Yesterday when I was joking about crowdfunding my squat shoes, it gave me an idea for something cool an unattainable.

It would be cool to put together a /plg/ fund and use it as a seed to setup almost a sponsorship for some of the more promising lifters in need. Like we could cover a few meet entries per year or something.
>>
2nd for the comfy in /plg/ is gone since the mods started giving a shit about it.

to make it pl related, how is everyone's training going? sheiko is starting to get kind of hard now finally. only a week until skills test

Good idea desu

>>35162964
kinda want to give shieko a go Tbh
but i got hurt on a warm up weight that may or may not have been related to sheiko

how are your lifts going? are you still able to progress doing something simpler? this is my first time doing something like this, and it is sooo boring. I would say if you can, do something else until you absolutely cannot progress anymore, unless you don't mind RARELY going over 80%

>>35162981
yeeeeeeeeeee
>>
>>35162964

Wishin I weren't injured, ƒam. OHP and light squat session tomorrow, might try borrowing a lad's squat shoes to see how much of a difference it makes (if it's anything like the heel raised bw squats I did last night, it should be a big difference).

Worried about Deadlifts on Tuesday. My back feels great. Really minor pain, really rarely. Hoping to at least work up to 75% for a triple, but we'll see. Pain will be the guide.

Not very realistic I don't think though. Be very very cool though to sponsor a lifter though. I'd be game to putting it together if enough people were interested.

>how are your lifts going? are you still able to progress doing something simpler?
ehh, i suppose they are moving, low increases over the year but that is probably more to do with slight injuries that i keep needing to take time off for and building back

+10kg to squat
+2.5kg to bench (although +15kg to tng lol)
+~5kg to dead
over a year
not exactly fast

i dont mind boring Tbh
i really only do little assistance

this your first test coming up?

>>35163000
nice idea but unrealistic really
giving it to trips would be accused of favouritism and basically 'stealing' money
giving it to anons would result in sean ripping videos and making a youtube channel or something lol
>>
>>35163057
>bulkin again lads.

The first week of returning to the bulk is always so glorious and then you realise how much you have to eat every day.

>>35163068
so true. Decided to stop cutting now that I can see the veins in the middle of my forehead.

I missed bread.
>>
>>35163062

I'd structure it as a "membership" so if you donated let's say, $10, you got to vote on who get's the sponsorship for that year. I'd also have a smaller contingent acting as the "nominators" who would pick, let's say five applicants to bring forward to the voting body.

>>35163062
If you don't mind boring, then I'd say go for it if you aren't making great progress on other stuff. And yes, this is going to be my first test coming up. pretty hype, especially for bench. Squats are feeling either super easy or super hard, depending on the day, and deads are feeling ok too. Bench is really feeling nice though.

it really doesn't get that bad for a few weeks. but I am only doing the 3 day one, so if you were planning on trying the 4 day, that would likely be a different story. I think Norse and Bodorio both had pretty tough times with the fatigue. But they both made awesome progress afaik

So I finally got 3 plate deadlifts and worked up to doing a challenging double with it. Then I took a month or so hiatus, come in and hit a 10lvs PR. Yesterday I added 10lbs to that.

I'm happy to say the least my baby weight is going up.

Then me and my friend beat some 13 year olds in basketball

I like spoto too but pause on the chest is better for imitating the tightness you need in a competition bench imo
>>
>>35164323
>>35164333
Sometimes I feel loose when I'm doing longer pauses on chest I've never competed, what do you do to her tight? Just like try to bend bar and make lats like a bow?
>>
>>35164359
Yeah flex the lats the entire time. To me it almost feels like I'm starting the pressing movement the entire time I'm pausing, just not with enough force to make the bar move.
>>

I'll give that a try I hate that shit where you pause and it doesn't budge/shoot like it should be

I'm going to give sheiko a run of 29 then 37 and I was just wondering if I should add in a few sets of chin ups or face pulls? It just seems so weird to do so much pressing and not work your back.

depending on the issue. banded squats really helped me get speed out of the hole, pause squats help with positioning. if neither of those are an issue just squat more tBh. i feel like front squats are good but they have such a mobility and technique requirement it might not be worth it, maybe SSB instead

>>35164893
they were doubles, typically i do a quick-ish 3 count but they felt light so i did that for fun.
I replaced sheiko's deadlift to knees with paused deadlifts, and took 5% off the intensity because i thought otherwise they would be too hard. so typically its 65-75% for doubles or triples

oooooo that makes sense. do you still do the same reps and sets then? and in the sheiko I am doing, it has you do the deadlifts to knees, then bench, then block pulls (I don't know if yours is the same), but if it is, do you do the block pulls after as well?

