The Ultimate Powerlifter

Create: 05/05/2006 - 07:18
Dave Coleman, owner of Gorilla Barbell, wants to build the ultimate powerlifter. Which three powerlifters would you choose to combine into one to make an unbeatable powerlifter? Coleman:

Who can build the best Frankenstein Power Lifter (the idea works for body builders too, and I'll start that thread later)? You can only use a lifter once for any given lift....meaning you can't have the same guy for both the squat and the bench, you need three different guys for the three different lifts to make your monster: Squat, Bench, and Deadlift.

If The Top Natural Lifters Used Steroids

Create: 05/05/2006 - 07:02
An Anabolic Minds poster questions whether a lifetime drug free lifter who had established an advanced strength base would respond better to using steroids than someone who hadn't already maximized their genetic potential. He asks:

If you took the strongest lifetime Natural powerlifters in the world and put them on steroids, GH, and any other drugs you can think of, how much stronger do you think they would get? Do you think that a person could go from Squatting 600 and benching 400 (raw w/o powerlifting gear) to squatting 1000 and benching 700 with powerlifting support gear and maximum drug use? I personally don't see why this wouldn't be entirly possible. Most people don't agree with me, and I can't figure out why. What is the deal with these people who are lifting 700+ and squatting 1000+? How strong do you think they would be had they never touched a drug in thier life?

When To Return To Training After A Meet

Create: 05/05/2006 - 06:22
JRN, who just participated in his first meet, now has questions about when to return to training after a meet. Again the members of Iron Trybe provide advice.

when do you guys get back into the gym? first meet ever was sunday, I still feel like hell... funny you guys say that..and I love hearing your opinions b/c I got totally crushed physically. I don't know if it was the adrenaline or the fact I gained a ton of weight in the month beforehand (on purpose) but it just totally kicked my ass..I don't feel depressed...more like okay, I had a goal to go 3-3 and do a meet, now I did fucking what?

The Great Brian Siders Debate

Create: 05/04/2006 - 07:14
A Monster Muscle poster wonders why Brian Siders gets as much credit as he does. Other posters offer their opinions on why he is one of the best, if not the best, superheavyweight lifting today. The original poster questions Siders' reputation:
I don't get it, Siders is a great SHW, but there are a bunch of great SHW: Thompson, Frank, Aiches, Childress, Bolton, and Lewis, not to mnetion the the great srongmen: Savickas, Virastuk, Marius Pud.,and Phil Pfister. When Kaz was on top in powerlifting he went over to the WSM and dominated, and Reinholdt dominated, Siders goes to the Arnold and get his butt handed to him, like I said I don't get it. Garry Frank is an awesome lifter, the only one over 2800 and he is fat, Lewis is fat, all the SWH are fat, but no one calls Siders fat and he looks just like the others, and he even weighs close to them, so what is the reason for so much love? Ed Coan out squats him, Goggins out squats him and there alot of people who out bench him, and his dead is not among the best either, shoot there are guys almost hundred lbs. lighter that out pull him, and I would not be surprized to see Josh Bryant beat him at the NERB. I don't want this to sound like I am against Brian, I am not! I just can't stand the double standard.

Teen Phenom Eddie Debus To Concentrate On Raw Lifting

Create: 05/04/2006 - 06:48
Teenage powerlifting phenom Eddie Debus has decided that in the future most of his lifting will be done unequipped. Debus:

Going over to the raw side.... whos coming with me? Ive decided that after nationals and possibly worlds this year I'll be competing raw from then on. I MIGHT put gear on once a year for a big meet but other than that its going to be about pure, unadulterated, raw strength.

Building A Better Conventional Deadlift

Create: 05/04/2006 - 06:17
The new Society of Strength forum has a good discussion on how to go about building a better conventional deadlift.

My conventional deadlift sucks balls, but for a few reason I have switched from sumo to conventional and am now trying to figure out the most efficient way to develop a decent pull. I've talked with EC about this, as well as my training partners and any other lifters who pullmore than I can who would talk to me. The general consensus is (for my weakpoints, some of this stuff may not be useful for everyone); -Starting strength: Snatch-grip deadlifts, for sets or 5, 4 or 3 (with or without straps). These put your body in a relatively shitty position to pull from the floor and set you up in a shitty position for the low/mid-ranges of a deadlift. These, coupled with deficit speed pulls, are going to be the way I get some speed and power off of the floor.
