Powerlifting is not good for volleyball. I played with 2 of my bosses and some other people today and I totally sucked. My arms are too heavy to spike correctly anymore... :cry:

That's all I wanted to say.

OH great! There went my hopes of being a pro beach volleyball player. At 5"8" and 225 I really thought I could play if my bench was over 600:strong: :cry:

Interesting... if only one could powerlift without getting big... then we'd all be awesome vballers :D

Then I'd quit powerlifting.....and probably kill myself.

Couldn't resist that one after seeing the Elite videos.

Hate to be 'that guy' but maybe you suck at volleyball because you don't practice much and not because you powerlift. I would think that squatting more would let you jump higher and powerlifting would help with motor control. Maybe you should play more volleyball for GPP...

I think you're that guy. Besides, powerlifters don't belong on the volleyball court; they belong at the all you can eat buffet.

Try telling that to Dizenzo or Rhodes or Wolfe.

HomeYield - you saw the video on EliteFTS? Thanks for rubbing it in.

BTW - I may be fat, but I can still dunk a basketball. It's a Larry Bird style dunk, but a dunk nonetheless!

So who knows what BUFFET stands for?

How tall are you? That is pretty damn impressive.

That's funny, I played volleyball in the pool with one of those beach balls last night and the big arms didn't hinder me at all. :D

Douglas - I'm 6'4" about 300lbs. Before I started lifting I played Arena Football and I played in college with Jim Wendler. So, there was a time in my life when I was fast and athletic and attractive to women.

All good things must come to an end. Just playin bro, don't eat me. I'm too small. Wouldn't be very filling.

I've come to grips with the fact that I no longer wet women's panties. So sad, but true.

HAHAHA!!! Yeah, like I used to run cross-country....now I can't even drive cross-country.

Same for me. I told my lady the other day "Baby, take a good look at this. Because this is as good as it gets."

I've come to the conclusion that it's more fun to scare small children to death, than it is to pick up slutty girls.......no...wait, let me re-think that one.

Mr Callahan - I've found that the bigger I get, the more girls want to talk to me. Especially when I'm over 300. I have a date with a hot little number who used to be a gymnast and a cheerleader in college. I hope my triceps don't give out, because I might kill her if I fall on her. Of course, it all depends on how drunk I can get her. I hope she puts me in a headlock and punches me in the face.

At 6'2" and 215 lbs, I sincerely doubt your arms are too heavy to spike the ball.


Jus sayin....

Funny thread.... Just noticed it was old.

Everyone know though that powerlifting isn't for volleyball.... Big arms are not aerodynamic.... You gotta do toning workouts. Im thinking Denise Austin FTW!!!

I'll tell you one thing powerlifting is not good for.... getting you into shape for tying your damned shoes. It gets closer to a meet and the more warm up, the more struggle it takes and the harder it is. Its just not right when it takes 2 hits of nose torque and an oxygen mask when you are done.... ;-)

Op, sounds like you have bad shoulder mobility and some upper bod imbalances. Balance out your body, and your arms won't feel so "heavy"
