Are you stronger than your father? Posted on February 7, 2023 by Anonymous Are you stronger than your father?
my dad drank himself into a slow and painful death and died in 2020.
so i guess so
yeah my dad's dead.
Am I stronger than him at his prime? Maybe slightly
Yes my dad is a 5'7 220lbs fat manlet
My dad is a 300 lb DYEL with a huge beer gut, so yes
The only thing you should strive to live up to or surpase your dad in is the finacial department. Who gives a fuck if you Bench more than he did in his prime? Are you making money?
That's a long winded way of saying no
Baki is so fucking cringe
>t. gets mogged by his dad
No, old man strength is real.
Nah, my dad was a gymnast and at 70 still building large sheds on his own at our country house. Also woops my friend's ass at pingpong and my friend is really good while my dad is out of practice. Thanks anon, you made me realize I do have some thing to appreciate about him even though he kinda failed at life.
He is dead so yeah
I surpassed my dad both physically and mentally. First, I started mogging him in chess so hard that I had to start losing on purpose just to let him keep his dignity. Then we started armwrestling and eventually I tore his bicep.
My dad was like 5'7" maybe 150 and a chronic methamphetamine user. I mogged him by the time I moved out at 14. Today I'm 31, 6'3" 230lbs and am close to 2/3/4/5, whereas I doubt he could have benched 1 pl8 when he was alive.
>reading baki on a fucking iPhone
have a nice day
My dad died when I was 8 at the age of 57.
Everyday, at some point, I ask myself if will I even get to be 57.
yes, but he is still the hardest working man i know.
Physically yes, regarding brain and stress endurance not all al.
That man was forged by responsibilities and 14h a day work 5/7 for 40 years.
I wish to obtain that mental stamina as well
do you guys wonder if your dad is proud of you?
lmao no i'm an utter disappointment and shame of my bloodline
when i became a father myself i realised that i should be proud of my dad, and frankly, i'm not impressed.
My dad would probably be proud of me if I was a bigshot at some company like him. That's sadly not the life for me. Best I can do is live a life I am proud of, and hope he appreciates it for what it is.
I have no clue what my mentor who actually raised me thinks of me. My biological dad is proud of me since my sisters are such colossal disappointments
My dad tells me frequently he’s proud of me
I really hope so but I don't think he would have approved of my life decisions or behaviour when I was younger.
I think he would be proud of the girls I have and am dating and and my PRs though.
No and I don't care if he is.
i can bench, ohp, squat and dl more than him, but he is an old carpenter and has boomer strength, so i dunno
My dad died from being so fat and out of shape he couldn't roll over and choked on his own mucus like a turtle with covid
My dad is an overweight workaholic and goes for walks and does some yardwork or home improvement stuff in his free time. I run and lift weights so I'd say I'm stronger than him.
I dread the day he dies, even if we've never had the best relationship.
He got the clot shot and almost died. Now he is getting weaker and weaker.
Hes dead soo yeah probably
Did any of you ever actually let go of your anger towards your father if he was abusive to you when you were young, weak, and vulnerable?
Cried my eyes out when I was 22 one night when I went over how my parents behaviour made me a desperate for attention loner that had a difficult time talking to people. I got better, they were just doing what they could even if their choices weren't the best.
I meant actually abusive, if not necessarily physically abusive as well, rather than merely neglectful. Actual selfishness and malice.
I'll share this. My mom sat on the couch and did nothing with me growing up. She didn't take me camping, or out for dinner, or to do anything fun like swimming or skiing. She never encouraged sports. She didn't care if I did my homework or failed. She simply did not care. She would take me to the video store and rent me movies and games and then let me sit in my room alone for hours every single day just looking at a screen. She wouldn't even make me dinner unless I asked. When I was in highschool I dropped out and became a depressed sad stoner who lived in the basement playing video games all day and she just allowed it to happen. When she would come home from work, at best she'd open the basement door and shout down "hi anon" and then close it. At worst she wouldn't do anything and I wouldn't even see her some days. I always wondered what it was about me that made her not want to "try" with me. She made me feel like i did solethong wrong. Then when I became a parent I realized she's just an incredibly lazy person with a crappy attitude. Don't get me wrong I love my mom but it's a bit complicated and sometimes I feel like I could never forgive her for how she raised me. I was blessed to have grandparents in my life who cared. Without them God knows what would've become of me. They were the only sort of normalcy and stability I had in my life. My grandma was more of a mother than my mom ever was. I actually lived with them for a while at one point. I haven't thought about these things in years but your comment reminded me of it. I get how it feels
Glad to hear anon. God bless!
