      It's unbelieveable how hard millenials got shafted as a species. Not only were they the first ones to experience what it feels like to own nothing and be happy but also even their gains were stolen by powerlifting and cardio. While it might be too late for millenials as they have expired and become irrelevant. Zoomers have a divine duty to fix this injustice by being far right and lifting 3x10.

        You know, only nerds used the internet in the 2000's and early 2010's, that explain the invasion of powershitters in fitness communities.

        Once normies and Chads started using the internet, powervirgins suffered a massive holocaust, they were removed from IST and reddit.

        Powershitters were literally segregated by redditors lmfao

      Powershitters (on average) are ones of nicest people in the gym (same is valid for any competing athlete). What are you talking about? Just visit specialized powerlifting/strongman gym and see how better crowd there is compared to the regular one. Both in terms of gym etiquette and community.

    I've never even seen a powerlifter at my gym. Sometimes a fat guy comes in and bench presses. Sometimes a manlet does deadlifts. I guess those are "powershitters"? idk.
    But the weirdos here are obsessed with them. Like every time they leave the house a powershitter is blocking their path but in reality the only powerlifters IST incels see are on the internet.

    We grew up and realized that most of the aesthetic guys were on roids the whole time, lying to us as fake natties

    The pre social media fitness culture was all about powerlifting to get big, you'd see these very big and lean guys and that's what made normal kids like me at the timr (and many others) get tricked into programs like Texas method, SS, strong lifts 5x5.
    Then we finished those programs, we were fat, T Rex mode, and nowhere near our idols. But it was ok, we just didn't workout hard enough. Our heroes put in the effort. Mark wallburg woke up at 4am everyday working out twice a day. That was the cope we told ourselves.

    Now with social media, with everyone getting exposed as frauds. The only ones who are natties are the fat fricks we resembled in the mirror. The entire thing was a scam. Powerlifting only made you fat. We didn't want to be fat, we wanted to be huge and lean like the bodybuilders. So now, you have a generation of guys like me who got tricked into being overweight and buying unnecessary supplements and products.

    I've since cut, and I've since switched to a proper split (bro split - the split they said I'd make 0 gains with) now I'm lean, I'm aesthetic. I'm not as strong, but to be lean and strong was a pipe dream that they sold us in the first place. I've since woken up and realized lean >lbeats strength any day

    So now I shit on powershitters. Because, if you didn't read anything else I wrote at least read this...

    WHAT THE FRICK IS THE POINT OF LIFTING IF AT THE END YOURE A FAT PIECE OF SHIT WHO CANT EVEN DO A SINGLE PULL UP???????

      oh wow, someone that actually get's it. It's pretty clear that we are reaching a post-self-improvement era now, and most people are starting to realize that 90% of what has been said about natural gains is kinda bs. If you wanna be strong and natural, and I mean really strong, you either need to be born with the best genes in the world or get fat. But let's be real, most people lift because they wanna look good and have some level of strength and cardio, while at the same time most people don't have the time to do that, so going full bro split and taking some roids seems like the best bet. If you know what you are doing then go for it, enjoy your youth while you still can.

      The only reason powerlifting makes you fat is because you're a speedrunner. You would be fricking stoked if you could bench 4pl8 right now. You don't actually want to work for it. You want that secret technique that gets you a gold medal and makes you better than that guy with a "shitty bench for his bodyweight" even though he's big and lean like you used to aspire to be for 5 seconds of your life and in the jungle where bar path doesnt matter his bigger muscles put out more force than yours.

        High level bodybuilding yes, being somewhat lean with your beginner gains and 2pl8 bench and spinning wheels for 5 years is also coined "bodybuilding".
        Also natural bodybuilding as in actually getting down to single digit bf% and going on stage is a meme for natural lifters. They look best in the off-season at 12-16%.
        In strength sports you can at least be competitive because the gap between roided and non-roided numbers is way smaller than roided vs natural bodybuilding.