I really like your way of doing them.

Well /plg/, here I am in my hour of need. I began my fitness journey earlier this year, and went from a fatty to a half-decent looking guy who fits into nice clothes again. Unfortunately I lost so much weight without lifting that my body is a laughable funhouse of shitty composition, and I don't think I'll ever look aesthetic. But I love the feeling of lifting and getting that pump, so I'm here to ask for your advice, essentially how do I get started on just becoming a powerhouse instead of trying to look lean

Any advice at all would be much appreciated, I don't know my numbers for major lifts but I do know I'm devastatingly weak because I can barely bench 100lbs
>>
>>35165695

try a beginner strength routine. SS gets shit on a lot but if you eat lots and do accessory work it's pretty solid

I already have pretty huge quads and calves thanks to genetics AND being a fat fuck but my core is utter shit so I'll probably do that. What kind of accessory work do you mean/recommend?
>>
>>35165695

You can get surgery man, that's what I'm going to do when I'm finished. 342 -> 235 but I lifted the whole way. Going to have loose skin, but fortunately lost it slowly and lifted the entire time so the muscle mass bulks out most of it.
>>
>>35165695

Pick a basic lifting routine (SS and SL are the ones mostly pimped, but there's dozens around. They tend to share certain things in common - training the big lifts multiple times per week for lowish reps and increasing the weight aggressively).

Beyond that its mostly a matter of hard work, food and time.

>>
>>35165769
Ah see I'm relatively poor so surgery is off the table for a long time. I lost my fat really quickly, 110lbs since March 1st so I have just a bit of loose skin on my front stomach, the main problem is I can't seem to develop my chest at all and I still have love handles. My arms look okay for a dyel and my legs are above average, but the torso is just... depressing
>>
>>35165771
The reason I'm failing my goal to become aesthetic is because after 9 months of cutting I just can't stay away from food anymore. The type of food is no concern; I have no craving for the garbage I used to eat like soda and fast food. I just can't control the quantity I consume. I can easily overeat on 3000 calories of chicken and veggies in one day and it still turns to fat because I only do cardio

Figure I may as well start lifting at the same time I'm collapsing so that I get muscle along with the fat
>>
>>35165789
I hear you. Luckily I can leech off my parent's health insurance until I'm 26 and they have great insurance and have agreed to pay for it for me. They're just pleased I got my shit together.

I recommend dips and dumbbell flies for chest development, both are great.
>>
>>35165761

dips, chins, curls, maybe some abwork
>>
>>35165761

Do chin ups every day you do SS, 4 sets and stop just a few reps shy of failure. Don't do pullups; chinups will involve your biceps which is good for girls and also for avoiding muscle imbalances.

Replace power cleans with barbell rows for 3x5 or 3x8 or something like that.

If you have fucky shoulders at all, do face pulls 3 x per week/
>>
>>35165821
Dips are the only exercise that seem to make my chest feel worked at all, and even then its just the inward pectorals. Bench gets me nothing, I must have poor form...

I'll try some dumbbell flies for sure though, thank you. I just have a crap at-home gym for now so I'm stuck getting used to the weights I have, once I can lift those with ease I'm going to upgrade. Also lucky you for the free surgery, you're gonna make it farther than most ex-fatties my man
>>
>>35165849
We're all gonna make it brah. Grats on your progress.
Now we just have to get those social gains.
>>
>>35165843
When it comes to noob gains, I'm doing okay on most fronts except delts and chest, my traps are pretty decent and bis/tris/forearms are decent as well. Don't pullups work shoulders and back? Should I do them alongside some chinups? My biceps are exploding as it is with these meager lifts I can manage

Noob-wise, of course
>>
>>35165859
Lucky for me I've always been outgoing and now that I'm thin, I make friends easier than ever. I just want to be completely comfortable with myself physically and then I'll have made it

>>35165864

If I were you and I were worried about delts, I would do some seated dumbbell press 1-2 x per week.

for chest I like to do 3-5 sets of dumbbell bench for 10 or so., 2-3x per week.

Dips are an awesome exercise for chest / triceps if you can do them injury / pain-free but a lot of people arent that lucky unfortunately. In fact I would do those over dumbbell bench if i could.


I'm not gonna tell you the "bench / OHP is enough for your chest / shoulders" meme because I dont believe in it; also you aren't going to get weaker by doing less work, so it doesnt really matter.

Also if you are interested in PL there isnt really a point in doing OHP.

