I'm a tourist and I've noticed a lot of people here seem to hate powerlifters, why is that?
The only reason I've seen is that many of them are fat, but there's also a lot of powerlifters that are in good shape too.
Why the powerlifter hate?

powershitters ruin physiques
twink zoomers getting upset that they went to the gym and some 60 year old retired father of 3 was bench pressing their squat PR for reps, so they go home and cry about it on IST
just jealousy and cope.
Annoying gay alert.
>anything less than praise is just jealousy
Fat woman logic
Coming from place where i can bench some twinks deadlift max, this is prpbably true
Because it’s a normie tier sport now that attracts a bunch of annoying gays.
Next poster is an annoying gay!
i guess people can't comprehend why would you lift just to be the strongest instead of looking for the best aesthetics
I don't like it but i understand the desire to lift more
Because they do 1 rep a day of deadlift, eat double eggs and steak for breakfast, never do cardio then say 'hurr durr me athlete'.
Body builders do 50 reps of baby weight and machines, eat 4 servings of rice, then pose in a mirror and say hur dur me athlete.
Strongman is the only athletic strength sport.
Nobody thinks you look like an athlete, so you seethe at those that do despite being weaker than you (at certain motions)
>The only reason I've seen is that many of them are fat
That is exactly the reason. I lift for aeanesthetics. If you are fat it doesn't matter that you can lift twice as much as me, you still look like shit.
Because they conflate fatasses who bench 225 on 5x5 after 6 months with actual powerlifters
Powershitters annoy me because it’s basically just fatties who found an excuse to remain a fatty, when most of them don’t even put up better numbers than your average dude in the gym who’s been brosplitting for the last 2 years and has visible abs.
Because zoomers are lookism gays who are as vane as women. They lift to look good and get pussy because they have insufferable wigger personalities.
most powershitters are fat and ugly
most guys here are teenagers who want to improve their aesthetics so they can get pussy, they couldn't care less about their lifts
powerlifting is the polar opposite of what the average gymcel LULZ refugee desires
I think it just bothers people seeing fat guys lift more than them.
>I think it just bothers people seeing fat guys
there, i fixed it
why do you care what other people look like at the gym? you gay?
on the contrary you have less competition if girls is your goal lmao.
I think I smell a little cope
>I think I smell
You DO smell. Thats the problem. You waft in your smelly BO everywhere you go
Take it up with the gym manager or make a homegym.
Not my problem, seethe about it.
If anything, I see more seething from powershitters. I’m only 190 and still have a 3pl8 bench, 4pl8 squat, 5pl8 DL and almost 2pl8 OHP. Yet I still look aesthetic at 12% BF, and have decent cardio
Most powershitters I’ve seen have barely better numbers than me, and they weigh about 100 pounds more than me. Plus they can’t run or do anything other than their 3 lifts. Sure, in pure compounds they might be stronger (not even by much), but what’s the point when you’re just fat?
Powershitters deserve to be lumped in with FPH
There's seething both ways, smaller aesthetics guys who don't eat enough to get past ottermode act very insecure a lot of the time but so do the lardasses.
>This dyel thinks he's hot shit when his numbers are not even mediocre at his bodyweight.
In order for his numbers to be good he'd have to be a 74 lmao
>Lifting within the rule set is faking numbers
>What are weight classes
Powerlifters gaslit noobs who wanted to build muscle by telling powerlifting training plus a couple of isolation exercises was the way to do it, resulting in them wasting time in many cases
Big man lift more weight than me make me upset
because they're incels. next question
Everyone hates everything on IST. Making fun of people different than yourself is this site's pastime
>gore on a blueboard
Come on goblina. You can't post shit like this and then be surprised when people gang up on you and cyberbully you.
Powerlifters are fatsos who lift for numbers nobody cares about and look like dogshit.
For 99% of ISTizen, "making it" implies a pic related body - ascended ottermode (80-90% natty peak, 101-12% bodyfat).
Those powerlifter who look good are unironically on roids (hence why they're not fat, since roids burn fat).
IST is a natty board, so we condemn roids.
powershitters are fat. we hate fat people around here
We hate all kinds of strength athletes here, powerlifters aren't special. They're just the easiest to shit on because they're usually the least physically fit out of all of them.
specialization autists who only care about two specific movements in their niche circle and put everything else on the backburner
fake naturals who rely on range-of-motion hacking and gearqueering to minmax everything they can just to get another half-kilo on their total
ruining your physical and mental health with obscene amounts of steroids in the name of vanity and small-time fame
combines the gearqueering of powerlifting with roiding on par or exceeding bodybuilding
vapid cultists who think they're better than everyone while simply being mediocre at lots of things all at once
holocaust victim physiques and vegans
lmao'ing @ ur bone density
There's positives to all of them but it's way more fun to shit on them. Strongman is my personal favorite
Pretty much this.
