Hmm, i power lift to be healthy and strong >.< Charly don't you think powerlifting can be really good for the body? I read how it increases bone density etc etc

I probably never going to compete. But i don't push it nearly hard enough compared to the real powerlifters in my gym... they are ballsy.

I think it can be good for the body for sure!

I was really referring to guys putting up totals above elite/pro levels.

It's not the "pushing hard" that is the main issue (although that's a part of it). I'd say once you get to those levels, it's more about the sheer poundage that's being move around and what kind of stress that puts on your body. Yea, stronger guys tend to have more muscle and stronger tendons but they're not made of anything special - in the end we are all human, skin and bones. I don't think any of us were really meant to deadlift 700+ pounds but that's the beauty of powerlifting and any other area of interest where people can push their bodies and/or minds to the limits (be it sports or academics).

That being said, I know a couple guys that have torn hammies during warm ups (granted these warm ups were a lot of weight) but for those individuals, they weren't particularly "pushing hard."

Haha what a coincidence.

I might have a super minor tear in my left triceps.

Slight bruise on my tricep. Heavy tricep/lockout work yesterday. Did pin presses (365), floor presses (295), and skullcrushers (145), so that might've done it. But then again I am super clumsy and forgetful so I might've forgetten I ran into something.

I'll keep an eye on it for the weekend. If bruising gets worse, it's probably a minor tear. If not, I probably just ran into something or it's a super super minor tear.

Uh Oh :0

On another note I'm selling my couch and buying a futon mattress. Just going to lay it on the floor and sit indian style or lay down with shoulders pinned back and hips not in extension, stoked on this cause couches reinforce the shittiest posture.

Style forums, I start macro economics today so be prepared to have macro econ related lifting statuses. Gonna take modafinil and read the whole book in 2 days maybe.


Jewish brah is starting another ephedrine cycle tomorrow, his new plan is not to eat for 2 weeks, seems legit.

Yesterday, I got this idea of not taking a job in the upcoming summer and not go on any vacations or events of any sort. I'd move home to my parents (I'm 21) and spend every day lifting, eating and doing mobility work. It seemed like a good idea at the time, haha.

Like this idea. Some of my favorite times was 4months after graduating college. I was waiting for my girlfriend to finish her pre relocating work before we moved. I was living at my moms house and all i did was lift with friends, eat, hungout with a person who had 0 furniture (which gave me the futon mattress idea), played video games, and went to the beach.