My shoulders and clavicles do click frequently when I try certain exercises, which is strange because I didn't play sports or anything in school so I don't know what causes that. Makes a few exercises somewhat painful

I'm sorry man, I didn't mean it like that. I was depressed after the breakup but I ended up just pulling the (metaphorical) trigger and stopped being afraid of things. Traveled, made money, lost weight, it all came so easily once I just stopped being scared and dwelling on the past. The future looks bright, you can do it my friend

>say i squat 150kg for 3x5 what is my 1rm?

probably had 3-5 reps left in tank per set.
when I squatted 120 for 3x5 my max was 160, given the former sets and reps felt much harder than what im squatting now.

I havent tested squats in quite a while but would it be safe to say my max is 180-200?
>>
>>35168544
180ish kg seems plausible. There's only one way to find out desu.
>>
>>35166516
I make a point not to be this guy.
However if I do full-body I'm likely to use a rack for up to a whole hour.

its completely true tho
people handle reps and heavier weight different Tbh
for reference tho if you have up to 5 reps left (which is always hard to judge at that point, shit hits the fan quick to know youve got 5 reps left imo)
say 165-170 is absolute 5rm which is what im around, although i dont really do 5s mostly doubles and triples
i just squatted 200

but youll not know and cant just claim it
also take to smaller prs before go mad and doing big jumps

>>35168660
thanks senpai.
not gonna say exactly because you know how 4chan is but barely 500kg.
nah lol i didnt.

yeah youre right.
id say im better at repping weight out than maxing from experience.

im iffy right now as im cutting on ss, just trying to add weight and stave off strength drops. not sure when I'll max out next until ive hit weight goals
>>
>>35167887
Yeah man I've had a spasm in it. What's going on for you?
>>
Ive been doing SL for like 9 months with some inconsistencies cause of exams, vacation etc.. and Im still making slow progress. Like I add 2.5 kg on squat every 3 sessions. Should I stop it and go to intermediate program or is it when I fully make no progress at all? Ive seen people finish it in like 4 months. Also what intermediate program do you recommend that's 3 days a week?

>im iffy right now as im cutting on ss,
oh you the same guy
im guessing you a bigger guy but still around 500kg on ss seems pretty good

im usually a 'what are you in plg for if your still on ss' but thats because im used to the 250-300kg ss'ers coming in here saying ohp should replace bench or something lol
>>
>>35168870
How are you?
>>
>>35168896
yeah same guy, a bit over the place as im jumping between 4chan and writing formal emails.
im 90kg rn after travelling, being slack on diet. I competed at 80kg in june last year :|
I pulled 240kg and benched 120kg yoloing a bit earlier cut.
based on projected squat max that would make my total 540-560. Hopefully I can maintain something like this ~85kg

I think SS is underrated whilst cutting.
It's good going on the offensive and trying to add weight to lifts progressively while in a deficit. I'd get bored as hell sticking to same numbers while i watch the scales go down, its variety i suppose.
>>
Any big downside to doing seated ohp only? Getting a homegym and my basement ceiling isn't high enough to do OHP
>>
>>35168839
I would try going down to 3x5/5x3 first. Madcow was pretty fun after SS.

>>
>>35169011
How's your gf?
>>
>>35169000
maybe not SS specifically but the idea of adding weight on a cut rather than what is generally suggested:
>maintaining intensity and trying to hang onto lifts
seems somewhat defeatist.
Additionally most people give up on SS when it gets heavy, let alone failing a lift twice then resetting by 10%. You see it all the time with threads, people giving up on programs and general hopping between them.

>>35169014
Thanks m8.
what weight and calories are you at now?
the weird thing was when preparing for matti tikka I was trying to bulk to the end of the weight class to be competitive, I was being very strict with my fitness pal and trying to eat 5-6k calories, I was training 3 days a week peaking and didnt go above 80kg for some reason when my calculated TDEE was 3k. Then out of nowhere I got sick.

I hate cutting man, I'm hungry all the time without restricting myself. Being 115kg in the past this is even more torturous.

you're fooling yourself if you think that more than a quarter of the people who say they do SS or any beginner program follow the common point of:

SS forces bad motor patterns, has a high injury rate, and just sucks compared to proper programming

the book calls bad form failure irrc so if form breakdown occurs a deload is reccomended.
high injury rate? how so?
how does it suck, what is proper programming in your mind?
ss has been working for me this cut and i think its an underrated program for intermediates, however im biased.

If anything a novice has higher risk of injury training as you'd reccomend and in the context (weight loss while trying to stave off strength loss) I was praising SS high volume work can crush you.

>>35169693
There are no plates for "standard" 28mm barbells with a 45cm diameter. Largest ones are 36cm so you still have to use a 4,5cm block. And it would actually cost me quite much to buy them. Jerk blocks costed me 20 euros.