Just lift, do cardio and stay natty. You'll mog 99% of the men around you.
runners probably make it out the best or natural powerlifters
Casual endurance athletes in general probably make it out the best. Trying to leave humanity behind in any one of those fields is gonna leave you beat up and broken in your old age.
calisthenics bros, we made it nobody hates us
Fuck I forgot
clout chasing "fitness influencers" who work out at the public park because their mom won't pay for their membership at the local club
>kettlebells and indianclub enthusiasts
gamers, the final boss of fitness, there are no negatives
Just curious, what is the ultimate fitness approach in your opinion? Does everything suck according to you?
I was clearly fucking around and showing how each fitness discipline has its stereotypes that people shit on because its fun.
>ultimate fitness approach
There isn't one. Too much variation between different people because of things like genetics, lifestyle, attitude, etc. Closest thing would be something like what
said. Lifting for health and mobility + moderate intensity, low impact cardio probably has the greatest payoff relative to potential risk in terms of health and longevity. Im just a guy though, not an expert
I know you were messing around but I've been thinking lately about what the best personalized fitness regimen would be for me. I could say trying different things out and seeing what sticks but I've already done that. I just like a lot of people online who discuss fitness won't ever excel in the big leagues of any sport so I just want to do my own thing, the question is, what does that entail. I've tried different programs for powerlifting bodybuilding calisthenics I'm just wondering how to combine it all into one.
>I'm just wondering how to combine it all into one.
You can't really do that in a way that provides meaningful progress, at least as a natty. If you end up trying to train powerlifting and bodybuilding at the same time you're more than likely going to just burn yourself out and end up failing at both. What you're looking for is just a plain old generalized strength training program with calisthenics for accessory work; that would be plenty. Just do Starting Strength and add on whatever calisthenics exercises you want until you plateau and stop progressing. If you keep obsessing over a "perfect program" that has everything you want you'll just end up spending all your time thinking and dreaming instead of training
Well I did powerlifting and bodybuilding and powerbuilding programs just to try them out and so I can say I did them. I was thinking about crossfit but I'm not sure about that one. Talking to older people who used to work out, I know that what I'm looking for was once popular before all the modern noise existed. You know, just lifting weights and getting stronger, maybe getting more jacked, healthier heart. Get the endorphins going. Nowadays everything is categorized and it can confuse people.
Sprinterchads win again.
running but with more morons and gunshots
hahaha, I get it.
I don't like a lot of what powerlifting culture stands for. It plays host to a lot of health issues, mainly heart ones. It's all about being "STRONG" and they obsess over that so much it's like they have something to prove. They eat like fat slobs and lift heavy with questionable form while abusing their heart and taking it for granted. There's just nothing there that I see that is positive for health and fitness.
Same reason everyone hates seeing proper obese guys larping with guns and talking about militias
Everyone knows if it comes down to it that fatties can’t do shit. They can’t wipe their arse, walk a flight of stairs, or survive any sort of semi organised warfare
Also their “sport” encourages doing lifts in the shittiest way possible
A. because many of them are fatty
B. because their sport has stupid lifts that encourage people to do them with 1-2in range of motion, compared to oly lifters who universally fling the weight above their head, or strongmen, who do feats that would be expected of a strong man.
C. "power" lifting is a stupid name for a sport that is more akin to forklifting.
It’s one mentally Ill unironic gay who makes these posts after he got btfo in a thread.
>there's also a lot of powerlifters that are in good shape too
you mean roidtrannies?
Powerlifters do a lot to fake their numbers (2" rom for example)
LMAO at thinking a bodybuilder looks like an "athlete"
assthetics fags still can't get laid and are coping per usual
Powershitters are fat fucks who only care about strength. Meanwhile they have a BMI of 28 and develop sleep apnea because why be healthy?
Why go to the gym to get healthier when you can do the total opposite and eat yourself into diabetes, high blood pressure, and a broken body.
Even talking to that one powershitter with the eyeballs popping out of his head. His only goal in life was to get stronger, and that he's going to keep going until he breaks his body.
That's not remarkable. It's not inspiring. It's not admirable. It's just Ronnie Coleman all over again. In the pursuit of numbers you lose it all and put yourself in a wheelchair. And because you're natty you look like dogs hit.
The life of a powershitter is this video. But instead of golden nuggets, it's hitting PRs
>And because you're natty you look like dogs hit.
Being strongfat>POWER GAP>
Why is he struggling with 190kg?
everyone that does to the gym squats/benches/deadlifts or at the very least benches.
seeing other people stronger is very upsetting
I only hate them because they hog the racks and benchs for 45 minutes just to do a total of 10 reps.
A few days ago I did almost my entire Push workout before one fat fuck was done with the bench
Because the fixation IST had on powerlifter style training from the early days of the board came from a place of an insecurity-driven elitism, and now we’re all 30+ and grew out of it so we realized it’s better to just be thin and enjoy life.
Correction: it was Blackpilled uglyish nerds deciding to roid/SS + gomad because they figured there was no point in trying to lift to look good
Partly why there’s a ton of people who hate isolation work here still
Disgusting gays we have our containment general, why do you feel the need to seethe about us EVERY DAY?????
powerlifters who trick beginners into powerlifting by pretending it's the best way to get a good body are scum
