Serious? I thought the OP was hilarious. I think you're wound a little too tight if this thread really bothers you.


You just proved atypical's point.:)

I agree, Caltene bars suck. They make elimination a pain in the ass.

You don't have many posts, so go find what I'm talking about. As a writer, this shouldn't be hard for you to do.

I'm a writer, not a reporter.;) As the refuter, it is up to you to provide the evidence against.

Nah, last time I tried to point this out to you you simply ignored it. I imagine it was due to your own embarrassment, but I'm no psychic. Here's an opportunity for you to learn something, so seize it.

I don't mind being slammed on the internet, but if you're going to do so, at least make it about something. So far you've shown me nothing. I have no idea who you are or what you're talking about.

I always thought people called it the "Tail under position". That's what I've heard it called. Butt Wink sounds gross.

As for the other things:

1) Please post a video if you are going to ask questions about your form, mobility, or any kind of exercise improvement topic. I really can't see why this cannot be done.

2) I'm tired of the attitude that you just have to "deal" with injuries, as if it comes with the territory of being a powerlifter. I recently asked how to fix my shoulder, and people basically said "that's just the way it is; deal with it". IMO that's not good enough, that's lazy. I'm not saying that you have to do bikram yoga to bible verses in your back yard every day, but I'm tired of the idea that holistic fitness and being a kickass powerlifter are mutually exclusive. I understand that sometimes you have to suck it up, but that shouldn't mean that you should stop actively looking for ways to improve yourself in this sense.

3) Advice should be given from the strong to the weak.

4) Please don't try to push your ways on other people. For example, if a person starts a thread on how to do high bar squats, don't come in preaching how Westside does wide stance box squats.

5) Same thing as 4) but with raw vs. gear.

Ive seen this taken way too far on another forum . it was actually stated that nobody should ever seek ANY training advice or programming methodology on the internet . ......the only method to use is that of the person making the statement........who happens to sell training DVD's on the internet .

What needs to be stopped is this bullshit thing people do when they say they're "drug free." No one really gives a shit whether or not you use gear.

If you use this belt, I will laugh at you: http://www.inzernet.com/...ODUCT_ID=PRBELT
It's 'gimicky' and in no way can you look like a badass while you're cranking on that stupid ratchet. I've personally seen a guy prepping for a PR on the deadlift using that belt. He started to pace back and forth, snort his ammonia cap, then start pulling on the ratchet to tighten the belt and it would squeak.

His 3 training partners and other buddies in the gym just busted out laughing (this is the kind of gym where everybody knows everybody). For the record, no one messed up his lift by laughing, but he gets hell for using it all the time. I think he just keeps it because he feels dumb for spending so much money and now feels obligated.

infinite_shore always seems like such a fucking tool. I'm trying my hardest to get stronger than he is so I can make fun of him someday. I think I'm about there on bench, but I've got a lot of fucking work to do on squats and deadlifts.


hahahaha! One of the biggest motivation.
