulgarian manual. I did his 5x week high frequency program he has laid out here too. http://www.strengtheory.com/your-drug-free-muscle-and-strength-potential-part-2/
girlfriend sent me this today after i asked her if she wanted to do something
damn i'm jealous...
If i ran sheiko again (>) splitting it up like that is how I would do it.
Tomorrow, I will be doing 170/175/180
Going to be such a fun day :D
what does matter, then?
what is that stick thing (pic related)
T B H
I'm thinking 250/180/300 is possible
(Two weeks today lads)
eh, she won't text me back now so who cares any more
