      Same here, except under the clever guise of being a rugby player and athlete.

    I'm a show pony, not a work horse. Work horses get shot when they can't fulfil their purpose, show ponies get show bitches.

    Lol, this is retarded strength is strength. If you get stronger at barbell lifts which is the easiest way to gain muscle and strength while still maintaining stabilization aspect then you will get stronger in a way that applies to your day to day life

    I lift because it's fun and makes me look good naked. I'm a software engineer. I don't need to simulate loading bags of concrete into a cement mixer.

    I think when your goal is to be genuinely strong you realize at some point that spamming basic barbell movements is by far not enough, even if you add a lot of weight to your sq/dl/bench. Change a vector of movement or the starting point or weight distribution and you suddenly become hardly better than any other guy. It's definitely worth it to do a huge variety of movement patterns and different approaches, at least when you want to be actually strong, not just bench strong. Not saying it's a must, but it's probably smarter to keep things diversified than to spam conventional simple barbell movements all the time.

      300 is where it starts getting pretty hard depending on what you're trying to do with it.

    If barbell movements dont apply to real life applications why do most top athletes do them?

    The best bodybuilders are the shittiest workers because they reach muscle failure as efficiently as possible.
