LOL. Your opinion is invalid. ALL powerlifting was geared until relatively recently. Raw lifting is fairly new. It allows people who are less serious about the sport to compete. Very few people can put up 2500+ totals and your boy is definitely not one of them right now. How about a prop bet - what is your bench press pr? You pick the bench shirt of your choice. Work with it for 3 months. $1000 says you cant double your bench in the shirt.

Re: Project ABP

I'm assuming his bench is somewhere in the low 2's?

For $500 loco, you can come here and we'll teach you how to win that bet, fairly easily imo.

We even have tubs full of shirts, so you're covered there.

A suggestion: to prevent the devolution of your thread, you should ban all non lifting posters from posting ITT. No video or log of sq/bp/dl with a barbell= not allowed to post.
80% should be around 8RM. Not surprising he is doing more on sq/DL. He was underestimating RPE on those in his previous log

Unfortunately that man is now dead, taken by dadbod. N1 looking to carry S&F single handedly, in the only current powerlifting thread in the forum.

Just wow, wow, wow. Good chance he breaks his back and cries uncle. Or he gets enshrined as the greatest Golden ever (rip fakeB). It's gonna be a good season of N1hater, that's fosho.

Re: Project ABP

Re: AMRAPs, beesch is obviously correct.

Re: getting bigger in general, Evo is obviously correct, but it's equally obvious our hero has made his decision. I'm interested to see how it works out. Hopefully orange chicken improves recovery.

Re: Project ABP

Powerlifting is literally weightlifting for the ******ed. Geared is a smaller niche just with a few more people helping out, lube, trash bags, and bondage.

Good luck future-ABP! Wish you the best, but hope you open to advice this time.

Just getting to the point where I’m pretty much pain free day to day. Last few times I’ve squatted or deadlift sciatic has flared up a bit for a week following. Don’t wana **** it up again where it’s 6mo of pain every time I sit down. But yeah starting this week going to be doing some more BB style lower body and maybe at some point get back to squatting. We’ll see.

Weightlifting still master race or strength sports ainec. But you'll admit its fairly inaccessible; tons of people literally won't have access to the equipment needed to even start.

Close down to advice from self-proclaimed alpha males with youtube channels and e or print books.

Re: Project ABP

Can someone explain to me exactly why weightlifting >>> powerlifting? I've figured out that's what most of the cool kids think, I'm not sure I've figured out exactly why.

non-nerds grunch
If you spend 3 months learning the lifts and get semi-competent at them, it'll be very hard to disagree, however you probably don't have the time or patience so here's a list of why it's better and a few aspects in which its worse.

Re: Project ABP

Powerlifting is where it's at. It's a sport where big balls can get you impressive lifts, even without steroids. This forum rose as a Rippetoe Utopia that is now mostly dead. Guys like N1 and beechnuts (my apologies good sir), keep the dream alive.

Olympic lifting is a ridiculous clown show. The clean and jerk is cool but the facking snatch is one of the stupidest things I have ever seen. WTF at hurling a weight over your head like that, what the hell is the point? Olympic weightlifting should be deadlift and clean and jerk.

Re: Project ABP

at risk of getting trolled, why bother going to extremes instead just a regular workout routine and what the point of trying to get super jacked given that the physical attraction peak is not that of a body builder but rather someone with a v chest and low fat content

Well, anti-hero has shown an interest in men with thongs already, so his view of what is aesthetically pleasing is probably somewhat out of the norm.

Also, evoprofilegif.gif.

Bear in mind this fella is 5'6 on a good day. Ever seen a successful straight male bodybuilder without a fairly hot gf? Neither have I...

Re: Project ABP

I agree with pretty much wat Emoken said. The plus side is when the aspie progressives come and flex the "I'm stronger than you" card, they don't realize they brought piss to a **** fight, which is also pretty amusing.

Also, nothing like the body of Ilya Ilin, who aside from the hair, could fit into any random office as a kinda chunky thicc boi. Even the peak drugged Soviets. (RIP Yuri)

Anyway, I can can show up to an PLing meet and finish. Cha, for example, literally wouldn't be able to total. He'd bomb out.

Also, loco, pump the breaks on the idiot trolling. I know this is your thing, but you're getting way out there man. Know your bro died and ****, but posting really dumb challenges and hot takes prob isn't the way to deal with it.

OP:
Divulge terms of loco deals and we can advocate for you. E.g. how much per orange did you get for cashing (otherwise uncashable) chips? This is protected speech on a gamblin' man forum, loco can't silence you (fact: this is what protected speech is!). Grunch at your own peril k?

Re: Project ABP

That squat day looks beyond ridiculous, 80 reps??

I thought it was 30 reps and then 30 down reps, so 60 total.
