    Doing olympic lifts without any need outside of posting on social media. If you were actually good at it, you would be on a team or competing. Anything else is just snap city waiting to happen.

      I agree with this. I was talking more about regular strength training though. People always say someone's ego lifting when they're doing 40 lb flies or big dumbell sets.

        If someone can do 40 pound flies with good form then their pecs are strong as fuck. They're not egolifting

        Let's settle this once and for all. Give me your best definition of ego lifting that isn't just "lifting more than me"

        When you compromise your form completely, usually applied to range of motion or using momentum, to lift a weight that you wouldn't normally be able to handle. Like the guy who's doing cheat curls and just let's the weight fall back down without controlling it or the guy doing 1/3 rep squats and pretends they're full reps

      snatches and cleans are magnificent lifts
      ego lifting is doing 90% and up without being on a program
      snatching light weight while being strict in your form is the opposite of ego lifting because you’ll look like a silly pussy with the weight needed to make a snatch look smooth and perfect

    Ego lifting is pretending you are progressing when you actually have to keep working on basics before trying to increase the weights. It has nothing to do with failing a set. Dyels will say otherwise because they don't understand failure is part of the workout

      This.
      I can bench 180 maybe 4 times while touching down on my chest. I could probably "bench" 200+ at a 3/4th rep and using hip thrust to get the bar moving back up. It's egolifting to say my 1rm is 200 and actively cheat-rep that number in the gym.
      The main problem is, you can keep "progressing" that cheat rep to higher and higher numbers, but the chance of injury also becomes much higher over time. If I ever say, fucked up and went too deep (aka normal ROM) I'd fucking behead myself.

    The actual definition of ego lifting is attempting to lift more weight than you're actually capable of lifting and sacrificing form in the process.

    For example:
    >Having to hitch the weight up on a deadlift.
    >Unable to squat with full ROM because of how heavy the weight is.
    >Having to use momentum to get the weight up on something like a lateral raise or bicep curl.

      Wrong. Its alright to fail a set especially when you are trying to progress. What you meant to say is looking like you dont know how to actually lift and keep on adding weights

        There's a difference between testing a max and failing and just arbitrarily loading up weight to use shit form and call it success

    Ego lifting is when you purposefully load up on weight you know you can't manage with good posture but can quarter or half rep, just so you can impress either the people who are either completely new at the gym or inexperienced.

    Ego lifting is lifting because any part of what that lifting might bring you (the muscles themselves, the pictures for insta, etc.) will elevate any kind of status you have relative to other people (social, sexual, etc.).

      With the most basic of basic bitches and normies, yes, but with people who can look at a deadlift and see a twink struggle with 315 while looking like a red quasimodo, the only thing they will feel is cringe at the retard pulling a disc for insta clout.
      It ain't real lifting.

    "Ego lifting" is a pointless label that's been co-opted by anyone that wants to level a criticism against someone else in the gym. A good definition of ego-lifting should be as follows:
    Executing (or attempting to) a lift that is weighted too heavily to fulfill the purpose of the lift.
    For example, if your goal for a particular session is chest hypertrophy and the exercise you've selected is the bench press, don't hit three sets of doubles for weeks in a row because you don't want to lift less than 225 but you can't actually hit 5-8 reps of 225. Your ego is getting in the way of accomplishing the goal of your lift (growing your chest).

      True, but we can also add that it comes from a need for validation from the other gym goers or social media, and the perceived reactions is what drives the lifter to disregard proper form and safety.

        That's true. I don't have any social media and I'm a sperg so the social validation side didn't really occur to me.

    I'm going to say deliberately using lighter plates to attempt to seem like you're lifting more is ego lifting. For instance, 5x25 and 1x10 bumper plates to fill up the bar instead of 3x45 for a sumo deadlift is something I see a lot on instagram. Bonus points if you're using the black rubber weights that don't change width depending on their weight.

      That's not really ego-lifting, that's just social media deception. Lol. Nobody's getting an ego boost pretending to struggle with a 315lbs deadlift with huge ass rubber plates that fool normies.

    Is not ego lifting because I am lifting heavy to satisfy my ego, dyels call it ego lifting because it crushes their egos because is more weight that they can lift.
