Had a guy next to me wearing a belt while biking today.

We can all agree that it makes you look pretty baller by keeping your gut in so it looks like you have a sick drop, but you need to look like you also lift.

Nope. Feels good man.

It's like going to your first class at a Brazilian jiujitsu dojo with a gracie-barra gi and a bunch of patches sewn in. :/

If guys aren't embarrassed quarter squatting 185, then no I'm not embarrassed wearing sleeves doing 265 properly for reps. Also, hoping it'll help with IT band issues.

Nice!
Yeah if you can, get a local coach so he can be with you when you train. My guy is in the other part of the country and while he's an awesome guy with a ton of experience and knowledge, online coaching has its flaws.

I fit that description pretty damn well, but I honestly don't give a shit what anyone thinks of me. It also helps that pretty much everyone in my current gym wears compression tights as pants, knee sleeves, lifting shoes or even singlets when they train.

On another note, the gym is living up the to olympic weightlifting stereotypes:
One of the better olympic lifters looks like he has greek heritage and there's a chinese man teaching his sub10 year old son (who he even got tiny squat shoes) how to perform the oly lifts.

Speaking of olympic weightlifting, I came to the gym an hour earlier a couple of days back and it appears that was the hour on the day when all the weightlifters train. Dudes in their middle teens wearing singlets squatting 3 plates super upright ATG for reps. Seeing those guys I wished I didn't waste my first years of training. Anyway, those squats were way more pretty than PL squats. Honestly, weightlifting looks more impressive than powerlifting.

Weightlifting is definitely more impressive than powerlifting in my opinion. I feel the same as you, wish I had started a lot younger, and if I had, definitely would have leaned more towards weight lifting.

American Highschools should have weight lifting teams and competitions same as wrestling or football or whatever.

As long as they aren't trying to give out advice who cares.

Yeah i'm aware of it, it's near my job. Kind of self defeating, but I think at 22 it would be very difficult to become a proficient weightlifter. Powerlifter is much more attainable I think.

You are 22 not 40. You have decades to be a good powerlifter and I'm sure the carryover from oly lifting to powerlifting is great.

It just seems like the movements for weightlifting are something that need to be ingrained in you while you are still growing and developing. I dunno
post #42313 of 57312
It does take a shit ton of reps to get good at the movements. Powerlifting is way more rewarding in my opinion and it seems like bodybuilding would be more rewarding too. Talk about DYEL lifters, take a look at that average dude the olympic lifts.

I still olympic lift on saturday for cardio, they are fun movements.

What do you guys think of having a mock RHET meet?

We can do it on a weekend, like a Sunday or something. Everyone stands on a scale with a paper so we know the date, then films them do the major 3