    Powerlifting is a sport, and the training regimen required for powerlifting is a sports training regimen— However, it is a sports training regimen that masquerades as a lifestyle training regimen and, for that reason, people therefore resent it. People resent bodybuilding for similar reasons, albeit to a lesser degree because it is had less of an impact on training information that’s available to the public. This is also why I avoid calling myself either a “powerlifter,” or a “bodybuilder,” even though I’ve sometimes been called one by some of the old head powerlifters at my gym. I am simply a person who trains to gain strength, according to his own routine, diet, and desires, and I will also enjoy the aesthetic benefits that come with the territory.

      Case in point: the powershitter's antithesis, the marathoner. Both accomplish impressive physical feats, but they both require specialized training that is detrimental to most non-participants' fitness goals. Most people will never compete in either event, and so the tradeoffs necessary for specializing in one event or the other are not worth it. If one were to ask a marathoner for training advice and then follow it, one shouldn't be surprised that they turned into a low-t dyel.

      The term "bodybuilding" was coined by Eugene Sandow before he created the first ever physique competition. It refers simply to the art of physical development by means of resistant training. Anyone who prioritizes hypertrophy in the gym is engaged in bodybuilding. You need not compete. Also if you really, really like being strong on SBD, you enjoy maxing out on SBD, and you train for that goal, you are for all intents and purposes a powerlifter. You are doing powerlifting, even if you've never attended a meet.

                It depends on the person. For me it is very easy to be lean and very hard to bulk up. I think actually this is the case for most people - most NFL linemen will quickly drop a bunch of weight once they retire and no longer have to force feed themselves. And I've heard from a lot of big lifters that the eating is the hardest part. They all have outrageous stories of the crazy things they've done to force more food down the hatch.
                To get lean all you have to do is NOT eat. NOT doing something is very easy.

      Its infinitely harder to lift heavy weights than do pullups as victim weight. Babies and kids can do pullups too.

      The main goal of fitness is to prolong your life, stay healthy and attractive (young).
      Most sports atheletes who are on a professional level retire by 30 since they destroy their bodies.
      A muscular male at lower body fat (12-15%) will always look better than a muscular male at 20%+ bodyfat.
      There is absolutely nothing healthy about overeating, becoming fat just to lift heavier man-made metal than the fat guy next to you.

      People have different goals. For some people it's to lift heavy weights. That's it. People lifting for women six-packs or longevity should stop claiming everyone has the same goal as them. You should have a nice day

    The 2010s were an obnoxious time because it got all the training concepts and theories and camps and it's divided it between the strength guys and the bodybuilders. And it placed a lot of pressure on you to be one or the other. And both camps had things of value that you were supposed to disregard if it wasn't in your camp.
    If you ask the powershitters what bodybuilding training was all about, they'd say it's all low training frequency, high volume, high reps, mind muscle connection, low weights, no progressive overload, training for a pump, etc. it all fell onto stuff that's either not true, or it is true & it's a good thing & they should do it too, or it's an admittedly bad thing.

      Aren't compound lifts really good because as the name implies, you work a lot of muscles with one exercise thereby maximizing the efficiency.

      • 2 months ago
        Anonymous

        Compounds are a good base because they hit a lot of muscles at once, generally proportionately to actual movements. But they're not everything. Maximum efficiency implies maximum unit output - depending on the goal, that might mean running intensive splits with lots of isolations. Most of the time though it'll be a foundation of compounds with antagonist isolations and some assistance work.

Anyone who trains for aesthetics must be a mentally ill roidtroony with an eating disorder, grotesque pizza-like skin, and enlarged organs from HGH who will die of heart failure at 25.

    for powerlifting, you do realize that there are weightclasses, right? It's like looking at the fat olympic lifters from iran/caucasus in the 109+ kg weightclass and taking that as representative of the total.

      Basically this. The panda dunks/Nike blazers wearing giganormie powerlifters look up to the lighter weight, athletic looking powerlifters. No one here pays attention to Instagram, hence the fat powersharter connotation.

    Mostly because as a 166lbs boxer, I can kick all their asses in under a minute apiece, because that's 50 seconds longer than it takes for them to get winded.

