Guys, you have to stop complaining about your shirts. I have held my tongue on this subject too long already. Stop complaining about how this shirt does not fit right or this company sucks--just start accumulating shirts. My basement looks like a shirt factory and I did not always get my shirts for free... You all want to learn how to run before you can walk. It is an art to learn the shirt. You will never learn that art by starting with a shirt that you cannot touch shit in. You must do two things to get better. First, get stronger. Second, learn to use the shirt (that mainly means find someone who can teach you in person)... Now, stockpile some shirts. Learn how to work them or just lift fucking raw!
I feel like my low back endurance, by which I guess I mean ability to hold a good strong arch, and good form, is keeping me from doing as many sets or as many exercises as I would like. I'm good for some high intensity sets, but just so much and then my back says no more and tightens up.
I have been a gym rat for about 18yrs but never trained seriously... In 2000 I had a heart attack and wound up with triple bypass surgery, thought I would never lift again. But I got the bug about a yr later and I told myself I would do one more gym meet if I could just get 315, well at the gym meet I did 335 and I got it touch with Gene and he set me up with a program for full meets and I started to train for real. In my first full meet I did a 475 squat and a 365 bench and a 405 dead. Two years and five meets later I just became the IPA 60-64 Masters Champion 275 Weight Class with a 1620 Elite Total--Squat 620 Bench 485 and Dead 515. And I aint done yet. I love this sport.
- IPF Open, Jr, or Masters or Bench
- WABDL Open bench or dl, Masters?
- APF Open
- WPO 3 lift title and bench
To me if your going to call yourself a world champion, there should be a bit of competition at the show. Simply entering more than one divisions at one World show doesn't make you a two time world champ does it? ...If you lift uncontested are you a world champion?
I don't think they exist in powerlifting anymore.
A Go Heavy poster wants to know what the all-time record Wilks point total is at an IPF World Championship event. A couple of responses yield the answer.
On the men's side it's Sergey Fediosenko at 114 with 657.88, followed by Jaroslaw Olech at 148 with 641.85, and then Mike Bridges at 181 with 638.0.
On the women's side it's Priscilla Ribic at 148 with 654.30, Marina Kudinova at 165 with 654.22, and Larysa Vitsyevska at 132 with 651.93.
What! I want to be part of the team too! [Frown] I feel left out, like the last kid picked kind of, Kara's got me on a new bulking diet so dont count me out just yet,, im growing as we speak!
Train with your shirt weekly It literally took me an entire year to get used to the groove of a denim shirt. Each shirt you use will have a different groove which will vary depending on how low you adjust the collar... By training with the shirt each week you will not only be able to handle heavier weights, you will also learn the groove of your shirt.
Training with stronger guys is good but be careful when training with people who have better recovery than you. Don't get sucked into doing more than your body can handle.
You'll have to visit the thread for the answer!