Squat day went pretty well, save for the return of the weird pain during the paused squats. Hit all my reps for the day. Will have a new episode up later.
>>
Okay so I changed gyms and it's impossible to set pins perfectly for the racks in the new gym.

My squat actually went down 15 fucking kilos because I can't rack the bar across my shoulders properly now, plus I have shoulder pain from it.

So the question is, should I set the bar too high or too low in the power rack?

>>35170066
I always go with too low personally. Wastes energy and I can't set up as comfy as normal, but too high fucks with all that way more, plus having to calf raise to get out of the rack.

truth
pretty much the only way to get huge ones are train from child or fat from life

I trained mine like 3-4x a week when i started lifting 2 years ago. It looks alright when I flex but still small in comparison to my quads and hammies

Rippetoe says "fuck rows" if I remember right. I'd say do them strict, cables, dumbbells, and machines are all good, I haven't done a barbell row in probably most of a year.

I googled the quote and it's literally Rip saying "Fuck rows. Get your dadlift to 500 and then you won't have to worry about my opinion", and then he goes and describes rows in SS.


Well my fucking deadlift is marginally bigger than that and I still don't know if I should do rows.

I am upset, I realized I don't know anything about lifting.

Alright lads, I touched on it last night.

Who would be interested on a crowd funded campaign to set up a fund which we could use to "sponsor" one to two /plg/ lifters in need per year? It would be set up democratically - making a donation would ensure you had a vote on who we would sponsor, and depending on the amount raised we could pay for meet fees, membership fees, or even gear? Who knows!?

Well /plg/?

Lately I've just been doing cable rows. When I had access to a Hammer Strength chest-supported row machine I loved that thing. Anything where you get a good stretch and contraction in the lats/rhomboids will work fine.

Hmm, smells like bullshit to me...

That looks like a pendlay row desu. Think the normal bb row is towards the end of vid. Tbh I'm like fuck rows, i only do chinups for back and my back is already miles ahead of my anterior upper body.

>>35170394

Trust me lad, I hear you. In our first year, I'd be happy to raise ~$300, so I think donations of $5 would be enough to get membership into the process. Does that seem manageable?

Depends on the meet and if you get a T-shirt or not. Bot honestly, entering a meet that doesn't come with a T-Shirt seems dumb to me. T-shirts are why I lift.

I'd probably have it set up in tiers on kickstarter.

$5 would get you a vote on who gets sponsored
$20 would put you on the nominating committee
$50 would put you on the nominating committee and give you design input on any apparel
$100 blah balh

Yeah, you can definitely get away with a little extra bodybuilding on a linear progression routine. Chinups/pullups should take care of your back and arms for now, some lateral raises or DB shoulder press would be fine too.

I don't think selling the shirt and profiting is exactly plausible. Shipping costs would be nutty to go to most of you fuckers.

I put it there so you would know it's me :)
nice trips btw

I'm just saying, you would have to make a really, really neat shirt for it to be worthwhile to buy one. Like would you wear a shirt around school that says /plg/ on it, knowing that people will more than likely ask what plg means and you will have to try and explain a recurring powerlifting thread on an north sudanese rice cooking forum to a bunch of normies?

I could get behind buying a PL themed shirt for the folks here, but a /plg/-specific shirt is a stretch for me at least
>>
>>35170779
Nuggets used to be around 100 bucks but have now grown up to 200.
But just having a nugget isn't entry level. That's poor fag tier.
>>35170790
I remember threads on that saying they were basically no better than Enfields.
Also I'm jelly of you guys having access to Russian and Chinese guns.

Also when are you going to come to the states to lift with me and Alex?

>>35170852
Yeah you're right id never buy a plg shirt, only thing worse would be like a candito training hq one lmao what fucboi would buy one of those

Maybe Isley bug-eyed from the chest upp with a small "/plg/" down in the corner?

Stop being a beta scardy cat.

As long as they're not worse, that's still pretty high praise. Those Enfields are like the Volvo of guns - they will never die. Just have fun finding enough cartridges for them.

that shirt sounds like a nightmare to me tBh. I could definitely deal with something with /plg/ in the corner like you suggested though, I just wouldn't want it to the the main feature of the design.

>>35170884
>stop being a beta
no
but in all seriousness, like I am wearing pic related right now, I'm not ashamed of PL or anything. but there is a serious gap between PL in general and a recurring thread on 4chan

It's hard to get them in Canada too, which considering it's a British Round is kind of scary.

The new Rangers Sako is kitted for based .308 Winchester which I find all the time under rocks and in gloveboxes. In Canada, we actually hide .308 cartridges instead of Easter eggs.
