"powerlifting is awesome, except for some of the fat physiques"
Well he does pretty much say he doesn't like that there are fat people in it. It's not like he just says I want to stay in the 198lb class, he says that there being fat athletes is a negative aspect. I'd never want to way more then say 220 or 230 either, but I don't look down upon people wanting to weigh 350lb. There are some pretty fat 400lb guys in strongman, I'm not going to take away anything from any of them because they're fat.
"As a quick example, the reason that a lot of powerlifters are fat is because they simply don't care, or because they mistakenly think they need to "carb up" the night before and the day of every meet, thinking they need to "replenish their glycogen" for the 9 totals reps they'll do in competition. Then, after the meet, they'll pig out at a local buffet to "recover." Add to all this that most lifters tend to take a week off from training before and after each meet, and before you know it you have a recipe for bodycomp disaster."
This is literally retarded, why would you not do everything you possibly can precontest to win? So your going to keep peaking up until the day before your meet and not take advantage of a 24 hour weigh in?