        So you're not actually that strong, considering you can get your ass kicked by an amateur a third your size, because you spent all your time powershitting.

        do you lift weights as a boxer and do heavy functional training?

        I've heard alot of talk about how much dogma there is in boxing with weights.

        Every other sport moved past the "muscles and weights make you slow bruhh" phase in the 70s and 80s except for boxing.

          I boxed years ago and the effects are now deeply engrained. I have been lifting but not long not hard enough to be musclebound until very recently. Italian suits are no longer for me. I get mired and groped for my gains.
          When you weights there is frightening trade off in performance loss when gains emerge. The recovery gains require of you require you to slack on boxing training which is psychological hell for most head bashing simpletons. For most knuckleheads any signal that signifies a worsening is interpreted in bird brain season values rather than long life history strategy hefty investment. I have gotten bigger and slower and it takes seperate training to speed back up but when that is achieved my power is next level seeing I have earned my next weightclass. Most guys I know stay happy in their low weightclasses and train like horsejockeys trying to maximize their physique as is instead of becoming the biggest baddest version they can be.

    Thankfully we’ve evolved past this bullshit and more people are starting to realize that you need to actually train and live like an athlete if you want optimal health and an attractive physique. But we won’t forget the damage that powerlifters online did to all of us when we started out (myself included).

      Squatting and deadlifting is good for almost everyone, athlete or not. The frequency, weight and technique are the only variables you stupid DYEL. Especially those first 3, they'll all benefit from squatting and deadlifting, especially the woman.

        Ok I understand the importance of barbell lifts but there was in fact a good decade where people on the internet acted like that was the only thing you had to do to get in shape.
        Also the moment that Tom Brady’s or Lebron’s personal trainer prescribed them squats and deads is the moment that dude is looking for a new job. A lot of athletes will not benefit from deadlifts.

            Because most athletes are better off doing training that will actually benefit their sport. Deadlifts are a pretty static movement that doesn’t train explosiveness or coordination, that’s why football players do cleans instead.

                The point is that morons think they can just lift weights and do nothing else and be fit. It’s cus lifting is the easiest and most fun part of fitness so they get emotionally attached to doing it and only it.
                Everyone loves going to the weight room and hitting PRs, but when you show up to practice and you’re doing hill sprints or suicide sprints or some slayer circuit workout or whatever, it sucks dick but it’s just as important as strength

                The reason pro athletes do silly crap with medicine balls is because lifting is hard.

                You completely missed the point of his post. Lifting is difficult because recovery is difficult. Lifting heavy and intense workouts are reserved for the off-season when athletes don't have to perform every other night.

                People get told to lift because they want to get muscular. The fact that very few people get big and strong shows how hard it is.
                Running, using machines, doing 'functional training' is much easier.

              Conjugate method is literally half explosiveness training. I hope you realize that. Yeah, standard DL is slow, but that's not effective by itself for much except maximum output. Specificity and whatnot.

            Yeah Someone getting off the couch for the first time would benefit more from improving their cardio, flexibility, mobility and lowering body fat and RHR. Not saying they shouldn’t lift weights but lifting is just one piece of the puzzle. There are like 12 factors of athleticism and static barbell lifts only really train strength while ignoring endurance, mobility, speed, aerobic and anaerobic capacity and others.
            This is exactly what I’m talking about. You morons think that deadlifting is like the single most important excercise when it’s really just one out of hundreds of things a well rounded healthy athlete can do to improve their fitness

Any other position player in football is going to squat and deadlift. Every skater in hockey is going to squat and deadlift. Almost every baseball player is going to squat and deadlift.

      The big barbell compounds are vital and should be part of every self respecting routine
      The thing is that you DON'T NEED to follow a powertard routine to add these lifts to your routine
      You don't need to listen to lardasses telling you to keep eating a huge caloric surplus, else you will never reach le 5pl8 deadlifts
      99% of people who goes to the gym never reaches 1/2/3/4 to begin with, and they don't need to follow a powerlard goal to begin with
      You don't NEED to keep breaking a plateau, you can keep lifting the same numbers forever but sleep like a baby at night knowing your body and heart are fully healthy
