I think a gain of anything significant is worth bragging about. It's all relative, but as long as your numbers are going up you should be damn proud of it. Be it a 295 DL or a 600 DL.

Markl I fast and eat after work

Fast all day
6pm: Protein + dextrose ---> gym
Then a big meal as soon I finish

Works really well, the sugar rush after fasting all day gives lots of energy for workout
Then very satisfying to have a big dinner

Yes, I agree with this sentiment in general. People should be proud of improving themselves. Most of us started as tiny DYEL phaggots with dreams to be big and strong and making those improvements is tremendously motivating. I still remember the first time I pulled 225 pounds; now I regularly power snatch that much.

However, what ticks me off is people slamming plates when they just PR a 135lb bench, or throwing weights when they just curled 40lb for a set. Hell, I've heard less of a ruckus from someone clean and jerking 400 lbs.

I dunno maybe the noob gains get people thinking they can add 15lb every week forever and they're gonna be a hulking bad ass in 6 months and so they think they can behave like a douchebag. Then you have the experienced guys that put in 6 weeks of work to eke out a 20lb PR and know they've got another 6 weeks to try and PR again, so they just do a little fist pump and move on.

Damn, 20 pounds in 6 weeks... I would love that big of a gain consistently haha

Gotta be proud of PRs but at the same time remind yourself that you are a skinny DYEL phaggot to keep that internal rage burning to further power your gain.

Yeah, Ppl training seriously recognise others that train seriously. Nods of acknowledgement are given.
What I hate about bar dropping is that all the bars in my gym are now bent.

Strange thing about my new gym is that there are a lot of big guys but most of them seem to be relatively weak.

The stronger I get, the more I realise I know shit about fuck and hence stay humble when I hit a goal I've been aiming at for some time.

I was more excited to squat 225 than 315.

ffffuuuu.gif terrible timing for injury as a local meet just got scheduled for Jan. 4.

I'm really tempted to suck it up and do it. It would remove my temptation to have the perfect lead-up to the meet and just go lift without worrying about weight classes or hitting certain weights, etc.

What say you RHET?

Yeah. I think I need to just do it for the experience and suck it up when it comes to wanting to hit certain numbers in a certain class.
post #37484 of 57256
Yep. Can't tell you how many times I thought about backing out of my comp because I didn't think I'd be my absolute best. So glad I didn't. You learn a ton by competing.
