      Because most of them go bloatlord mode because of muh leverages and muh recovery
      Also low reps grow less muscle.

      Many of these retards join a gym to look good but at some point they use the 'muh powerlifting' as a way of coping for the fact that they lack any self control to follow a diet.
      Most of them are simply fat fucks that use the excuse of 'becoming strong is the only thing that matters to me' to gorge food without feeling any remorse.

      Fuck these fat retards.Most of them look like picrel and unironically believe theyre healthy even when theyre clinically obese.

      Unironically why would you expect to get a good physique from powerlifting? I'm not attacking you, but if your goal is aesthetics why wouldn't you train with that as your #1 priority? Some powerlifters develop impressive physiques (mainly manlets and steroid users) but many don't. Which is understandable because powerlifting training is designed with one goal in mind: to improve 1rm bench, squat, and deadlift, not to build muscle.

      If you enjoy powerlifting then do it, but know that if your main goal is aesthetics then powerlifting may not ever get you there. Don't do it just because SS shills on reddit said training purely for strength will make you look like Steve Reeves

        The easiest way to increase your sbd is to get bigger anon. If you aren't gaining muscle, then there's only so much in the way of neurological gains to get. However, people that specialize in PL tend to look worse because they are going to not be as lean for performance purposes, and glamor muscles won't be emphasized as much because they don't contribute to your total

          Yes, but only to a certain point. If it was 1:1 more muscle = more weight on the bar then heavyweight enhanced powerlifters would all look like Kevin Levrone. The fact is, if you want to be a good powerlifter, you're going to have to spend a lot of time doing singles, doubles, and triples with long rest between sets, ie the exact opposite of how to train if you want to build muscle.

          Most powerlifters do not have impressive physiques. They look like fat guys, skinny guys, or thick guys somewhere in between. Very few have physiques that would stand out in even local bodybuilding contests. My point is just that, if your #1 goal is building muscle, then train with that in mind.

            No, it's to get bigger. Arching doesn't inherently increase weight, and neither does sumo. If what you said was true than literally nobody in a high environment would bench without a max grip and big arch or pull conventional, but there are actually quite a few people that don't. Your cope and jealousy are showing.

                My claim was that it doesn't inherently increase weight. Which that chart proves, because if at the highest level everyone isn't doing something then it's clearly not an advantage. There are plenty of people that pull either exactly the same conventional vs sumo, or massively outpull their sumo with conventional. ROM is not the be all end all. Joint structure and limb proportions play a bigger role than ROM does.

                Has your pea-sized brain ever considered that the reason they don't do sumo is because they're not flexible enough for it or that they can't nail down the technique? There is no universe in which reducing ROM doesn't also increase the weight.

                Has your pea-sized brain ever considered that maybe they have tried incorporating sumo for a long period of time and it still didn't matter? Do you honestly believe that a world class lifter wouldn't have been able to build up enough flexibility or nail technique down? That's honestly a brain damaged thought right there. Even in equipped lifting not everyone pulls sumo and unlike raw there is a clear advantage in pulling sumo due to how the suit works.

                ???? The sole purpose of sumo is not to reduce ROM. It's to recruit hip and leg musculature slightly differently. There are also a good number of more moderate or frog stance lifters that pull more that way than conventional. You really don't understand anything from a competitive PL perspective.

      They get fat mostly and if they cut they lose all their strength. They are not "just a cut away" from being bodybuilders which is a common cope you hear. They're all fake natties as well, trained with powerlifters I know they're fake natties. SARMS minimum.

      Their training routines almost all have squats twice a week and when you squat heavy twice a week your effort in everything else goes to shit. That's why you see what I call the "diaper physique" where their ass and hip flexors are huge and everything else sucks.

      Sure you can be a 155lb lightweight powerlifter and have some definition but then you get enjoy the herniated disks and snapped knees. They don't tell you that part.

      Just apply progressive overload to an actually intelligently designed routine designed to build a physique. You get strong too, look good and are injury free.

        Squat frequency is heavily individual. Can be anywhere from 1x to 7x. And you're assuming that they squat heavy both sessions, which usually isn't the case, though this may vary depending on periodization style.

        >Effort in everything else goes to shit
        You realize that bench and deadlift specialists also exist, right? This seems entirely based on your opinion of PL training as opposed to how PL training actually is.

    Agree about powershitters and roids.

    But if you're lifting for 20 years and you are strong because of it and much better looking and feeling than you otherwise would be, then why compare yourself to others.

    Lifting is not some massive ordeal you expect to be "compensated" for, it's a few minutes at the gym every week working out. If you weren't lifting you would be forced to do more cardio anyway to feel right and healthy.
