Seems like I know who isn't getting rid of his ego properly.
What do you think people are more attracted to, someone who looks big but isn't strong ("aesthetic") or someone who looks like he can fight and protect himself and those he love?
Girls want that Greek ideal, someone who is physically fit, both strong and with high endurance, but also intellectually adept. A real man should be swole of body and mind.
Normal people hardly care about powerlifters and strongmen unless they show off their strength. An aesthetic young man is far more impressive both in looks and strength to their eyes. They assume that shredded = strong. This is kinda true as even if you train for hypertrophy you'll still be way stronger than the average man. Also, both suck at fighting.
There's no "real man" as everybody has his own definition.
>implying someone who trains for strength who isn't fat as fuck wouldn't be considered aesthetic in the eyes of non-lifters
You said it yourself, "who isn't fat as fuck". Normally if you lift for stength you're not supposed to care about your abs or bodyfat unless you want to say in x class division. Just look at Jason Blaha.

Are power cleans getting you weird looks?
I swear to god anytime i clean the bar either for OHP or power cleans, some one is staring at me when i look into the mirror.
People be staring like they're watching two extict black rhinos pegging each other with chillys, jammed hadtily into their hooves.
Are cleans autistic? Im by no means using impressive weight. I think its the actual motion which is warranting the stares. Please help, i hate drawing attention to myself!

Yeah when I went they acted weird & kept bringing up the gym even though I tried to hide gains. In hindsight it was like $350 a month for 150mg a week. For the same price, I was able to buy a 16 week cycle of 500mg a week, including ancillaries PCT, etc..
by the way just get private bloodwork online. You get to see all your levels & its more accurate, the ones they do to test for trt are just a preliminary test... i don't know what the fuck im talking about but there's different methods to test, and they use a cheap inaccurate one. For example they told me my total test was about 500, but they had no idea what my free test or estradol was.
Why would you check your test levels? Are literally so insecure that you need to cling on some random number that varies dramatically over time anyway? Jesus, /fit/ is really not good for some people. If I imagine the awkwardness of that situation I get shivers.
Been lifting semi-seriously for two and a half months /fit/. Do you see potential here or should I just an hero now?
I recently joined the gym, my goal is to lose weight. I'm a big guy so I've got pretty far to go. About 35kgs/77lbs.
My first time at the gym I was really nervous but pushed on. But I noticed some random guy and his friend staring at me. It was really uncomfortable sort of staring. Whilst I was on the treadmill and rowing they both stared at my belly and my large size. Yeah I get it. I'm fat - that's why I'm at the fucking gym.
But it seems we have a similar schedule he or his friend or both are always there and always staring. It's totally killing my motivation and just making feel really fucking conscious and aware of my weight instead of my workout. Now I get anxious before going in for a workout and hate going to the gym. I've stopped going regularly.
So does benchpress.
When I squat, my lumbar region hurts like ass.
When I bench, the part near my shoulderblades kills me.
Any idea why? Max DL is 90kg.
how many fruits should i eat per day? because i eat 4-6 and im not sure if its good
Welcome to /plg/ Powerlifting General
>were you squatting prior? squatting then benching always gives me killer cramps
Yeah. I found that too. Maybe I just didn't have enough water and sodium to offset that
already posted on /soc/ and they said that i look like im obese because of my legs/butt
how do i lose that weight?
alright its probably floating around on 4chan anyway
Would /fit/ reccomended casein over whey?
Would /fit/ recommend casein over whey?
Actually Im curious too about the pros and cons of both. Most people I know drink whey isolate but I know some uber jacked guys who drink a gallon of milk a day.
Can we stop with the green man bullshit? This is getting ridiculous.
Guys if you arent doing pause reps for your 5x5 training youre never gonna make it. How much can you pause bench for 5?
5x5 paused bench 245, paused squat 275, paused diddly 365
What are the best sources of protein?
I mostly mean other than in meat, I'm not a vegetarian but I don't like eating massive quantities of meat, I can find it bit unappetising
are mushrooms any good for protein?