My parents weren’t abusive at me, but there was so much screaming in the house when I was very little it definitively effected my development
My mom also had some sort of attachment disorder where she thought my dad was dead if he came home later from work than he was supposed to. So I have memories at 4-8 of thinking my dad was dead and never coming home and my mom pacing around the apartment and crying
I did eventually forgive them, although we never talked about it
idunno what you went through but i don't consider their behavior towards me abuse because i was a fucking awful kid with turbo autism and burning hatred for any authority from like age 10 and they did everything they could save for sending me to boot camp. i'm 28 now and if anything i admire them for putting up with me for as long as they did.
my dad never did any sport and yet he has forearms stronger and bigger than most 6 plates deadlift specialists
Yes easily my dad is an abusive fat ass
No, my body breaks too easily. He is stronger, or at least he was at my age, I'd wager, being a pathfinder for the British military.
If you ask me, it is a good sign if your son surpasses you in whatever it is you strive in. It means you did well as a father and that your lineage will only get better and better provided your son follows in your footsteps.
I feel like I have failed in this regard.
Yeah, being stronger than my dad feels kind of weird. It’s not the natural order
well my dad died a few years ago of autoerotic asphyxia and had fetanyl in his system (and was just an average middle aged white guy) so I'd say yeah I am since I don't do drugs and haven't gotten into degenerate coomer shit that could kill me (yet) so I'm probably doing pretty well.
Kek I was mogging my old man before HS. He's 5'8 but stocky. I was taller than him when I was 12 and am a head taller than him as an adult.
He's worked a desk job my whole life but been playing sport for most of that time so he's reasonably fit but not anything crazy, so when I started lifting I overtook him pretty much straight away.
I'm hoping my son does the same to me. I'm 6'1 coming from 5'8 and 5'9 parents, and my wife is 5'11, so hopefully my boy gets to 6'4 and height-mogs me.
I won't let him outlift me without a fight though.
I am stronger than 99% of my ancestors for the past five thousand years because of the argicultural revolution.
I would get mogged by my neanderthal ancestors tho, and probably many of my hunter gatherer homo sapien ancestors.
Not just him, but I'd wager the whole male bloodline on that side since medieval times.
Me at 17 (I'm 19 now so fuck off mods)
My Dad at 16 (According to him)
>He never mentioned Deadlift
Don't have lifting numbers for Grandpa and Great Grandpa, but
>Turbo DYEL in every pic of him dating back to the 70s
>Thought the fitness craze of the 80s was "all a bunch of bullshit" (his words)
>Left comfy rent-controlled NYC house to live in Commiefornia in the late 80s.
>Wagie for FedEx for 45+ years. >Supposedly he met Madonna once when he was working in NYC so that's cool I guess
>Couldn't find a job in Ireland so bailed to England. Worked bullshit jobs that only existed because Marshall Plan. Never spoke to his parents again.
>That dried up eventually so he skips town to America, making 4chantards who wouldn't be born for another 50 years seethe (based tbqh)
>Never touched a weight in his life
>Obese in the 60s before Goyslop was even a thing
>DYEL on top of that. Dude had Dr. Eggman proportions
Apparently the whole line going back were poorfag butchers. You know they were poorfags because they couldn't afford to leave during the Great Famine.
So yeah I win.
Go back to Ireland you mick
Yes but he's a crazy distance runner. My brother is stronger than both of us.
yes because every gen x gay is a fat piece of shit with heart disease that thinks they could've won vietnam if only they had been there.
My dad is a vegan these days, so he's weak as fuck.
I need to beat the shit out of him next time I'm in town.
Fucker never did a single good thing for me
>Are you stronger than your father?
Are you strong enough to carry your old man when he's old and feeble? Strong enough to lift him when he falls? That's the only strength that matters.
I thought black people were the only ones who had fathers that failed them. Did 4chan lie to me
>what are percentages and extremes
My dad is 120kg and got arthritis in his 40s so bad that he was forcibly retired and put on a medical pension by the government, while I’m 53kg. I have a much higher ratio of muscle than him (like 6% bf at 5’5 in height) but to be fair he can barely walk without being in agony so I can’t really hold that over him. Due to the size and height difference he will always have an advantage over me in certain aspects though, if he were to sit on me I’d fucking die.
Yes, but it’s my younger brother I compare myself to. I’m still a ways off, I’m stronger but in every other aspect he has me beaten.
