Hi.   I'm 42 and have struggled my whole life as a hard gainer. I'm 6'4" and 180 lbs, I know I've also struggled with increasing food intake and I've supplemented with gainers for calorie intake, and all it's left me with is a bit of a gut. I can't do a pull up or chin up so that's out of th...

Powerlifting 3 Answers
So I was at my gym preparing for my max and one of my friends who also lifts said the only reason he watches me deadlift is because of the dumb things I say to hype myself up. I'm going to do my max 365 and it looks like I'm not going to lockout but then at the top of my lungs I scream " this is...

Well Ben Pollack says all kind of shit literally mid-deadlift, and he's on his way to break ed coan's record, so it could work.

I have used one very similar to this at some temporary backwater gym. It was ok. Did the job. At least it has a split thigh pad.

You do you man. Can't worry about any other people when you lift. You lift for you so whatever helps you with lifting do. I'm usually silent. Even at meets if I hit a huge PR I usualyl just shrug my shoulders and walk away

I'm surprised you're able to articulate a complete sentence when locking out a DL PR.  Tells me you're good for a bit more.  That said, as long as you're not yelling something offensive, then do or say whatever it takes.

I got mine from Anderson Powerlifting but there are a ton of options. SBD, Titan, etc.

Respect

T_M says

People start lifting for a lot of different reasons.  At your age, it's not at all unusual to believe you will be treated with more respect, admiration or even fear if you look jacked.  But beware of thinking you're some kind of bad ass just because you're strong and/or muscular.  Learn how to reign in your temper...do some introspection to find out why you react the way you do to simple things. Use strength training as a healthy outlet and as part of an overall fitness regimen.  You're pretty strong for a 14 year old.  Train smart and avoid injury.  And have some fun!

Respect

RJorg says

Got to get a handle on that rage, buddy. But you'll fit right in with some aspects of the powerlifting culture. A lot of totally unhinged guys in this sport.

sloggettstrength says

Dude he's trolling hard. One cannot type so much memey shit in one post without being a massive troll.

That's what I am saying; glad I'm not the only one thinking that.

LeoTouchdown says

I just get the troll vibe because you're focusing on something that even on TRT would only give minuscule gains vs what is actually important. Training, diet and recovery. Even things as simple as those play a roll on testosterone levels. I know all about low T; I was on TRT for slightly over a year and finally decided to stop it because it was not worth the money for practically no difference in mood, gains, etc. To be honest, after straight stopping TRT I feel better now than before it and even while on it. I put more focus on what matters, rather than stressing on something small. For record, I was 197ng/dl; but I never paid attention to what really mattered in the world of testosterone - free testosterone levels, not total. Even with 197ng/dl my free test levels were high end of normal range; even when I was on TRT and taking 330mg test cyp a week - which barely got me to 500ng/dl total my free testosterone did not move. Don't focus on total testosterone levels - free is what is important.

 

But again dialing in your training, diet and recovery will net you far better results right now. You're still a beginner. 

Dude he's trolling hard. One cannot type so much memey shit in one post without being a massive troll.
